Housewarming Tips and Pointers to Remember

Housewarming parties are always fun because the new homeowners get to share their newly bought (or mortgaged) property with friends and family! But as easy as it is to plan for a get-together with the gang, one can easily make a couple of mistakes when planning a party.

Housewarming Tips and Pointers to Remember

Here are some tips and pointers to consider if you’re planning to throw a housewarming party:

1. Planning it during the rainy season (if you’re looking to celebrate it in your backyard) is a huge risk. Look up weather forecasts online and plan accordingly. It’s also recommended that you send your invites weeks in advance to guarantee better attendance.


2. Always have some extra ice ready, whether for beverages or frozen treats. This is so you’ll always have cold drinks prepared  even if a power outage happens.

3. Do be frivolous about decor and food. Have a budget ready and only spend within that limit.

4. Make sure the time, date, and address are legible in your invitation. Hiring a bad graphic designer may affect how the invited perceive what’s written.

5. If you plan on spraying pesticide, do it six hours before the start of the party. Be sure to have room scents or fragrances to remove unwanted odors and keep the area smelling fresh.

6. Not creating a housewarming gift registry may result in storage clutter. Let the guests know what you want rather than letting them buy generic or traditional gifts.
