One of the most exciting things about moving to a new city is having a new home to show off. Make sure that a top long distance moving company has completely unpacked all your belongings and you've put them all away before checking out these tips to throw an awesome housewarming party.
1. The highlight of any housewarming party is the tour of the new house, so be sure to have a plan in mind for just how to handle this. According to PurpleTrail.com, if you're conducting the tour yourself, you'll need to have other family members to answer the door, welcome guests and entertain the other partygoers. As an added bonus, keep a few neat details that you want to show off in mind, like a unique decoration or an interesting backstory.
2. Polite guests are likely to bring housewarming gifts to your party, so be prepared for this. CasaSugar.com recommends setting one table aside and keeping it clear to display gifts. This not only keeps the place clutter-free but also gives other curious guests a chance to check out what presents other people bought. As an added tip, unless you know the value of a bottle of wine, set those gifts aside, lest the giver becomes offended that you're pouring an expensive vintage so liberally.
3. Apartment Therapy suggests party proofing your house, especially if most of the festivities will be taking place in a small area or if kids are involved. Rearrange furniture so that guests are less likely to bump into them and be sure to remove all breakable items and valuables from plain view or from vulnerable positions. After all, you wouldn't want to lose or break something just as you've unpacked it.
