Tips for Throwing the Perfect Housewarming Party in Los Cabos
Found a dream property in Los Cabos? Managed to secure it and ward off the interest of any competing buyers? That’s amazing news, and certainly a reason to celebrate. What better way to start life in your new home than with a housewarming party?
Here are the best ways to make sure you plan an awesome housewarming party along with great Cabo homes for entertainers.
Consider throwing a party with a theme.
Do take care with this tip! Not everyone is going to feel comfortable attending a themed party, especially if the theme involves dressing up in costumes or face painting. This applies to an even greater degree if you are going to be inviting new neighbors to your party.
An example of a theme that could keep everyone happy is: ‘bring food inspired by a country of your choice’. This way, nobody has to risk the embarrassment of dressing up in costumes! You might also discover some pretty awesome food that you haven’t ever tried before.
Keep decorations to a minimum.
Although you might be tempted to throw a party full of expensive and elaborate decorations, be aware that your family and friends will be interested in seeing your new place. As such, try to avoid covering the home with decorations that will obscure the views of your new digs.
Keep rooms relatively tidy and allow plenty of space for your housewarming party guests to appreciate your new home!
How to approach your guest list.
It’s a good rule of thumb to stick to nearby neighbors only. To avoid offending anyone, consider sending invites to everyone in your new street (as long as you don’t live in a very long street!).
Of course, you will want to invite family and friends too. This is a celebration of your new home and a chance to get to know some of your new neighbors – so be thoughtful about the people you choose to invite.
Make a checklist of things to remember on the day.
The day of your housewarming party is going to be hectic! Give yourself the best chance of making a good impression by writing down some of the key points to remember before the event, such as:
- Open and tidy bathrooms so they are ready for guests to use
- Light scented candles around the home
- Unique tableware
- Set up a playlist for background music
Make the party a reflection of who you are.
Do you love gardening? Maybe you’re a big sports fan that loves nothing more than passing time watching games on the big screen?
Make your favorite part of the home your party’s focal point. Lead your guests out into the garden to enjoy some drinks al fresco, or gather everyone in the home cinema to have snacks in front of the big game.
Don’t stress about entertainment.
The main reason you are gathering friends, family and neighbors at your new home is to give everyone a chance to meet each other.
Of course, you want to show off your new home in a flattering light, but just giving everyone a chance to chat and enjoy some snacks is usually more than enough.
