Is it your turn to throw the local block party? Use our Block Party Checklist to help you every step of the way!
It's the time of year where block parties are an excellent way for neighbors, friends and family to come together and socialize. If you are throwing a block party for your neighborhood or loved ones, you'll want to make sure it is the best of the best! Easy Event Planning is here to help you keep the stress under control, everything organized, and assist you in throwing the best block party possible! We can do so through our perfectly curated Block Party Checklist! Block parties are especially useful in a time when we are so reliant on our phones, the internet, and what we see on social media, we need every excuse we can get to spend some time outdoors and spend time with loved ones.
5 Reasons to Use Our Block Party Checklist
1. Automatic Timeline
The checklist can be automatically scaled to the date of your party, so all you have to do to get started is input the date. From there, due dates are calculated for each task on the list based on importance and cruciality to the approaching date. This eliminates the stress that comes with a generic party planning countdown and you won't waste time wondering "how long does it take to plan a block party?"
The tasks are color-coded in reference to the due dates. Yellow means a task is approaching, for example. If a task turns red, the date has passed. Once checked as completed, a task turns green. This is not only visually appealing but it easily allows you to see what you need to do each day and what is most important. It is also easier for others who are viewing the checklist in attempt to assist you in planning, to see what they need to do! This leads me to my next point...
Another major benefit to using Easy Event Planning’s Block Party Checklist is the ease of delegating tasks. If you’re collaborating on the block party, share the checklist with members of the neighborhood. Anyone with a Gmail address can get access to the checklist, and it can be edited simultaneously in real-time. There is a space dedicated to assign tasks from the list, so just type a fellow planner’s names in the “person assigned” box to avoid working on the same party planning tasks.
Like other websites, Easy Event Planning doesn't use a one-size-fits-all approach to party planning checklists. This one was curated specifically for block parties. It can be difficult to find specific instructions for a more specific event, such as block parties. This is where we come in! We have such a wide variety of perfectly created checklists just for the event you're looking for!
