Hosting Your Friends this Summer and During a Heatwave


Just like snow and rain, heatwaves can lead people indoors. The reason people do this is so they don’t suffer the effects of being outside. However, you can do lots in your Orion apartment when it’s too hot out. The easiest way to stay indoors is to invite some friends and family to do activities inside.

How to Make the Most Indoors this Summer

If you’ve been scratching your head on how to provide indoor entertainment for your friends, you are not alone. Here are some apartment-friendly tips you can use:

Organize your apartment

Sometimes it’s fun to clean with friends. The more people you have to help you reorganize, the better. After you’re done reorganizing, you can all sit down and have a refreshing cool drink!

Host a video game competition

Are you and your friends competitive? If so, why not do some indoor games such as racing games, fighting games, or shooting games? Whoever wins gets a drink or a goodie. It can be entertaining to do inside.

Hosting Family & Friends During the Heatwave

Stock up on everything

This is obvious, but the worst thing at a gathering is not having everything. So you’ll need to stock up on food, snacks, drinks, and anything else you may need. If you are stuck on what to make for your guests, check out these summer recipes to try out.

Make sure the apartment is cool

The whole point of staying inside is to be refreshed. It can be very uncomfortable if it’s just as hot as outside. Ensure the AC is turned on an hour before guests arrive. Ensure suitable curtains are used. Make sure the fans are flowing the correct way.
