Small Space Solutions: Throwing a Best-Rated Apartment’s Housewarming Party

Housewarming partyAfter many weeks of searching, it’s finally happened: that dream best-rated apartment’s yours. It’s in a great location, has all the amenities you need, and is just the right size. After you’ve unpacked, decorated, and organized your best-rated apartment’s small space, it’s time to truly make it a home and have a housewarming party. Housewarming parties are a great way to show off your new best-rated apartment’s space to friends and family, and also an opportunity to invite your neighbors over and get to know them. But when a best-rated apartment’s square-footage is a little lacking it can be hard to plan the kind of housewarming party bash that you want to. However, with a little creativity and an open mind, housewarming parties in a small apartment are a snap. Here’s how to make your best-rated apartment’s housewarming party a big success, no matter how small your apartment is!

Be Clean and Pristine

When you don’t have a lot of space to work with, a clean apartment is a must for a party in tight quarters. Tidy up, wipe down every surface, and secure or put away your breakables. Lots of people in a little space usually includes some jostling, and you don’t want a vase or picture frame to pay the price.

Say “Welcome!”

There’s nothing quite as embarrassing as knocking on the wrong door in search of a friend’s apartment. If your best-rated apartment’s location is a little hard to find in a big apartment complex, help your guests find your place by adding some decorations and a “Come on in!” sign to your front door. It doesn’t have to be cutesy or huge, but make sure it’s noticeable.

AppetizersSkip the Forks and Knives

You probably don’t have a lot of seating and table space at your disposal in a small apartment, which means that serving up anything that requires cutlery can make for awkward eating. Stick to finger foods that your guests can pick up and nosh while they mingle. Think kebabs, crudités, or anything that can be baked in cupcake tin (and you might be surprised how many food groups that last one can encompass).

Get Creative with Seating and Serving

If you do want to add some extra seating, put out every stool, pillow, and miscellaneous chair you’ve got. Also, utilize all of your horizontal surfaces. Coffee tables, kitchen counters, end tables, kitchen tables: all are fair game for setting out food, drink, napkins, cups, and plates.
