How to Host Christmas Get-together in Your Small Condo Space

Share via:

Do you think your small condo unit isn’t perfect for hosting a successful party? Well, think again!

This holiday season, don’t let the size of your condo space keep you from celebrating Christmas with family and friends. Turn your Vista Residences studio-type condo into a room beyond small-space décor and tiny kitchen recipes with these simple tips!

Plan ahead of time

Make your Christmas celebration memorable this year by planning ahead of time. As early as now, write down your to-do list and make a sound plan – from the menu, drinks to serve, to the interior décor and setup.

Consider your cooking space in the condo and think of dishes that are easy to prepare. You can also request for a pot luck but carefully plan out which specific food your guests could bring so as not to overwhelm the get-together.

Time to rearrange

Rearranging your stuff and furniture can significantly change how your condo unit would look.

It’s time to check your space and look at the things that need to be shuffled around to accommodate your guests in your small condo space. A good way to go about this is by starting with the movable accessories. You can also sort this out by a particular characteristic and reposition them creatively in an entirely different manner.

Decluttering and rearranging your stuff is the best way to prepare your living space for your upcoming Christmas party!

Plan for alternative seating

Chances are, you don’t have enough seats to accommodate your guests in the condo. But fret not, there are many ways to get creative with alternative seats!

You can also make use of your storage benches and ottomans which can help you store some of your stuff and at the same time function as extra seats. Storage benches and ottomans are easily movable and designed to complement a variety of styles and will be the hardest working pieces of furniture in your compact condo space.

You may also want to bring out your oversized rug or carpet and get everyone to sit on the floor with various pillows. Check out style inspirations from Pinterest to make your small space party-ready!

Keep the décor simple

We know how excited you are in dressing up your place for the holidays but instead of putting up so many décor that may overwhelm your condo space, try keeping it to a minimum to make your space look neat and under control with a minimalist theme.

Hanging up a statement piece or putting up a couple of decorative elements in matching tones will add some festive cheer without visual clutter.

Use flexible accessories

Maximizing your space is a must especially if you are planning for a get-together. Use your condo space efficiently with multi-purpose and space-saving furniture and accessories but remember not to sacrifice on style!

If you have a tray table floor lamp, you can use its added perch to rest drinks or display a bouquet of flowers. Meanwhile, you may also want to use your coffee table which can serve as an appetizer station and at the same storage for your small décor and books. 

Clean-as-you-go

Your Christmas get-together will surely be fun but might also be a little messy so inform your guests ahead of time about the clean-as-you-go rule so they would be responsible in keeping your condo unit clean aside from bringing in the fun.

Prepping up your condo for the holidays isn’t hard at all. All you need to do is to prepare your condo ahead of time and carefully plan out the things that you will be needing.

Think about this, it’s high time to spread positivity and be thankful for having been able to surpass all the trials we’ve gone through this year. So go ahead, plan out for Christmas and make the most out of it!
