Your guide to holding a housewarming party!
With spring fast approaching, many of you will be moving into your new Llanmoor home. Such an exciting time certainly calls for a celebration.
A housewarming party is a great way of showing off your new place to friends and family, and getting to know the neighbours!
This needn't be a stressful process and should be enjoyable for you as well as those you invite. The three main things to consider are the food, drink and decoration.
Food and Drink
While a more intimate gathering might lend itself well to a two or three course sit- down meal, an all you can eat buffet is a great way to cater for all tastes and numbers, while keeping your stress levels to a minimum!
Many supermarkets have delicious looking party food which will go down a treat with the fussiest eaters!
Alternatively show off the domestic goddess within you and rustle up your own sandwiches, cheese sticks, kebabs, pastries and desserts! Check out BBC Good Food for some great ideas.
The kids will love giving you a helping hand to make these!

Don't forget to provide both soft and alcoholic drinks...
Why not make some refreshing lemonade? Perfect for a garden party on a sunny day!
Don't forget the wine; you'll probably need more than you think!
Why not take the opportunity to make your new home look really inviting with bunting, balloons and flowers?
Bunting is still a really popular way to give your house that homely charm. It can be very expensive to buy, so why not give the kids something to do and get them making some?
