Home Tips: Housewarming Party Ideas

Spring is a popular time of year to make the big move.

Your friends are all probably excited to see your new place and a housewarming party is a great way to blow off some steam and start enjoying your new home. Plus, it will motivate you to finish unpacking those last few boxes! Here are some fun housewarming party theme ideas to get you moving.

Tapas and Sangria

Tapas are perfect for a housewarming party! They are fun, festive and give you a chance to put that new kitchen to good use.  You also get to impress your friends with your adventurous culinary skills. Pair your tapas with some yummy homemade sangria, or make it a wine tasting event with wines from different parts of the world. To keep it classy, keep decorations to a minimum but make sure to break out some fun, patterned tapas plates and your best wine glasses!

Grill and Chill

A grill and chill party is a great option if you’re excited to spend some time in your new backyard. Keep the menu simple with some good old hotdogs and hamburgers, but add some excitement with a “gourmet” toppings bar including pimento cheese, guacamole, bacon, macaroni and cheese, and any other toppings you love! For drinks, fill a wheelbarrow full of ice to keep beers cold and make sure you have some fresh lemonade! Top the night off with a create your own s’mores bar for dessert!

Tropical Delight

Spring gets people in the mood for vacation, so why not give your friends a mini-vacation at your housewarming party! A tropical housewarming party theme is especially great if you have a pool at your new home. Decorate with pineapples, tiki torches and some pretty flowers. For the menu, try some Hawaiian pork sliders, pineapple cocktails, and mini key lime pies for dessert!
