House Warming Party Tips

Your new home is reason to celebrate, so why not throw a housewarming party? Your gathering will give family and old friends a chance to visit your new home. You may also use this event as an opportunity to mingle with new neighbors. If you do invite a lot of people, consider hosting an open house where guests can drop in at anytime during the hours you designate. Whether you host an open house or traditional style housewarming party, be prepared to give whole house tours and provide refreshments.

The house is the main decoration right? 

Depending on your organization level, boxes can be your decorations!  But really, not too much is needed to decorate a house warming just grab a personalized house warming banner, or a life size cutout of the host for your entrance and some candles for the tables and around the room.

Here are a few more fun housewarming party ideas –

Feature the “Sold” sign from your real estate agent, or at least a picture of you with it!

Local maps make great decorations. Hang them on walls, wrap them around glass hurricane candle holders, use them as placemats… get creative!

If you’ve made renovations or update to your home, post a “before” picture outside each room.

Leave a guest book by the front door and encourage everyone to write you some homeownership wisdom.

Keys are another wonderful house theme decoration. Check the local antique store for skeleton keys to incorporate in your decor.
