8 housewarming tips

Hosting a housewarming party has many steps and we’re going to help you plan your event. Take a look at our housewarming party ideas and tips to see if there’s anything you might need to include for your housewarming party. 

Put together a budget 

Before you start planning, one of the best things you can do is put together a budget. Plan how much you want to set aside for food, beverages and anything else you might like to include. Making a budget will give you an idea of what you need to organise and inform you of anything that is missing.

Find out who will be attending

Creating a guest list, or contacting your loved ones to see who’s available will help you determine how many people will be attending your housewarming party. Doing this will help you put together a budget and allow you to update the guest list as you go. 

Organise food and beverages

It wouldn’t be a housewarming party if there wasn’t food and beverages. Whether or not it’s a dry event, you can make the occasion memorable by organising delicious nibbles and refreshing drinks. See what ideas you can come up with that meets your budget, and your attendees will enjoy. 

Rearrange your space

Depending on how many people you invite, you may need to rearrange your space to accommodate. Ideally, you want to know what room you will be hosting your housewarming party in and create a space that has enough room. See what options are available and design your party around the space. 

Delegate tasks

Whether you choose to BYO food or if you need help setting up, ask for assistance and start delegating tasks to suit your needs. There’s no need for you to organise a housewarming party by yourself, and you can make the experience easier by asking for assistance.
