Make a Plan and Set a DateChoose your party time and type ahead of time. While most people tend to choose casual drinks and light bites, anything goes. Decide whether your event will be during the daytime or evening. You may want to open your home up for friends to come and go throughout the day or if your circle is a bit smaller, a more elaborate dinner party may better suite you. The size and scope of your party will dictate how early you will need send invites and start prepping.
Invitations are ImportantWith lots of great paperless invitation options, you can save paper and still keep things sophisticated. Don't forget to include a way to RSVP so you can be prepared for the big day (or night). If you are planning on a large crowd, you may consider sending invitations out at least three weeks in advance - don't forget to invite your new neighbors, it's a great way to break the ice and make new friends!
Food for the Crowd
From the selection to the style to the serving station, there is a lot to think about when it comes to food for a crowd. Plan out your menu in advance, ensuring you have the right mix of easy to pick-up, dip, or scoop options. Take advantage of summer favorites like fresh vegetables and fruit. You may want to avoid trying new or complex recipes as they could lead to difficulties in the kitchen - keep it simple, yet delicious.
Cue the Summer PlaylistGreat music is essential when throwing a great party. Create a mix of old favorites and new beats to please the whole crowd. If your home is multi-level you can create a different playlist for each level. Guests will gravitate toward their musical styling and appreciate the choice. Turn up the music before the guests arrive to put you in the party mood!
It's Your Party - Have Fun!You know what they say, don't sweat the small stuff. We know you want to host the perfect party, but it's possible that something will cause bumps along the way. In the spirit of celebrating your new home, just relax and have fun! You might want to delegate duties to friends or family, so you have time to document the party with photographs and give home tours to groups throughout the event.
Thank Your GuestsThank your guests for coming to your housewarming party as they leave that evening then again with a handwritten note. Personalized thank you notes are elegant and courteous and chances are, some guests brought gifts - they will especially appreciate the kind gesture.
