How to throw a housewarming party on a budget

Did you just move into your new home and cannot wait to show it off to your friends and family? The hardest decision that most people are faced with when they want to throw a housewarming party is whether to go casual or fancy. Considering that you already have the stress of moving, you should consider throwing a housewarming party on a budget.Here are tips and party ideas for planning a housewarming party without spending tons of money:

  • Set a reasonable date

Wait a couple of months after you have moved before throwing a housewarming party. This gives you ample time to recover financially if you need to.

  • Decide on how much you are going to spend

The housewarming party theme plays a huge role in determining the budget. Spend only what you are comfortable with. Be realistic with the budget – there’s no need to get into debt just because of a single evening of fun.

  • Limit the guest list

A party doesn’t need to have many people for it to be fun. You should only invite a few friends and their partners over especially if you are working on a budget.

However, if your guest list doesn’t match your home’s small square footage, feel free to throw an open house. This means that people (including your new neighbors) can drop by anytime they like during a span of several hours

  • Keep the food and the décor simple

If you feel that cooking will be a lot of work for you, you can order some food and drink that can be kept at room temperature such as pre-cut fruits and other budget-friendly bites or pizza.

Get a few recyclable decorations from the dollar store to get the themed housewarming in order. Come up with other ways of improving the ambiance such as playing great music, lighting scented candles, and other things that boost party favours.

  • Play Games

Keep the guests entertained with amazing party games. These can be made up, purchased, or printable.

As for the host, make sure that you give your guests what they came for before they leave – a guided tour of the house. It’s okay if you still have a couple of unpacked boxes. The guests understand that you just moved in. Also, if you got any gifts, open them only after all the guests have left.
