Step Into Our Party

We were thrilled last weekend when asked to help de-clutter for a party.  Our customer thought he had time to prepare for twenty something guests – but he didn’t!

It happens! And we were more than happy to help (and happy to stick around afterwards for some fun – we owe you some vodka and a box of crackers Brian).

Quick easy wins are key when strapped for time. Here are some tips to make a messy place sit-able, stand-able and, by the end of the night, crawl-able.  

 

Consolidate loose papers (mail, coupons, flyers, business cards etc…).  Put them in a basket and then put them in a cupboard. Think Zen for a party.   

 

Do the dishes.  Do them quickly and get ‘em off the countertop.  

 

Wipe down the coffee table or communal table – remove art pieces, books and clutter to make room for drinks and snacks.

Won't hold potato chips!

Take out the garbage and recycling.

Do a quick vacuum or sweep. Five minutes, that’s it.

Lower the lights – plug in a lamp or light a candle.  Instant ambiance.

 

Cheat-clean the bathroom!

Take a towel or fiber cloth (piece of toilet paper works too) and simply polish the faucets.  No scrubbing necessary – this trick takes two seconds! The fixtures will shine! Do the same for the visible parts of the toilet (behind the seat and on top of the tank lid and toilet seat). 

 

A party‘s success is measured by how long the line to the bathroom is.

If you have time to spare, remove personal items from the front closet to hang up coats. No time? No worries. Your toilet sparkles.
