How to Throw a Great Housewarming Party
You finally moved to your dream house (or apartment or condo…), unpacked everything, cleaned up the clutter and now it’s time to show off your new home. What’s the best way to throw a housewarming party without breaking the bank?
Make a Plan
You want to give yourself plenty of time to plan your party. Planning ahead will allow you to actually enjoy the process instead of being stressed out by leaving everything until the last minute.
You can choose a theme for your party—it can be simple like a black and white party, a Star Wars party or a wine tasting party.
People take parties more seriously when they receive an invitation. You can use a service like evite.com for online invitations, complete with RSVPs, or you can mail invitations. You can purchase paper invitations or choose a company like Shutterfly to create a custom invitation. The better the invitation, the more excited your guests will be.
Prep Your Home
Because your home will have more people in it than usual, you need to plan accordingly. First clean your home well. Then, make sure there is ample seating. Don’t invite more people than you can accommodate—you want your guests to feel comfortable. You can add cushions on the floor and even rent or borrow chairs or benches. Don’t forget to add extra towels, soap and toilet paper in the bathroom. Make sure there are enough trashcans throughout your home so it’s easy for your guests to dispose of trash, plastic glassware, bottles and cans.
Put Away Fragile Things
It’s better to be safe than sorry. Remove fragile items from public areas of your home so your treasured antiques, sculptures or other valuables don’t get damaged or broken.
Make Your Home Smell Great
Use lightly scented candles, aromatherapy dispensers or plug-in fragrances so your home smells fresh and inviting.
Create a Play List
You can set the mood for your party with the right music. If you’re having a themed party, use appropriate music!
Stage The Food And Drinks In A Convenient Area
You want your guests to be able to enjoy food and drinks easily. You might want to place a food station in every room, so one area doesn’t get overcrowded.
