Having a new home is a special occasion that calls for celebrations with friends and family. If you are a first-time homeowner, it is all the more reason to show off your Red Deer real estate and throw a housewarming party. Below is the continuation of our checklist for you to follow that will help you throw the most successful housewarming party of your life:
Step 6: Safeguard your valuables
Resist the urge to display your most exotic and expensive decorative pieces in your new home, especially if they are made of delicate materials such as glass and crystal. There will be many people over in your house, and you will not be able to keep an eye on all the guests at all times to make sure your decorative items will not be damaged. This is especially important if your guests are bringing children.
Step 7: Decorate/prepare the house
Before the arrival of your guests, spray some air fresheners, refresh the washroom supplies, light up the candles and replenish the tissue boxes. Also, remember to dress yourself up for a special evening. Just because you have spent all day preparing for the party does not mean you need to look like a tired housewife or houseman when you greet your guests!
Step 8: Start the party
Once a few guests have arrived, you can start the party by putting on the music, inviting them in and making small talk. Make sure you greet each guest as they arrive and make sure they are comfortable. If you wish, you can show them around the house personally and offer them food and drinks.
Step 9: Socialize and mingle
Walk around and introduce your guests to each other so that they will know each other. Mingle with all the guests and let
them enjoy each other’s company. Remember to be mindful to your guests’ taste of music and change it if need be.
Step 10: End the night with grace
Accept compliments about your new home and endeavor with grace and end your night saying goodbye and thanks to each guest. The day after the party, you should follow up with thank-you emails to your guests to thank them for any gifts they have brought along.
