6 Cool Tips for Your Garage Dinner Party

The holidays are coming! Are you planning a dinner party? Do you have enough room? The garage is an excellent space to have a large dinner party with relatives, friends and loved ones. These tips will help with your preparations.

1. Use screens to create a neutral space.

Garages tend to be utilitarian spaces. Even when they’re well-cleaned and organized, they’re not always very attractive. Put up screens to create a neutral space where your relatives, friends and loved ones can relax. If you don’t have screens, hang attractive sheets or curtains to hide your yard tools and other items.

2. Open the door to let nature in.

One of the best things about the garage is the giant door that lets in fresh air. Unless the weather is bad or the temperature is cold, plan to open your garage door throughout the dinner.

Don’t use your garage door much? Test the door several weeks before the dinner party. If the door won’t open, replace batteries in your opener. If the problems persist, it’s time for a tune-up. Work with your garage door contractor to ensure your door is working smoothly.

3. Make a formal dining table with a table cloth, candles and flowers.

Plan to use a table cloth, candles and flowers. This will dress up your dining table, making your meal seem formal and fancy. Flammable chemicals are common in the garage. To be on the safe side, use battery-powered candles.

4. Install string lights for charming ambiance.

Create a warm glow by draping string lights over the table. For a festive, carnival-like atmosphere, install globe string lights. If you’re on a budget, white holiday lights are inexpensive and easy to find. Buy these materials well in advance to ensure you have enough to cover the space. Be careful to avoid stringing lights in the way of your garage door.

5. Decorate the space further with scarves and flowers.

Add splashes of color to the walls by draping scarves around the string lights, or by pinning them to the curtains. Hang garlands of artificial flowers around the walls to make the space more colorful and festive.

6. Play soothing music.

Place a portable speaker, CD player or stereo behind the curtains and screens. Play low, soothing music during your party to create an environment similar to a fancy restaurant.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
