On Location Parties!
Consider saving a few bucks this year and deciding to hold your own on location party? Are you a landlord or property manager and want to thank your tenants with an Appreciation or Resident's day event?Block Parties: Planning these parties are great fun but a lot of work for just a few people, but before remember to check to see if you need any permits, special permission from an association, a landlord and oridinances for your area.
Block parties often start with a few neighbors who get together and want to meet others from the neighborood or development, sometimes forming commitees, have meetings, make plans, and make flyers to spread the word. Activities like a DJ, a central pool (See Dip-N-Dance ) for people to swim, set up tables for games, kids love face painting, maybe some baked goods for a cake walk or raffle. You may want to consider donations taken by the most trusted neighbor of course, for the next party or donating to a favorite charity (See National Night Out).
House Parties: In the summer time people have a house party outdoors in the back yard, sometimes they called them family a reunion, BBQ, pool party (See Dip-N-Dance ) and in the winter usually in the month of December, it's typically a holiday party. (See Picnics)
If you are just having a bunch of neighbors over at your place for a gathering in the yard, you may want to consider notifying your neighbors. An invite would be best even to those who you know won't come. Making your neighbors aware of your party plans, especially if you're having a DJ or a few drunk or loud friends. This will give you a better idea of the neighbors tolerences or even the lack there of and maybe even surprise you and show up.Tenant Appreciation / Resident's Day Event: Yes, landlords and property managers appricate you. If not, you should move! Just our 2 cents. We love to do these events, some are like mini carvinals, others are more business like where it's more of an open house to show off the available apartments. If you're considering
Speaking of food! A client of ours asked us to look into some new cool ideas, they had been using the standard stuff for their appreciation day celebration. Hired us as their DJ, set up a few tables and chairs, and had guests bring a covered dish. While the guests arrived we played some cool summer time tunes, take requests, as they get some food and then we do some contest, from trivia and diving for pennies to hula-hoops.
BUT! The best is when there's leftover food, like
hot dogs. Yea, you got it! A hot dog eating contest, add in some leftover
cupcakes, soda and you get the idea. Sickness!
The covered dish idea, for some reason, faded, new management took over, so they tried catering it themselves, and eventually, started ordering pizza instead.
So upon doing some research for an upcoming block party event, we discovered an article at About.com called "Get Freebies to Share With Your Friends at House Party". The article is about, in part, a service "House Party that provides a kit full of sponsored freebies intended to be used to throw a party to promote a certain product". Selected host get a box of freebies that vary depending in full sized products, free samples, coupons, and party decorations. Read the article here, maybe a way to get some cool stuff or visit the groups website at houseparty.com
