A house-warming party is a special party traditionally held soon after someone gets moved into a new home. It is a time for hosts to present their home to guests, post packing, to allow their guests to tour and see their new accomplishment. It is usually informal with drinks, music and light refreshments. Some people choose to invite family and close friends, some even choose to invite the neighbors so you can get to know one another.
It is usually custom to bring gifts, to help decorate the host’s new home. This usually consists of plants, picture frames, or maybe a bottle of wine for all to enjoy. Hosts usually invite guests at least a few weeks ahead of time, so of course invitations are expected.
It is important to have some refreshments out so that your guests won’t go hungry and him helps them relax more in the company of other strangers, because I am sure not everyone is going to know each other. Or you can just have a potluck and ask everyone to bring something since you just got done getting your house together, the last thing you want to do is cook for who knows how many people.
