Having your own living space is a wonderful thing. Whether you set a goal to buy a home at some point this year and you’re just settling into your new space or you just found the perfect apartment for rent here in Laramie, you might be thinking that with the holidays just around the corner, now would be a good time to hose a party. You’d be right!

The truth is that having people over to your living space can be intimidating. Is it big enough? Will there be enough food? If so, will your guests like it? Should you hang out in the living room or the dining room? These can be tricky questions to answer, but the good news is that the team at Laramie Property Management Group is here to help!

3 Tips for Hosting a Great Holiday Party

Make a List

First and foremost, get out a pen and paper and write a list. Sure, you could use the notes app on your smartphone, but our advice is to actually make a physical list and keep it pinned to your fridge. Every party is going to be a little bit different, but making a list is the perfect way to keep everything organized, checking things off as you go.

Keep the Menu Simple

“I should try to make duck l’orange,” you think to yourself. “It will impress the guests.” It most certainly would leave your guests impressed, but we think the key to a successful party is to cook what you know how to cook already. You have enough on your plate (pardon the pun) as it is, so pick something you know how to make well and make that. People will have a good time eating your food if it’s made from the heart and it frees you up to think about other things than what duck l’orange even is.

Think About the Vibe

What type of mood do you want your party to have? Some people will inevitably prefer laid back and low key whereas others would rather have something energetic and upbeat. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, our advice is to think about the vibe and figure out how to make it work. For example, if you prefer something a little more casual, turn the lights down low and put relaxing music on. For more exciting affairs, turn all the lights up and keep the soundtrack bumping.
