Want To Host House Warming Party On A Budget? Here Are Some Tips For You
We think over and over again about the grand house-warming party we should throw as soon as the purchase process is over. Becoming a property owner would be nothing less than a big achievement and we would like our loved ones to witness the start of our lives in a new home. Since we are still in the planning process, not much thought is given to the fact that a grand house-warming ceremony would require a grand spending of money, too—something you may not have in plenty when you are done turning the dream into reality. In light of that fact, we may have to go wisely to make sure we are not monetarily burdened since we spent all that the money that was left in throwing the house-warming party.
How should you go about it, then?
Sit and write
Last-minute preparations or hasty planning could lead to unnecessary expenses. The idea to hold the house-warming party must be a well-thought-of plan, quite like your home buying plan. Make your calculations and arrive at a fixed amount which you must be spending on hosting the party. Do everything to stick to the plan. The ceremony must be done using your own finances and not outside help. You have already borrowed enough money to make the purchase.
Edit the guest list
You are right in thinking that you should host all your acquaintance on this happy occasion. Now, the larger the party, the higher the expense. In light of the fact that you are financially hard pressed at this juncture, edit the guest list. At a later stage when your financial condition improves, you could hold another party in which you could invite the reaming of your guests. Everyone is aware of the financial pressure a buyer faces. Those who are invited later are not going to mind. They are, after all, your friends.
Trim the menu
By limiting the guest list, you would substantiality save money on the cost that you would have to incur in arranging the lunch/dinner party. Additionally, you could bring down the number of food items you are going to serve on the occasion. This could also be effective in cutting costs. In case the option to limit the number of guests is something you are not willing to explore, you could go for high tea rather than lunch/dinner.
