You finally got your boxes unpacked, all your addresses changed, and have started to settle into your new place. What next? Nothing can make your new house feel like home like a good housewarming party. Housewarming parties are a great way to meet your new neighbors, celebrate your new digs, and take a break after the stress of moving. Our Florida movers at Baymeadows knows how important a good housewarming party can be so we are here with some tips on how to throw a good housewarming party that won’t break the bank.
The more people you want to have over the more expensive your party will be. Consider limiting the guest list to close friends, families, and perhaps your immediate neighbors. The fewer people you invite, the less heavy your budget will be. Florida movers recommend a guest list between 10-20 people.
Instead of shelling out some dough to buy food and drinks, make it a potluck style and have your guests each bring a dish of some drinks. That way, you have to pay less on food and drink and it makes clean up at the end easier; everyone can just take away their leftovers instead of you having to clean up.
Normally, we would say don’t worry about the decorations, but if you must, then the dollar store is your best friend. You can buy all kinds of cheap party and decorating supplies including plates, cups, utensils, and more.
The best time to set a housewarming party date is a few months after you have moved in and have everything situated. You want to give yourself enough time so you can recover financially after the move.
