When we moved into the neighborhood a few years ago, our sweet neighbors brought over the obligatory “welcome to the neighborhood” brownies. Score. Recently it was our turn to pay it forward. Have I told you that we just got brand new neighbors...right next door?! I am SO excited! This sweet little family is from Michigan and they have TWO BOYS...just like us! The kicker is that the two boys are the EXACT same age as my two littles! LOVE IT! To welcome them to the neighborhood, I put together a few little treats so that we'd rank as their favorite neighbors. I can already see a gazillion cookouts, playdates, pool trips, happy hours on the patio in our future ;)
Can't go wrong with a plate of brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Ummmm...Mr. Spouse might have stolen half the batch of cookies, so I had to bake brownies to cover the giant plate! I found the plate/platter at Target a few months back for a whopping $1!!! I bought a few of them with the intention of giving them away at some point...SO glad I finally got to!
The basket has a few little things...NOTHING big.
Of course, my boys wanted to give their boys a little something special, so sidewalk chalk and bubbles won out.
And a little somethin' for momma...a YUM Tyler candle...warm sugar cookies. Unpacking isn't fun, but if the house smells good, who cares?!
And take out menus! Being new to the area, it's important to have these on hand at ALL TIMES. Who wants to cook while you’re unpacking?! NO thank you!!!!
I hope we didn’t come on too strong ;)
How do you welcome new neighbors into your neighborhood?!?!?!
