@hollyberry4:  Commenting to follow. We close in March, wedding in June. Not sure if we should host something before the wedding or after during the summer… no AC in the house, though!

I’d just wait until March. You don’t have to do it right away! It can be any time really, it’s just a time for people to come check out your new digs and tell you how cool it is!

@hollyberry4:  Id wait till March- nicer weather and the house will be more of a home (when all your special touches are added).

I’d do it in early March, when most of your projects are done and you’re settled in!

We moved in December too.  We are having a Super Bowl Party/Housewarming.  That way we can just turn on the game and not have to worry about keeping people entertained :-p.

I’d wait until you were comfortable and done with most of your projects. No need to rush, there really isn’t a timeline for these types of things.

I attended a housewarming where they didn’t even have adequate furniture! I don’t know why they thought they had to have it so soon. We had pizza while sitting on the floor, would have been happy to wait a while.

I would wait until March. I would want to show off all of the completed projects!

We bought ours in June but didn’t move in until October/November. It was a slow move so the actual time is blurred… And we still haven’t had one! Mainly because we still have three reno to do items and then the holidays were crazy. Now we still are waiting to have one another couple months because honestly, we have no curtains and almost no living room furniture and the house looks fairly barren. 

I plan on doing one for March and say on the invites, ‘Before the weather finishes warming up, we’d love for your presence to come warm our house!’

I think anytime within 6 months from finishing a reno/moving in is pretty safe.

@hollyberry4:  I think March works, especially if you send invitations in February.

I am in the exact same boat as you! We closed on our house the week before Christmas and have been working on it non stop since! I am thinking of waiting until March to have a housewarming when the weather warms up and hopefully people can hang outside as well.
