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.
