Most people get discouraged from throwing a party when they are only left with the option of using their small apartment. In the real sense, it is quite difficult to throw a comfortable and rocky party in a tiny room. But if you know your way around, you would surely organize the best. Do not be bothered as you can take advantage of the little space to get people to know themselves, feel more at home and less formal. So, here are tips to help you organize a dinner party in a small apartment.
Change your room setting
Every house has its own setting. Do not find it difficult to change the position of your furniture. If you decide to use your living room as the dinner site, you could pack the stuff in there to your dining room to get enough space. More so, if your guest room is closer to your living room, you can remove the curtains that demarcates the room from the living and make the place your desert room.
Prepare a place for guests to hang their coats and bags:
Guests will surely have to place their bags somewhere. Most likely they will have to place them around which can further tighten the available space. To control this, you can have a rack suitable for coats and racks at the side of the door. For easy identification, you can even divide the rack into sessions with names on each.
Keep a simple decoration
Little things fill in the available space. You may only decorate the center dining table and tie ribbons on chairs. Going all excessive with further reduce the space.
Make the night involving
Since its a house party, you may not be able to limit the number of persons that come around. Hence, ensure you add to the invited figure. As your guests arrive, ensure you welcome them with a lively mood. That will make them feel relaxed and accommodating to other party rockers. You could place a list of what the night will be about on the wall, so everyone can look forward to enjoying themselves.
Make refreshments ready before the party starts:
Ensure you are not cooking when the part is going as the heat might make guests uncomfortable. You need to know that cooking during the party will surely divide your attention which can make your guests lose interest in little or no time.
Things seem impossible because we have not tried to make it possible. It is time to have as much fun as you deserve irrespective of your housing space.
