The transition of moving means much more than just packing, transit, and unpacking. At Priority, our packers and movers have helped thousands of families just like yours have a happy and healthy transition when moving out of state. Lots of our clients have reflected on the need to say goodbye to their old community, and greet their new neighbors. A housewarming party can be a great opportunity to get to know your new neighbors and friends.
Right after moving, you might feel reluctant to throw a housewarming party, because the process of moving can feel expensive and disruptive. When you use unpacking, assembly, and installation services from Priority, your new house will feel like a home in no time. And because our services are economical, you won’t break the bank in accessing the services you need to have a stress-free residential move.
If you don’t know many folks in your new community, a housewarming party is a great opportunity to bring everyone together in a comfortable atmosphere. Try:
A written invitation. You might know your neighbors’ addresses, but not their names, so addressing a written invitation to “residents of” or “our new neighbors at” the houses on your block means they’ll receive the invitation. A written invitation also feels more personable and can set the tone for great neighborly interactions.
A simple spread. You don’t need to break your budget to impress your new neighbors and friends. In fact, sticking to crowd-pleasers and family favorites is a sure bet to making sure that your attendees will find something they like at your party. So don’t worry about having a fancy menu– just make sure that kids (from age 2 to 92) can find something they’ll like to eat.
Specifying “your presence, not your presents!” Since you don’t know the folks you’ll be inviting, you might feel uncomfortable throwing a housewarming party since tradition dictates that attendees would bring a gift for your new home. Feel free to specify in your invitation that gifts are not expected, and that this is just a social invitation to get to know each other. You’ll feel more comfortable, and your guests will appreciate the clarity.
If you’re getting ready to move out of state, you might be stressed about your lengthy to-do list. Priority can help you manage every item on your list so that you can focus on the health and happiness of your family, and transitioning to your new home and community.
