Moving into a new home is a very exciting time in your life and a big event for you. Once you’re settled in a bit you may decide that you want to host a housewarming party so your friends and family members can see your new place.
The following tips are going to help you throw the perfect get together so you feel satisfied with all your efforts and hard work when it’s all over. Take your time and do it right so that you don’t have any regrets later on. A good first step is to create a guest list and send out invitations so visitors can clear and mark their calendars.

Get Your House in Order

Your first order of business should be to unpack a bit and get your belongings organized. A few areas to pay extra attention to are the guest bathroom and any rooms or outdoor space where you’ll all be mingling for the gathering. You may also want to think about putting out some of your d├ęcor to make your place look more homey and cozy. Some ideas include getting live plants, lighting candles and putting out a few family photos. Most importantly, make sure your house is clean and tidy and you hide any boxes that still need to be unpacked.

Plan Food & Activities

You can host a successful housewarming party by being picky about what food and drinks you offer. Regardless of what types of food you have out, be sure to have enough of it if you want people to go home feeling content. Think about placing different appetizers around the house and kitchen and outdoor area so it forces people to spread out and see your place.
In addition, you should think about having a few different activities to keep your guests entertained. One idea that will make your party that much more fun is to look into dunk tank rentals and getting your spouse or a friend to be the one who gets dunked. This is a great idea if you have a big backyard you want to show off, and this sort of activity will certainly spark up some laughter amongst your guests.

Be A Good Host & Enjoy Yourself       

Your housewarming party will be that much better and more successful when you’re a good host. For example, welcome each of your guests and make them feel at home right away. Introduce people who don’t know each other and encourage your visitors to eat the food and ask them what they want to drink right away. Also, be sure to relax and enjoy the party yourself and be proud of all your hard work and the home you purchased.


Implement this advice as you put together and plan your housewarming party and it’s sure to be a success. What’s most important is that you have your house looking nice and take people on tours so they can see and enjoy your new space and celebrate this big and special occasion with you.
