There’s a lot that goes into moving, from packing and transporting with local movers in Malvern to settling into your new environment. Moving to a new town or neighborhood is always stressful, but even more so when you don’t know anyone. To take some of the stress out of the experience, here are some of our tips for making your new neighborhood and community feel like home.
Throw a Housewarming Party
Throwing a housewarming party is an excellent way to meet new neighbors after moving into a new area. After settling in with the help of our local movers in Berwyn, take a walk around the neighborhood inviting your neighbors over for an open-house-style housewarming party. You can knock on their doors or leave a small invitation in the mailbox.
During the time of your open-house housewarming, you can serve light refreshments, take your neighbor’s on a house tour, play board games, and use this time to start building relationships.
Host A Dinner Party
Once you feel comfortable with one or two sets of neighbors, consider inviting them over for a dinner party. Whether you’re getting takeout, grilling on the patio, or serving a home-cooked meal, it’s an excellent way to cement a friendship. Be sure to consider any dietary restrictions ahead of time.
Arrange A Kids or Puppy Playdate
For those with children or dogs, scheduling a playdate or meet-up allows you the opportunity to bond with your new neighbors. For children, meeting other children around their age in the neighborhood can help ease the transition into a new location. This is especially beneficial if you move prior to the start of the school year, so your child has some familiar faces with them in their classroom.
Join Local Community Social Media Groups
Many neighborhoods and communities organize social media groups on a variety of platforms to connect residents of the same area. These groups are a great way to introduce yourself to the community, get answers to any questions, and find activities to get involved with.
