Let’s begin with:
How To Plan A Warm Housewarming Party?
Throwing a nice housewarming party despite having so much to do after shifting can be a daunting task. So, first things first, you should decide on a date after discussing it with your spouse and family. Organise it on weekends so that your guests find it easy to attend. You can decide the timings according to your convenience and then make a list of the number of guests you want to invite. Choose the cuisine, beverages and desserts you want to serve at the party.
Don’t Forget The Essentials
It’s obvious that it will take you a few days to organise your new home. But before inviting your guest for a house warming party you should ensure that some basics things at your home are functioning properly. Amongst them make sure that the radiator in your new house is in working condition so, that your guests feel warm, comfortable and can enjoy the party. If you are looking to buy a new one installing a smart radiator that maintain the room temperature automatically would be a wise choice. LED lights and bulbs, water purifier, stove and oven should also work properly in order to avoid last minute hassles and cause any inconvenience to your guests.
What should Your Housewarming Party Theme Be?
Make your housewarming party a themed party. It is a good idea to ask your guest to help you in decorating your new house or unpacking your luggage. This brings a sense of excitement for the party. You can make it paint-a-room theme where you can ask your guest to coat some beautiful colours on the walls of your rooms and showcase their creativity. Another practical party theme is an unpacking party. Announce entertaining events like the one who opens the most number of cartons gets a surprise gift or the one who organises the closet well will get a bottle of champagne. Apart from that, other themes worth considering include garden themes, potluck, block party and more to bring more fun and laughter to your party.
What Are Housewarming Party Etiquettes?
A housewarming party is not a formal event. They tend to be on the casual side so don’t worry about dress codes, seating arrangements and food. Look to accommodate all the packed cartons in one room, clean your dining table so that you can keep the eatables there. Invite your guest with handmade invitation cards and give them a warm welcome. Attend to them gracefully and make them happy with your kindness.
Who You Should Invite?
The next thing you need to consider is who you should invite to your housewarming party. Discuss the guest list with your family or spouse. You don’t need to invite all your number of friends and colleagues. But the list must include your best friends, new friends, other close family members and your neighbours. It’s always good to share your good fortune only with those who are close to you. So you should be selective while deciding your guest list for the party.
Starting a new chapter of your life in your new home is a reason for you to celebrate. An enjoyable housewarming party is always a celebration of your new house and one of the ways to know your new neighbours. But at the end of the party, you should also be thankful to your guests. You can offer some small party favours or gifts as a token of your appreciation for their time and help making the event a roaring success.
