Housewarming Party: The Best Arrangement That You Can Do
Have you just moved into a brand new apartment with your partner, your dog, or your goldfish? It is therefore customary for you to organize the traditional housewarming party. An evening where all your closest friends will drink, tell you that your apartment is really “super cool”, but above all, offer you a multitude of gifts.
Have you never organized a housewarming party? Is this your first time? So here are some tips for optimal organization. You can use the personalised change of address cards there.
Did you know: housewarming is a medieval tradition. When the construction of a house was finished, the new owners invited everyone who participated in the project to a meal in order to thank them. The rack, a metal rod on which the pots were stored, was the last element of the house to be installed above the fireplace.
Don’t invite anyone.
First point on which you must absolutely look: your guest list. Watch out for casting errors. For your housewarming evening, take some time to reflect on your guest list.
If you invite Paul, don’t forget he’s scrambled with Ana. So that this guest list does not become a headache for you, do not hesitate to make choices. After all, you don’t have to invite everyone.
And then, it’s just a simple housewarming party. Besides, unless you move into a superb 200 square meters, you will be obliged not to invite everyone. Imagine: 70 people in your little 20 square meters. Everyone would step on it and you would spend the evening policing.
Tip: don’t forget to invite the people who helped you during your move / move in priority – that’s the least.
Then think about the date when you would like to organize this housewarming party. Tonight? Next week? In a month? If you don’t know which day to organize this event, ask your friends: what are the dates that would suit them? Try to make sure that everyone can be present while leaving you a certain amount of time to be able to prepare this evening with a minute.
If you don’t want to ask all your friends one by one about their preferred date: create a Doodle. This online platform will allow you to interview all your friends simultaneously by offering them different dates. The ideal is to fix the day of your housewarming at least three weeks in advance in order to give you time to make all the preparations. The best is also that the date of your rack is not too close to that of your move so that you have had time to settle down in your new “home”.
How to invite your friends?
A few years ago, invitations were made by phone (by mail a few decades ago.). Today, we can easily create a “rack and pinion” event on social networks such as Facebook or notify participants by email, or organize a “Doodle” type schedule. Then you can also go for the house warming party invite there.
So do not hesitate to send this invitation a few weeks before D-Day and above all to raise your guests once or twice by giving them practical information.
