12 WAYS TO CREATE YOUR OWN STAYCATION GETAWAY
Even if you're not taking a trip this holiday weekend, you still deserve some vacation vibes. A staycation can be just as wonderful, but you've got to be creative. Here are some fun ways to spruce up your home and make it feel like a unique destination.
Update your guest room
If you have a spare bedroom you use as a guest room, now is the time to spruce it up a bit. Transform it into a private retreat you can use on weekends when you need a change in scenery.
Upgrade your linens
Enjoy a taste of the fabulous life by upgrading your linens. You don't have to keep them on your bed all the time, but there's nothing wrong with breaking out the good stuff from time to time.
Organize your toiletries
Don't you just love staying in a hotel and seeing all those fancy toiletries grouped together? Maybe that's why we take them home with us. Recreate the same sentiment in your bathroom by displaying everyday and sample items in a chic way.
Change your bath accessories
Give yourself a taste of luxury by updating your bathroom accessories. Simple changes like using a single collection can create a streamline visual that adds value.
Host a pamper party
Call up your girlfriends and host an intimate pampering session at your home. Compared to fancy day spas, this will save you hundreds and keep the good times going. Feel free to offer pampering items or make it a B.Y.O.P. (bring your own polish) event.
Stock up on wine
Nothing can make a vacation or day off work more relaxing than a wonderful bottle of wine. This is a great opportunity to host a mini wine tasting, or keep them to yourself for a weekend of indulgence.
Make your own spa treatments
Honey save your cash with high-priced spa treatments. As an alternative, make your own for some much needed pampering in the comforts of your own home.
Create areas of laziness
Sometimes you just need to lounge around your home in something other than a chair or bed. Create areas of relaxation or laziness around your home–both indoors and outside.
This is a really simple date night idea that can transform small bites and even leftovers. Organize a small picnic inside your home with wine, candles and romantic background music.
Serve breakfast in bed
Did someone order room service? Have someone in your house treat you to breakfast in bed (you can always make it yourself) for a lazy morning between the sheets.
Consider the kitchen closed for business on your staycation. Ready your stack of menus so you can order food.
Here's an idea the whole family can enjoy. Pitch a tent in your backyard, pack up your dinner and enjoy a fun night underneath the stars.
