Plan Your Crossing Party with These Simple Steps

August 20th, 2014

We know that our residents here at The Crossing love finding new Anaheim apartment living tips, and we love sharing them.

Those of you who love to entertain at home are sure to appreciate these five tips on how to make throwing your next party as easy and successful as can be.

  • Set the tone by creating a playlist with a mix that fits the mood of your gathering. Start off with a string of mellow tunes, build the energy and tempo as the party goes on, then bring the mood back down for when it comes time to wrap things up.
  • Make it easy for guests to mingle by passing trays of hors d’oeuvres or by setting food up in “stations” rather than all in the same place. This encourages movement and flow throughout the space.
  • Serving food buffet-style makes life easier not only for the host but for the guests as well; they can choose what they want to eat and how much while you only have to worry about getting the food presented and keeping it hot, as needed.
  • Prepare as much as possible in advance, and save your sanity. Decorating, table setting, food preparation: anything that can be done in advance should be done in order to make life easier just prior to and during your party.
  • To add warmth to your party, think outside the box when it comes to decorating, including table linens. Wool throws, blankets, and quilts do the job nicely and bring a touch of whimsy and interest to your decor.

We hope that these Anaheim apartment living tips help your next party turn out to be the best ever!

Our apartments near Santa Ana River also provide you with a fantastic opportunity to explore the mesmerizing beauty of Santa Ana River or relax while fishing, whenever you feel like it!

Fishing Lakes features three fishing sessions at Santa Ana River Lakes every day, seven days a week. The first session lasts between 6 am and 4 pm; the mid-day session lasts between 12:30 pm and 11 pm; and the night session takes off at 5 pm and ends at 11 pm.

You don’t even have to own a fishing license; however, you do have to pay the entrance fee, obey the rules, and respect the 5-fish limit for adults and 3-fish limit for children. At the Main Fishing Lake, the entrance fee is $23 for adults, $21 for visitors older than 62, and $11 for children between ages 4 and 12. Kids under age 4 are given free admission.

Strictly speaking, disobeying the fish limit rule, when you have no money to pay the fine of $8, is the easiest way to get into trouble. If you want to focus on teaching your kids how to fish, the Huckleberry Kids Pond with free baits, $3-rod rental services, $3-entrance fee, and no fish limit might prove to be a safer option.

If you need to pick up some fishing gear beforehand, you can also walk to the Anglers Marine. Don’t forget to contact us if you don’t have a home within walking distance of the river yet, and find out why luxury living at our apartments near Santa Ana River is the best option for you and your family!

The Bruery specializes in experimental and barrel aged beer. Every beer is made with the purest methods and simplicity in mind. Uniqueness in every process of the beer brewing process is emphasized, from the ingredients used to the actual methods. There is a tasting room in the brewery that offers guests a chance to tour the facility, meet some of the staff, and taste the different beers.

Since reopening, the establishment has focused on creating fresh beer for locals. There are many special events on the brewery’s calendar, varying from art crawls to Taco Tuesdays.

For high-quality craft brews, look no further than Noble Ale Works near the Honda Center. One of the more unique brews is Breakaway Pale Ale, a beer that incorporates orange blossom and honeydew. On-tap brews can be purchased as a sample in “Taster” size, and some can even be purchased in a 64 ounce “Growler” size.
