So you've moved into your brand-new Artisan Built home - sounds like this occasion calls for a celebration to us! We think a housewarming party is a perfect way to enjoy your new home and invite family and friends to join in the excitement!
The place you choose to call home is special and you should share that with those you love most. If you're not sure about how to get started, we've gathered the best tips on how to host a fantastic housewarming party to celebrate your new home and show it off to guests!
Pick a Date
First things first, select the best time to share your home with family and friends. Don't feel the need to rush, your family deserves time to settle into your new home before hosting guests! Take time to make your house truly feel like home before sharing it with others.
Typically, most housewarming parties are casual occasions where guests are free to come and go throughout a certain timeframe. Select a clear start and end time such as two to four hours on a weekend afternoon or evening to ensure you know when to expect guests to arrive.
Invite Your Guests
Next, you need to decide who you want to invite to your soiree! This is your first opportunity to share your home with others, so consider who will most help you warm this new special space among your family and friends. Make sure to send out invitations ahead of time - at least two to three weeks - to give your guests adequate time to plan for the occasion. You can also plan to send out reminders a few days before.
Start off on the right foot and get to know your neighbors by inviting them to your gathering! Extending an invitation to close neighbors or other homeowners from your community is a wonderful way to introduce your family to the neighborhood and make new friends.
Prep Your Home
While your housewarming is an occasion to celebrate with friends and family, it's also an opportunity to show off your beautiful new home! That's why your home should appear prepped and seamless for the event. Every space should be open and easily accessible for guests to pass through.
Plan out spaces where you'll serve food and drinks, as well as comfortable seating areas for your guests. Organize your home to allow space for all your guests and clear up any clutter. Guests will want to take a look around, so you'll want your home to look as gorgeous as ever!
Choose Party Food
We all know that the best parties are sure to have amazing food options, so be sure to serve delicious food that your guest will enjoy!
As housewarming parties are often a more casual affair, it's best to set out light food choices and drinks for guests to grab - think hors d'oeuvres and charcuterie board spreads! These foods should be easy to prepare and will offer guests plenty of options to choose from.
Expect to Give Tours
Your housewarming party is the perfect opportunity to highlight everything you love about your new Artisan Built home! What better way to make sure they see everything that makes your new home special than by giving them a tour?
We suggest mapping out a full tour of your home to seamlessly lead your guests from room to room. Point out your favorite features and spaces to show family and friends the wonderful aspects that inspired you to make this your new home!
Send Thank You Notes
Show guests your appreciation for their company by sending out thank you cards after your special occasion. They'll appreciate the thoughtful gesture and you'll be able to share how much you enjoyed the event thanks to each of them!
