Tips or Trends Tuesday: Housewarming Parties

Today’s tips are inspired by my friend Barb and her new home. She requested an inspiration board for a housewarming party for her little farm here in Colorado. I thought I would keep it rustic and homey with the use of antique keys and mason jars with an outdoor picnic type feel. You can turn mason jars in to candle holders that can be hung from the trees surrounding your picnic area by using some heavy gauge wire and hang antique keys to accent and carry the theme through the space.

About.com has a helpful article with tips to ensure a successful housewarming party: http://entertaining.about.com/cs/holidays/a/housewarming.htm
