Housewarming party ideasby Business Listings Editor
Moving to a new house is definitely tiresome. But it can be exciting too! While transferring all your appliances and furnishings can squeeze gallons of sweat out of you, all the efforts will be rewarding once you get a sight of your newly-designed interior and finally get to invite families, friends and of course, new neighbours for that fun-filled housewarming party for your brand new home.
To start with, a housewarming party is a way to bond with your old and new friends, families, relatives and neighbours at your new place.
Tour them around your house and get design ideas from them if there’s still any part of the house that you find hard to put a design to or isn’t yet fully furnished.
It also serves as sort of a welcome party. Now if you plan to throw one, but don't have any idea on what to do just yet, here are some ideas and tips to get you started.
Set party gimmicks. Whatever type of party you decide to have, outdoor or indoor, formal or casual, it’s important that you have some attention-grabbers for a more memorable, more amusing treat.
Flag banners and string lights around the entire house and paint chip garlands will surely set the party mood and will give the festive ambience.
For a backyard barbecue party, you can administer thrilling outdoor games like obstacle courses, tug-of-war, darts and toss game.
For an indoor type, play indoor games such as Pictionary, Scrabble or card games. Do a mini treasure hunt within the house by hiding clues into the different rooms and corners, so that your guests can tour your house while having fun. Just don’t forget to give the winners of each game their prize!
