Why Do People Have Housewarming Parties?

Traditionally, if you were moving house, you would throw a housewarming party for your friends and family. Now days this is a social event for friends and family to get together and enjoy each others company, however a housewarming party used to be more about friends and family helping you move into your new house.

People would help you bring your furniture in and put it all in place, help decorate certain areas of the house and help you get settled in. As a thank you, you would provide food and drink, creating a small party atmosphere.

Housewarming Gifts

The people attending the party would also bring along housewarming gifts for family, ranging from tools to help you around the house, through to kitchen utensils and house number plaques to make your house feel more like a home. This part of the tradition is still undertaken by many, however it is usually gifts such as luxury hampers, small kitchen accessories and house name plates which are now given rather than tools and accessories. And if someone you care about is ill, elevate their spirits while nourishing their mind, body, and soul with a range of these Get well soon hampers for friends and families!

Housewarming Helpers

One part of the housewarming party that has pretty much stopped is the guests helping you to move in and organize your house. Now day’s people expect a housewarming party to be a time for them to relax and enjoy rather than being expected to help dragging furniture around or painting the walls. However that isn’t to say that people will be unwilling to help.

Some friends and family may be happy to come to the party and then be willing to come back at a later stage to help you with your house. Alternatively, you may choose to have people come around before the party to help you get the house sorted for the party. Obviously if it is only a small task such as putting up house number signs, the chances are that people wont mind doing it on the night of the party, however if you invite them round for the party and hand them a paintbrush and ask them to paint an entire room, the chances are that they are not going to be very happy about it!

Party Time

Treat your housewarming party as a time to relax and see friends and family, then try and rope them into coming back at a later stage to help you with any jobs that you may need help with. Most people will be more than happy to prove you with a little bit of help to settle into your house.
