Welcome to the Neighborhood

Once you’re all moved into your brand new Valencia home, a housewarming party is an absolute must. And these are some of our favorite ways to take the celebration to the next level.


When it comes to feeding your guests, things can get a little pricey. For a more cost-effective way to make sure there’s enough to go around, try a potluck for the theme of your housewarming party. Nothing makes a new house feel like home more than special family recipes on the dining table—and maybe you’ll find a new favorite!


If you’re looking for a spin on your classic potluck, go for a stock-the-bar theme. Gather supplies to serve your favorite cocktail as a staple and create a simple spread of hors d’oeuvres. Then have your guests bring the liquor for their favorite cocktail recipes. Not only do you get to stock the bar at your new house, but you also get to try some delicious drinks with friends.


We all know that house tours are essential at a housewarming party, so why not make a game of it? Sending your guests on a scavenger hunt allows you to give an exciting house tour without doing any of the talking. Put together a list of unique items and décor around your house and have guests go around and write down where they find them.


Your big night will be filled with your closest friends and loved ones, and you’ll want to thank them for helping make your new house feel like home. One of our favorite housewarming favors are “spare key” cookies. Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe, a key-shaped cookie cutter and icing to create these cute treats. It’s a sure way to make guests feel they are always welcome back!


You only get to formally warm your house up once, so make sure to do it the right way with these fun and easy housewarming party ideas.
