Your home garage can be a very versatile space. They are great options for hosting parties because you can keep the party indoors or open the garage door and extend the party outdoors. Let Neighborhood Garage Door Repair help you turn your garage into a party space.
Declutter and Empty Your Garage
Before throwing a party, you will want to clean out your garage to make plenty of room for your guests. This could mean temporarily removing items, or it could mean a major decluttering. Allow yourself a couple of days for this project.
This is a good opportunity to get rid of things you no longer need. You can donate unwanted items to local charities or give them to somebody you know in need. Another option is for you to have a garage sale.
Cleaning Your Garage
Over the years, your garage collects plenty of dust and dirt. Once you have completely emptied it, you need to thoroughly clean the garage. A deep cleaning will include the following steps:
- Dusting the walls and the ceilings, making sure to clear all cobwebs and spiderwebs
- Wiping down walls
- Cleaning the garage door
You will also want to make sure there are no bugs or rodents in your garage. Check for things like spiders, ants, wasps, and mice. If you are going to spray a pesticide or set any mouse traps, you will need to do this a few days before the party.
Some of the most fun things about a party are picking out the perfect decorations! Many parties and decorations are based on a theme, such as a birthday, a graduation, or a holiday, but they do not have to be. Some decoration ideas include:
- Table Cloths
- Plates, napkins, and plasticware
Placement of your decorations is important, so you want to be sure that you space everything out. When decorating, you will want to have a step-stool or ladder handy for the high-to-reach places. You can decorate the night before the party or the day of the party, but give yourself at least two hours to decorate before the party.
Deciding what food to serve at a party can sometimes be stressful, so you should plan this at least a week ahead of time. You should make your choices based on the party type, the time of the year, and the time of the party. If you do not want to serve food, or if you only want to serve snacks, host your party after lunch or after dinner.
Once you choose your main dish, decide if you need any condiments or side dishes. Be prepared to keep all food covered and at the appropriate serving temperature. Also, decide what drinks will be served and how they will be stored.
