6 TIPS FOR A NEW MOVER’S HOUSEWARMING PARTY
Americans move a lot. Annually, about 14% of the population relocates to a new home(that’s 40 million people!).
Are you one of those 40 million? Are you settled into your new house?
If you’ve already moved in and would like to celebrate your relocation, a great way of doing so is by hosting a housewarming party.
Don’t have guests over for parties that much? Are you trying to keep it low key?
We put together six tips for throwing a housewarming party.
1. DON’T THROW A PARTY RIGHT AWAY
You don’t want to have tons of people over before you get settled.
Give yourself some time before to really move in before you decide to celebrate. A great housewarming party can be thrown a month and a half after you move in.
2. THE INVITATIONS
You certainly don’t have to mail out invitations to your party.
Email invites will work great, especially for a casual housewarming party. Plus, this makes it easier to keep track of RSVPs and you don’t need to pay to send them out via snail mail.
3. AN OPEN HOUSE IS A GREAT OPTION
One of the best ways to keep it stress-free is by holding an open house party. Give your guests a three house window to drop by.
This will save your party from getting overcrowded any once and you’ll have more opportunities to socialize with your guests if they’re not all showing up at the same time.
4. DON’T FORGET TO INVITE YOUR NEIGHBORS
While organizing a guest list, make sure to include your new neighbors. It’s a good chance to get to know everyone around you. They will surely appreciate the invite.
5. DECOR IS UNNECESSARY
Spending a ton of time and money on decorations isn’t necessary.
Don’t forget, that the whole point of a housewarming party is to show your friends and neighbors how you’ve decorated your new house.
Extra decorations will just hide what you’ve done with the place.
All you need to do is make your house nice and presentable.
6. YOU DON’T NEED A TON OF FOOD
Don’t go overboard with your food options. Your guests won’t expect a fine dining experience.
A good alternative is fun appetizers that guests can help themselves to.
Let your friends help if they want to bring drinks or food to serve. Your friends will enjoy helping and it’s a great way to remove some of the weight off your back.
READY FOR YOUR HOUSEWARMING PARTY
Throwing a housewarming party doesn’t have to be overwhelming or complicated.
If you keep it simple, both you and your guests will enjoy themselves more.
