Historically, housewarming parties were held for homes that lacked central heating, but go ahead and add a little figurative warmth to your starter pad. Once you’ve purchased the stemware and poured the wine, it’s time to invite the guests.
There’s no place like home—specifically, yours. So choose a design that reflects your domestic ambitions. We’ve got plenty of housewarming party invitation ideas to start from. Whether it’s a classic six in the Dakota, an Eichler house in the Hollywood Hills, or a slightly more buyer-friendly listing, you’ll find housewarming party invitations that match your new abode. Or, if you need some help stocking the cabinets for the party, choose a design not-so-subtly decked out with liquid comestibles. You can even solicit a professional’s opinion on your party plans with invitations styled by interior design experts like kate spade new york and Crate & Barrel. If you closed at the end of summer, a fall housewarming party idea in autumnal hues could be up your convenient side alley, or if you’re in the mood for much-needed mirth, a funny housewarming invitation could be the better bet.
Choose your favorite and start swatching—with our online design tool, you can customize every detail and trim of your design, including our pre-written housewarming party invitation wording. (It’s the easiest renovation you’ll ever go through.)
Don’t despair if you haven’t installed your landline yet (or don’t quite know what one is)—our online RSVP tools make it easy for your guests to mark their attendance and even easier for you to track it. If you need to make any last-minute party requests, send a quick note to your attendees with our messaging tools. After you wine, dine, and move the furniture back into place, post some of your party photos in an online gallery to share with your guests (and figure out where those scuffs on the hardwood came from).
After your assuredly successful housewarming party, you’re ready to start entertaining in earnest. Browse our invitations for casual get-togethers like book clubs, game nights, and happy hours to find new party ideas or just good excuses to gather your friends for a bit of low-key amusement. If you’re not quite ready for a party, but need to let friends know your whereabouts, try our moving announcements and change-of-address cards to put a stylish spin on your big new move.
