This summer is the perfect time to get all of your apartment community neighbors and friends together for a summer block party. If you want a great way to meet other people in your apartment complex, enjoy a sunny warm afternoon, and have a great time—look no further! Here are some of our best tips for throwing a summer block party this year.
Plan Fun Activities
Since all of your neighbors won’t already know each other, plan some fun icebreaker-style activities to get everyone talking and laughing. Whether it’s corn hole (a treasured Baltimore-area tradition) or a karaoke machine, add some fun activities to the block party. Always keep in mind the number of people who are attending when choosing activities so that people aren’t left out from participating if they would like to.
Make a Great Playlist
Music is one of the most important parts of a block party, and a great playlist will attract other neighbors to the party if they weren’t originally planning on stopping by. Make sure that your playlist is a healthy mix of oldies, new popular songs, and songs that are appropriate for playing in public. Ensure that your playlist lasts for at least one hour past the planned duration of the block party so that you have something to play during clean-up (or in case the block party runs a bit over).
Create Fun Invitations
Fun invitations will entice your apartment neighbors to come to the block party. Make sure that you clearly write the day of the week, the date, and the start time. Specify the location for the block party and what will be provided. Are you asking guests to bring anything? Make sure that you note that directly on the invitation so nobody will be scrambling to make cole slaw or brownies at the last minute.
