Housewarming Invitation Letter with Samples


A new home is great excuse to have all your friends and family over, and a great way to meet your new neighbors. While making plans for your housewarming party, you’ll want to send out housewarming invitations, either physically or electronically, to invite guests to check out your new dwelling and save you the trouble of having to celebrate alone. However, writing a housewarming invitation letter can be very confusing, especially if you have no idea of what your letter should look like. This is why you need to learn to write one that reflects the purpose of the party and speaks to your guest personally, instead of hiring someone to do the job for you.

Depending on your persona and standard of living, you can either choose to make your party formal or informal and your style of invite has to reflect this choice. Before you begin writing any invitations, take a few minutes to plan out how memorable and what message you want your party to carry. Whatever style you choose must include the following details:

  • Date and Time
  • Venue and Address
  • RSVP Requests
  • Maps and Directions
  • Name of hosts
  • Special requests such as food or drinks contributions etc.
