We all love a party, but what we don’t love… is cleaning up after it’s over. Cleaning up could take even longer than the time spent enjoying the party.
We’ve prepared some tips to help you ensure you’re not spending the whole next day cleaning up after your fun party.
Consider the Menu
Picking messy foods could lead to… well… a mess. Keep things simple and clean to avoid any big spills!
Strategically Place Trash Cans and Recycling Bins
Keep a few extra trash cans around where the bulk of the party is taking place. Your guests will be more likely to throw out their paper plates or drink cans if they’re close. Otherwise, you’ll be dealing with piles of these items on tables instead.
All you need to do to clean table surfaces is uncover the table and either throw the tablecloth in the washer or the trash if it’s disposable.
Make Sure Your Dishwasher is Empty Beforehand
Cleaning up dishes will be quicker if you don’t have to deal with items already in the dishwasher.
Go Easy on the Decorations
We love feeling festive, but sometimes that could lead to going overboard. The more decorating you do, the more you need to clean up later.
Will you have a few kiddos joining the festivities? Stay away from messy arts and crafts project and focus more on games that are easy to clean up.
Designate a Coat Room
Having all of your guests put their coats and any other personal belongings in one place will be a huge help to ensure nothing is forgotten by your guests. Otherwise, you might spend the next day picking up all of the items left behind.
You’re bound to have a few friends or family members who will offer to help stay and clean up. Take them up on it! If they offered, there is no reason to feel like you’re being a burden.
