housewarming party etiquette

Housewarming Party Etiquette

A real estate purchase, especially for first-time buyers, is a significant moment in the owner’s life and the occasion deserves a celebration. It shows friends and family that hard work has paid off and the buyer is now pursuing their own American dream. It’s an achievement many work toward during their adult life. The idea of a housewarming party is not a new one, but it has become a social norm.

After all, housewarming parties follow a slightly different format than other gatherings. For example, when attending a baby shower, it is considered bad etiquette if an attendee shows up without a gift. The host for these types of parties also varies. With a baby shower, the host or party planner is typically an immediate family member, but with a housewarming party, the new homeowners are the ones doing the planning and hosting.
