Summer – a time for blazing hot weather, longer days, and maybe even a summer party. But, hosting a party in your One 51 Place apartment is often more difficult than it might seem. You have to organize food and entertainment, keep your guests comfortable, and be conscious of your noise level once the party begins. So, is hosting a summer gathering at your apartment actually worth it? The answer is yes – if you follow a few tips for success.
Whether you’re hosting a party for the first time or you’re trying to outdo yourself from the last party you threw, here are a few tips you can follow to help ensure your summer gathering is a success:
- Keep it small – When you need to keep the noise to a reasonable level, throwing a party that’s on the smaller side is the way to go. This also makes virtually every other aspect of the planning, such as food preparation and seating, much easier.
- Prepare the food ahead of time – When the party begins, you don’t want to still be cooking, but rather enjoying your company. Try to serve foods that can be prepared and easily kept ahead of time so that you don’t spend your entire party in the kitchen.
- Turn down the AC – When you have several people chatting in one room, the temperature can rise quickly. Turn your AC down a few degrees before your guests arrive and keep an eye on the thermostat throughout the party to ensure you’re keeping your guests comfortable.
