The holidays also mean needing a space to host everybody. If you have a small space, this can be difficult, and may require some creativity on your part. For example, a coffee table can double as an eating area. Throw a nice tablecloth on there, and throw some comfy cushions on the floor. If you have kids at the party, they’ll absolutely love this setup!
I also recommend keeping the food on a side buffet or on a kitchen countertop. This allows you a clutter-free table with more room for dinnerware. It’s really easy for people to line up and dish out their food, and you don’t need to worry about passing all of the dishes around.
For your beautiful desserts, use tiered platters so they take up less space. It also provides a nice visual interest by varying the heights of the items on the countertop.
A simple way to create more seating in your living room is to use furniture pieces that can double as seating in a pinch. For example, this ottoman is great for putting your feet up, but also acts as a seat when needed.
