Host an Easy Housewarming Party

Celebrate your new home with a wow-worthy housewarming that won't break the bank! These budget-friendly ideas are sure to make a lasting impression.

Buying a home, particularly your 1st house, is a big life milestone deserving of a celebration, but in today's current economic climate it's hard enough getting the keys to your own digs let alone throwing a big housewarming party to celebrate. In many cases, the expense of a big fancy party after closing on a house, not to mention the added stress of planning it, isn't a great option for new homeowners.

That being said - who needs the dressed up fancy party? There are so many great ways to show off your new place to family, friends and even new neighbors that won't leave you counting your change or stressing over appearances.

We've rounded up a few casual housewarming party ideas to celebrate - along with tips for both hosts and guests on what real expectations to set for the party.
