Delicious Soaps and Urchin Vases | Etsy Finds

natural handmade soaps on etsy :: urchin bowls by Heather Knight Ceramics

You can dress up your powder room with handmade soaps. It is an inexpensive way to decorate.

Simple Rules for When You Are Entertaining

Simply pay attention to the way you present the soap bars to make it attractive. Be imaginative with the container that will hold your extra soap bars. If you put a similar soap bar, people will know they can use the extra bars when needed.

If you host a big party, you can add a place card that says Feel free to use next to your pile. Also prepare a basket with rolls of toilet papers. This way, you do not have to check during the party if there is enough toilet supply.
