Successfully Moving From The Old Location

House-Warming Party

After successfully moving from the old location and starting to settle down in a new residence, you need to host your friends to a party. During this occasion, you show them your new home. Everyone present celebrates plus they also bring gifts. Such a celebration is what people term as a house-warming party. There are no formalities like giving speeches or having a chief guest to declare that you have now officially moved. No, instead people come to see your new house and indulge in food, drinks and music. You can also take your friends on a tour of the house.

Even though there is no mandatory requirement for someone to come with a gift, it is necessary to carry something. One can opt to buy a picture frame, flower vase or a decorated wall hanging. Other welcome alternatives include gift baskets and foodstuff. For further enjoyment, a bottle of wine or whiskey would be an excellent choice.

To set the celebration mood rolling, here are a few ideas you would want to explore:

Plan the day

Before you choose a date, ensure that you have moved in all the furniture to the respective rooms. You do not want your friends and neighbors to come and find the place looking shabby. Decide on the type of event. A light meal, some bites washed down with a few drinks would suffice. On the other hand, decide on whether you would prefer a setting where guests arrive in the afternoon and leave by sunset. If you like, you could go for an elaborate dinner, but everything boils down to planning.

Guests Stay For Dinner And Depart Late Into The Night


Notify your guests ahead of time to allow them to fit the date into their schedule. For a casual event where people pop in, stay a while and leave in the evening, notify them in a week’s time. On the contrary, if you plan on throwing a huge party where guests stay for dinner and depart late into the night, three weeks would be sufficient notification.

Prep common areas

Get your washrooms cleaned up and stock them with toilet paper. You also need towels, soap and air freshener. Expect the toilet and bathroom to have high traffic especially when you plan on serving beverages and alcohol. Keep these items visible and accessible to avoid the embarrassment of someone always asking for a tissue roll.

Bring out your best music collection

A party without music gets dull, boredom sets in quickly and people do not stay for long. Take out your CD collection and arrange it in such a way that the favorite DJ mixes are at the top.

Housewarming parties are an excellent way to meet your neighbors and a social event for friends all wrapped in one. Ensure that you have unpacked all moving boxes but if you run out of time, stack them neatly. Otherwise, success lies in planning, sending timely invitations and meticulous preparation. Remember to thank your guests later for showing up.

★★★★★ 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.
