15 Beautiful Block Party Ideas

Give me an excuse to plan a good party any day and I am one happy camper! Most find it stressful, but I find it rewarding and fun! In preparation for my Husband and I's HGTV My First Place episode I have pinned numerous ideas to throw a fun watch party! Since it is summer I am loving fun a flirty bright colors! Hopefully you find these pins as inspiring as I did. Below are a few of my fave pins from my Ultimate Block Party Pinterest boards.

Flowers
I think these are probably the most beautiful flowers I've seen! Such color and variety, sure to make your tables pop and standout! Stretch your bouquets by using stout mason jars and using less flowers in each.

To me, Sunflowers just scream summer. While these are beautiful as is you could make these easily with other kinds of silk flowers so that you can use them all year round! Use Styrofoam floral balls and hot glue the head of flowers all over each ball. String up with some twine and hang.

I have recently fallen in love with Dahlias, aren't they gorgeous?? Use three to fill up a small vase and place sporadically through your tablescape. The confetti here is a great touch too!

Lighting

Cover simple mason jars with mod podge and tissue paper and create a beautiful garden of lights for your backyard and patio. Use LED lights to prevent overheating and keep safe for little ones you may have running around in the yard.

Are these awesome or what? Light your outdoor tables from underneath to give your linens a warm glow. You can use the easy touch round lights and attach them to the table bottoms with Velcro.

Entertainment
Every block party needs some entertainment, why not create you own custom cornhole boards? If you haven't played corehole you should try it first chance you get. Fun for the whole family, whether you're are at a tailgate, on the beach, at a wedding or just hanging out with friends!

I've always wanted to make one of these photo booth walls! A very fun and different way to capture memories at a wedding or party. 

Bubble bottles with pipe cleaner wands, such cute presentation! These would be great for a wedding send off or to entertain kids at a party!

Sweet Treats
I just love these mini sprinkle whoopie pies! The perfect bite size, bet you can't just eat one!

I've seen cute little fruit cookies before but not this many together and with such cute presentation!

Fondue station! Now this is a fun activity for kids and even adults! Yes, it can get messy, but still a lot of fun! Try laying down parchment paper and labeling each topping. Perfect for a block party or kids event!

I personally can't wait to try these cookie dough popsicles! Made with almond milk, these are supposed to be low fat and low calorie...ummm, heck yeah!

Thirst Quenchers
I really love a good sangria and these look delicious!

Okay, I know this isn't a novel idea, freezing fruit in ice cubes, but I honestly never think to do it! Perfect for adding color to your party drinks!

Brighten up your tablescape with some bright mason jar goblets! These are so cute and you can customize with whatever color you like. You can make these on your own with candles sticks and mason jars or buy them online!

  9. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
