Top Tips For The Perfect Party!

Check out our top tips for ensuring your street party is a total success! 


Get chatting

Firstly, start by chatting to your neighbours and make sure they would like to get involved in a street party. If so then dividing the jobs up will help ensure everything runs smoothly.


Local council

Check with your local council whether you need a license, what the road closure procedures are, and get everything approved before the big day. 



Once your street agrees and you have your license from the council, then it's time to get the invites handed out.



The perfect street party isn't complete without bunting. Don't forget to decorate your whole street with flags and balloons to make the event a total show stopper! 



Any successful street party needs some fun activities to keep everyone entertained. Check out our list below for some inspiration:

  • Quizzes
  • Tug of war
  • Musical chairs (a great one for the kids)
  • Cake decorating 
  • A fun dress theme (the best fancy dress could win a prize)
