Throw a memorable house warming party by organizing tours
Organize tours of your new home is definitely one of the things to do after you move. This can be the main attraction. So, make sure you have your space ready for showing.
- But, don’t forget that you’re the host of your party. So, answer the door, welcome your guests, and make them feel comfortable.

- Show some magical transformation. Prepare the “before” picture outside each room.

Don’t expect gifts when you throw a memorable house warming party. Even though gifts are customary, you should never expect them. Because of the good wishes of your friends and family should be enough.
There is no need for special party decorations. Because you don’t want to detract from the features of your new home. Some floral arrangements will be more than enough. When it comes to decoration it’s recommendable to go conservative and affordable. Guests don’t want to see 50+ balloons, they want to see your home. It’s better to invest in something that spruces up your home to make it feel like a celebration. Like the Spotify playlist. It doesn’t have to blare throughout the house, but light music makes a party much more comfortable.

Your neighbors will like you for you. And throwing a housewarming party is a good start. You’ll show them that you are taking time out of your life to get to know them. So, just relax and remember to have fun.
