House warming parties are great with very casual and simple themes.

Your guests are coming to the party to see your house and if you hide your house behind too much decoration, the party will not be of any use. Keep the decoration to minimum. Get a house warming party banner for the house entrance, light some candles on the tables and decorate the vases with flowers and now you are all set with the decoration.
5. House tours
