HGTV's Meg Caswell Brings on the Block Party - Put A Pin In It!

Posted: Updated:

HGTV sweetheart Meg Caswell brought her amazing DIY ideas that covered all the bases for a successful summer block party. She thought of everything including signage, décor, and (some might say most importantly) food presentation.

  • First thing to do Meg says,  set the theme of your block party by painting a drop cloth with the theme name i.e. Rock Around The Block, and stringing it between two trees on the street.
  • You can also stencil drop cloths with the theme colors to be used as tablecloths that match the party's theme.
  • Meg's tip is to purchase burlap to create your own sacks. Incorporate the neighborhood kids so they can each decorate their own sack before racing against each other.
  • An inexpensive, and festive idea for lighting,  buckets filled with sand and candles to be used to line the street and transition the party from day to night
  • Tikki torches purchased from the dollar store can also be decorated in colors related to your theme to enhance the after hours appeal.
  • Meg created her kabob display utilizing a Styrofoam board. This can be re-used for years to come and is as easy, as it is inexpensive.
  • Meg's DIY s'mores bar is sure to be the hit of any outdoor event. Check out her tips on how to build your own.
