Make use of what you have. Place drinks, appetizers, food dishes and décor wherever possible (such as side tables, consoles and chests). This will allow your guests to mingle and wander and not be cluttered in one area.

Put your mind at ease and consider hosting a potluck style gathering! It’s easy – just ask your guests to bring a dish that you can put on display. This also creates a laid-back atmosphere and provides guests with a variety of food options to choose from. Great for mingling, and you don’t have to worry about preparing a large sit-down meal.



Voila! You are ready to host your own holiday dinner party in the luxury of your CLV Group apartment!

Please value your neighbours rights by keeping noise at a suitable level for mutual enjoyment of the building!
