A housewarming party is a party held on the occasion of moving into a new home, apartment, condo or residence. It is an occasion for the new homeowner to present their new home to their friends, and sometimes for friends to give gifts to furnish the new home. Housewarming parties are generally informal.
Housewarming gifts are customary and usually consist of something for the new house such as a potted plant or something to be enjoyed during the party such as a basket of fruit, a bouquet of flowers, or a housewarming gift basket filled with gourmet food and snacks.
A housewarming party may be thrown upon completion of renovation or remodel. Housewarming may be presented as an "open house" where people are free to come and go during a fixed window of time on a given day. Some people invite all of their new neighbors to their housewarming. This allows the new homeowner to meet their new neighbors and make new friends in the community.
Some communities still have what is called The Welcome Wagon. Many of the neighboring businesses and neighbors may donate useful household items to be brought to the new residents to welcome them to the neighborhood.
