Making the ordinary extraordinary is the perfect way to think about your home. Styling your home for your party might seem daunting at first so here are some tips to help you put your best foot forward.

1 | DE-CLUTTER

Tidy up the areas you will use for the party including the entrance to your home and the bathroom guests will use. Remove any clutter, magazines and mail. Open up table surfaces so your guests will have a place to set drinks and plates.

2 | LOCATION

Take a look at the room you want to use for your party. You may consider using a room that is normally not your party location. I like to transform the lower level into a party location. For one of my parties I rearranged the furniture and rented a farmhouse table for the party food, creating a cozier feeling for my guests. www.your-perfect-party.com

3 | SET YOUR BAR

Find a unique setting for the bar area. Whenever you can add the unexpected, I say do it! It’s easy! Just take a look around your house to find a foyer table, dresser, bureau or the like, that is easy enough to move into your party area. While I have a built-in bar in my home, I still like to highlight a specialty and virgin cocktail in a unique fashion. www.your-perfect-party.com

4 | DRESS UP YOUR FOYER

I like to incorporate the party theme into my foyer decor. Including items that tie in with the theme will be noted by your most observant guests. You know who they are! They put a smile on your face just because they notice. www.your-perfect-party.com

5 | EXTEND YOUR THEME INTO THE BATHROOM

Lastly, remember to pay special attention to the bathroom. Lighting a scented candle and including some special soap to complement your theme is always pleasing to your guests. www.your-perfect-party.com

The main thing you should always consider when styling your home for a party is how it makes you feel. Because when you feel good you glow from the inside out. Your guests will be delighted to be in your presence and your party will be a huge success!
