Custom Homes: Throwing the Ultimate Housewarming Party
At Woodcastle Homes Management Inc., we love building custom homes because there is nothing better than watching our clients excitedly move into their new house. If you recently moved into one of our custom homes or have plans to invest in new construction in the future, you’re going to want to celebrate the completion of your house with a housewarming party. Here are a few tips for throwing a memorable event:
- Cover the basics –Plan your party a few weeks ahead of time and send out invitations to your guest list. While you probably want to invite your family and friends, consider sending an invite to any of your neighbors you recently met. While you don’t necessarily have to plan out activities for our gathering, give some thought to the menu and overall flow of the celebration beforehand.
- Set aside a place for gifts—Some of the people who attend your housewarming party may bring a gift along with them. To ensure your gifts don’t get misplaced or broken, set up a small table for people to put them on as they walk in the door or set aside a small space where these presents can go until you get a chance to open them.
- Plan for tours—People enjoy looking at custom homes, so there’s a good chance the people you invite to your housewarming party are going to want to see your home. Even if you have a few unpacked boxes hanging around, make sure your home is clean and presentable for your party, so you can give tours confidently throughout the evening.
