How to have a great housewarming party


The most important element is FOOD! Food, glorious food! Indeed, we had a wonderful selection of food at Cheryl's housewarming party last Saturday.


 
Top (left to right): A chunk of apple pie with vanilla ice-cream; melted chocolate & marshmallows
 

Bottom (left to right): Pickled baby cucumbers (since April 2011); a giant bottle of apple cider


 
Top: Rainbow cake with Nutella frosting; rice with feta cheese dressing & baby tomatoes
 

Bottom: Beef meatloaf

There are much more food without photos: Doritos, cheese fondue, mashed potatoes, pizza, salad, fortune cookies, lemonade with mint leaves, ice-cream, etc.


******************************

Not forgetting these too:
  • The crowd - Great friends make a big difference to the atmosphere. The more the merrier. In this case, too many cooks don't really spoil the broth.
  • The music - Not too punk or rock, not too slow either. It all depends on the mood of you want to set.
  • The games - Good to have boardgames to kill time and to keep your guests away from stuffing themselves with too much food. :P
  • The house - Give your guests a good map. You won't want them to end up in Holland. Make sure your house is de-cluttered too. You gotta make space for your guests to sit or just stand around.
  • Disposable plates, forks and spoons, cups - Prepare in abundance. However, if you're against using too much of these green-unfriendly disposable stuff, you might want to remind your guests beforehand not to throw away their plates and cups too frequently.
  • Dustbins - Do prepare a few and put them at prominent places, not just under the sink in the kitchen.
  • Tissue paper - This is a must-have item. Prepare in abundance as well.

******************************

Finally, a word of caution. Be prepared to become dead tired at the end of everything. :P
