Don’t be afraid to celebrate you! Housewarming parties are the perfect excuse to gather your friends, and celebrate your new space. Whether you’re brand new to your condo, if you recently finished renovating a fixer upper, or you want to showcase a single piece of new furniture, housewarming parties are a great way to party in your new property. Here are a few tips to make your housewarming party a groundbreaking success:
The more the merrier! Moving into a new area can be intimidating, especially if you don’t have too many friends in the area before you move in. Try not to make your guest list too exclusive; invite friends, family, coworkers and neighbors in the area to your gathering. Although it may seem like a daunting task at first, opening your home to a wide range of people will prove to be a fun and rewarding experience and will create many memories and friendships to last a lifetime.
Save a Space for Everyone
Make your guests feel welcome by ensuring there is a space for every guest to soak in the ambiance. Decorative benches from Wovenbyrd can perfectly accentuate a cozy space, while storage ottomans can double as a seat and a secret hiding spot for tv remotes and loose magazines. Considering a more intimate gathering? Maximize your space by staging a barrel chair and storage seat near a spot with a television or a room with a view all the while bringing a splash of color to liven up your den. Wovenbyrd’s wide range of seating sections allows customers to personalize their own space without having to sacrifice seating or quality.
Cook Your Favorite Appetizers
Consider how many individuals will be joining you for your party before making any meal decisions. If you’re struggling for party pleasing meals and appetizers, consult Pinterest, Allrecipes.com, and Better Homes & Gardens Recipes for appetizer and meal inspiration. If you opt for a smaller, tight-knit group of friends, consider larger sit down meals that can be made simply with the aid of a crockpot. However, if you choose to invite a larger group of friends, consider making people-pleaser appetizers in larger quantities, such as various veggie platters, dips, and sweet treats. The wider variety of snacks will be sure to pacify any hungry crowd, and will be great midnight snacks for a later date as well.
Curate a Playlist
Let music help set the mood! Using platforms like Spotify or Apple Music, you’ll be able to listen to various pre-curated playlists depending on what your music preference is. If you’re dead set on creating your own playlist, consider making a collaborative playlist on Spotify that allows invitees to add songs to the mix. Make sure you have plenty of speakers set up, and ensure your music levels are not overpowering by testing them before your guests arrive. The more you can prepare ahead of time, the easier your hosting duties will be!
It’s your part, be a little extra; consider various themes for your housewarming party! Is your new place a little old fashioned? Consider throwing a decade party, where all guests come dressed up in their favorite decade! If you have themed furniture, such as Wovenbyrd’s Barrel Accent Chairs, get creative and experiment and let your personality shine through!
