What was your TOEFL score...?
It's called a "HOUSE WARMING PARTY"....not "HOME WARMUP"..go to uscis.gov and download form I-134.

What's more important is to show evidence of strong ties to the home country. This ensures that the visitor will return home before their visa expires instead of remaining here illegally. Usually showing financial/income documents helps convince ties to home country.

Housewarming party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housewarming_party)

Home warmup seems like the home wants to warmup before the big match!

Use I-134 (Affidavit of support) if you google there is sample out there
Then you write an invitation letter to your parents (nothing official) and then sign it
send all other required docs
Pay visa applicaiton fees in India
Take an appointment based on your place (in India)

Nish - Did you check shana04's reply above ??? It has most of the things that you need to worry about.

Invitation letter is not at all mandatory. But since you insist so much, google "parents US visa invitation letter" and the very first link is your answer.

I assume you would at least modify that format to fit to your housewarming occasion.

Btw, enjoy the house! Congrats!!

Artificial letters like this will not help you. In today's modern world with phone calls to india is 1-2 cents per minute, it clearly indicates that the letter is designed just to show to the consulate. Rather prepare a request letter to immigration officer showing the reason that you have house warming party and want your parents to be there, so please grant their visitor visa.

Most important thing you need to worry about is "potential immigrant" issue. Put enough evidence that prove that your parent will go back after visiting.

- Current job or business - most important.
- House ownership & Other estate
- Your siblings living in India

Best of luck buddy.

just an alternate approach based on what my parents and in-laws have experienced........

they have just said to the consul that our son (daughter) and his (her) family lives in US and we visit them from time to time to meet them and spend time with grandchild......hence we request a tourist visa.......we have the following ties to India and here is our financial position snapshot

this has also worked......no specific occassion (birthday, graduation, housewarming etc) asked for...
