There’s always a great excuse to celebrate something during summer. Whether it’s an official holiday or a nice day, having friends and family together for a party is a perfect way to create some fantastic summer memories. But while everyone’s down for a party, not everyone’s always ready to get their homes ready for guests. If you want to throw a great summer shindig, check out this party planning checklist and make sure you’ve got everything under control.
Since it’s summer, take advantage of the beautiful weather! While the fresh air and open space do wonders for the mood of a party, being outside also helps minimize the amount of traffic (and cleaning) you’ll have to do inside your house. When planning the ultimate summer party, make sure mother nature is cooperating.
When comes to cleaning for a party, it’s possible to work smarter, not harder. A cleaning plan can be helpful if you want to really boost the wow factor of your home. But really, the things you notice about your home and what your guests will notice can be very different. Regardless of a plan, make sure you cover these party basics for an effective quick clean.
Once the party’s over, be sure to save enough energy to do a bit of essential cleaning so that you won’t feel so overwhelmed the next day. Tackle these cleaning jobs for an easier time. Even better, recruit some help so that cleaning will be a breeze!
Don’t wait to load the dishwasher. Since most of the mess being made at a party will be glasses and kitchenware, don’t let this big task wait until morning—you might feel overwhelmed waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes
Check all the areas used by guests and clean up all tables and countertops. As your checking rooms and surfaces for stains, take out the trash and start straightening up your rooms.
This should be the quickest job. A quick dry mop or vacuum should be all you need to get your floors back to normal.
