We couldn't be more excited for this week! Why? You ask. Well, we just so happen to be having our Annual NEAT Summit Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday! Yep, you heard us right! ALL the NEAT girls will be together, taking Chicago by storm in just a couple short days!
In honor of our soon-to-be NEAT guests, it seems only fitting that we share some of our favorite tips & tricks to help you prep next time you have house guests!
Apartment Therapy has a clever idea of creating a Houseguest Welcome/Survival Kit! This sincere little package includes anything from neighborhood maps, public transportation tickets, a list of hot spots for food & shopping, and a set of house keys. How thoughtful would you seem if you had this for your guests??
Now what all needs to be in the guest corridors?? We've narrowed it down to a few of our go-to NEAT things to help you prep your houseguests for a stressfree stay!
:: extra black slimline hangers for your guests to hang their clothes :: a Rosanna Bowl for guests to toss their small belongings (ie jewelry) :: a box of tissues :: an extra blanket incase they get chilly :: a set of fresh clean towels ::
And as for toiletries, we recommend a guest basket under the bathroom sink (if space will allow). We fill ours with: a blow dryer, extra hair products, toothbrushes, toothpaste, advil, and hairspray!
Our friends over at Style Me Pretty have the genius idea of also prepping a cocktail station for your guests arrival. "After planes, trains, and automobiles your guests are likely to be a bit exhausted from the travel so greet them with a 'house' cocktail and a proper toast to kick off what will hopefully be a relaxing and enjoyable stay!"
We couldn't agree more! Cheers to ALL the NEAT girls arriving!
