A housewarming party is a good way to show off your new home to neighbors, friends and family alike. If you've bought that dream home, celebrating your new purchase with others is a good way to get people excited along with you. So if you're planning on throwing a housewarming party, you'll probably need invitations to let people know what exactly is going to be happening at your event. Of course, you have full control over the events that'll be taking place at your housewarming party, but you don't want people to be surprised at having to work when they attend.

Mention All Activities

Some people throw housewarming parties in order to get people to help them move in, so when sending invitations, it'd be wise to mention all the activities that you'll need help with. It'd also be a good idea to mention the location of your new home since most likely no one has ever seen it before. Including directions with a little map on the invitation would be a good idea.

Save Money

Housewarming invitations could be sent via the Internet with Evite as well. If after you've purchased an expensive home and you're budgeting like crazy, it might be wise to save money by sending free invitations via email. Evite allows you to personalize your invitations and makes it easy to send to everyone on your contact list so they'll know when and where your housewarming party will be. You can simply make housecalls to neighbors letting them know you're throwing a housewarming party, saving you the expense of purchasing invitations.

Show Off your Home

Another good idea would be to have the picture of your new home featured on the front of your housewarming invitations. It'd help people find your new home, and it'd also be another way to show off. If you enjoy photography, this would be a natural thing. If you're not a photographer, you can always pull a prank on people and post the picture of a multi-million dollar mansion; it'd be fun to see their reaction once they've actually found your house, which may look nice, but is nowhere near a mansion. Of course, you could do it the other way around if you actually do have a multi-million dollar mansion and post the picture of a small shack.

Show Off even More

You could go a step further and instead of taking a photograph if your new home, record a tour on DVD styled in the MTV Cribs fashion to get people excited about coming to your event. You can sort of make it a fun parody by instead of opening up a fridge with expensive wine, you'd have milk, orange juice and eggs. And when you enter the bedroom you could say the famous "this is where the magic happens" line and have cheap magic trick items on the bed. There are plenty of other ideas out there, but just making it unique should definitely get people excited about your event.

Not too Difficult

Housewarming invitation ideas aren't too difficult to come up with. You could also, add famous house related quotes on your invitations to give it that extra bit of detail. But the most important info like time of the event (unless it's in an open house style giving people a chance to come whenever they want), location, R.S.V.P so they can let you know whether they're coming or not, food that will be served and activities that'll take place. And instead of buying invitations, if you're looking to save money, there's invitation making software available that allow you to make your own.
