A Farewell to Fall

April-ChristensenToday is Thanksgiving, which is certainly a time to be appreciative, but also collectively a time to  goodbye to autumn and a hello to winter. We know it can be heard to let go of orange sunsets, colorful trees, and crisp afternoons. That is exactly why we are giving you a little eye candy by April Marie Photography. We asked April to share her captivating fall photography and to share what she loves about Thanksgiving!

Holidays-02“Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! I enjoy planning sessions during this time of year, and not just because of all the beautiful, bright colors. It’s so much fun to shoot a laughing family, playing in the leaves. Or a young lady, embracing the cool weather with a scarf and a thick, wooly sweater.”

Holiday How-To: Guest Bedroom Essentials

The holidays are right around the corner which means lots of shopping, eating, and time spent with loved ones. You may find yourself hosting a festive soiree or two, or perhaps you are accommodating out of town guests. Whether your company popped in for a quick holiday cocktail or are staying with you until the New Year, here are a few tips on making your home as comfortable for your guests as possible.

Guest Bedroom JPEGInvest in quality linens. Above all, we want our guests to be comfortable and restful in our homes, so fresh and luxury bed linens are a great place to start. Our favorite brands are Pine Cone Hill, Traditions, and Bella Notte. Don’t forget the towels! A plush towel will make your friends and family feel like they are staying in a swanky boutique hotel.

Clean out the clutter. If you are expecting people over, a tidy home is both appealing and practical since there will be more room for people to move around. In your guest or spare room where overnight guests will be, try to remove unnecessary knick-knacks and odd items that always find their way into that spare room. While you may love your antique teddy bear collection, your guests will probably not want to share the bed with them! Scout by Bungalow has some stylish and functional storage options that we love.

Provide toiletries. Ever started unpacking your suitcase on vacation and realize you forgot dental floss? Happens to me almost every time. A cute little basket with the essentials will be greatly appreciated by any forgetful guest and can eliminate the need to make an impromptu run to the store.

Pamper your guests! In the room, include your favorite (or their favorite!) scented candle and a decorative match box. Leave a pretty glass pitcher with a pair of glasses for a midnight glass of water. Bring in a vase of fresh seasonal flowers. Tuck a snuggly throw into the foot of the bed. In my book, it’s the little touches like these that will brighten your guests’ stay.

No matter how long the visit remember to enjoy each and every guest that knocks on your door! Creating memories is what the holidays are for!
