Wording for a housewarming party invitation should include the vital information about the party: the date and time, address and RSVP information. Invitations may include information about themes or food to give guests an idea of what to expect.

Examples of housewarming party invitation wording include, "Join us in celebrating our new home at 123 Main St on Saturday, Oct. 18th from 2-5pm. Light refreshments will be served."

For a drop-in party, the invitation should read, "Drop by our new home at 123 Main St from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 18th. Cocktails will be served."

A themed housewarming party should be mentioned in the invitation, "We loved our Hawaiian honeymoon so much that we turned our home at 123 Main St into an oasis! Join us for a Hawaiian housewarming party next Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wear your best Hawaiian shirt, and bring your leis!"

If a housewarming party coincides with a holiday, let guests know about the combination in the invitation: "Join us in our new home at 123 Main St for pre-trick or treating cocktails and snacks on Halloween. Stop by from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., then trick or treat through our neighborhood."

Invitations should also include contact information for guests to RSVP. An email address or phone number can be included at the bottom of the invitation. Housewarming party etiquette frowns upon the mentioning of gift registries on invitations. Housewarmings are informal affairs, so invitations may be sent with just a few days notice and may be delivered via mail or email.
