A housewarming party is a great way to show your new home to your friends and family. These parties can also be a good way to meet and get to know your new neighbors and develop connections in the local community. Such parties are especially important if you’re moving across a long distance or to a new state because developing connections with the neighbors can prove to be helpful down the line.
These parties also allow your children to interact with other children from the neighborhood in a supervised environment. Most new homeowners have to host a great housewarming party to ensure they have a good impression on their neighbors. Here are some tips and recommendations that can help you:
- Determine what kind of party you want and when you intend to host it
Some people like to have a formal dinner and housewarming party while others love the idea of a casual lunch to show off their home during the daytime. If you have some time on your hands, you can also host a themed housewarming party. It’s a good idea to host a party when your family, friends, and neighbors are free to attend. Friday nights or weekends work well as most people have some free time on their hands.
- Send out personalized invitations
The invitations are a great way to have a good impression on your neighbors and encourage them to attend the party. Choose something simple and elegant and be sure to include the RSVP date in the invite as that will help you plan for the right amount of guests. Send an email invite to your friends, relatives, and colleagues and reserve the paper invite for people whose contact details you don’t have.
- Clean the home and make sure it’s presentable
Remove the clutter such as packing material, moving boxes, etc, and make sure the space is presentable. Cleaning the clutter will also ensure there’s enough room for people to move around and see the house in its full glory. Make sure there are enough chairs and couches for people to sit and rest their feet if needed as this is a common concern during housewarming parties.
- Prepare the bathroom
The bathroom should have enough toilet paper, air freshener, hand soap, and additional bathroom towels. The bathroom will be used quite often, especially if the party lasts for a long time and includes a lot of drinks. It’s important to keep the bathroom well-stocked and ready for the increased foot traffic.
- Put away anything delicate and valuable
Accidents can happen during these parties so it’s a good idea to put away anything that’s expensive and is liable to break. There’s always a chance that strangers and new neighbors might not be trustworthy so it’s wise to lock away anything that’s too valuable and expensive.
