With the holidays comes lots of guests. Whether you are hosting a large party, or keep a steady stream of intimate dinners between friends, it’s always nice to make your guests feel welcome. I usually aim for making them feel right at home, which is nice… but, on one of my recent stays in New Orleans I experienced one of the most fantastic displays in a hotel lobby bathroom. It was literally the most gorgeous restroom I’d ever experienced.

The layout was fabulous, but what really made it special was that upon walking in the smell was intoxicating. I felt like I had just been transported to a spa, I was instantly soothed. This got me thinking, perhaps I could get my guests to feel the same way. I imagine it’s a fun surprise to walk into a bathroom and suddenly feel at ease. Who knows, my guests may not want to come out!

Holiday Valet Tray

I created this festive valet tray to provide my guests with whatever they may need. I know whenever I visit a hotel/restaurant I am always grateful when there is service available with a spritz of perfume, or a little extra hairspray. So, I decided to add a few personal items to each layer of my tray.

  • I keep a few Poo~Pourri sprays in my bathroom at all times, particularly when I’m hosting guests. There is nothing worse than walking into an unpleasant odor from a previous visitor. On the flip side, there may not be anything worse than being afraid to use the restroom for fear you may be found out! The festive Secret Santa fragrance is by far my favorite during the holidays. These scents are all potent without being overwhelming, with spicy and citrus notes that smell delicious, even though its poo were dealing with here. Besides, its adorable packaging fits right in with my holiday valet tray.
  • To Stay Fresh: I added some mints, gum, floss, deodorant, or candy canes in case anyone wanted to freshen up before returning to the par-tay.
  • To stay primped: I added hair ties, bobby pins, clips, and hairspray.
  • Bonus: I added hand lotion and sanitizer gel for my germophobes.

When you look and smell your best, you feel your best, simple as that! I like to think this may be one of the reasons the convo has been excellent at any of our gatherings.

Completely masking any odor, think of it as a barrier of protection for your poo. Once I found these I seriously did not want to live without them. I keep on handy in every bathroom in the house, particularly the boys’ bathroom. Ugh.
