1. Prep Prep Prep! The real work comes in the prepping.  As we all know, most good parties are in some way centered around food and drinks.  So tip number one is to cook in advance.  Make sure everything is made before the event so that you can clean and clear up the kitchen before your guests arrive.  Doing this will give you more space to entertain, and will also ensure that you have time to talk with them rather than worry about cooking food while they are there!

2. Move the furniture.  Chances are you have your furniture set up in a way that is conducive to lounging and doing other practical things around your house.  When you are hosting a party, you want to make sure there is space for your guests to sit and eat but also move around and talk to each other. It might be a good idea to move larger items out of the way like a tv or a tv stand, coat rack, or extra chairs that are in the way.

3. Find new ways to use what you’ve got.  Don’t have room for a bar cart and ice bucket? Try filling your sink with ice and using it to house your sodas, wine and beer. Don’t have a full dining room table? Throw a tablecloth over your coffee table and it will feel more like a place to dine than you thought.

4. Create a signature cocktail.  Want to trick and treat your guests?  Instead of stocking the bar with every type of alcohol imaginable, create a signature cocktail (maybe 2 options) so that you can reduce the amount of stuff to buy and take up space.  Your guests will love it and be totally impressed!

5. Personalize. This is another great party trick. Have your guests label their glasses.  If you are using plastic cups, put out sharpies so that they can write their name on them, or if you are using glass, put out cute little drink charms that they can add to the stem of their glass.  Doing so will make them feel special, and it will also ensure that they hold on to their glass the whole night, which will reduce the amount of cups used and dishes to wash later.

6. Rise Up! Use trays for the food that have tiers.  You will be able to fit more food out and take up less space in the meantime.  Stack desserts all on one tiered tray for a beautiful displace and a great way to provide lots of options in just one spot.

7. Anticipate the cleanup.  By the end of the night, you will inevitably have some cleaning up to do.  Make sure that you have a garbage can or bag out/visible to your guest during the party so that they can dispose of anything throughout the night.  If you don’t have a dishwasher, it’s probably best if you use paper or plastic and throw it out at the end of the night.

8. Have fun! The last one is a no-brainer, but sometimes we need to remind ourselves that the reason we are having the party is to have fun.  You’ve invited your guests over for a great occasion, so enjoy spending time with your guests and have fun!
