You've just moved into a new home, and you want to celebrate with some friends and family. So, you're hosting a housewarming party, but you want to do something a bit different from the norm. Instead of everyone sitting around sipping on drinks and nibbling on food, you want to create a housewarming party that celebrates your new home and is enjoyable for the whole crowd.
If you're debating how to celebrate your new home, here are some ideas that are worth trying:
A themed dinner party
One excellent way to invite guests to your home is through a dinner party. Here, you will cook for everyone, making them all sit around your new dining table to enjoy the food from your new kitchen. It's a fantastic experience for the whole group as they can sit and mingle with one another all night long - while also enjoying great food.
A dinner party is a great idea on its own, but you can take it to a new level by making it themed. Pick a cuisine or another type of theme to base your dinner party around and it will all be more amusing and exciting for everyone. Especially if you make them come dressed according to the theme!
Another food-related housewarming party idea, but one that's a bit more laid back and relaxed. Here, everyone comes over and enjoys some delicious afternoon tea with you. You can make all the cute little sandwiches, get your own thing to display them on, and maybe even order some small baked treats as well.
Personally, this is a great idea if you just have a small housewarming party with some close friends or family members. It's nice for everyone to relax and be chilled in your new home, and it's a great chance to just chat and catch up with anyone you haven't seen for a while.
Murder mystery party
Yep, definitely a change of pace from the other two, but a fantastic idea for a housewarming party. You can buy a murder mystery game that gives you a box full of instructions on how to go about everything. Inside, you get everything from a host guide to evidence packs, character booklets, and even costume suggestions.
Effectively, the aim of the game is to roleplay and find out which one of your guests is the murderer. Depending on the game you buy, there will be a plot to follow. It's a brilliant interactive housewarming party idea, and also a fantastic chance to show off many areas of your home! Encourage your guests to dress up as well, and it can be an entertaining experience that the whole family will appreciate.
Sick and tired of typical housewarming parties where everyone is sat in the living room making small talk? All three of these ideas give you something different to consider, meaning your housewarming party will be one that people actually enjoy. Have a look through each of them again, and pick whichever one you like the most. Or, you could use two of them - one for a party with your family, and one for your friends!
