How To: Host a House-Warming Party

Hosting a housewarming party is an exciting time for any new homeowner, but we all know how stressful the planning can be. And while it is important to make sure the guests will have a good time, it is just as important to make sure the host treats themselves to a nice time too. Planning a housewarming party without stress can be challenging, but it is possible! Here are some tips to make your planning easy and stress-free.

Create a To-Do List with a Timeframe

Make a list of things that need to be done and give yourself a time frame to prevent procrastination. This list should include cleaning, cooking, shopping, decorating, etc. Keep the list simple!

Attend the Monthly Resident Meetups

When you move into a new apartment, meeting new people can often be a challenge; therefore, having people to invite to your housewarming party can be difficult. Luckily, Faros Residential hosts monthly resident meetups for all residents to make new friends… new friends that could potentially attend your housewarming party. Planning a party is always easier when you have a great guest list.

Make the Invitations Simple

A housewarming party is a fun and casual gathering so keep the invites simple. An email or even a text is a great way to tell your friends. If you see your neighbor in the gym or lounge, mention the party to them.

Set up a Bar with Tasty Apps

Whether you are able to provide all of the drinks or your party is BYOB, be sure to have a place to keep the beverages cold. Keep the food simple. Put out some tasty appetizers like buffalo chicken dip, sliders, cheese & crackers, and nut variations. These options taste great and are easy to make!

Use Paper Products

The worst part about a party is the cleanup when it’s over. A great way to make the cleanup easier is to use paper products for the party. This will keep your kitchen clean and your set up simple.

Have a Killer Playlist Ready

A party is nothing without good music. Be sure to have a long playlist with all of the great classics and new hits. If conversation dies down between the guests, music will be there to fill the awkward silence.
