November 2, 2023

As the holiday season rolls in here in the Oklahoma City area, there’s an undeniable sense of excitement in the air. It's a time for joy, love and togetherness; a time when families and friends come together to create cherished memories. Whether you have family coming into town for the holidays or loved ones dropping by for festive celebrations, our team at Homes by Taber ® understands the significance of this season and the importance of welcoming your guests with open arms. With a variety of meticulously designed floor plans complete with Bonus Rooms throughout our new home communities in Oklahoma City, you can effortlessly transform these spaces into inviting guest suites to ensure that your loved ones feel just as at home as you do in your Proudly Overbuilt ® new home in OKC. 

Read below to hear from Oklahoma’s Favorite Builder ® as we explore our top tips to help you prepare your guest room to the fullest extent this holiday season.

Transform your Bonus Room into a serene haven

At Homes by Taber, we always design our new homes throughout OKC with families in mind. That’s why select Taber floor plans feature an included Bonus Room, which are incredibly versatile spaces that can serve a myriad of purposes, and with the holiday season, there’s never been a better opportunity to consider transforming your Bonus Room into a serene haven for your guests. With the convenience of attached bathrooms, these rooms are ideal for providing your visitors with a private oasis and their very own suite. However, even if you don't have a Bonus Room, our spacious, open bedrooms offer ample room for hosting your guests in a welcoming, comfortable environment. From cozy furnishings to soft lighting and elegant decor, you can easily create an atmosphere of tranquility where your loved ones can unwind after a day of festivities. Adding personal touches like fresh flowers, scented candles, plush pillows and warm blankets can elevate the ambiance even further, making your guests' stay truly memorable. 

By infusing your guest room with these thoughtful touches, you're not just offering a place to stay; you're creating a warm and inviting atmosphere where your guests can truly relax and enjoy their time with you this holiday season.

Create a warm welcome

Creating a memorable guest experience is all about the thoughtful details. When your guests arrive in town for the holiday season, consider leaving a unique gift or a heartfelt note in the guest room. It could be a basket of their favorite snacks and drinks, a selection of local OKC treats or even a personalized welcome card expressing your excitement to have them over. Additionally, providing a small bedside table with a reading lamp and a selection of books or magazines can offer your guests a relaxing evening retreat after the festivities are over. Additions like a phone charger, extra toiletries, bottled water, fresh towels, hangers, a note with the wifi password and a designated space for their belongings demonstrate your attention to their comfort, ensuring they have everything they need during their stay. 

By curating a welcoming atmosphere filled with personalized details, you not only create a comfortable environment - but also lasting memories that your guests will treasure long after the holiday season has passed. These gestures show that you've put thought into their visit, making them feel valued and cherished, which is exactly what the holidays are all about.
