You’ve moved into your new home and can’t wait to show it off to all of your friends and family. What better way than to throw a house warming party? The idea may seem daunting at first, especially if you’ve just gone through the stress of moving. However, with a little bit of planning it shouldn’t be all that difficult to have a wonderful party to celebrate your new home.
Create Your Guest List
Not sure of who to invite to your house warming party? This is your chance to bring together new friends and old so don’t stop at close friends and family. Friends of friends should be invited as well as new neighbors. The event should be casual and a means to network and build new relationships. The more the merrier as they say!
Pick a House Warming Theme
While it can remain a casual event, having a theme is always adding a bit of excitement. If you aren’t sure of what kind of theme to go with, the Internet is full of ideas. Some ideas of themes even involve having your guests help you design your new home and make it your own.
While you want your housewarming party to remain a casual event, you don’t want to skimp on the details. While you don’t necessarily need to send out a formal invitation, you will want to be very specific about your address and what your guests can expect in terms of dinner and time commitment. Additionally, if you truly don’t want a house warming gift, specify that in the invitation and offer an alternative instead. Alternatively, most guests do not want to arrive empty handed so if there are items you need, don’t feel bashful in asking.
Hopefully with these tips in mind, you can begin to think about planning a house warming party for your friends and family. It should not be a stressful event so think about what would truly make you the most happy when planning. At the end of the day, it is an opportunity to spend time with your friends and family so don’t overthink it.
