Now that you moved into your amazing Judd Builders home you can enjoy the benefits of living in a wonderful planned community. But how should you celebrate the big move? Well you could throw a housewarming party if you’ve just moved in or you could just throw a regular house party to reconnect with your neighbors, friends, and family. Here are seven tips to help you entertain in you new Judd home!
1. Prepare in Advance
Don’t do everything the day of your party. Instead, prepare everything you can in advance, so the day of you can enjoy the party as much as your guests. Shopping, cleaning, and cooking is a recipe for one stressful day. Organize a week in advance and plan out a schedule so you won’t get too overwhelmed. Clean the house one day, go grocery shopping the next day, and cook the day before the party and everything will go as planned.
2. Know Your Limits
Not only do you need to know you limits when hosting a party, you need to know the limits of your house! Don’t invite too many people where you can’t accommodate for them. Whether it’s not enough space in the house or you can’t make enough food, know you limits and don’t stress yourself out by inviting too many guests to your party.
3. Don’t Go too Crazy over Cleaning
It’s understandable that you’ll want to clean your house before the party, but don’t go overboard and clean everything. All you really have to do is vacuum, dust, and clean the bathrooms and your house will be ready for your party. Also, if you have a lot of papers and clutter lying around on counters, gather it up and put it in a bin in your bedroom.
4. Make a Playlist
Music can create a perfect party atmosphere, so make a playlist in advance for your house party. Start off with mellow music and continually build it up and bring it back down for the right balance of music that your guests will enjoy.
5. Serve Simple Foods
Don’t try to make a brand new recipe for your party. Instead stick to recipes you’ve made before and are simple to make. It will be less stressful and you’ll be more at ease knowing that the recipes taste delicious.
6. Ask for Help
Whether it’s help from your family or friends, don’t be afraid to ask for help. They can help before, during, and after the party taking some of the load off your shoulders. Also, if your guests offer to bring anything like desserts, appetizers, or sides, say yes! You don’t have to do everything yourself!
7. Enjoy the Time with Your Guests
Don’t forget about the reason you’re throwing a party. Enjoy the time with your guests and don’t fret over imperfections. Most likely your guests won’t care or even notice any imperfections because they’re too busy having fun and spending time with everyone.
