Tip #1: Garbage Cans
Hosts sometimes express the need to hide garbage receptacles because they don't look very elegant...and they're right. BUT, here are a couple of things you should consider before providing a tiny garbage can for a party.
The mess looks far worse.
With trash in hand, a guest will look for a place to discard their disposable plate, beer, or plastic cup somewhere. Guests will look for about 5 seconds. If there's no obvious where to put trash, they will simply set it down on any flat surface. The result? Your venue or home ends up looking like last nights frat party. You could hire someone to bus tables, but the task doesn't typically warrant enough work to hire a person for this job.
Solution: Place a large garbage can in every area you expect the guests to congregate. Don't worry about what the guests are thinking. Guests will appreciate the obvious place to put their trash; instead of the embarrassmsent of leaving their dirty dishes on your piano. (Yes we have seen this).
