What better way to get to know your neighbors than a summer block party? We suggest a picnic theme; use picnic gingham paper goods to decorate your tables. Don't forget cutlery! Embrace the power of place cards!. They will help everyone really get to know each other. And nothing says summer like seashells! Last, summer novelty favors, like a pinwheel, folding fan, and whistles, can be both decorative table accents, as well as delightful take-home trinkets.
