Stay at a Waterton Managed Hotel This Summer!

Hotel HallwaySummer vacations are always fun, and residents of Edgewater apartments that are managed by Waterton will find that they are more affordable, as well. That’s because Waterton offers its residents a discount this summer on stays at the hotels they manage. These hotels are under the banners of some of the top brands in the hospitality industry, so they’re sure to provide an enjoyable experience.

Where You Can Find Waterton Managed Hotels

Waterton hotels are present in several popular destinations for both vacation and business. Many are also in places that make it easy to pop in and out for any trip.

Once you disembark, taste the offerings of the city’s many restaurants or check out some of the cultural attractions.

Variety of Green Plants

6 Ways to Decorate Your Living Room for Summer

Variety of Green PlantsSummer is a great time to give your living room a fresh look, especially if you’ll be having company over. The following ideas can help you decide how to decorate your living room for the warmer months of the year.

Miniature Garden

Having some greenery in your living room during summer is the perfect way to spruce it up. All you have to do is take a tray table and arrange a variety of small plants on it. You can choose variations of the same plant, or go with completely different plants for a more eye-catching look.

Accent Pillows

These small pillows provide you with an easy way to give your living room a new look. Choose pillows in colorful tones for your couch, love seat and armchair to brighten them up. If you have solid furniture, you can choose pillows with a floral or striped patten on them.

Picture Frames

Put photos on display while adding seasonal colors to your living room with vibrant picture frames. Choose frames in a variety of bright colors rather than traditional black, silver or gold frames. Place these frames on shelves, tables and other surfaces around your living room, or arrange frames in one area for added visual appeal.

Natural Decor

Bring seasonal decor into your living room for a natural look. Fill decorative bowls with fresh fruit that’s in season, summer flowers or even pebbles or seashells. Place these on a coffee table or side table.

Area Rug

Another easy way to decorate your living room is by adding an area rug. Choose a solid-colored rug that has lighter or brighter tones, or pick a rug with a seasonal pattern, such as flowers. This rug can brighten up your living room floor, and it’s simple enough to change it when you want a new look.

Colorful Lamps

Switch heavier brass lamps on side tables with ones that have a lighter texture and color scheme. If you don’t have any tabletop lamps, adding one or two to your living room gives you more light to read and some extra color.

The living rooms in our apartments feature Brazilian tigerwood hardwood floors and oversized windows. Please contact us for more details on our available apartments in Edgewater, NJ.

Table With Food

How to Throw a Memorial Day Party at Your Apartment

Table With FoodResidents of our Edgewater apartments can enjoy throwing fun parties, in part because of access to spacious floor plans and excellent amenities. The key to a great party in your apartment is ample preparation, so follow these tips prior to Memorial Day:

Tips for Throwing a Memorial Day Get-Together

  • Limit your guest list. Too many guests could create a disturbance for your neighbors, not to mention, cramped quarters. Limit your festivities to a dozen close friends or fewer. It’ll be easier to prepare, and the clean-up will be far faster.
  • Utilize balconies. If your apartment home has a balcony, invite guests there to make the most of the sunny weather. This is a nice option for smaller gatherings, as only so many guests can hang out on the balcony at once. Otherwise, the balcony is a great place for a handful of attendees to break off and enjoy a private conversation.
  • Find oven or crock pot barbecue recipes. You can make excellent BBQ dishes with your slow cooker or in the oven. In addition, George Foreman grills are great for preparing delicious brats and hot dogs.
  • Plan ahead for amenity usage. Depending on the size of your party, it may be necessary to reserve certain locations. Otherwise, you may need to think of a time when those features won’t be busy.
  • Use the apartment as a starting point. Our conveniently-located apartments is a great place to kick off bar crawls and other fun, non-traditional Memorial Day activities. Pre-game at your apartment with a few drinks and appetizers before taking the party to another location. Your guests will enjoy switching up the scenery and you’ll have less to clean up after the fun is over.

Ready to throw an unforgettable Memorial Day bash? If you make the most of your apartment’s layout and amenities, you and your guests will have a great time. Plan your guest list carefully to ensure that all attendees are given the care and attention they deserve.

Infinity in Edgewater, NJ boasts several excellent amenities, including a resident’s lounge with WiFi and landscaped Infinity gardens with a gazebo. Contact us today to learn more.

View of Earth

5 Fun Facts About Earth Day

View of EarthEach year, Americans take a special day to think about the earth around them, and the impact their actions have on the environment. In honor of that special day, make a promise to the planet to step out of your Edgewater apartment this April 22 and make a difference for Earth Day. Whether you take action at home or head for a local event like Secaucus Mill Creek Marsh Earth Day Cleanup, you’ll be making a change for the better.

