Memorial Day is the official kick-off to summer, so you might be thinking about throwing your own party to celebrate this awesome time of the year. Even if you don’t have access to a grill or a spacious backyard at an apartment for rent near North Brunswick, there are still many ways to get creative and ensure your guests are entertained and are just as ready as you are to ditch the jackets and put on your shades. Forget about the space and focus on the fun!

  1. Keep the air flowing

As long as it’s not too hot yet and the weather doesn’t yet require air conditioning, keep your windows and doors open to bring in the fresh air. After all, this IS the ultimate celebration to ring in the summer, so keep the air flowing! Plus, if you have a decent number of people in your apartment, you’ll want to make sure you do this to prevent your space getting too warm or musty.

  1. Have everything ready

Since space is precious in your unit, you’ll want to make sure that you aren’t still preparing while guests are arriving. This will also ensure that you’ll be able to mingle with everyone without the pressure of maintaining food and drink demand, and it will provide more space for your guests to mingle and socialize. Also, spread your serving bowls and plates throughout your apartment so guests are encouraged to circulate instead of congregating in the kitchen and dining areas.

  1. Think summertime vibes

Nothing says summer more than Jimmy Buffett or Bob Marley. Create a summer playlist to get your guests feeling relaxed and calm and ready for the warmer temperatures. Serve summery cocktails, like margaritas and Mai Tais. Put out fresh watermelon and cocktail wieners. Decorate your apartment near North Brunswick with lots of red, white, and blue, or if you’re feeling a bit more creative, encourage everyone to come in their best summer costume, complete with arm floaties, sunblocked noses, and tacky summer hats. Your guests will surely get a kick out of it and will be ready to kick-off summer the right way!
