Moving into a new house is an exciting time. Typically, people like to commemorate the occasion with a celebration. A housewarming party is a great way to accomplish this. Here’s a quick list to have a memorable housewarming.
- Pick Date and Time: Usually weekends work well. Send out invitations in the mail, on social media, or via text.
- Greet the Guests: Personally, greet each guest that comes. Try not to engage in a long conversation with anyone at this point so you don’t miss anyone that comes through the door.
- Give a Tour: You don’t necessarily need to allow your guests to wander around your new home. Once you have given some time for people to arrive, you can bring everyone in a group to see all of the house. Later in the evening, you might offer another tour for anyone that showed up late.
- Feed the Guests: Put out simple finger foods and drinks. If it is within your budget you can get fancy with the food, but most people will not be expecting a sit-down meal at a housewarming party. If you do offer a meal, make sure that is something you let people know ahead of time.
- Accept compliments: Politely and graciously accept compliments about your home. Moving into a new home is a big personal accomplishment whether it is the first or fifth time.
- Mingle: Here is the time you can have longer conversations. After the tours are over and people have settled down, you might even break out a few games that work well with groups.
- Send Thank You Notes: People will want to come visit again if you send kind gestures. Again, this can be in the mail, social media, or via text. These are best personalized to the individual.
