How to Plan A House Warming Party?

What a better way to welcome someone to a house they have just moved into than to host a housewarming party. Other than it being a great get-together for old friends, it gives you a chance to meet new ones. After introductions, you learn that these are your neighbors for as long as each remains in the locality. However, having come from a hectic and tiresome moving phase, throwing a party is the last thing on your mind. You could feel embarrassed to have guests, yet you have not finished unpacking. Where will they sit, when the house looks all messy?

Even with the genuine concerns mentioned above, a housewarming party could turn out as a motivator. Use the ideas below and see how enjoyable the event becomes:

Choose a day and set the time

With most of your belongings still in packing boxes, start planning for the party. Unlike birthdays or wedding anniversaries, here you are at liberty to pick any day of your liking. Consult members of your family and agree on an appropriate time when everyone can participate. At the same time, bear in mind the current weather.

Invite your guests

Start sending invitations to friends from the old locality, family members, and your new neighbors. Expand your circle such that you do not leave out people you have interacted with in the past and those you will frequently be meeting. Request the invitees to confirm attendance so you can make further plans with an exact number in mind.

Plan A House Warming Party

Decide on the day’s menu

Determining what you will serve your guests during the party is key. Where close family members and a few friends will attend, it would be wise to hire a caterer. Some bitings and cocktails are in order plus some snacks for the children.

Remember to buy a guestbook

Buy a book where your guests can sign, write their names and contact details. Choose a guestbook that has a place for comments where visitors can write a few words to welcome and encourage your family. You could also request them to provide tips on where you can find the best plumber, electrician, locksmith and so on.

Line-up fun activities

Look for things that people can take part in as they mingle and pass the time. A pack of cards, karaoke, and secret hunts are some fun examples. In the hunting game, you can hide some items around the house. Using a map, one should go and find the hidden ‘treasure’ as other guests cheer them on.

Soon after the moving personnel from the company you hired have gone back, you should have a housewarming party. No one expects you to have arranged your house neatly. So, proceed to set a date and time. Send invitations widely to family, friends and soon-to-be neighbors. Have a menu to guide you on food and drinks. Have a book where guests sign and share their views. Also, prepare to keep them busy with indoor games.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
