Commit to throwing a dinner party and the rest will fall together.

  1. Rearrange Your Furniture

Don’t be afraid to rearrange your furniture. By simply swapping staple pieces from your living room and kitchen, like chairs and tables, you can easily create additional space and have your dinner party in the living room with more room! You can even place your kitchen table in front of your couch!

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your furniture from different rooms to accommodate your event!

  1. Lighting

Create some mood lighting. Using alternative light sources will create a whimsical and memorable element to your gathering! Consider using small holiday lights as explained in our holiday décor post last week here.

  1. Utilize Every Surface

Make use of what you have. Place drinks, appetizers, food dishes and décor wherever possible (such as side tables, consoles and chests). This will allow your guests to mingle and wander and not be cluttered in one area.

Use the surfaces you have to create displays and declutter the kitchen area.

  1. Serve Potluck or Buffet Style

Put your mind at ease and consider hosting a potluck style gathering! It’s easy! Just ask your guests to bring a dish that you can put on display. Guests can then grab food as they wish and you will not have to worry about preparing a large sit-down meal.

A potluck style dinner will create a laid-back atmosphere and an array of different foods!

Voila! You are ready to host your own holiday dinner party in the luxury of your apartment! Be sure to send your photos to social@clvgroup.com so we can see how your party turned out!

Remember that the holidays can be a stressful time for all, however the ultimate goal is to spend time with loved ones and create memories! Please remember to respect your neighbours and understand that although you may be having a fun get-together, they may be trying to relax. Please value your neighbours rights by keeping noise at a suitable level for mutual enjoyment of the building!

Are you new to the building, have a new neighbour or want to spread holiday cheer? Extend your get-together invitation to your neighbours and create a memorable holiday season together!

Happy Holidays from all of us at CLV Group!
