The Super Bowl is just around the corner! Now is the time to prepare in order to host a Super Bowl party that everyone will be looking forward to attending. Whether you have a specific theme in mind for your Super Bowl party or you want to host a traditional, yet unique Super Bowl party, you will need to make some plans. You do not have to be the most creative person in the world to host an exciting and successful Super Bowl party. All you need are these five Super Bowl party success steps, and you will be on your way to hosting a spectacular Super Bowl party.

We have compiled a series of articles to help you with these Super Bowl Success Steps. With these steps and some imagination, you will have a Super Bowl party success.

Super Bowl Party Success Step #1: Theme
A theme is a great way to make your Super Bowl party unique. A theme can be more specific, such as: Mardi Gras, Luau, or Super Bowl Fiesta, or it can be a color theme or team theme or any other creative idea you can conjure up. The most important thing to remember is that you must combine the event with football. If you choose an event that does not generally coincide with football, simply add in games, decorations, or food that will bring the two together. Check out our article, “Super Bowl Fiesta or Mardi Gras Party Theme” for ideas on how to host a Super Bowl Fiesta or Mardi Gras Party theme.

Super Bowl Party Success Step #2: Invitations
Once you determine the theme you will have, you can purchase or create invitations. The invitations are important because they are the first peek into your Super Bowl party. Once your guests receive your invitation, they will be able to start making plans and start looking forward to a great Super Bowl party.

While there are many invitations you can purchase, you could set the tone of your Super Bowl party with invitations you create on your own. Check out our article “DIY Super Bowl Party Invitations” for two invitations that can be used for any Super Bowl party theme.

Super Bowl Party Success Step #3: Decorations
What is a party without decorations? Decorations bring your theme and football together. Create a Super Bowl wonderland with decorations you purchase or make. Base your decorations on the theme of your party. Check out our article “Simple Super Bowl Party Decoration Ideas” for some fun decorating ideas that can be used for any Super Bowl party theme.

Super Bowl Party Success Step #4: Food and Drinks
A party is not a party without food. In fact, one of the best parts of the Super Bowl party other than the game is the food. If you have a theme, try to incorporate the food into the theme. For example, if you are having a Super Bowl Fiesta, tacos would be a great touch. Of course, you can’t have a Super Bowl party without chips and dip and any of the other “traditional” party snacks. Check out our article “Super Bowl Party Snacks” for some great snacks to serve at any Super Bowl party event.

Super Bowl Party Success Step #5: Games
Keep your guests entertained by providing some simple and fun games and activities that can be played during the game or at halftime. This is a great way to keep the kids entertained, as well. Check out our article “Fun Super Bowl Games and Activities” for a variety of games and activities that can be played at any Super Bowl party.

Now that you are familiar with the five Super Bowl party success steps, you can be sure your party will be THE Super Bowl party to attend.

Valentines Day Facts

Celebrated on February 14, Valentines Day is the festival of love birds across the world, irrespective of the nation, caste, religion or creed. Love birds across the nation await this event desperately throughout the year. However the story of its origin is still under blurred sacks. There are different ideas to the way Valentines Day celebration began. Some trace it to Lupercalia, an ancient Roman festival while other experts associate the event with two saints named valentine of the early Christian church. One of them would secretly conduct marriage of couples by disobeying the rule of Roman Emperor, Claudius; while other was a lover of children but, was imprisoned when he would not honor other gods. The children missed him and wrote messages of affection to him through the bars of the cell. This can be considered as the beginning of exchanging messages. Still others link it with an old English belief that love birds choose their mates on February 14.

New Year’s Resolutions for You and Your Apartment

New Year’s resolutions don’t have to be limited to losing weight or writing the great American novel. Why not pledge now to do some nice things for yourself in your apartment this year?
Get organized: Many of us would like to be better organized. Whether it’s paper clutter in the “landing area” of your apartment, closets that are overflowing, or a child’s room with contents that migrate all over the apartment, getting serious about keeping your possessions under control is an excellent New Year’s resolution.
Clean more often: Even though cleaning is not a favorite pastime for most of us, no one would argue that the quality of life in our home improves in direct proportion to its cleanliness. Discover what motivates you to keep your place clean, whether it’s setting up a cleaning chore chart with your roommates or adding green materials to your cleaning regimen. Make keeping your apartment cleaner part of your goal-setting plan for the year.
Redecorate: Is your apartment stuck in a decade that you are tired of visiting? Or maybe you moved in a year ago but never got around to actually hanging pictures on the walls? If you find yourself in a decor rut as the old year is ending, make interior designing your New Year’s resolution. Get inspired, set your priorities, write up a budget, and start making it happen. This will be the year you create the apartment you can’t wait to come home to!
Create a nicer place for all: Your new resolution doesn’t have to concern life in your apartment alone. How about improving the environment in your apartment community? You could start an apartment community library or do your part to conserve natural resources in the area where you live. Ask your neighbors about positive changes they’d like to see and resolve to be the catalyst that makes at least one of them happen in the new year.

Resolve to keep these New Year’s resolutions by writing them down and revisiting them frequently to maintain your focus. Make this the year you move away from procrastination and toward happy new beginnings for you and your apartment!
