If you love to host parties—but are cramping your personal space with party décor and furniture—then it’s time to meet your new party planning best friend: self-storage. While Ina Garten helps you with your cooking skills, a self-storage unit can help you keep your party supplies safe, in great condition and out of your way. But what are the ideal items to store in a unit? Here are three tips from the experts at Secure Self Storage on how you should use a self-storage for your future parties—so you can continue to be the hostess with the mostest.
- Party décor. Throwing a party calls for special decorations—even if there’s technically no “special” occasion (i.e. Halloween or Christmas). To ensure your parties standout from others, incorporate unique touches like twinkle lights, candles, chic serving platters and table linens such as tablecloth, napkins and placemats.
- Additional furniture. Whether you’re having an indoor dinner party or an outdoor BBQ, you may want extra chairs and tables. To be prepared for anything, store a stack of foldable chairs, as well as two to four foldable tables. This way, you’ll have plenty of seating to offer, you’ll have the option to stylishly display your party snacks and foods, and you’ll be ready to play some fun, festive table games.
- Special appliances. If cooking is your favorite part of having people over, then you may have certain appliances that you only whip out for parties. Store any large, seldom-used appliances such a sous vide machine, pizza stone, pressure cooker or ice cream machine in a unit; this will keep your kitchen nice and tidy on the days when you’re not getting your Martha Stewart on. Just be sure to choose a facility that offers convenient hours, so you can grab your appliances for any last-minute party plans.
