Have you recently gotten started somewhere new? You probably feel pretty great in your new place, don’t you? If so, there’s one thing you have to do to commemorate your new place, it’s throwing a housewarming party. So, here’s some great ideas to help you get started planning your new place celebration:
Plan for great snacks
If you want to make your party a success, everyone knows that great snacks are the way to go. While your friends may bring you a housewarming gift basket or two, you still want to set up some of your go-to snacks and drinks to keep the food and beverage flowing for your guests.
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party for your guests or not, snacks are always a winner in any house party, so take time to plan what you’re going to serve to ensure a successful experience for all. You may be someone who doesn’t do things halfway and you throw a party with gourmet food. You may be someone who approaches things more casually and relaxed. Your chips, queso, and guacamole snacks are always a hit.
Set up a housewarming registry
While this is usually something you hear about for weddings or baby showers, you need some things for your new place, don’t you? There’s nothing wrong with accepting gifts in times like this, and most of the time, your guests are already planning to do so anyway. You can simply include the registry link with your housewarming party invitation and then see who shows up. You may find a lot of people are more than happy to give you the things you’re asking for.
Get the party started before you unpack
While you may be tempted to show off your new space in all of its glory, if you plan on throwing a large housewarming party, it could be wise to wait until after. After all, you want to make room for your guests to have a blast while also not having to worry about your home being ruined when you just moved in. Of course, this is to be said about large-scale parties. A more intimate dinner could certainly be ideal to host when everything is unpacked and ready to go.
If you want to sit back and relax at your party, make sure to let professionals take care of everything. You can hire caterers and bartenders to serve you and your guests, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Instead of having to prepare a gourmet meal or serve drinks all night long, enjoy your new space with those you love by hiring others to do it for you. If you want to go all out, you could always hire a party planner to create the whole vibe for you.
Invite those you want to be a part of your new place
When it comes to throwing a housewarming party, a lot of people think that they have to invite everyone and their sister and brother and mother. The reality is that you’re throwing a party to celebrate your new home and space, so think about who you really want to invite into your place. These are memories you’ll be making in your future there, so it makes sense to only invite those who you’re close to. From close friends to family, make your housewarming party one that will bring you great memories down the road.
A housewarming party is a great way to introduce your new space to your loved ones while also being a fantastic reason to throw a celebration. Whether you moved into a new home you bought or have upgraded your living situation, celebrating this change can be a fabulous way to feel good about something so monumental. From a large party to a more intimate dinner, make it the kind of celebration that is perfect for you.
