So, you’ve finally packed up your things and settled into your dream home. You’ve picked out the perfect furniture, linens and décor to add some style to your space and make it uniquely yours. Now, it’s time to celebrate. No move is complete without the perfect housewarming party to introduce yourself to your new neighbours. We know you can’t wait to invite everyone over and show off your hard work and beautiful home, and with these six easy steps, you’ll be able to throw a memorable housewarming party in no-time!
1. Get organized
Getting organized is the first step to throwing a successful housewarming party. You’ll need to decide on a date and time for your celebration. During this time, you’ll also want to create and finalize your guest list, and send out your invitations. A guest list will ensure that you have enough food, drinks and dishware for everyone attending.
2. Pick a theme
Having a theme for your housewarming party is a great way to up the fun factor. A theme is also useful when deciding on entertainment for the night. The great part about a themed party is that you can be as creative as you want! Some of our favourites are cocktail and hors-d'oeuvres, garden and costume parties!
3. Prep your home for guests
Seeing that you’ll be having more people than usual in your space, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared to receive all your guests. Take some time to clean up! It’s also a good idea to put away any valuables and fragile or delicate items to make sure they aren’t damaged while you and your guests party the night away. Another crucial step in prepping your home is prepping your bathroom. Stock up on toilet paper, hand towels, air freshener and hand soap, and make them easily accessible by your visitors.
4. Make a store run
It’s highly unlikely that you have enough refreshments and resources for everyone already available at home. So, to make sure your housewarming party is one for the books, you’ll want to make a quick store run and stock up on all the food and drinks you need to satisfy your hungry guests.
5. Create an awesome playlist
No party is complete without a bumping playlist. To make sure your guests stay entertained, curate a playlist ahead of time filled with a variety of well-known tracks from different genres. You could even put a few of your personal favourites in there to get you and your guests into the party mood.
6. Have fun!
Believe it or not, this may be the least obvious step for hosts striving to create the perfect experience for their visitors. Since you’ve put in so much work to create a memorable night, it’s important that you enjoy it along with your friends and neighbours!
Throwing an outstanding and fun-filled housewarming party doesn’t have to be a stressful process. With a little time, effort, and organization you’ll be able to have a good time and enjoy your new home with the ones that matter the most!
