How to plan a neighborhood block party

A block party is a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors and create a sense of community. But where do you start? The first step is determining who will make the guest list - all of your immediate neighbors. Everyone on your block? Once you've decided on this, it's time to start making those invitations! Choose the perfect block party invitation template, and customize it to your liking. Make sure to include all the essential information, including the date, time, location, and RSVP instructions.

The next step is to start planning the activities. Will there be games? Music? Some crafts? Make sure you have plenty of fun activities to entertain your guests throughout the party. Another vital consideration is the decor. You want to make your party one to remember, so take some time to choose decorations that fit the party's mood.

What type of food should you serve at a block party?

When it comes to food for a block party, you want to make sure you have enough to feed an army! And plenty of variety so everybody can find something they like. From savory to sweet, healthy to indulgent, ensure you provide a little bit of everything. For meat lovers, burgers and hot dogs are always a hit. Add some grilled chicken or steak for those who want something a little fancier. And don't forget the sides! Fries, corn, and pasta salad are all classic party fare. Veggie burgers are an excellent option for vegetarians (or those who just want something lighter). Grilled vegetables are also delicious and can be served as is or on top of a salad or sandwich. And, of course, no meal is complete without dessert! Cookies, brownies, and ice cream will surely leave your guests satisfied!

Remember: You'll also need something to wash all of this food down. While soda, beer, and wine are all safe options, pitchers of iced tea or fresh lemonade provide a welcome change of pace. Plus, these pitchers are easy to make ahead of time, so you can spend more time enjoying the party instead of running back and forth to the kitchen!
