Guest post- How to plan a perfect party at your apartment!

This article is provided by Jake.

Planning a party can be stressful, especially if you live in
an apartment. It can be difficult to
find apartments that are affordable and still have enough space to host a
get-together. You may wonder to yourself,
I have enough room for everyone? Will the party cause any issues with the
Don’t worry. With a few pointers you can throw a fantastic party
that even you as the host can enjoy.

Keep it Simple

One of the most important party planning tips is to keep it
simple. This does not mean you can not have plenty of fun touches, but do not let
it spin out of control. Remind yourself why you are having the party in the
first place. Is it a house warming party, birthday or holiday celebration?
Either way, you are probably inviting family and friends over to hang out and
have a good time. You can make it special without going overboard.

Planning the Party

The first step is to make a list. Start with your guest list
and send out the invites. The sooner everyone knows about the party, the more
people will be able to come. Next, determine whether or not you will have a
theme. Obviously if the party is for a specific occasion (holiday, birthday,
baptism, sporting event) the theme will take care of itself. If you are just
having friends over, you may want to consider a fun theme such as 70s or 80s
costumes, Hawaiian luau or Mardi Gras.

A theme can help set the stage for the decorations and maybe
even the food. Make a list of the decorations you will need and the food you
plan to serve. A detailed list will help minimize multiple trips to the store.

Setting Up the Party
in an Apartment

Parties hosted in rental properties require creative uses of space. You want to make sure you have
enough room for just about everyone to sit or at least stand. Consider moving
furniture around or even out of the room on the day of the party. Make sure to
organize the seating in a way that will encourage conversation and mingling. A
semi-circle is much better than a line of chairs along the wall.

Also consider where the food and beverages will be placed.
People tend to hang out around the food (especially appetizers), so place
munchies on tables that are easily accessible. When it comes to the main
course, some people find apartments to be too small for sit-down dinners, but
you can serve food buffet style. If you are doing this, make sure it will be
easy enough to move through the line and put things in a logical order with
plates/napkins at the beginning and condiments at the end.

It is also a good idea to remember to put a trash can where
everyone can see it and toss some coasters out to help protect your furniture.
