Hosting a housewarming party after purchasing a new home may seem like an outdated tradition. However, what better way to celebrate such a milestone than by getting together with friends and family? Such a gathering is a fantastic opportunity to relax after the stress of moving and spend time sharing ideas and settling in. It is a time to share your vision for any changes you plan to make and to kick off a new season.
Celebrate without Stress
You may feel pressure to have everything unpacked and in its place before opening your doors. However, part of the fun of a housewarming party is celebrating transition! Take some of the pressure off yourself and just unpack the essentials. Don’t be bothered by boxes in the bedrooms.
Feast without Fanfare
Similarly, keep the cuisine simple. Your friends don’t expect you to serve a complex meal after a big move, so you shouldn’t either. Save yourself the hassle and serve simple snacks on cute paper plates. A vase of flowers or a few candles will keep the casual serving area festive.
Share Your Dreams
When you give the grand tour, share your dreams for the home. For example, even if all of the walls are still white, paint a picture of the changes you plan to make. If you imagine a certain wall red or hope to install an entertainment center, share these details. Your guests will not only share in your excitement but may also have recommendations for great painters or carpenters.
