While listening to Heather Blume’s webinar yesterday on the Apartment All Stars Webinar Wednesday Series, I was inspired to write up an idea.  Heather’s topic was “Reinventing the Resident Event”.  During the program she polled the audience to find that most have to keep their events within a $500 budget.  That is when I thought about a new take on the BYOB. Try a Bring Your Own Basket party! Invite residents to bring their picnic basket to your common area. For under $500 you can supply the picnic blankets to sit on and dessert. Fun, sun and sweets!
