Decoration Ideas For a Housewarming Party

Come Party With Me: Half-Birthday Housewarming — The Look

The decorations for my half-birthday housewarming will be kept to a minimum because it's a time for friends to check out my new living space. I don't want to clutter it with gaudy balloons and flowing streamers. Instead, I'll create a party atmosphere with glowing lights, lots of candles, and fresh Spring flowers arranged in low vases. I'll serve the feast of Italian appetizers on different-shaped white plates and wooden boards.

The cupcakes will go in my cupcake tower and the cocktail will be poured in my collection of Champagne coupes. The walls are bare, but I've made an inspiration board. To encourage guests to add their ideas, I'll cover a large portion of an accessible wall with butcher paper. A bowl full of good markers will sit next to the paper and I'll ask everyone to tell me how I should decorate!
