Since guests will be walking about and inspecting your home during your housewarming party, this is an ideal situation for casual, finger foods. Serve different choices in each room. Then, as they discover your rooms, there will be edible surprises as well.
Do not expect gifts. Although gifts are customary, they should never be expected. The good wishes of your friends should be enough.
Special party decorations are unnecessary. You don't want to detract from the features of your new home. A few cheery floral arrangements will be more than enough to gild the lily.
