It’s that time of year again; time to host a fabulous holiday party in your luxury apartment! While food, friends, and fun are among the most important details for such an event, it’s equally important not to forget this final one: your neighbors. Living in an apartment community means being conscious of your neighbors’ needs as well as your own, and if you are planning a holiday party, there are a few basic rules of etiquette you should try to follow to keep everyone happy. Read on to find out more!
Give Your Neighbors Advance Notice About Holiday Parties
If you are going to be inviting over a fairly large group of people, then this might prove to be a disruption to neighbors. The last thing you want is to spring that distracting surprise on them at the last minute! Go to them a few days in advance and let them know when the part will be, what time you expect it to be over, and how many people will be attending. If you are close with your neighbors, invite them to come as well and bypass any of the anxiety of bothering them on the night of the party! If your neighbors know about the party beforehand, they can either plan to be out or simply to be aware; the fact that you were nice enough to let them know will probably make them very understanding.
Minimizing the Noise Levels at Your Holiday Party
To show your concern for your neighbors, consider a few tricks to keep the noise down at your party. Put throw rugs down on uncarpeted areas, for starters. This will muffle the noise of footsteps for the neighbors directly below you if you are not on the ground floor. Also, test out the volume level of your stereo or speaker system. Turn it to different levels and see how it sounds when you are outside of the apartment with the door shut. A faint hum might be acceptable, but blaring music is definitely not!
Have a happy holiday season and be mindful of your neighbors when you throw a party this year at your Harford County apartment!
