How To Make Your Housewarming Party One To Remember

Moving into your new home is an exciting milestone for you and your family. It’s a chance to make new beginnings and memories together. You’ll also want to show your new abode to your friends and family, and in what better way than a housewarming party?

Make it one to remember by following a few essential tips that are going to help you do it right. It’s best to go all out than it is not to plan and hope for the best. Get ready to roll your sleeves up and work hard to make sure it’s an event worth talking about. Give it your all, but then remember to relax and have fun on the day of the party.

Send out Unique Invitations

Your invitations set the tone for the housewarming party. Instead of doing what everyone else does, create invitations using Adobe Spark’s Free Invitation Maker. They even have the option for you to make a video invitation. A video invitation gives you the flexibility to describe your date with music and narration, giving guests an experience they are sure not to forget. Give your guests a sneak peak of your house and end it with a teaser about having to come to the party to see more.

Secure Enough Food

Whatever you do, make sure there’s enough food. You don’t want to run short and have your guests leave hungry. No matter if you cook or cater, make sure there’s a variety of food options and that there’s plenty to go around. The food is one of the main reasons people go to a party and all they’ll discuss after. Talk through the menu with your spouse and go online to research different ideas and themes.

Get your House in Order

While you’re not expected to have all the details organized after you move in, you do want to have your home looking presentable for the party. Focus on the rooms where your guests will be spending the most time first. Have enough seating and spots for people to mingle. Include candles, décor and small touches that make it look and feel homey. Push your party out far enough in advance that you give yourself enough time to prepare and organize a bit before the big day.

Offer Entertainment

Whether it’s for the kids, adults or both, have entertainment that spices up your party and makes it enjoyable for all. Hire a band, have a bouncy house or play yard games. Make sure there’s music playing in the background and give your guests a few different options for how they can amuse themselves while at the housewarming party. Since it’s a big milestone in your life, it’s worth spending a little extra money to make the party that much more memorable.


Keep in mind all the work that goes into having a housewarming party when you decide to invite people over. Plan and prepare in advance, so you’re not rushing around at the last minute. Enjoy showing off your new home and spending time with your company on the day of the event.
