Start Planning A BBQ Bash
Just how well do you know your neighbors? Invite them for food, fun and games and you will start to build a stronger neighborhood relationship. Now with Spring in full swing, you can be the spark to ignite a great grill-out with backyard party supplies and scrumptious foods that bring your neighbors together.
Neighborhood BBQ By Invitation Only
The key to making your neighborhood BBQ a success is to start with custom invitations. Each invitation should indicate the date, time and location of the BBQ. Check with city and or village officials about the possibility of having a “block party” or having the event in a neighborhood park. Another choice is your backyard. It’s up to you.
Organize & Howdy Your Neighbors
Personally delivering the invitations makes sure they fall into the right adult hands and will have more meaning to your party’s purpose of creating neighborhood harmony. The invitation should also ask the neighbor to bring a dish to pass and or bring their own meat to grill. Are they to provide their own tableware? You could step in by providing ECO green tableware . The tableware is biodegradable, which is good for the neighborhood.
Include Kids at the BBQ
Your neighborhood is not complete without kids. Keep children & tweens busy and happy before those salad forks start flying with an assortment of kids party games . It’s hard to beat “Pin-the-tail on the Horse” or “Race Car Wheel Water” game. Parents will have fun playing along too. The games are ice breakers for kids and adults alike.
Something to Take Home to Remember Your Neighborhood BBQ
Give your neighbors more to take home then just their empty dish-to-pass and a foiled covered plate of “green marshmellow jello surprise.” Neighbors will love your choice of barbeque peanuts. They’re crispy and crunchy party favor treats. Be sure to get plenty for those who just couldn’t wait until the main course.
BBQ Post Scripts
Be sure to RSVP all the neighbors to find out what dish they will bring to pass. Give them choices of fruit salad, potato salad, dessert, etc. This way not everyone will bring their “green marshmellow jello surprise.” Consider preparing these dips recipes for chips and veggies. You’re going to have fun and build a stronger, more unified neighborhood. It’s just takes a little grillin’, the taste of barbecue and some planning. Go for it!
