A Spa Party in a Studio Apartment?
YES YOU CAN … host a fabulously chic spa party in a small, cramped studio apartment. Trust me, I once hosted a bridal spa for five ladies in a 600 square foot efficiency. It was delightful!
5 easy steps to hosting a spectacular spa party in an efficiency!
1. Clear the party room of any unnecessary clutter.
Move any furniture or items you don’t intend to use during the party against the wall or in a closet.
2. Place pillows on the floor as additional seating.
After you’ve decluttered your party space, focus on arranging seating for your gal pals. Throw a couple of large pillows on the floor for additional seating -- also a perfect place for the ladies to polish their toe nails.
Don't forget the bed is comfortable enough for at least two people. Think Miami chic! As the ladies mingle throughout the evening, they can rotate between the bed, the floor and the couch!
3. Set up the spa paraphernalia near the couch and on the coffee table.
The much-needed spa treatments will take place in the space around your sofa and coffee table. Set up all of the spa accoutrements before the girls arrive.
4. Make the nightstand your bar.
No need for the drinks to take up a lot of space. Simply make the nightstand the bar. To help maximize your space, limit the alcohol to one signature drink. Place a pitcher of your signature cocktail and martini glasses on the nightstand and voila, you’re all set, Miss Newly Minted Bartender.
5. Serve the food in the kitchen.
Rather than crowd the party area, leave the food in the kitchen and let the girls help themselves buffet-style. Invite them to congregate in the kitchen or to bring their plates back to the party room.
And there you have it! Don’t let a small place keep you from unleashing the party diva in you. Are you holding back from hosting a party because you think your place is too small?

Me chiming in: I think Whimsi is right on track, don't let a small space keep you from having a faboulous get together! Think of how many people used to cram into a small college dorm room, no couches just beds. Hey if whole nightclubs are based on the idea of lounging/sipping while on a bed, YOU can do it too.
