3 Ways To Prevent Spills And Stains At Your Party

With the holiday season well on the way, you may feel inclined to hold a party for your friends and loved ones. The problem is, when large groups of people come together, there’s a higher chance of stains and spills finding your beloved furniture and carpet. Luckily, there are numerous ways to prevent those mishaps before the party even begins. Make sure your home remains fresh and stain-free by taking a look at these three basic party guidelines.
Coasters, coasters, and more coasters

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how often it’s overlooked. More often than not, a home is only stocked with enough coasters for its inhabitants. By providing a lot of coasters at key places throughout your home, you’ll be well on your way to preventing one of the most common party stains. Odds are your holiday guests aren’t savages (at least we hope not). When they see a coaster nearby, they’ll most likely use it.
Paper Plates

Many times party hosts try to cut corners by giving their guests napkins instead of paper plates to carry their food with. Not only are they more difficult to eat off of, napkins are more likely to fall out of their hands and leave a stain on your new sectional. Plates can be much easier to manage when walking around and mingling with other guests. We also recommend favoring foods without excessive sauces or dark ingredients. This will help minimize stains if they do occur.
Stick To White Wine

Perhaps the biggest stain culprit during holiday parties is red wine. It may be a more dignified than other alcoholic beverages, but the stains they leave behind are perhaps some of the most unsightly accidents you can imagine. Not only is white wine less robust and more refreshing, it’s much easier to clean up if a mishap occurs. Also, you don’t want your guest experiencing immeasurable grief after ruining your new loveseat with red wine.

Holiday parties are fun, but we’re all aware of the possible mess they may cause. Along with the tips listed above, try to imagine possible accidents that may occur before your guests arrive. This will help you anticipate a party crashing stain. Although, stains aside, a holiday party is hardly worthwhile with the proper furnishings for your guest.
