When you shift to a new home, family members and friends are curious about your new place and would like to visit you. Instead of attending to every guest one at a time, it is best to announce a housewarming party for your loved ones. 

You may even get some help from others with unpacking and receiving gifts like a rug or a wall frame that can make your space feel more like home. 

Here are some top tips for planning a fun housewarming party for your loved ones. 

Finalize the Guest List

Go through your contact list and social media profile to create a guest list. When creating the list, bear in mind the amount of entertainment space your new home offers. If you want to invite more people and your living space won’t make it, then consider a clubhouse in your community. 

Discuss with your house members or spouse before you finalize the guest list. It will help you get an idea of how much food and drinks you will need to pick up. 

Choose a Theme

The theme that you choose serves as a first impression for your guests at the party. The invitations you send out should reflect the vibe you are going with. 

If you don’t want to send out paper invitations, then consider digital options. You can create a Facebook event with an exciting cover photo and invite your loved ones so that they see the post. 

Plan the Details

The next step is to plan out the details of the event. Include the place and time of the event on the invitation. You may also include any other directions for going to the event. 

Let the guests know what kind of food will be served and how many kinds of beer you will serve at the party. 

Decide the Menu

You can expect your guests to move around and mingle at the party. So, it is best to serve foods like finger food and quick grab appetizers. Double-check the guest list to know how much you need to order or prepare at home. 

Besides alcoholic drinks, you can also offer cold drinks and juices for your younger guests. 

Clean Your Space

Since your guests will be interested in a home tour, you would want to present your home in the best state. Before the party, make sure to give your home a deep clean.

Clean the bathroom, kitchen floors, and any common areas. You can light scented candles for a good first impression. Fold away the laundry and put away the empty boxes. 

Get the Supplies 

Before you go out to buy food items, make sure to give your refrigerator a thorough cleaning and throw away expired food. This way, you will have enough space to store beverages and desserts. 

If you don’t want to use your cutlery, buy paper plates, glasses, and napkins. Don’t forget to buy decorations like paper banners, confetti for the table, and candle stands.
