I occasionally love to hop on here and share more personal, lifestyle photos with my readers. I'm a little late with getting this post up, but that's just life these days. Pretty sure I washed the same load of clothes more than once today...#momlife.
Our close friends and family put together the most adorable and perfect housewarming party for us last month. I could not have asked for a more beautiful and cozy gathering with our loved ones.
From the details of simple, fresh flowers and cozy cookies that tasted amazing, to having our house blessed by our priest and having mimosas to pass around, it was perfect.
Owning your first home is so exciting and so rewarding. You feel like you're truly adulting (HA) and the excitement of that "new home" emotion lasts for a really long time. And of course, you really want to show those you love (especially when it's all clean!). If you're about to embark on a journey of owning your first home, then here's a big congrats to you! Here's also some fun inspiration for a "Home Sweet Home" housewarming party. We kept our guest list simple and didn't do anything overboard. I wasn't in charge of anything and I am so grateful of that! It was nice to sit back and get somewhat surprised over all of the simple details that were so perfect and quaint. There's not a thing I would have changed!
I wasn't the best at getting pictures with our guests, but we are so grateful to everyone who joined us and came visit our cozy little home. We are especially grateful to my mom, sister in laws and my dear best friend for hosting this beautiful party for us. And we are so grateful for our wonderful priest and friend who came to bless our home and visit with us. That was perhaps the most special part of the day.
If you're planning a housewarming party, keep it simple and small. Make it cozy and don't feel the need to go over the top. Simple finger foods, decadent desserts and good company (and wine) are all you truly need.
