You shouldn’t let your small Indianapolis apartment keep you from entertaining. Check out these tips for optimizing area and keeping things simple but pleasant for all.

  • Keep The RSVP List Within Reason: Unless you have a really roomy apartment, it’s wise to keep your parties small. Only host as many friends as you have seats at your dining table or within the living room. You may exceed this amount a little by shifting furniture around and bringing in additional seating with lawn chairs. But try not to pack so many guests in that you spill out into the property’s common areas, annoying your neighbors.
  • Open Windows To Stop Your Apartment From Getting Too Muggy: Too many guests in a small area is likely to make things a bit stifling, so crack a few windows. In addition, place some seating and ornamental hanging lights within your outdoor space and encourage guests to get some fresh air too.
  • Choose Space-Appropriate Activities: Elaborate party ideas that work well in larger rooms might not be as successful in a smaller setting, so try cards or a board game at the dining table. Or, instead of a dance party, have a cozy movie night.
  • Ask About The Clubhouse: If you require more square footage, you may also get in touch with| the office staff about using amenities including indoor common areas. Make sure to find out about specific rules or codes of conduct first.

How To Keep The Neighbors Happy When Hosting A Soiree

When apartment neighbors discover there’s a party nearby, a great number are less than excited. No one wishes to have their quiet night at home interrupted by another Resident’s friends. So stay on good terms with your neighbors with these recommendations.

  • Advise Visitors About The Best Places To Park: Many Indianapolis apartments have parking restrictions. Be sure your visitors have a good idea where they can park. They would hate to get towed, and your building’s other occupants don’t want to come home to see all the Resident spots full.
  • Monitor Your Noise Level: Since you share walls with other Residents, you owe them the decency of keeping noise to a minimum. Keep the volume of your stereo or TV down when you have party and remind guests that other building occupants may be disturbed. It’s also smart to avoid louder forms of entertainment, like video games or dancing.
  • Close Things Down At A Reasonable Hour: Your fellow Residents can put up with a bit of extra noise to an extent. But when the majority of folks are going to bed at the end of the day, it’s wise for you to end the festivities. There isn’t much that is more inconsiderate than interrupting others’ sleep. So end your gatherings with quiet time under consideration to avoid irate neighbors or complaints about the noise.