To get you excited for this important holiday, here are a few fun facts about the most eco-friendly holiday on the calendar:

Earth Day Facts

  • There have been 47 annual Earth Days since the holiday was first celebrated in 1970. That means that 1,128 hours have been collectively spent helping the earth through conservation, recycling, cleanup, and other Earth Day efforts!
  • While Earth Day started in the United States, two decades later it would turn into a worldwide celebration, and get an official name change to Mother Earth Day by the UN. Despite this change, it’s still typically referred to under its original name in the U.S.
  • Each year, Earth Day is recognized and celebrated by more than one billion people—that’s a lot of conservation awareness and power!
  • Then-senator Gaylord Nelson conceived of and implemented the very first Earth Day after seeing the destruction caused by an oil spill. Twenty-five years later, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-president Bill Clinton for his efforts.
  • On April 22, 2010, the Earth Day Network, an eco-awareness group, pledged to plant one billion trees to honor the planet. It only took them two years to realize this goal, and they celebrated success on Earth Day 2012.

While performing “green” actions on Earth Day is an excellent way to celebrate this holiday, don’t forget about the other 364 days of the year as well. Make sure your Edgewater, NJ apartment has a recycling bin, pledge to reduce waste whenever possible, and remember the impact your actions have on the planet. Your responsibility will be leaving a cleaner, greener world for future generations to enjoy.

Bowl of Strawberries

4 Recipes to Make Using Seasonal Ingredients

Bowl of StrawberriesRefreshing your meals with seasonal ingredients is one of the best ways to keep your diet interesting so you don’t end up over-indulging in the wrong kinds of foods when midnight rolls around. Spring, in particular, is all about light, bright flavors that still satisfy. It’s the perfect way to renew the resolutions you made at the start of 2017. Try one (or all 4) of these recipes for a special nod to the changing temperatures!

Spring Vegetable Stew

Cranberry beans (or fava beans if you can’t find cranberry) and lots of greens make this stew healthy and flavorful. Jump right into the spirit of spring with herbs and vegetables like asparagus, chives, chervil leaves, and zucchini, and let this starter serve as a healthy beginning to your meal.

Spring Egg Drop Soup

If you love egg drop soup but don’t love the heavy feeling you have after the last drop, this soup is definitely for you. With a lighter take on a traditional favorite, it gives you a chance to use the many kinds of garlic available this season while still giving you plenty of veggies like asparagus, peas and onions. People who eat soup before their entree tend to consume fewer calories overall—even when you account for the calories of the soup.

Balsamic Chicken With Corn and Swiss Chard

With Swiss Chard in season right about now and chicken being a light alternative to red meat any day of the week, this recipe uses mustard and balsamic vinegar to bring the dish together. It’s also simple enough to make on a weekday when you’re exhausted after work.

Strawberry Lemon Bars

Few things say spring like strawberries, and these bars are a stunning combination of tart and sweet for a big hit at any gathering. They’re easy to make, and look particularly appetizing when cut into small pieces and put in a flower petal cup.

Those who live in Edgewater apartments know the value of the mild breezes and the newly awakening flowers. If you’re looking for a fresher take on apartment living or maybe more kitchen space to whip up your spring favorites, give Infinity a call for more information about our apartments.

Duster

How to Get Ready for Spring Cleaning

DusterIt’s the right time of year for giving your home a thorough cleaning from top to bottom. If you have plans to do some spring cleaning soon, use the following tips to prepare for this task.

Tackle Spring Cleaning Tasks Methodically

Instead of randomly cleaning whatever you feel like at the moment, start at one side of a room and work your way over to the other side. You can also start at the upper parts of a room and work your way down to the lower levels if that’s easier for you. Doing these tasks methodically helps you keep track of what you’ve cleaned already.

Clean in Small Chunks of Time

Plan on setting aside smaller amounts of time for spring cleaning tasks instead of trying to clean everything in a day or two. Make a schedule that shows when you’ll be cleaning and which part of your home you’ll be cleaning each day. Doing cleaning in smaller chunks of time makes this project seem more manageable.

Buy All Supplies Beforehand

Make a list of supplies you’ll need, then head to the store to stock up on them ahead of time. When you wait until the last minute to do so, it’s easier to make excuses for not cleaning, such as not having the right supplies. Having the supplies you need and in the amounts you need means you won’t have to interrupt your cleaning to go shopping.

Get Comfortable

When you’re getting ready for spring cleaning, choose an outfit that is comfortable. Make sure that this outfit is one that you’re fine with getting dirty. Wearing comfortable clothes helps make cleaning more enjoyable.

Don’t Get Distracted

Before cleaning, put your phone, tablet and laptop away, so they won’t distract you. Having these devices around can make you feel tempted to stop cleaning for just a moment to check email or do other tasks. This can easily turn into a big waste of time that stops you from getting your cleaning done.

Our apartments in Edgewater, NJ have stainless steel appliances and porcelain bathroom tile that are easy to clean throughout the year. Contact us to learn more about our available apartments.
