Housewarming Party! Yay! How to be a Great Host!

Your Housewarming Party . . . How to Be a Great Host!











Hey there, Daymond here! Let's talk entertaining! So, everything is finally done with you moving in your new home, and you’re ready to throw a small housewarming party. If you’re not sure what to start with, here are a few tips that will help you out.


Plan Ahead



Decide how many guests you want to have over at your new house and what they are you going to eat and drink. Think about whether you have the space to serve your guests at a table or from a buffet. As far as beverages are concerned, make sure you have non-alcoholic beverages as well as wine and spirits.  Think about the fact that guests will be driving back to their homes from your housewarming party.


While planning, also think about some games or ice-breakers for your guests, especially if you’re having people over who don’t know each other.

You Don't Need to Do It All By Yourself


Ask your friends or your spouse for help in the kitchen. Also, consider hiring someone to do the cleaning. After all the work you will be putting into getting planning and setting up your housewarming parting, you should certainly not feel guilty about getting help! Besides, doing things like cooking and decorating are more fun when done in pairs or groups. Just make sure everything is done prior to the moment your guests arrive for your party.





Meet & Greet



You should make your guests feel welcomed by offering them something to drink as soon as they settle in. If you’re going to have them take their shoes off, then you should have some slippers on hand to offer them. Next, show them around your home and tell short, funny stories about what happened during the new build or  remodeling. Also, don't forget to introduce your guests to everyone as they arrive. To go the extra mile, you can also strategically recommend to them where to sit so that they may mingle.




Make Them Comfortable


If you own a non-smoking house, then prepare a space where your guests can smoke. On the balcony or the kitchen, provide some chairs, ashtrays and scented candles. For the bathrooms, don’t forget to have clean towels and soap prepared. As an extra touch, have some hand cream available, which will be very appreciated by your female guests.



If you have pets, then your friends and family members probably already know you have one; however, they may be bringing guests, some of whom may not like animals. So, ask your guests when you send out the invitations if they mind your pet being around at the party. That way, you’ll have time to decide in advance what to do with your pet when your guests arrive.





Don't Forget to Enjoy It Too!


Even if you’re the host, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourself! This is a party for everyone, including you. Don’t stress too much if something goes wrong, because the friends you’re having over will love you still!


Okay! Time to Get Started with Housewarming Plannin! Have Fun!
