1. Make a permutation
Than fewer things indoors, the more people will be able to stay there. Prepare a room for a party. Take out to the other room or to the balcony everything superfluous: whatnot, footstools, coffee table, cabinet with TV, and so on. Do not forget the carpets: they will stumble, they can get dirty. Clear the space in the center, slide the furniture to the walls.
2. Watch the temperature
The more people, the less oxygen. Remember this.
If the heating system allows, reduce the batteries. Ideally, when there is air conditioning: you can set a comfortable temperature and reduce it if it suddenly becomes hot. No air conditioner? Properly ventilate the room before the arrival of guests and leave the window in micro-ventilation mode. Cooking treats in the oven , try to finish and turn off the oven about an hour before.
3. Allocate a place for your guests' belongings.
Hanger in the hallway is designed for five jackets, and guests will be twice as large? Do not know where to get two dozen slippers? Do not want everyone to stumble over ladies' bags? Then think about the placement of outerwear, shoes and other things invited in advance.
Jackets and bags are easier not to hang, and fold. For example, on the bed in the bedroom. If there is no carpet in the apartment and you have removed all the fleecy flooring, then invite guests to wipe their boots at the entrance and stay in outdoor shoes. The floor can be washed, but to place several dozen pairs of shoes in the hallway is a problem.
4. Try to use less utensils.
Usually we prepare a bowl of salad and arrange treats on plates. Think about how many dishes then have to wash, and give up the traditional approach.
Do portions snacks that can be eaten over a napkin without a plate: canapes, tartlets, sandwiches. For hot meals and drinks, you can use disposable dishes.Greenland Travel / Flickr.com
Make sure the sink and / or dishwasher are empty. Empty stained containers need to be put somewhere.
5. Buffet vs feast
We used to gather around the table. This is great when it comes to a family dinner or a small party celebration. But for a noisy party for 10 or more people is not the best solution.
Firstly, you need a large table so that everyone has enough “seats”. And if you put the table in the middle of the room, there will be no place for dancing and games. Secondly, in this case, rule number 4 will not work.
A buffet table is what you need for a party. You should not put all the treats and drinks on the same table. Otherwise there will be pandemonium - inconvenient and ugly. It is better to make several zones with food and drink: we place it on the windowsill cocktails , on the table in the corner - snacks, and on the shelf - fruit.
As you can see, you can make a big revel even in a modest odnushka. If you think of everything in advance.
