It’s Going To Be A Year of Surprises! #MR30

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

Have you ever thrown a surprise party or had someone throw one for you?

My siblings and I threw a surprise 50th anniversary party for our parents several years ago. It took a whole lot of planning, coordinating and sneaking to pull it off, but it was totally worth it!


This year Marriott Rewards® is celebrating a whole Year of Surprises in honor of their 30th birthday, and eleven lucky winners will each receive the surprise party of a lifetime!

Nominate someone you think deserves a surprise party, and share your memorable idea of what the party should be like. There are three nomination periods throughout the year:

February 1 – 28, 2014
May 1 – 31, 2014
August 1 – 31, 2014

Make your entry a good one and maybe Marriott Rewards will surprise someone you love!

  1. I have thrown one and had one thrown for me. Good surprises make me very happy!

  2. I don’t think I am a member but going to signup. I love the idea of earning free travel rewards.

  3. I threw a surprise party for my husband back in high school. I was part of a surprise for my MIL on her 50th birthday, I flew in from FL and was at the restaurant for her surprise party when she got there. No one has every surprised me, though :(

  4. I have never thrown a surprise party but I have attended one. It was fun!
