Top Tips for Throwing an Amazing Housewarming Party
If you’ve just moved into a new home you love, you’ll more than likely want to celebrate this new chapter in your life with your friends and family. Throwing a housewarming party is a great way to catch up with all your loved ones and introduce them to your new home all at the same time. Unlike bars and clubs, you’ll be able to control all the details of the night, so to take advantage of this, we’ve compiled a list of how to create the perfect setting and atmosphere for your housewarming party.
If you’re really looking to blow every other housewarming party out the water, then forget about the cocktail sausages and crisp bowls. Step up your food game by creating a beautifully presented and Instagrammable buffet – try serving mini burgers, single-serving desserts, or even sushi rolls! Anything your guests can grab and go will be perfect. We recommend using paper plates for easy clean up the next day.
Ensuring you’ve stocked up on a selection of drinks is essential for a party! We suggest having wine, beer and a few spirits on hand, but also don’t forget to have your fridge filled with soft drinks for those who won’t be drinking alcohol. You could even set up a cocktail bar where people could mix their own cocktails, which will create a fun talking point for your guests. Finally, don’t forget to have plenty of ice in your freezer!
To make the best party playlist, make sure there are enough songs on there to last the entire duration of the evening, as you don’t want to be listening to the same songs all night. Use a selection of different genres so there will be something for everyone but take inspiration from pre-made party playlists as they’ll have some classic party tracks for you to choose from.
Not only is this a great opportunity to catch up with friends and family, but this is the perfect time to introduce yourself to your new neighbours. Personally invite them along to the party, as just warning them things might get loud won’t sit well with them. This avoids any police visits and having to shut down the party earlier than planned, which will end the night on a downer when you’d planned to have a good time.
If you’d like to throw a party a little more unique, then try setting a theme for the party. You could do different decades and have playlists to match! Or if you’re feeling adventurous, have an ‘around the world’ theme and have a selection of food from different cultures. We recommend a casino and Vegas theme, as you could have a lot of fun games set up and everyone could dress up extra fancy!
Last but not least, don’t get too caught up in hosting and have fun! You’ve earnt it, as moving can be a stressful time for you, so sit back and relax in the company of all your family and friends.
