Spring is the perfect time to organize a resident event in your apartment community. For starters, many folks have cabin fever after a long winter and are itching for an opportunity to get out and socialize. Plus, lots of renters move during the spring, and a fun social event will allow these new residents to meet their neighbors.
Interested in planning an event for your residents this spring? Here are five ideas to get you started!
Did you know that April 5 is National Deep Dish Pizza Day? Celebrate by holding a pizza party in the club room. Provide plenty of deep dish pizza and soft drinks, and ask your residents to bring a salad or dessert to share.
Green Goody Bag Giveaway
Wednesday, April 22 is Earth Day. Set up a table outside of the leasing office and distribute goody bags to your residents with items that can help them be green, such as a reusable shopping bag, an aluminum water bottle or a small potted plant.
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
Decorate your community room in red, white and green decorations, and have a local Mexican restaurant cater your party. Margaritas or sangria are optional.
Baseball Watching Party
The 2015 Major League Baseball season will be here in no time. Rent a big screen TV and invite your residents to come to the community room to cheer on the local team. Serve baseball-themed snacks like hot dogs, peanuts and crackerjacks. Ask residents to show their spirit by wearing a baseball jersey or their favorite team’s colors.
The arrival of spring gives many people the urge to clean and organize their homes. Encourage spring cleaning by making it easier for your residents to unload the clothing, books and other items they no longer use. Ask them to drop off their donations to the leasing office, and arrange for your local Salvation Army or other charity to do a pick-up.
