There are a few things to consider when throwing a block party, but the most important thing is safety. You will be having a party on a street and so you want to put up slow signs and keep an eye out on the roads. Children will be running around, and most likely alcohol will be consumed by the parents.
The second most important thing is food. There are a few different ways to do it. You can get it catered or ask everyone on the block to bring their own dish. If you decide on the latter, make sure you coordinate with everyone, so you don’t have all desserts or all appetizers. A great option is to get the event catered and then split between the houses.
None of this can happen if you don’t have great relationships with your neighbors! Get out there and talk about it at you HOA meeting. Ask people who have been in the neighborhood for a while to help you. Set up some fun and games for not only the kids but also the adults. Block parties are a great way to get to know new neighbors!
