Readying Your Home For A Big Party

Warmer weather means it’s time to celebrate! While hosting a party can be fun and rewarding, it can also feel like more work and stress than it’s worth. A big problem with preparing your home for a party is all the clutter. Where do your everyday objects go? Here are some tips and tricks to get your home looking its best before a big party!

Readying Your Home For A Big Party

  • Declutter and organize.

    While you may be tempted to shove everything into a closet and deal with it later, don’t! Storing items you want out of sight during the party in boxes and labelling everything clearly makes for less of a headache after the party. Whether you’re storing things in a specific room, a closet, the attic or a storage unit, make sure everything is organized, labelled and stored tidily. You’ll thank yourself for it later!

  • Start early.

    Of course you want your home looking spick and span before having company over. Start cleaning early to ensure it doesn’t become stressful at the last-minute. You may want to consider hiring a professional cleaning service if you don’t think you’ll have time to clean before the party.

  • Keep it simple.

    You may have grand ideas for how you want your home to look, but they’re not always practical. Instead, make a decorating plan that is simple, while still making your place look great. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way to brightening up a room. Rearranging furniture or putting some away into storage can also make a big difference.

  • Choose a theme.

    Whether you want to keep it simple and elegant or fun and over the top, choose a design theme in order to help yourself organize and decide on things like decorations, colour schemes and menus.

  • Rent, rent, rent.

    There are many companies that rent out furniture (such as long tables), dishes and cutlery specifically for events. Take a lot of stress out of post-party clean-up by renting dishes. (Usually you can return them dirty.)

  • Who’s coming?

    Take into account accessibility issues. Make sure you prepare your home so that everyone feels comfortable and welcome.

  • Use a storage unit.
    It is possible to rent short-term storage units where you can store any furniture or other household items you want out of the way. It’s the best way to keep things out of sight, and—with a secure unit—out of mind!

Hosting a big party always means a lot of work! But hopefully with these tips, you can take some of the stress out of party preparation and clean-up and just enjoy your big night!
