Who do you invite to a housewarming party?

When deciding who to send a housewarming invitation to, consider those who were with you throughout your buying journey—close friends, family, and your real estate agent make the cut. It’s always a nice gesture to invite your new neighbors, too.

Expert tips for hosting a housewarming party

Whether it’s your first time throwing a new-home shindig or you need a refresher, these housewarming party tips will help you pull off your event without a hitch.

  1. Have a set timeline: Let guests know the exact duration of the event and whether they should drop in for a quick hello or stay the whole time.
  2. Get settled in: Stacked boxes and remnants of bubble wrap don’t make for a relaxing environment, so unpack as many boxes and put as much away as possible before throwing your housewarming party.
  3. Go decoration-free: The main event is viewing your new crash pad, so party decorations aren’t necessary—but if you want to add a few festive decorations, visit Paperless Post Party Shop for banners, balloons, or honeycomb decor you can hang over the food table. Otherwise, all you really need to do is offer guests a tasty spread of food and some bubbly drinks to sip on while they stroll from room to room.

How do you write a housewarming invitation?

With our online design tool, you can customize the details of your favorite template—including the wording. Use our pre-written housewarming party invitation wording, or change it up to suit your preferences. Include additional information using Blocks that appear below the invitation.

To write your own invitation wording, start with a welcoming opening line that hints at the type of party you’re throwing. On the next lines, add your name, the time, your address, and RSVP-by date.

An example could be, “Come break in our new digs with a night of dancing and drinks hosted by [your name] at [your new address] on [the date]. Please RSVP by [date].” Or “Warm our hearts and our home by joining us for a potluck lunch move-in celebration hosted by [your name] on [the date] at [your new address]. Please RSVP by (date).”

After the housewarming party

After you wine, dine, and move the furniture back into place, share some of your party photos with guests on the comment wall that everyone can access.
