5 Tips to Throw a Memorable Housewarming Party Ever

The best housewarming parties encourage old friends to visit your new digs and help foster new friendships with your neighbors! We've all been there and know that moving into a new home is hectic, to say the least. Even though you may feel like you can't even afford to throw a party, it'll be the best decision you would have taken! After all, nothing beats a great house party.

And after it has finally happened, when you have found your dream house/apartment, packed and moved all your stuff, organized your den (more or less), it is time to get cozy and comfortable and make the house your home. And how can that happen without sharing the happiness with your near and dear ones? With just a few steps you will be on your way to planning a grand party filled with the best housewarming party ideas.

1. The Invitation
The cutest and most warm way to send an invitation is to click and print a picture of your humble abode and write a hand-written note to everyone. This shouldn't be much of a trouble considering your guest list is a moderately short one. And you would definitely want to include your neighbors!

2. The Decor
A few simple gestures can make the guests feel at home without you trying so hard. Leave the door open to the guests, don't over-decorate, you might want to take that time to organize your furniture and the innumerable unopened boxes. Make sure you have enough space for the guests to comfortably move around. Instead of keeping a guest book, stick a few colorful post-it notes PO on your living room wall for the guests to write you a lovely message.

3. The Food
In case you're not planning to throw a proper night-time dinner party, finger foods are the best option as it even keeps you out of the kitchen and socialize. The guests can indulge in some mock-tails, although you would want to keep a few alcoholic beverages as an option too. For the food, sushi rolls, cold cuts, potato and cheese bites, etc. Again, keep both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.

4. Party Gifts
Fill simple twine-wrapped brown bags with candies, chocolates, small tea candles as a sweet thank you gesture for gracing your house-warming party. It's fun, thoughtful, and fit for every age.

5. DIY It
Your new house deserves all the attention and time when you host your first-ever party in it. So, take the time to DIY little things such as the decoration, food, beverages, decor, and even the invitations. It goes a long way in showing how you have put in all your effort and time in really welcoming your friends, family, and new neighbors to your new den.

Most of all, have a great time and make friends with your neighbors. They will be like your family for the rest of the years.
