Paper Roses - Special Touches for Guests

I love to see the ways different people make guests feel welcome in their homes. This Easter I visited my brother and sister-in-law and, maybe it's because I'm a blogger, but I was fascinated by their guest bathroom!

The toilet paper was twisted into a rose:



Of course, I had to take it apart and figure out how this was done. This is what I figured out...twist the loose end of the roll four times around your first two fingers. Next, push the next bit of paper closest to the roll up through the center from behind. Ta da!



The tissue was also fashioned into a bow with two tissues, one for the bow and an extra one was folded lengthwise and wrapped around the center to resemble the knot:



Disposable, monogrammed towels were set on the sink and the bowl was filled with marbles:



I got busted while photographing the toilet paper, so we posed for a picture!



Little touches like this made me feel welcomed and special. Try it next time you have guests!

To thank them for their hospitality, we promptly broke their screen door:

  2. Bahaha!!! It could be worse - one of my girlfriends boys "couldn't find the toilet" so he peed in their waste basket but didn't tell her until after they left. She could have died!!! BTW the waste basket was NEXT to the toilet LOL!!!

    Happy Wednesday!
