Do you need to show off your new digs by throwing a housewarming party? Your family, friends, and new neighbors should be on the invitation list. However, going overboard can tire you financially and physically.
So, if you want to throw a stress-free and memorable party, below are four basics you should follow.
1. Come Up With a Menu
A menu can incorporate a variety of dishes. You see, there are lots of food restrictions that include:
- Non-gluten diet
- Lactose intolerance, etc.
Prepare lamb chops for meat lovers. There are many finger-licking lamb chop recipes so that you can choose the most suitable. Similarly, for those with a sweet tooth, desserts would be better. Also, remember to include drinks (warm or cold).
2. Send Out Invites
Since it’s not a formal set-up, consider sending invitations via text, email, or social media. However, for your neighbors, word of mouth is enough. Also, try to send invites early to know who might not come. Close acquaintances and co-workers might also want to know about your new place.
A housewarming party should be low-key since it features your house. Therefore, don’t go over and beyond while decorating. First, make sure there is minimal floral arrangement and balloons. The place should also be warm. Second, consider furniture and a makeshift shade if outside.
4. Should There Be Gifts?
A housewarming party is among the ancient traditions, like weddings. Hence, you expect your older friends, family members, and neighbors to bring gifts. Yet, you can specify in your invitation if you prefer otherwise.
So, as you can see, there’s a lot to consider before you throw a housewarming party of the year. The point is to make new friends, show off and have a good time.
