Housewarming No-No: Gift registries

by EPI Staff on October 28, 2009

Q: I’ve just moved into a new house and would like to throw a party.  My friends have asked about my color scheme, so I was wondering if it is okay to register and include store information in my invitations.

A: It’s fine to throw a housewarming to show off your new digs, but it’s incorrect to mention gifts, much less a registry, on your invitations.  You’re inviting your pals over to enjoy your new home, not to decorate, so leave registries to the brides and moms-to-be.  But if friends should ask, there’s nothing wrong with mentioning that you’ve painted your living room sage green or you love country-French style.  Just don’t put them in writing.
