Must One Host A House-Warming Party After Moving?
Moving out of a squeezed place such as a studio apartment to a cozy home you recently bought is a considerable achievement. The change in lifestyle calls for a celebration. However, things may not always go your way. Fees charged by movers vary depending on the size and number of items, distance and whether you had sought for assistance with packing. By the time you get to the new place, you may not have any money left for a party. Your priority is in settling down and taking a break. Under these circumstances, you may end up not hosting any house-warming event soon.
No obligation on your part or guests
From the beginning, you must appreciate the role these celebrations play. A housewarming revelry is an opportunity for you to bring together your loved ones, friends and neighbors. The objective is to share happy moments and recognize your new home. As is customary, visitors bring gifts which could be something to decorate the house, foodstuff or a drink. None of these gestures is mandatory.
When you need a few weeks alone
Despite the pressure to please your friends, you should not lose focus on your priorities. At this juncture, your preference is to unpack your boxes in peace and arrange the house. Since the task is not easy, a little help from a couple of friends, people living next door and close family members would go a long way. After that, you need a few days of rest. Then there is the getting used to the new surroundings.

You keep moving
Having moved houses several times, hosting a party may not be a fancy idea. Think of all the parties you have held each time you went to a new home. Despite the love they have for you, friends may tire of coming to your house. Besides, since the occasion calls for bringing of gifts, one may feel bothered and skip the event. If you fit this description, you might have to reconsider.
After dating for a couple of years, you decide to get married to your mate. The event takes place after months of planning where you involved friends and family. Your home is almost bursting with gifts received. Going ahead and having a party for your new matrimonial home will not augur well. Perhaps you can wait until several months later. When you get down to doing it, rename it thanksgiving or get-together.
Without a doubt, housewarming parties bring excitement into a new home. Everyone in attendance comes eagerly to see the house you moved into and appreciates the recently acquired place. Besides, the event sends welcoming signals to the neighbors and friends. However, you owe no one the duty of hosting a party. After a stressful moving phase, perhaps you need some quiet time. Also, having moved to different houses in recent years, people may get tired of the parties you keep throwing, plus it drains your account. As a newly wedded couple, you might consider not warming up your matrimonial home, at least for now.
