Ideas for housewarming invitations

As with any other occasion, the wording and design of housewarming invitations should reflect the type of housewarming party that you intend to offer. In a way, housewarming parties can also act as an icebreaker between you and your neighbours. Make sure then, that you have at least one or two activities prepared that could allow everyone to mingle and get to know each other well.

Housewarming Invitations: Wordings

Regardless of whether you are using informal or formal language to invite friends, family and neighbours over to your home, it is very important that you invite them in a friendly or graciously welcoming manner. You want to make it clear that you value every guest’s presence.

Housewarming invitations: Design

If you have a theme for your party, the design of your invitations should definitely reflect it. If you are holding a housewarming party in summer, for instance, having a cowboy or rodeo-themed gathering could be fun. If this were the theme that you choose, it would not be amiss to add some horses, cowboy hats and bulls, and use brown shades for your housewarming cards.

Now that you have your invitations printed out, make sure that you send them at least one week prior to the date of your party. This will hopefully give your guests enough time to arrange their schedule and make time for your gathering. And now, it is time to concentrate on other aspects of your party. Menu The menu will depend on three things: the theme of your party, what time it will take place and your budget. If you were keeping the original rodeo-themed party, it would be safe to say that dishes like grilled barbecues, burgers and coleslaw are likely to be expected instead of a multi-course gourmet meal. Time You also need to consider the time of your party. Does it coincide with breakfast, lunch or dinner? If it is the same time that people usually take any of the major meals for the day, you need to prepare something quite fulfilling. If, however, you were holding your party any time in between those meals, then something light would do. This can be anything from appetisers, amuse bouche, snacks and desserts. Budget As for your budget, consider first how many guests are likely to attend. It is best to provide simpler fare that can make everyone feel deliciously full rather than serve elaborate dishes that will still leave your guests starving.
