    The last thing you want is for guests to feel cramped together, or worse, run out of seats. Cushioned sofas, sectionals, and recliners offer both space and comfort in abundance. A pro tip is to minimize distance between guests to encourage a communal atmosphere and add on cushions, pillows, and blankets to lock in hours of coziness.
    No party is complete without delicious refreshments — so it’s time to make a game plan for where these snacks and drinks will be placed. Make sure every seat in the living room has a surface nearby, whether that’s a sofa with built-in armrests, a central coffee table, or accent tables. For bonus points, add a bar cart to make refills a breeze.
    The television is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of any viewing party. Consider adding a media console, entertainment unit, or a simpler TV stand to elevate the screen, frame it neatly, and ensure it is viewable from every seat. Plus, this multifunctional storage piece will be great for hiding away distracting cords, cables, and other clutter before guests arrive.
