It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With some of the most widely celebrated holidays on the horizon, many of us are looking forward to entertaining our family and friends. As the guest list grows, so do our concerns on how to accommodate everyone in our small space. Not to worry, I’ve got ideas and tips for how to make a “crowded party” feel like an intimate gathering.
Dinner parties are the easiest to host in a small space especially when your focus is on the quality of the guest versus the quantity. Rearranging your furniture proves to be one of the best solutions to accommodating a larger than usual group. If your living space is bigger than your dining area, push the sofa back along the wall and move smaller pieces of furniture to other rooms. Creating a dining space in the living room allows you to take advantage of the larger square footage. It may feel a bit awkward at first, but keep in mind that the people closest to you are not inconvenienced by your smaller space; they are more focused on good times they share with you.
