I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I have a love for surprise parties. I feel like surprise parties might be the most fun parties that ever existed. I see it as a time to recognize someone and celebrate their greatness, whether it be for their birthday, a big milestone in their life or just a party to say “Hey, we appreciate YOU.”

I’ve thrown many surprise parties and once someone even threw one for me. It was so memorable and a time I will never forget. One surprise party that I threw was for my friend Kate’s birthday. She knew that we were going out that night but she had no idea that I would have all of our closest friends waiting at my apartment to surprise her.  I caught the expression on her face as she arrived.

Surprise Party Expression!

Isn’t that priceless? That was a night to remember. It was so much fun to not just celebrate her birthday but to see all the time and energy spent to plan her party to be a complete success. She was happy and loved it, which meant the world to me!

You have the opportunity to give a surprise party to someone who deserves it with Marriott Rewards®. They are celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a YEAR of surprises. I am more than excited about this campaign they are hosting because anyone can nominate a loved one!  Do you have someone in mind that you would like to nominate? Please be sure not to reveal who they are in your post because if you happen to win, it has to be a complete surprise!

To enter, you dont have to be a Marriott Rewards member but if your nominee gets chosen, you will both have to register. Why not create one now and not have to worry about it later?  Create your account at then head over to You’ll be able to nominate anyone that you think deserves a surprise, maybe your mom who is celebrating a BIG birthday or your friend who is graduating. No matter what the occasion, if you think they are deserving of a surprise party, then nominate them!

The first round of nominations for Year of Surprises takes place February 1 to February 28. Nominations will be reviewed based on creativity/uniqueness of entry, overall appeal of nomination essay, and feasibility of the surprise party. Three winners will be awarded and announced in March and parties will be scheduled each month throughout the year. There will be a total of three nomination periods throughout 2014. The second nomination period is during the month of May, and the third is during the month of August. Limit one (1) entry per person/email address per nomination period. My motto is to enter many contests because you can’t win if you don’t enter.

Tell me who you would nominate and why!

    What a fun idea! We have been Marriot Rewards members for years and love collecting and using our points. Now I am going to have to think about who would be a good fit for this and nominate.

    What a great way to surprise someone! I love that Marriott is doing this! We haven’t been a Rewards member before (I didn’t realize how many of the places we stay are under their corporate umbrella (TownPlace, Courtyard, SpringHill, etc)), so it’s definitely something we’ll benefit from – Thanks!
