BEDROOM | 
Personally, I always think of the bedroom as my private space, and I'm not real keen on the idea of hordes of people milling in and out of it during the course of a party. If you, like me, donít want guests making use of your bedroom, make sure to keep the doors closed. Leaving the room in a bit of disarray will help to discourage inquisitive folks as well -- I'm talking un-made bed and some clean clothing tossed casually on top, not a mountain range of dirty socks and underwear strewn across the floor (that, of course, is just plain gross). 

On the other hand if you've got a tiny apartment, or if you just want to provide people with a slightly more intimate area of the party in which they can duck away for some quiet conversation, there's no reason you have to let the bedroom space go to waste. Scatter a few side tables (preferably not just one -- you don't want it to look too intimidatingly intimate), along with a bowl or two of munchies, light some candles, and leave the door open. The bedroom, of course, also makes a mighty fine coatroom.
