Block parties are making a comeback. These are the neighborhood gatherings that literally shut down a block. Some of them involve setting up tables, chairs and firing up grills in the street. Other blocks take things to the next level by renting bounce houses, hiring a DJ and even setting off fireworks at the end of the night. If you’re part of a block party in your neighborhood, then there are some things you’ll want to do to get ready. Here’s what to consider:
Your Potluck Dish
It’s a safe bet that your block party is going to be a potluck affair. This means everyone gets to bring their own dish to share. It should be organized between appetizers, salads, main courses, side dishes and desserts. The amount of what you’re making will be determined by how many people have committed to coming. It just might mean doubling up your recipe.
Block parties are like big picnics. That means all the necessary supplies are needed like paper plates, napkins, cups and plastic utensils. You should encourage your block to embrace the concept of repurposing. In other words, you can use leftover party plates from a super hero birthday or a Halloween party. Why not? They get the job done.
If you have kids, then you should think about “sponsoring” at least one activity for them to do with the other kids on the block. You can come up with some relay races or other games of chance. And there is noting wrong with a cooler full of water balloons!
