What preparations do you make for company?

I have several family members coming to visit before the end of the month,  assorted stays and times.  The only overlap will be when my sister and granddaughter are here and I'm not sure if my sister will want to share the bed with my granddaughter. I'll ask them. 

What do you recommend that I do to make sure my company is comfortable?

I always have extra toothpaste and toothbrushes for company. And I make sure the sheets are freshly laundered.

I clean the entire house. shop and plan meals I know my guests have had here and enjoy. I make and have dessert which we normally dont .

Make sure bedrooms have fresh sheets, box of tissue on night stand, couple of paperbacks. I pout a candle and lighter in rooms of adults.  I put a stack of towels, washcloth, spongy net thing (use them instead of washcloths) on the dresser. If I know they are going to be traveling into the city I leave a copy of the train schedule.

I hadn't thought of food they can grab if they get hungry between meals-  good idea!

I have extra soap, clean the bathroom, put towels in there, wash sheets and pillow cases, vacuum, and make sure I have plenty of food and drinks.

I always vacuum, clean the kitchen, bathrooms.  My son has to clean his room.  My husband vacuums it.  Dust the electronics and any other things.  My dad wants to sleep in our apartment so we will wash the sheets/blanket this coming September when he is here with my step mom.  My dad lets me know if he wants to eat at our house before he visits.
