I am clueless. DH and I just bought a house, and we've recently reached the point where it is clean, put-together, and unpacked enough to invite people over. My aunt has offered to host a house-warming party for us. How is this done?
Do we have the party at our home, with invitations being issued from my aunt? Is a house-warming just bad etiquette period? Many of the people who attended our wedding in May would be invited to this party as well. Is that gift-grabby? I know we see it on here a lot, but the purpose of our having (well, being the recipient of) the party would not be for gifts, but rather to open our home to our friends and family. Our registry from the wedding is still available (I use it as a guide, since I am working toward completing it myself), but I would of course only direct people there if they asked.
