Will you have guests in your home during the holiday season? Many of us will and some of those will be overnight guests. Doesn’t it seem to make your home feel even more warm and cozy to have guests during the holidays!

If you are anything like me, the guest bath gets extra attention in preparation for guests. I get excited about doing a little holiday decor update. So let’s get started.

First give the bathroom a good cleaning. Our guests bath is very small with a tiny little cabinet so organization is key which means cut the clutter.

This was my situation as I began to clean our little guest bath! I have no idea how this happens! Things just seem to migrate in there. You would think that bathroom would be super clean with all those cleaning supplies in there too! What is missing from this cabinet?

Once my cleaning was done, I planned a trip to Target. I have always enjoyed shopping at Target, especially in the home decor department. I know that area by heart in my store, do you? 

The very first thing on my shopping list for the guest bath is Quilted Northern Ultra Soft Plush® Mega Rolls. It’s our brand and there is currently a Target Cartwheel offer  for 10% off! I loaded the offer to my Cartwheel app and headed out the door!

That empty spot on the shelf at my Target is where the Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Mega Rolls would be but apparently everyone knows about the Cartwheel offer and purchased all of those first. The Mega rolls are larger and lasts longer which gives me peace of mind knowing my guests won’t have to deal with empty rolls.

After adding Quilted Northern Ultra Soft Plush® Mega Rolls to my shopping cart, I picked up some pretty new holiday print hand towels and a red with white polka dots rug. My Momma never let us actually use the nice pretty holiday hand towels, did yours?  “Those are just for looking at”, she would say.

Now that the guest bath is nice and clean and I’ve stocked up on Quilted Northern Ultra Soft Plush® Mega Rolls along with my new decor, I’m ready to prepare the space.

Our little cabinet looks much better now that it is organized with only the necessities. Our guests will not run out of Quilted Northern Ultra Soft Plush® Mega Rolls! Now let’s move on to adding a few of those fancy hotel touches I mentioned.

One of those personal touches is an under the counter space for guests to place their personal items. The toilet paper basket we used will slide back making ample space.

Install a fresh roll of toilet paper and give it that fancy looking ‘V’ fold just like you find in hotels. It’s really easy. Simply fold the two corners under creating a point.

Go the extra mile by giving your towels a hotel touch with an easy fold and tuck in either a gift or a decor item like these gold Christmas balls. See the video below for the easy fold I used. 

The focal decor in our home this holiday season is red and gold ornaments so it was fun to carry our theme into guest bath. 

You know those nice cotton cloth napkins you only use once or twice a year? Roll them and leave them in the guest bath this holiday season for hand drying. It’s a simple fold and I’ll show you how in a quick video below.

Our family will be here for a party later in the season. They will recognize our Santa napkin  holder from their Granny’s Christmas decor. His gold rim fits perfect into our theme. The Red & Gold Poinsettia wreath was a fun craft project here.

A few small updates to our guest bath helped to create a mega impact this holiday season!
