Maximize your small space for a big party with these 10 tips.

When you graduate college, get your first job, and move to a big city, chances are that your first place is going to be tiny. You’re probably going to be pretty broke, too, leading to a lot of nights of hanging out at home with friends. And if you want to throw a big party — whether for your pet’s birthday, a major holiday, or any old random occasion — you may find yourself wondering if it’s even possible to have all of your friends over in your tiny studio.

Living in a small space doesn’t have to limit your opportunities for entertaining — all you have to do is be a little creative. In order to jam 40 people into your tiny city apartment, of course you need to move your furniture out of the way and clear off your kitchen counters (or single counter, if your home is anything like mine). But there are small details that maybe you hadn’t thought of. For instance, how do you plan a menu, set out your drinks, and decorate your home when every inch of your tables and counters are accounted for?


So if you’re looking to throw a massive bash in a tiny home, know that it’s possible. You just have to be smart about it.
