Townhome Party

Tips For Your Bellevue Townhome Party

Preparing for a Townhome Together/Party

So, you’ve got a get together or small party planned at your apartment. It could be for a birthday, a dinner party, a weekly TV showing, or what have you. As the host, it’s your duty to provide a safe and clean space for people to enjoy themselves, but sometimes it’s easy to forget to prepare properly.

Using these preparation tips and tricks, you’ll be hosting king or queen, anticipating some of the common party-snafu situations that can arise.

Prepare for Cleanup

Let’s face it; having guests over will get messy at some point. Accidents happen; it just helps to be prepared for when those moments do arise.

Garbage Options

Waking up the morning after a party (especially one you hosted) can be the worst; lack of sleep, a headache, and a mess strewn across your home’s countertops and tables. Although this isn’t a guide on how to prevent a hangover, the mess after hosting a get together doesn’t have to be extreme.

People typically don’t want to destroy your home, but finding a place to actually put the waste in the moment can be a struggle. Before having guests over, set up some garbage/recycling cans somewhere in the apartment that will actually have your guests cleaning for you.

Paper Towels and Multi-Purpose Cleaner

This may seem pretty rudimentary, but stocking up on cleaning supplies can be a life-saver. Spilled messes or even a drink’s cup ring on a wooden table can pile up and even become stains over time. Make sure to take care of those accidents sooner than later!

 Basic Snacks

For most get togethers, a main entrée usually isn’t necessary to provide (unless it’s something like a dinner party). However, a small snack like pretzels or chips can help keep your guests happy and satisfied.

Organizing Space

No matter the event you’re hosting, ensure that there’s adequate space available for your guests. Sometimes all it takes is removing a couple dining room chairs or adjusting the couch to a wider position to accommodate everyone.

The key here is not over-inviting; it can be a little awkward when there are more people fighting to sit on the couch to watch Game of Thrones than seats available.

Talk to Your Neighbors

One of the biggest issues with hosting a get together or an event in an apartment setting is noise complaints. This is easily remedied by just simply letting your neighbors know ahead of time and accommodating as necessary. As long as you’re respectful and follow the apartment complex’s rules, you’re in the clear.

As a follow-up, make sure to relay the info to your guests! Setting a respectful precedent will allow you to continue hosting events in the future.

Dealing with neighbors, minimal space and cleaning up messes are some of the responsibilities that are inherently put on a host’s shoulders. But proper preparation and planning your guests will leave happy and satisfied, with minimal inconvenience on your part.

4 Amazing Businesses in Factoria

Have friends or relatives visiting your Factoria neighborhood of Bellevue? It would be a shame for any of them to miss the four great shops below.

There is something for everyone in Factoria, from good food to fashion to recreation. It is impossible to include all of the reasons why Factoria is an amazing place to live, but these four perfect places may open your eyes to what makes this sector of Bellevue so stellar.

Suprema’s Deli

13555 SE 36th St, Bellevue, WA 98006

Great for breakfast all the way to dessert. Suprema’s is best known for their friendly and attentive owner – walking into the deli for the first time is like coming home from a business trip. When one of the staff asks how you are doing, they genuinely wish to know. Everyone has smiles on their faces making atmosphere familiar and welcoming.

It is absolutely crucial to try the ribs, which come with sauce but are better without. The rich flavor is a testament to the expertise of the chef and the deli’s commitment to providing a wonderful experience for all who walk in the door.

The Golf Club at Newcastle

15500 6 Penny Ln, Newcastle, WA 98059

For most, a trip to a luxurious golf course is not on the docket for every weekend, but if there is a single golfer’s bone in your body, the Newcastle golf club is a place you must visit at least once. For dinner, there is a choice of three exquisite restaurants. For scotch lovers, there is the Wooly Toad. Try Turnberry’s for the perfect bite on the move, and Calcutta Grill is the destination of choice for settling in after a day of golf. By the way, the water sparkles beneath the rolling hills – this is a truly majestic place to spend the day.


3720 Factoria Blvd SE, Bellevue, WA 98006

Here is one unforgettable place for the sushi fans out there.. Musashi’s is proud to serve only the finest cuts of nigiri – we swear  the fish is so fresh it makes angels cry. The difference in quality is easy to see, as the sushi served in most places is duller in color and significantly more bland in taste.

If raw sushi is not your thing, there are rice dishes and soups to enjoy, too. There may not be anything surprising about these alternative items, but they are scrumptious in their own right. For the true sushi lover, however, there is no way to go wrong.

Simply Chic Boutique

Marketplace at Factoria, 3937 Factoria Blvd SE, Bellevue, WA 98006

For a little window shopping, and maybe a tiny bit of real shopping, it is hard to beat Simply Chic. While sporting the prices that you may see at Target, the clothing selected for this boutique is fashionable and unique in a way that generic department store clothes can never be. Browsing through the most carefully selected item brings a certain joy, although it is even more fun to purchase and bring their unique home. Bonus: The boutique is within walking distance of The Row Townhomes.
