Holiday houseguests are right around the corner—are you ready? Making your friends and family feel at home doesn’t have to mean spending a fortune, cooking for days and decorating to the nines. The most comfortable accommodations are often the most simple—a vase of fresh flowers, miniature soaps and toiletries, and a plush warm bed. As innkeeper Maureen Haddad says in a recent Star-Ledger holiday décor feature, “Bedding is very important—the mattress and the sheets and the comforter.” The best thing about bedding is that it can transform the most basic space. Pullout beds in small apartments have the potential of a five-star hotel—all you need is a Multi-Zone Foam Mattress Topper and the cuddly coziness of a Primary Down Comforter. Finish the bed with a couple of European Goose Down pillows or synthetic pillows, and you’ll have your guests making their reservations again for next year.

In her spare time she bakes copious amounts of yummy, not-so-good-for-you food; reminisces about how she used to have lots of spare time for reading; & does her best to keep her 3-year old, tiny-dictator-of-a-son away from certain danger.
