welcomeMoving into a new apartment or house is the perfect excuse to do one thing: throw a housewarming party! Having a housewarming party means you have a chance to get all of your friends together, show them your new digs and break the place in.

Never thrown a housewarming party before?  Worry not.

Everything from the invitations to the decorations to the party favors are covered in these 30 blog posts. All you have to decide is if you want to have an intimate gathering or a big bash!

Invitations

These five blog entries cover everything you need to craft the perfect invitation.

Menu

While you may want to wow your friends with a gourmet spread, you shouldn’t spend the entire night slaving away in the kitchen.  Instead of preparing a full dinner, pass appetizers throughout the night, or arrange a potluck so the burden of feeding everyone who comes doesn’t fall squarely on your shoulders.

Tablescape

Decorate the table with a clever house-related theme, such as keys or nests, then load the table with food.

If you find yourself uncertain with how to proceed, read the following five blog entries.

The Tour

Once you’ve handled the invites, food and decorations, it’s time for the main event: the house tour. Decide ahead of time if you want to do a single tour or several small ones, then set up specific times to do so.

For an Apartment

You aren’t automatically excluded from having a housewarming party just because you move into an apartment.

Moving into a new place, no matter what the size, is cause for celebration!

If you’re apartment won’t hold very many people, you could even break it up into a couple different housewarming parties.

The next five blog posts explain all the differences with an apartment housewarming party, that way you’re thoroughly prepared for whatever comes your way.

Favors

Baking some cookies and putting them in a cellophane bag with a ribbon on it is an easy, delicious treat you can give each of your guests.

Favors are the perfect punctuation mark to the end of any party and I personally love to give edible treats because it’s economical, and the recipient doesn’t have to worry about using it or storing it. In this case I made classic shortbread cookies. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like these melt-in-your-mouth cookies, and they hold their shape when baking so they’re just right for using themed cookie cutters. For a housewarming party, what could be more appropriate than a house shaped cookie?!
