Why is there an image of a Tiffany & Co trinket? Was it placed as advertising by someone linked to the company?


I was wondering if it is proper to through a house warming party in my own new house? Magmarconis 16:55, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, a housewarming is correctly given by the homeowner. See p. 438 of the cite to Miss Manners below. Morrand 14:46, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Etiquette Rule[edit]

Someone put something in the article to the effect that etiquette demands that the host request "no gifts". In actuality, etiquette demands that gifts never be mentioned in an invitation, even to request "no gifts". I'm sure I could find dozens of cites, but I'm a little pressed for time right now... Almost forgot: I deleted it! --Steve Lowther 00:45, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

One cite: Martin, Judith (1983). Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior. New York, NY: Warner Books. p. 586. ISBN 0446377635. 
There are a dozen more in that book alone, I'm sure, but one's probably enough. Morrand 14:46, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


As I have only ever used links as references, I was not certain how to leave a reference for a book. I simply linked to the book in question under Google Books, but I am not certain that that is the correct way to go about it. Musiqueue (talk) 17:09, 2 December 2009 (UTC)


Are we sure a housewarming party has to take place within 90 days of moving in? A citation for this rule (that I've never heard in my life to be honest) would be helpful!IKenny (talk) 16:08, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
