Whether you live in an apartment or a house, throwing a get together for friends and family is always a good time. However, when you are in an apartment, there are normally close quarters and it’s important to be considerate of your neighbors. You can still host a fun party in your apartment while still respecting those living around you.
Here are some etiquette tips and tricks for when you are throwing your next apartment party.
One way to take some preventative measures before even having your party would be to get in touch with some of the neighbors that are psychically closest to your apartment. This is a great way to give them a heads up that you are planning on having a party at your place so that they aren’t taken off guard.
This is also a great time to let them know that you are doing everything you can to make sure things don’t get out of hand.
Have Your Apartment Party Early
Many problems arise when having a party in an apartment late at night because neighbors could be trying to go to sleep. This could be an even bigger problem if you have neighbors with small children. Don’t worry, you can still host a fun party earlier in the evening!
Limit the Alcohol
With increased alcohol intake comes increased volume and noise. To make sure that your guests are as behaved as you want them to be, limiting the alcohol will help solve these potential problems. This way you won’t have to worry about getting any noise complaints or causing trouble with your management.
Instead, try to make sure your guests are occupied with other activities and games.
Make sure you have enough food and water if you do still plan on drinking, that way your guests don’t get as drunk as they would without filling their stomachs.
Keep the Guest List Down
Losing control of your party is not a good thing. Keeping the guest list for your party low is an easy way to make sure that you have better control of those who are partying in your apartment. The fewer people who are invited, the more each of those guests are more likely to be responsible for their actions and be more respectful of the space.
Not to mention the fewer people who are there equals more space for each guest! This will have everyone comfortable and not cramped. Fewer guests also mean that the party-goers will not be forced to take the celebration out of your space and possibly annoy any neighbors.
Turn Down the Music
Be respectful to your neighbors and make sure the music isn’t so loud that it will bother them. If the music is low your guests won’t feel the need to yell to talk to each other over the volume of the music.
This is an easy way to have control over your apartment party.
These tips will make sure the small setting doesn’t stop you from having fun during your apartment party. This party etiquette from you and your guests will guarantee a good time without annoying the neighbors!
