    Set a date and invite guests to the party

    The first thing to do when preparing a moving away party is to set a date. Many people host a party very close to the moving date, but it can vary.

Secondly, make a list of guests. This is important so you know how much food and drinks you will need, how many utensils and plates you have to prepare. If you will have a lot of guests, make a spreadsheet and write names of families, friends, colleagues, etc. This way you won’t forget anyone.

    Pick a theme for the party and activities you will have

    Having a theme for the party can be helpful since you will know what kind of decorations to use, what activities to prepare. You can organize a theme according to your new destination.

They want to give you something you will need when you relocate. This is all up to you. You can always inform them that there is a ‘no gift’ policy and that you don’t want this for your moving away party. Maybe you don’t want to overload your already packed home. On the other hand, some people love gifts especially when they get something that they can use when they relocate.

This is your choice so make a decision and indicate it in your invitation.
