What better way to unwind after all the stress of moving and settling into a new house than to have a housewarming party? It doesn’t matter if it’s going to be a large shindig or small party, a fancy dinner or a casual barbecue. Whatever the plan, a housewarming party is a fantastic way to show off your new home.

After the cost of moving, you might not want to spend too much on your party. The good news is you can have a housewarming party on a budget. There are no rules or guidelines as to what a housewarming should look like, so work with your space, time, and budget — just ensure you and your guests have fun. Use the tips below as a guide for throwing a housewarming party in your new home without putting a dent in your pocket.

Make a Budget

The first thing to do is to figure out how much you want to spend. You do not have to go overboard financially to throw a great party; work with whatever amount you have available.

Set a Reasonable Date

Choose a date and time that’s comfortable for you — financially and mentally. After the stress of moving and settling in, give yourself enough time to recover before hosting friends and family.

Cap Your Guest List

When there is a budget constraint, limit the number of guests you invite. Restricting guests to your closest friends, your immediate family, and your new neighbors will help you keep costs down especially when it comes to providing food and beverages for a crowd.

Utilize Free Invitations

There are multiple free invite options available for you to use, but a simple Facebook or WhatsApp message will do. Request RSVPs from your guest so you can prepare for the number of people attending.

Skip the Decorations

The purpose of your housewarming party is to show off your new home. You do not necessarily have to use other forms of decorations. If you intend to decorate anyway, buy decorations that serve you after the housewarming such as a string of festive fairy lights or tiki lamps for your patio.

Throwing a housewarming party on a budget means inviting people over to your place to have fun with what you have available. Ensure you have fun while at it. Your agent is an excellent resource for local specialty shops to find unique party décor or local foods to try.
