to maximize your living room space for a party
If you have put
off holding a party because your house or living room is too
small, start planning! You can easily maximize your space
- even a seemingly small apartment space - to host your party
First, push your
sofas right against the wall. If you had a trendy high table
behind it, place the table in a hallway or other space to
be used by people to place their drinks on.
Move your coffee
table to one side so that there is maximum moving space in
your living room, and room for people to stand and chat together,
something that is harder to do with a coffee table (or two)
smach dab in the middle of the living room.
Have two food tables
- one in the living room and one in the kitchen, or one at
either end of the living room. This will help prevent the
situation where everyone is trying to crowd into the same
space to get their appys.
of 2-3 chairs in different areas, allowing people to spread
out and chat, rather than everyone vying for a space on the
one sofa. This allows people to be social, yet not crowded.
If you don't have enough chairs, ask friends if they can loan
you one or two chairs - even simple kitchen chairs - so you
can pull it off.
No dining room
table? Transform your coffee table into a table and place
low cushions around it that people can sit on around the table.
