Tips for Throwing a Housewarming Party
Friday, April 1, 2016
One of the most exciting aspects of moving into a new home is showing off your hard work and eye for interior décor to friends and family, as well as meeting the new neighbors. The perfect housewarming party is a fun and exciting way to welcome everyone to your new beginning!
Throwing a memorable party is simple if you make it your own and create an atmosphere that is uniquely you. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Start with quaint and creative invitations – there are a ton of online tools that help you design and distribute your party invitations.
Create a menu – determine whether you will be providing appetizers or a full course meal, this will most likely depend on the number of guests at your party. Look through family cookbooks and make something that is unique to you. If you need some inspiration, check out Southernliving.com’s Ultimate Party Cookbook.
Put together the bar – nothing gets a party going like a diverse selection of wine, spirits, beer and soda. Keep it classy and hire a bartender or set up a well-organized self-service station.
Stay practical and don’t overdue the decorations – your guests are looking forward to seeing your new home, so don’t go overboard on party decorations. The point of a housewarming party is to show off your personal style.
Designate an area for your pets, and for children – keep pets in a safe and secure place, large groups of people can be confusing and stressful for our furry friends. Additionally, designate a play area for children so that the adults can enjoy themselves and not have to babysit all night.
Time for the big reveal – here is the moment you’ve been waiting for, it’s time to tour your new home! Offering tours to small groups ensures your guests can walk in and out of every room comfortably so they get the full experience.
Nothing kicks off your new life like a good party. Hopefully these tips will help you create the perfect event to show off the new digs. And when it’s over, you get to start thinking about all the new memories you are going to create in your new home.
