The How-To Lounge: Welcoming Neighbors



Getting new neighbors can be a lot of fun, that is if you get the quiet, respectful kind! One way to start the neighborly relationship off on the right foot is to welcome them with open arms. For some ideas, click here to

  • Be friendly but not over bearing

  • Don't be too aggressive when they first move in — remember they are probably quite busy and overwhelmed getting organized
  • Once you have given them a few days to get settled, ring their doorbell and introduce yourself

  • Host an intimate dinner party with other neighbors so everyone can meet and get to know each other
  • Send them a goodie bag with the essentials you need when you move: a bottle of wine of course, snacks in case they haven't gotten a chance to go to the store yet, a restaurant guide of your favorites in the neighborhood, the necessary tools to get a house in good shape that they might have forgotten (a hammer, push pins, scissors, duct tape, etc)

Good luck with your new neighbors!

We aren't that classy. We invited our new neighbors over to watch football because they didn't have cable yet, then sent them home with leftovers!

Veronicaraye, I thought that too until we moved into our new house in July. Our neighbors and their kids showed up on our doorstep one evening with a plate full of homemade chocolate chip cookies! It shocked my husband and I that people really did this, but at the same time it made us feel very comfortable and less stressed.
