What better way to break in your brand new home than having your friends and family over to help you celebrate!!! If you’re looking for great housewarming party ideas, check out these tips for throwing an awesome housewarming party!
We have a tradition in our family of having “family dinner” with the local members of our family. We don’t get to see our parents that often because both sets of parents live out in California. But luckily we have plenty of aunts, uncles, and cousins who are local, and we keep in touch through family dinners.
So when we bought our first house about two years ago, we hosted family dinner in our brand new home! It was actually more of a family brunch, but it was a great way to celebrate the new house and spend time with our family!

The first step is to send out invites; EVITE has a bunch of great housewarming invitations!
Moving into a new home is definitely worth celebrating, so make sure you have something special like champagne to help you celebrate! And of course, remember to have non-alcoholic alternatives as well. You can set up a fun little drink bar for your guests; all you need are beverages, glasses, and some lemon and lime slices in small bowls like these Rubbermaid® Glass with Easy Find Lids™.
Appetizers and small snacks are a great way to serve food at a housewarming party; you can prepare them ahead of time so that you can spend less time cooking and more time hanging out with your friends and family! The Rubbermaid® Glass containers will look great on the table, and they make clean up a breeze; just snap on the Easy Find Lids and you’re good to go!
Or you can always order takeout. When JM and I first moved into our house it was dinnertime before we realized we hadn’t unloaded the dining table and chairs yet, so we just ordered a pizza and ate it out of the box, sitting on the floor!
Your house might be a bit bare (especially if, like us, it’s your first home and you moved out of a tiny apartment so you don’t even have enough furniture to fill the space), but you still only get one chance to give your guests a first impression of your home. Don’t worry about filling your house with furniture before your party; the smaller things like photos, artwork, and candles will help make your house feel more like a home.
