Maximize Your Space

Whether you live in a small apartment or house, there are always ways to maximize your space. For example, if you have an outdoor area, turn it into the main gathering spot for your party. You don't have to use your indoor space for anything unnecessary. Encourage guests to head outside by hanging lights in your backyard or patio, decorating with streamers and balloons, and setting up long tables underneath the stars.

You can set up tables and chairs around the perimeter of the area so that no one feels crowded while they're enjoying the festivities. Consider setting up your bar or drink station in an accessible location so everyone can request a drink as the mood hits them.

Rearrange Your Furniture

Depending on the size of your space, you may need to rearrange some of your furniture to accommodate everyone indoors. If you have a small couch, move it out of the way and place individual chairs in its place. If there are any extra pieces of furniture that you don't use, temporarily stow them away in another room so there is one large area for people to gather instead of several clusters of furniture to squeeze around.

Use Your Walls for Extra Seating

If you have some blank walls, use them for extra seating. Place stools or small seats against walls and let guests use the wall as back support. If you have a long hallway or narrow area, consider buying long benches and lining them up along the wall. The best part about using benches is that they create a lot of seating space without a cluttered feel. You can also stack pillows or use rolled-up quilts against the wall for added comfort.

Transform a Pool Into a Surface

If you have a pool in your backyard, installing a pool dance floor cover above it gives you more space to move around. Use this space for additional seating, a runway, or simply an additional space for your event. You can still leave some room in the pool open and get fantastic pool party pictures that show off the event with the perfect poolside Instagram captions](https://www.women.com/ashleyferraro/lists/pool-party-instagram-captions-021020).
