Grand Opening Housewarming Party Ideas

Owning a new home is a great accomplishment and should be celebrated with family and friends. We all stride to better ourselves and having a housewarming party allows one to show off that you developed into a responsible person.  The housewarming party is an open invitation to come and see your new house, backyard, and its decor.  This is a personal grand opening which will have people coming throughout the day. So make it fun and enjoy the company.

Tips on making your housewarming party a success.

  1. Set a time frame for the grand opening – In the invitation let them know the event goes from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm and they are welcome to come anytime.  This way people can come, see the house, visit, and leave.  By setting a start and end time will allow you control the party and the expenses.
  2. Cater food if possible – This allows you to mingle with your guests and show off your house.
  3. Keep food simple – This isn’t a sit down party it is more about socializing and mingling.  Keep the food portable and easy to plate.
  4. Provide spill proof cups for kids.
  5. Avoid red wine – New carpeting is best ruined by the home owner, not the guest.
  6. Hire entertainment to keep family and friend entertained.
  7. Layout family pictures so guests have something to reminisce about – This gives everyone a chance to talk about family present and past.
  8. Strategically place snacks in different parts of the house – This will keep people mingling and allows everyone to enjoy the house as much as you do.
  9. Place waste receptacles in visible locations – It’s a party and there’s going to be trash, make it easy for guests to toss out garbage.
  10. Avoid food with sauces – Best to vacuum up crumbs then having to hire a carpet cleaning company.
  11. Avoid tuning on TV – The party is about your house and family, not the pendent race that is occurring.
  12. Background music is great for setting up the party, but become annoying when guest arrive – Turn off the music.
  13. Include detailed map and contact information on invitation – Make it easy for your guests to find your new house.
  14. Make a thank you list – Too often at the end of the party you cannot remember who brought a bottle of wine or gave you that special housewarming gift.  Use a notepad to quickly write down names and a quick description of the present.  When you send out thank you notes you can thank them for the specific housewarming gift.
  15. Send out thank you notes – Thanking people for coming to your party will insure that your next event will get a response from them.

Grand Opening Food Ideas for Vendors

A vendor is a business associate who will be working with your company and by developing a close relationship will make it easier to do business with. Provide a special vendor grand opening, typically done after store hours or before the store officially opens and allows vendors the opportunity to view the store prior to customers and see their product displays and how products will be marked throughout the store.

A vendor grand opening is a business casual event and a formal meal is not required. However, business professionals would enjoy a spread of hot horderves and beverages. Consider your typical hot finger food options.

  • Hot wings
  • Little hot dogs
  • Bagel bites
  • Little tacos
  • Chicken fingers

But don’t forget the simple horderves like

  • Crackers
  • Cheese
  • Nuts
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Veggies & Dip
  • Chips
  • Pretzels

Provide silverware, napkin, plates, and cups.  Don’t go cheap on the accessories, purchase inexpensive silverware, plates, and real glass cups.  The look alone will increase the presentation 100% by removing paper products and Styrofoam products.

If catering the event, hire a professional wait staff to serve horderves and drinks.  This will allow staff to mingle with vendors and keep clean up to a minimal.  Strategically place recycle bins and trash receptacles in highly visible locations while reducing trash from being discarded among the store products. The goal of the vendor grand opening is to create a warm, friendly atmosphere where the store is the focus and the food and beverage is there to subdue hunger.

Grand Opening Food Ideas for Employees

I have attended many grand openings and feeding guest, vendors, and employees varies from each grand opening event.  Let’s first consider the employees working the grand opening.

Feeding the Employees

The preparation for a grand opening starts hours before the doors open and will continue throughout the day.  So it is critical that staff be fed and given regular breaks to insure they have enough energy and keep their enthusiasm at peak levels.  Assign an individual to oversee the employee break room is stock with food, beverages and is neat.

The employees are the troops that will make your grand opening a success, so invest some time and money into making them part of the grand opening celebration. Here are some grand opening food ideas for employees.

  • Beverages – Fresh coffee, cold bottled water and soda
  • Morning break – Donuts, coffeecake
  • Lunch – Pizza, Catered meals or gourmet sandwiches
  • Afternoon – Fresh fruit
  • Night Crew – Warm meal, cookies and cakes

Keep in mind some of the managers and employees will be working all day and having a good meal in them will prevent mood swings from occurring.  Don’t make the grand opening all about a business opening, but instead a joint venture between employees and the company to make a successful business.  Make good will with employees, start at the grand opening.
