How to throw a fun party??

Tomorrow Beth and I are hosting a "House-Warming Party" (where did the term "House-Warming" come from?!)

Does anyone else ever get that "I'm hosting a party and I want it to go really well but what happens if it's a disaster" feeling? Like half really excited, but half terrified...

Well I reckon I am in that place. So far I feel pretty prepared though. I've:

  • Cleaned bathroom
  • Swept floors
  • Hoovered everywhere
  • Dusted
  • Stocked up on loo roll
  • Bought wine and crackers
I'm thinking I should potentially make a party play list...any suggestions of what it should include?

Is there anything glaringly obvious (or not obvious) that I have forgotten to do?


  1. According to Wiki: "The term "housewarming" is descended literally from the act of warming a new house, in the days before central heating. Each guest would bring firewood, and build fires in all the available fireplaces, offering firewood as a gift"

    Party Tip: Pick a flower and stick it in the bathroom in a jar :) xx

  2. SMILE :D and play cool music in the background
