Choose the right film. Make sure you know who you’re inviting to your movie night before you choose a movie to watch. Know what your friends like to watch, and don’t force a movie that won’t please the crowd. Send out an e-mail to your friends and take a vote on what everyone wants to watch.

Make popcorn. There’s no way around it; popcorn is a must for any movie night. You can make whatever snacks you want, but if you don’t have popcorn, people will notice. Make sure you have enough for everybody and get ready to snack.

Make sure everyone is comfortable. Have enough seats for everyone, and make those seats extra comfy. Movies are long, so be sure to have extra blankets, pillows, and cushions on hands so your friends can be relaxed.

Let Your Bohemian Style Fly at Marina Pointe Apartments

The bohemian style is one of free spiritedness. It is a design mirrored by the exploits and travels of the apartment owner, and one that showcases their life in dazzling colors and patterns.

Colors are a big part of bohemian decor. Bold colors are a must, and earth tones are also extremely important. Do not rely solely on earth tones that linger in brown and green. You can play with any natural colors that work for you. The dazzling colors of flowers in spring and the soft color of a cloud as light filters through it are great choices to consider. Bohemians are artistic, so use that in your color choice.

Another important aspect of utilizing a bohemian style is the personal touch. A bohemian apartment should be full of trinkets, knickknacks, and mementos that reflect the life of whoever lives there. Decorate with personal items, gifts that you’ve received, strange oddities, and all types of mismatched objects for true bohemianism.

Cookie Pizza

  • Sprinkle on powdered sugar and add the candies on top.

Sugar and Spice Popcorn

Host the Best Wine Tasting Party at Marina Pointe

There are many wonderful ways to enjoy the summer with friends at our North Chattanooga apartments. One great event to host is a wine tasting party. Here are a few ideas on how to throw the best wine tasting party.

Choosing your wine will be the first, and the most important, step of your planning process. Stick with simple wines, reds and whites, and take into consideration how many people you have invited and how many will actually attend. This will help you to know how many bottles you need to purchase. Since wine tasting does not require full glasses to be drank, one bottle will be able to serve about six to eight people.

After you have decided on your wine, it is time to decorate. A great way to get things started for your wine tasting party is by coming up with a clever way to disguise the wine bottle. Your guests can’t see the labels, or the fun of the event is compromised, so create or purchase wine cozies to help hide any information on the bottle from view.
