Expert Advice for Hosting a Great House Warming Party!

 So, you've just finished buying a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. Firstly, congratulations! Now that you've gotten the hard part out of the way, here comes the fun! Hosting a housewarming party at your new residence is a great way to break-in the new home. This gives you an opportunity to show off your fabulous new asset to friends and family in a celebratory and memorable way. In this week's blog, the Fran Campbell Team is giving you a few housewarming essentials to showcase your new home at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Create a Fun Theme!

Having a theme in mind when celebrating your home purchase can be an effective way to ease the planning process for some of the housewarming items such as menu and decoration. It also allows guests to narrow down their choices for dress, gifts, food, and other items that are often considered when attending a housewarming party.

Make Your Home Enticing

You're inviting guests over to celebrate your purchase of a new home, make sure that all the rooms are neat and ready to be seen. After all, they are going to expect a tour of the home they are celebrating in! This means making a diligent sweep of the home before guests arrive, ensuring that all laundry, boxes, trash, and all other housekeeping tasks have been accounted for. Obviously, your home isn't intended to stay this way, as you live in it! But for this particular day, ensuring the house is in impeccable condition to be showcased is vital.

Skip the Grand Tour & Fine Dining

While it can be appealing to wait until all guests have arrived to give them one grand tour all at once, it is beneficial to provide quick, individual house tours as you meet guests. Doing so gives you the opportunity to have a more personal, one-to-one conversation with your guests, enhancing the experience for everyone. As for the four-course meal you may have been planning, this can actually detract from the essence of the celebration. The celebration should be showcasing your home and it's amenities, not necessarily showcasing fine cuisine. Offering finger-foods encourages mingling throughout the home, which will provide a great atmosphere.

Fill the Air 

Speaking of creating a great atmosphere, you can enhance the vibe of the party by introducing pleasant music playing softly in the background, as well as utilizing pleasant scents to fill the air. This could be the first time that you are meeting some of your neighbors, so creating a warm and inviting atmosphere helps to ease any nervousness that may be lingering. It could also lead to some eye-opening conversations about musical interests. Lighting candles or baking are great ways to add pleasant scents to the home for you and your guests to enjoy. 

Invites & Thanks

One of the top due diligence for hosting any party are the invites/welcomings and giving thanks for coming. It's important to act as a gracious host and send professional invitations and thank you cards before and after your event. Hiring a professional printing company can effectively accomplish both tasks and shows your guests that their time meant a great deal to you. Try to be casual and genuine with your cards.
