One of our clients who just purchased a home in Sonoma County shared a story of how their family celebrates this special event and thought you might want to add this to your family tradition. First, it has to be a big surprise. The new home owner knows it’s coming, but doesn’t know when. Their family might even delay the celebration a few months after they moved in. This just adds to the element of surprise and the anticipation mounts for everyone! The big day arrives. Relatives, friends and new neighbors meet at a nearby parking lot with their cars and trucks loaded to the brim with all party supplies.
The food has to be great, no hot dogs, please, only great food along with drinks, tables, chairs, plates and napkins. Next, they caravan to the new home and about 1 block from the house they begin honking their horns to let everyone know the they are coming and the fun is about to begin. They continue honking up the driveway. By now the new homeowner knows they have not been forgotten and the day is finally here. The tables are set up , the food displayed and the drinks are flowing. They have a great time celebrating, showing off their new home and re-telling how they fell in love with it. The party lasts about 2 hours. All the party happenings are cleaned up, put back into the vehicles and the home is left spotless. Do you have a story to share?
