    It's amazing how transformative a good, clean bath mat can be, isn't it?

    It seems rather luxurious to have something as delicate as flowers in such a place as a bathroom, but that is just what I love about it. Pick a single bloom or bunch a humble clump of blossoms in a casual vase, and your guests will feel right special, as they should.

    I love the idea of color-coding your towels anyway, don't you?

    Don't be stingy with the towels! The worst feeling ever is when you've just finished a shower in an unfamiliar bathroom and suddenly you are unsure of where the towels are and whether they are currently "claimed" by permanent householders. Keep a good stack of fluffly towels somewhere obvious (possibly even in the guest room?) and mitigate this pending disaster!

    One of my favorite things to do is prepare a basket of shower essentials. I like to include travel-sized shampoo and conditioner, a razor, a fresh bar of soap, a loofah or bath sponge, and leave it on the guest bed.

    Extra blowdryer, and other necessities
    I almost never remember to pack a blow dryer when I travel, it is like some weird kind of brain block. Other commonly forgotten necessities? Toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant. Keep a couple spares in an easy-to-reach location and you'll win for Best Hostess Ever, no contest.
