House Guests: Preparing

Tuesday night, my best friends Korryn and Claire flew into SF and I could not be happier to have them in town! Whenever I have people staying in my apartment, I always get a little nervous because it's such a small space, so I go out of my way to make sure my guests are taken care of and have anything and everything they need to feel comfortable. A few touches I add are: fresh flowers (everywhere), candles constantly burning, snacks galore (I try to stock favorites I know my guests love, but also keep fresh fruit and veggies, wine, sparkling water and snacks always on hand), fresh towels and linens out and available, and presents (because we haven't yet exchanged Christmas gifts!). I also do a deep clean before guests arrive to ensure everything is perfect for their arrival.

Do you have any go-to tips to prepare for house guests?
