Dinner Party in Your Apartment
July 22, 2015
One of the bigger complaints apartment residents have finding space to have lots of guests over, especially for a dinner party. Sure, you could throw a party with 25-35 people all over the apartment, but when it comes down to having an intimate dinner with, maybe, 10 people, it’s tight quarters. Well, we have some ideas!
Rearrange the Furniture
It’s OK. You can do it! It’s just for a few hours and, even though the feng shui in your home is perfect, creating a different space for and dinner with good friends is very easy. Move the couch to a far wall to make room for the table you are borrowing or have shoved in the corner since it’s mainly used for just one or two people. Don’t have a large enough table? Ask a neighbor to borrow one! Do you have a large comfy chair? Move it to your bedroom for the evening. Coffee table or ottoman? Same thing. Be creative!
What about those smaller things hanging around your apartment? Banish them! No one is using the tub. Put things like magazines, your bike or sports equipment behind the shower curtain. These are your friends. If they look there when in the bathroom, they’ll think you’re brilliant!
What About a Buffet?
If it’s just impossible to have a large enough table, consider using the table you have our breakfast bar our countertop for buffet area and let everyone grab their plates, grab their food and find a place to sit in the living room. You could also ask your friends to bring folding chairs with them then everyone has a place to sit rather than cross-legged on the floor.
If you want to create an inviting space and show you are ready for a party, consider a few strings of light hung around the apartment. White ones are best for a casual dinner gathering, but, you know your style! Do it up!
The Larger Party
Remember, all McKenzie Apartment properties have large common areas/Club Rooms that can be reserved for parties. They have kitchen space, seating space and plenty of room for the dinner party that might be a little larger than your apartment space. Give you property manager a call to reserve the space!
