5 Ideas For a Great Housewarming Event!


    You have spent weeks stressing over documents, boxing up your valuables and closing dates, but now you are a HOMEOWNER! You start unpacking and arranging your belongings when suddenly it all comes together. YOU LOVE YOUR NEW PLACE!

What better way to show it off than a housewarming party. Everyone likes a party and there is no better reason to get all your friends together (plus, now they won’t have the “I don’t know where you live, that’s why I don’t come over” excuse) Housewarmings are a chance for you to show what you have accomplished, and your friends are going to love it.

Here are 5 themes to set your housewarming party apart from the rest!


1.       A stock the Bar Party!

Your friends will want to buy you a housewarming present, so why not make it easy on them. It can be beer, liquor, wine or even barware! Your invitations can have martini or champagne glasses; you can also use them as décor around the house. It will also make the food choices easy, things like sliders, potato skins, roasted almonds, and chicken wings would all be perfect.


  2.      A Keys Theme Party!

Use the significance of the keys you just received as a theme! You can use them in invitations, and around the house. You can purchase some skeleton keys at a local hardware store assign each key a number and a guest, later in the evening you can call out a number and this person can get a memorable gift of your choosing!  Cheeses, wines, some fruits and dark chocolates would be the perfect pairing for this classy gathering!



3.       A Garden Party!

Your new home might have wonderful landscaping, so gather your friends outside and take advantage of this. Or your new home might not have the landscaping you would like! Buy the plants you would like planted, invite some friends over and ask them to help. You can make this a fun outdoor day by serving some fresh fruits, salads, and light drinks such as Mojitos, Daiquiris and Margaritas. Just remember to let your friends now to bring clothes they don’t mind covered in dirt!


4.       The Fabulous Cocktail Hour!

A cocktail party takes care of not having enough seating for all your guests. You can create a drink menu prior to the party, make the mixes and serve them in large dispensers (keeping you out of having to work on drinks while trying to mingle) Just always keep a few non-alcoholic beverages for the non drinking guests. Pair it with light finger foods, and play some background music, there is no way this could ever go wrong!


 5.       A Summer Cookout!

This one is the ultimate favorite! If you are lucky enough to move during great outdoor weather, take full advantage. Being outdoors allows for your guest to feel free to engage in activities without you having to entertain. It also does great for your brand new floors or carpet! The food is easy and everyone pleaser, always make both chicken and beef for those friends with preferences, maybe even some veggie skewers! Just ensure you have a handy grill chef ;)
