There are a lot of things that you’ll need to plan when moving, but one thing that you may not have thought about planning is a housewarming party. Planning a housewarming party can be a good idea for several reasons – doing so is a great way to meet some new neighbors, it’s a great reward for finishing the move and it will give you some motivation to get everything unpacked and set up. The following are a few tips for planning a housewarming party at your new home:
- Make your guest list – Besides inviting friends and family, consider inviting some of your new neighbors. Simply go to some of your neighbors’ homes, introduce yourself and invite them. In fact, having a housewarming party is a great excuse to introduce yourself to your neighbors.
- Choose a convenient date – Give yourself two or three weeks after you’ve moved in to hold your housewarming party. Not only does this give you some time to unpack and get settled in, but it gives you enough time to invite guests and to allow them to plan ahead.
- Send out invitations – The easiest way to do this is through social media. Request RSVPs so that you can plan for food and drinks.
- Plan for food and drinks – Once you have your RSVPs, you can plan for food and drinks. The type of food you get depends on when you are holding your party. If you are having it around dinner time, guests will expect dinner. If it’s at night, then you’ll want plenty of snacks.
