How to Be a Welcoming Host to Overnight Guests

Casa Quickie: Treat Overnight Guests

An overnight guest usually only requires a soft place to rest their head and a clean spot to wash up, but take your hosting skills a step further by welcoming them with a little treat. I've got a list of my immediate family and close friends' favorite confections, and whenever they're staying at my pad for the night, I always leave a bag of their favorite goodies on the bed waiting for them.

If I'm feeling extra ambitious, I'll wrap it up in something pretty with a tag that says, "Welcome." For everyone else whose sweet spot I don't have noted, I'll just put out an artisan chocolate candy bar or something most folks will enjoy. It's a simple gesture, but it goes a long way toward making visitors feel welcome.

I had to comment as I work in sales with Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. We are very keen on remembering our own guests' preferences and ensuring that they feel welcomed in the same sort of way. We've used favorite foods/candies/chocolates in the past, as well as a specific type of wine, etc. Way to go!
