Casa Quickie: Rearrange For Holiday Parties

This weekend, my husband and I are throwing our annual Christmas party, which means that about 70 people will be in and out of our house. Since the party focuses on a flaming bowl of punch and lots of yummy food, we decided to rearrange the dining room and living room for the party for best traffic flow. Our dining room is about half the size of our living room, so it made sense to move the table into the larger room.

Here's how we had the table set up last year. It's in its normal spot in the dining room, but as you can see, there's not much room to move. There was definite traffic congestion!

This year, I moved most of our living room furniture into the dining room. There's so much more room for the table in the living room, and I have high hopes for eliminating the congestion we experienced at last year's party!


Have you ever rearranged rooms like this for a party?
