Now that you have moved into your beautiful new home, here are a few tips for throwing a stress-free housewarming party. Show your friends and neighbors everything there is to love about your new space:
Our first tip is to wait till you are ready, or at least the boxes feel a little bit under control. Everyone is different when it comes to when they want to have people in their new home. Bottom-line, let it be a stress-free housewarming party in the first place by not adding the stress of a timeline.
Keep the food simple with pre-made cheese and cracker platters from your local deli or other foods that can be easily prepared. Pick foods that can be mostly done the day before, and simply set out before people come over. Or check out this list of 75 housewarming party food ideas.
Chances are the last thing you want is more cooking and set up. Embrace the fact you just moved in and buy disposable plates, cups, napkins, and cutlery. Expecting a crowd? Check out our tips for hosting in your new home, here.
Make it short and sweet. Get-togethers tend to run longer and later than we usually plan. To cut down stress of a late-night, specify the end time 30 minutes before you actually want to end. Then you can focus on enjoying time with guests, instead of the time.
Our last tip for a stress-free housewarming party in your new home is to prepare to give people a tour of your new home. This is not mandatory, and you should never feel pressured into sharing the new space ( you are probably still unpacking). Still, let your friends and family celebrate your beautiful new home with you by giving them the grand tour.
