Are you finally settled into your new apartment and ready to show it off to friends and family? When you live in our beautiful apartments for rent in Delray Beach, FL, you can enjoy all the space and amenities during your first party with your guests. Hosting a dinner party can be made easy with the right preparation and planning. These are a few steps you should take when you are preparing to host guests in your new apartment.
When you are hosting a party in your apartment, try to keep the guest list small. By inviting too many people, you may realize that you struggle to find the space for everyone to sit comfortably, and this can add excessive stress to your preparations. A small guest list will provide you with a manageable amount of people that can actually fit comfortably at tables in your apartment. Also, it can give you the perfect, intimate dinner setting to enjoy your first hosting experience.
You may need to move some furniture to make room for tables that can sit everyone for dinner. Consider putting couches against the wall and move any coffee tables or ottomans to make room for more table seating. When you do this, you may be surprised at how you can simply maximize space for this type of event.
The last thing you want to do is spend the entire time cooking in your kitchen. When you plan a difficult meal, you may not leave any time to enjoy talking and mingling with your guests. Instead of planning an intricate and detailed menu, choose something simple. Consider items that you can make ahead so that you can just pop them in the oven on party day. When you make the cooking easier, you can enjoy hosting your event.
Free up some counter space by making an area specifically for beverages. The kitchen space and refrigerator may be full of cooking utensils and ingredients for the actual meal, so you need to get creative with a drink station. Add a drink cart or put up a folding table in the living space to encourage guests to mingle and use all space in your apartment. This will also create flow throughout your party.
You may have rearranged the furniture and planned the perfect meal, but now it is time to add some ambience to the area. Consider adding some basic décor, like a vase of fresh flowers or a few lit candles, to create a space that makes people feel cozy and at home.
