welcoming new neighbor

Posted by treeskate (My Page) on

We have a new neighbor across the street (several young kids and a new puppy.) They have a lot of people helping them move in and already trimming away overgrown bushes etc. The new owner previously helped take care of the gutters, etc. for the very elderly couple, who have now both passed away and the house sold by the neice (childless couple.)

So my friend next door to the new people does know the man and his children, as she helped her elderly neighbor communicate with the man when jobs needed doing. They are so excited to have gotten this house in our neighborhood and he will be able to do the many things the house badly needs (more than cosmetic.)

I would like to take them a welcome basket after I see that they are actually moved in, and introduce myself. I am a single 58 yr professional woman. I just want them to feel welcome to our area.

Any suggestions as to what would be appropriate? They know the town very well already.

homemade baked goods or house plants are always appropriate. More people should do what you are doing.

How about a basket with spagetti, sauce, bread sticks ... for a quick dinner. Then perhaps pound cake for dessert.
