How to Throw the Perfect Block Party!

I bought my house almost five years ago, and if you can believe it, I don’t even know my neighbors’ names. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I have even spoken to anyone on our street. See, we live in a really rural area and it isn’t like someone is just sitting 10 feet from my window. That said, getting to know my neighbors is something I have been wanting to do for a while now, but how? With a fun-filled block party of course! Problem is, I know nothing about planning a block party. Luckily, the Nestle Solutions Center offers plenty of help in that department.

This post was brought to you in collaboration with Nestle, but all words, thoughts and opinions are my own. 


  1. Every party is always better with ice cream. Thanks for sharing the coupon too, we actually buy Dreyer's ice cream a lot.

  2. Ice cream is always the perfect ice breaker. I hope you get to know your neighbors soon.

  3. We don't have much of a community, which I feel is standard for a transient city like Las Vegas, but we do have frequent family ice cream parties that are always a lot of fun!

  4. Is it sad that I've never been to a block party before? I live in a very rural area and don't have many neighbors, but I could use these ideas for a party at our community center. Thanks!

  5. Where are these block parties I'm always hearing, er reading about? I must be living in the wrong town! 😉

  6. I've never been to a block party before. Our neighbors arranged one in an old neighborhood we used to live in, but we had prior commitments that day. I'd love to throw a block party where we live now and ice cream would be a great way to attract the neighbors!

  7. The first year we lived in my last house we did a block party, but then that was it. Of course, if they'd served ice cream, maybe we all would have fought for a repeat!
