Choosing to move often comes with several lifestyle changes, from how you commute to work to where you shop and where you socialize. The trusted Irvine movers at Republic know that adjusting to a new community can be challenging, even when it’s as beautiful and welcoming as Irvine!
Luckily, there’s a quick fix for turning your new house into your own home: preparing for and throwing a housewarming party. Housewarming traditions stretch back for centuries, and have always included elements like gift-giving and gathering friends and family. A housewarming brings together folks you enjoy and fills your house with happiness and warmth. Here’s our best tips for putting together a great housewarming.
1. Make your invitation clear. There are lots of ways to throw a housewarming—you might choose to put together a small, formal dinner party, or an all-afternoon potluck where friends can come and go as they please. There’s no one right way to host this party, but whatever you choose, make sure your invitation is clear about the social engagement you want.
2. Invite your new neighbors. A housewarming is a wonderful occasion to bring together your new neighbors and start to build those relationships. A mailed invitation to the addresses in your new home’s vicinity is a great place to start if you aren’t sure of your immediate neighbors’ names.
3. Provide a thoughtful spread. Even if you’re asking attendees to contribute a dish, be sure to provide a few basic dishes at a high enough quantity that every possible attendee could share in it. Your goal should be to have leftovers. While it’s not likely that every new neighbor, friend, and family member will be able to accept your invite, good hosting means you plan as though they will.
