What better way to celebrate your new home than during the most wonderful time of the year?

You’ve finally finished with the hustle and bustle of moving into your new home—just in time for the holidays. You want to show off your home while also getting in the holiday spirit, but you’re not sure what route to take. Santa’s helpers are here to help! Your friends at Encore Realty have shared their favorite ways to celebrate the holidays in a new home.

1. Have a holiday housewarming

What’s better than a housewarming? A holiday-themed housewarming! Invite family and friends over to see your new home while also spreading holiday cheer. This might require just a bit more decorating around the house, but tis the season after all. With everyone in the holiday spirit, your guests might even surprise you with extra special gifts.

2. Potluck party

By the time you’ve finally settled in your home, hosting a party might be the last thing you have energy for. Hosting a potluck is the perfect way to hide your laziness while also getting your family and friends to contribute to the party in a fun and festive way. The purpose of the potluck is for each guest to bring a food or beverage item. Make it holiday themed and you have yourself a party! You can provide some eggnog and Christmas carols and let your guests share in the excitement of your new home and holiday season with a fully stocked party.

3. Host a Neighborhood Holiday Party

Throwing a party for the neighborhood is the perfect way to break the ice and get to know your new neighbors. Consider planning a Secret Santa to countdown to the party or include other holiday games such as Name That Christmas Carol or holiday-themed charades. The holidays are the perfect excuse to open up your home to your neighbors and get you involved with your new community quickly.

4. Decorate the outside of your house

While this might put added pressure on you as you complete your home, it is a surefire way to let others know that you’ve officially arrived in town. All you’ll need are some lights around the trim of your house and perhaps a reindeer or two to make your house come alive. This would make a great opportunity for neighbors to introduce themselves, as there is no better way to make your house seem inviting than holiday decorations.

The holidays are for bringing people together to share in the celebration. Moving into a new home is the perfect complement for the holidays by giving you even more reasons to celebrate. Whether you’re meeting new neighbors or bringing family and friends together, break in your new home this holiday season.
