Moving into a new house is an overwhelming experience. After the movers have left you alone with your boxes, the place doesn’t quite feel like home yet. A housewarming party is a wonderful way to bring life into your new home: meet the neighbors, fill your home with friendly faces and make your new place feel welcoming. Planning for your housewarming, however, does require some decision making. From personalized brown address labels on the invitations to displaying family photos in customized frames, here are some detail-oriented ideas to make your party the best it can be.
When planning your housewarming get-together, start with the invitations. Deciding who to invite depends on your situation: if you have moved within town, invite some old friends as well as some new neighbors, and bring your two worlds together. If you’re new to the area, keep it to just your immediate neighbors and new social or work acquaintances. When deciding on the right invitation, choose from a variety of customizable templates that best reflect your style. Small details, such as personalized brown address labels or monogrammed stationery, are what make your invitations stand out. When it comes to first impressions, it’s the little details that matter.
In preparing for the party, spruce up your new home with small personal accoutrements that capture your personality. Personalized photo collages and frames make for a great way to showcase your home and family to new friends. Monogrammed throw pillows add touch of class to your living room theme, creating an inviting space for your guests. Though you may not have fully moved in yet, these small décor items go a long way in making your home welcoming.
Don’t let the stress of moving into a new home get to you. Remember, the housewarming party is the light at the end of the tunnel. Once you see your house filled with friends and neighbors, you’ll remember why you moved into the house in the first place.
"I love these return address labels! They came in a secure package on sheets that are very easy to peel off. Great quality paper and they stick very well. Very chic and stylish and bold colors (not faded or anything). I will definitely be ordering more when I run out!!"
"Absolutely LOVE these! They are a bit bigger, just a side note, but that makes them even more unique! LOVE them- reordering more!"
"I love the address labels with the little monkey on them. I have a soft spot for monkeys and these make me smile. The service was so quick, and I'm very pleased with Tiny Prints!"
"I purchased these address labels for my sister who has always loved monkeys. The design on this was too cute to pass up. The address labels came out great, although the size is a bit larger than the standard address label size, but that didn't really bother me. My sister loved these, so I am very happy with my purchase!"
"I bought these as part of my sister shower present. She is using them for her thank-you notes. They match the invites wonderfully. They are really cute!!!"
