Host a Rockin’ NYE At Your Arcadia Run Apartment Home

Hosting people for the holidays can be stressful, but New Years Eve is one of the most fun nights of the year! It is a time to celebrate the year that has just gone by and look forward to the year ahead. There is no better place to ring in the New Year than your Arcadia Run apartment home! If you’re planning to host a New Years Eve party this year, check out some of our tips for hosting the most rockin’ party ever!

Stock Up          

When hosting a New Years Eve party, it’s always good to be prepared! Make sure you have enough drink ware and food for everyone, plus extras in case a few people show up who originally couldn’t make it. Our spacious kitchens offer plenty of space for food and drinks, especially some celebratory champagne!

Clean Up

Tidy up the areas where most people will be congregating, such as the kitchen and the living room. Set aside a room or a closet to hold everyone’s coats, as it’s sure to be chilly out. In addition, make sure you have plenty of trash bags on hand for cleaning up after everyone leaves.


If your apartment home is still decorated from the holidays, then you won’t have to spend too much time on decorating! To add some New Years Eve sparkle, just light a few candles or add some gold and silver accents. Ask friends to bring some noisemakers or even balloons!


There are many television programs and movies to watch on New Years Eve, but you won’t want to spend the whole evening staring at the TV. Ask everyone to recount his or her favorite memory from the previous year, or what his or her funniest New Years Eve story is. If people are not into making New Years resolutions, ask them one place they want to travel to in 2017. Before you know it, it will be time to watch the ball drop!

Whether or not you make any 2017 resolutions, the New Year is a great time to finally make the move to Arcadia Run! Contact us today to learn how you can move into a new apartment home in the New Year.

Tips for Hosting Thanksgiving in Your Arcadia Run Apartment Home


Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family, and food, and our apartment homes at Arcadia Run are the perfect place to host Thanksgiving dinner, or even a ‘Friendsgiving’ gathering. If you’re stressing about how to clean, cook, and have everything ready in time, don’t worry. We’ve compiled a list of tips for how to host a stress free Thanksgiving meal at your Arcadia Run apartment home. Check them out below:

Make a Plan

First things first, figure out who will be joining you for Thanksgiving. Once you have a head count, you can start planning the seating arrangements and calculating how much food you will need. Ask that everyone RSVP as soon as possible, so there aren’t any last minute additions.

Divide and Conquer

Between all of the shopping, prepping, and cooking, there will be a lot to do! One of the best ways to reduce stress before everyone comes over is to divvy up the responsibilities. If you’re out at the grocery store, have your roommate start cleaning the apartment. When you get back, you can team up and get everything done in less time!

Less is More

When it comes to decorations, try not to go overboard. You’ll have your hands full with preparing the food and eventually the cleanup, so you don’t want to add to the list of tasks with tons of decorations. Keep it simple and classy with a festive tablecloth, a wreath, or a few seasonal candles scattered throughout your apartment home. A few simple touches can go a long way.

Bring Your Own….

If you’re having more than 3 or 4 people over, it’s completely fine to ask guests to contribute something to the celebration! Make sure you specify what you would like people to bring over, so you don’t end up with 3 cheese platters! Once you’ve made your lists of everything you need, see what you are still missing and ask guests to fill in the gaps. Some easy things for people to bring would be a bottle of wine or champagne, desserts, or appetizers.

Clean As You Go

Thanksgiving dinner is wonderful, but the aftermath can be a hassle, especially if you’re hosting! One way to cut down on the giant pile of dishes after your meal is to clean as much as you can after every course. Once people are done nibbling on appetizers and you’re about to serve dinner, clear and put away all of the appetizers. Remove empty dishes from the table throughout the meal and give them a quick rinse before putting them in the dishwasher. Save the larger dishes, such as the turkey pan, for after dinner.

All of these tips will help reduce your stress when hosting Thanksgiving, but the most important thing to remember is being thankful that you are sharing the day with friends and family. For more information on how you can make Arcadia Run your home, visit us online.
