The decision to move to a new neighborhood comes with a lot of changes in your life. The people you were used to are no longer around you. You have no option than to get to know your new neighbors despite the fact that there’s limited time to meet them. In most cases, people don’t consider meeting new neighbors as a priority once they’ve moved to a new neighborhood. Well, this could be your thoughts, but knowing your neighbors will make you feel more settled and at peace in the new home.
Planning a party is a great way to get to meet and know your new neighbors. Of course, this is the last thing you might consider doing but remember you don’t know anyone around. So, how do you go about the housewarming party?
Who should you invite in the Housewarming Party?
Start by considering your circumstance first. If there are a few friends around your new neighborhood, let them be part of your housewarming party. The point is to start with friends and any other person whom you know. Probably you haven’t moved far from your previous home. Invite some of your old friends or neighbors. Celebrate with them your new home.
If you moved to a new area where there’s no one you know around, don’t worry. Be bold to invite some of your coworkers at your new place of work. Since you want to meet and interact with your new neighbors, you should also pass an invitation around the neighborhood. How about you deliver the invitation with some cookies? Think about it. You can request some of them to spread the word. Make sure they see you in person.
Should you use a formal invitation?
What do you think about this question? Since this is not a formal gathering, you don’t need to deliver or send formal invitations. It’s a social gathering aimed at meeting your new neighbors. You can use a simple note to pass the message. However, as mentioned, deliver it yourself if possible. Neighbors are more likely to come if they’ve seen you in person rather than some id delivering the invitation.
Do you need to Decorate?
Don’t spend time and money trying to transform your living space for the housewarming party. The most important thing is to make sure there’s plenty of ambient lighting, some music to set the mood, and enough sitting space.
Don’t forget to go big on your cooking skills. It’s important that everyone enjoys the food. Throwing a housewarming party might seem like a huge task, but it won’t need much as compared to other parties. All you need is knowing the people to invite, decorating your room, and choosing the right food to serve.
