First things first, getting settled in the new house completely is better before planning for a housewarming party. It is the best way to show off your new place in a much prepped up manner without any chaos.
Planning for a party? Choosing the appropriate date and time is the foremost thing. Pick a day when your friends and family members are available to make your party a superhit. As soon as you’ve confirmed the date and time, create cute invitations and send them out. Make sure you get the responses to the invitations well in advance, to have an average number of people attending the event at hand. It will help you arrange it in a better way.
Houses usually have limited seating capacity. And when you’re inviting more people, make sure your furniture arrangement helps you make enough space for all. Spread some carpets, cushions, chairs around the open space, apart from your existing furniture set to make up a cosy seating space for everybody.
While you’re all set to flaunt your new home to everybody, make sure you flaunt it in style. The decoration is an important part of a housewarming party. Pick a fun decoration theme by using various colours and elements that match the natural ambience of your house. You can go for a cosy theme by adding warm colours to the decor or pick a sassy and glittery variant for a sharper look. Adding flowers to the decoration will help you liven up space. Other than this, you can add elements like cartoons, quirky characters, or go for a retro or completely pastel-coloured decor too.
Potluck & Quick Food
The next important aspect of every party is food. When you’re talking about a housewarming party, the simplest thing to do is announce a potluck for food. It is a great way to escape the hassle of cooking so much food, all by yourself, and it helps to have a variety at the stand. Other than this, keep frozen food, chips, munchies, fruits and salad for snacking. Food that doesn’t need a lot of baking should be stocked in good quantities for a quick troll up.
Games & Fun
Entertainment is another important factor that will make your party a memorable affair. Make sure to keep games, cards and plan for fun icebreaker activities to help the guests mingle and make this party light and enjoyable. Throw in some usual games like cards, Jenga, board games, etc. Apart from that, plan for icebreaker party games like truth and dare, two truths and one lie, passing cushions, etc.
Formally warming up your house is a great opportunity to celebrate, flaunt and wow everyone with your party planning skills. Make sure you do this the right way and throw the best housewarming party one can cherish for a lifetime.
