Not to Impress, But to Bless
I love to think that my guests will feel a little pampered when they spend time in our home. One small way that I pamper is by providing a wonderfully scented hand soap at the bathroom sink.
Just before guests arrive, I do a last minute check of the bathroom, to be sure that it looks clean and tidy, fresh towels are hanging, and a bottle of aromatic soap is on the farmhouse sink.
It really is a low cost way to pamper.
Several times a year, Bath & Body Works runs a sale on their hand soaps at five for $15. Does $3 per bottle still sound like too much? Well, if the scented soap goes out only when company is expected, it can last for quite a while!
I have also picked up inexpensive soaps at Marshalls, HomeGoods, and Christmas Tree Shop. Our local Walmart carries Mrs. Meyer's hand soaps, which I have purchased a few times.
You know, even a little person can appreciate a special touch. A few weeks ago it was our family's turn to host our homeschool co-op. When my grandson Ben (3) washed his hands before lunch, Bekah reports that he closed his eyes and gushed, "Mmmmmmmmm...smells like pears!"
It is a pleasure to pamper your guests!
Are you getting ready for the party?
