Tips to Host the Perfect Housewarming Party
Post by : favouritehomes
Once you have finished with moving-in and putting away your unpacked boxes, the next agenda is usually to throw a housewarming party. After all, you want to show off your new home in which you have invested so much time and effort.
Moving into your new home costs a neat sum and you might not be feeling so flush with money, but you can still throw a great housewarming party and have a good time. Here are some tips on hosting the perfect housewarming party:
Budget – First, get the budget and see how much you can spend on your party. It’s possible to have a great party on a smaller budget too as everyone understands buying a new house and moving-in are expensive affairs.
Date – Don’t feel obliged to throw a party within the first few days of moving in. It is ok to take your time settling down in your dream home first. When you are all set, you can now focus on fixing a date for your housewarming party. Timing for your party will depend on your budget – whether you want a snack party or a more elaborate lunch/dinner party.
Guest List – Make a guest list depending on how many people your home can comfortably accommodate. Aside from new neighbours, you can invite your close friends, colleagues and family members.
Decorations – Your home is the star of the party and you could decorate it up. If it’s an evening party, think of string fairy lights; a daytime party could include lots of fresh flowers, colourful strings and balloons.
Ambience – Setting the mood for the party is important. Think in terms of a good nonstop playlist of songs, the aroma of fragrant candles and appropriate lighting effects.
Fun and Games – If the guest list isn’t too long, you can perk up the fun factor in your party by including some games too – anything would do – Bingo, treasure hunt, etc.
Kitchenware – While you might want to show-off your Chinaware, it’s more practical to go for disposable paper plates and glasses. This way, you won’t be left with a ton of dirty dishes after the party!
Hope these tips will be helpful in planning your housewarming party!
