Moving and Unpacking: How to Set Up Your TV in Your New Home

Relocating often poses unique challenges, particularly when it comes to packing, moving, and setting up your belongings in a new home. One such challenge is securely shipping your television and setting it up in your new abode. This article provides an in-depth guide to efficiently moving your TV and setting it up in your new home.

Securing Your TV for the Move

Your TV is likely one of your most significant investments. It makes sense to give it the attention it deserves when moving. TV shipping must be handled carefully, as the screen is prone to damage. Acquire a high-quality, sturdy box of the correct size. Ideally, if you still have the original box, use that as it provides the best protection. If you’re looking for help moving your television, consider hiring professional movers who can secure your TV correctly. All cables and accessories are to detach and pack them separately.

Shipping Your TV

Regarding TV shipping, you might be tempted to lay the TV flat, but this can lead to damage. It’s better to keep the TV upright, the way it’s designed to stand. Use sturdy packing materials to prevent any movement inside the box. Shock-absorbing bubble wrap can be an excellent choice here. Remember to mark the box as fragile to ensure it is handled carefully during the move.

Setting Up Your TV in Your New Home

Once your TV has arrived at your new home, you’re now faced with setting it up. Here are some steps you can follow:

Identify the ideal spot for your TV. Think about where you want your TV. Ideally, it should be at eye level when seated and avoid areas with direct sunlight or glare.
Connect all the cables and accessories. Remember those labels you created while packing? They will come in handy now. Connect each cable and accessory to its designated spot on the TV.
Power it on. Check to ensure the TV is working correctly and a signal is coming from your cable or streaming service.
Set up the Wi-Fi connection. If you have a Smart TV, the next step is to connect to your Wi-Fi. Enter your network ID and password when prompted.
Update and customize your settings. Most TVs require a quick software update upon the first setup. After updating, customize your picture and sound settings to your liking.

In Conclusion

Moving can be tense, but with the right planning and a little patience, you can ensure a smooth transition for your TV. TV shipping and setting up doesn’t have to be complicated. Following the above tips will help you easily secure, ship, and set up your TV in your new home.

Remember, the beasiestest way to protect your investment is by preparing for your move and setting up your TV correctly. Doing so lets you sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite shows in your new home sooner rather than later. Happy viewing!

Celebrating National Men’s Health Month

It is National Men’s Health Month, and we are here to celebrate! With Father’s Day fast approaching, we tend to think about the amazing men in our lives, and how grateful we are for them – and how we would love to keep them around as long as possible!  So it’s a good time to focus on what the men in our lives are doing about their health – or not doing. So many men get too busy with the hustle and bustle of daily life, that they tend not to focus on eating right, exercising, or working to prevent disease.

One way to help with that is vitamins and minerals. I know I have a drawer and shelf full of the vitamins and supplements my body needs to help improve my health, and prevent future diseases. But what about the man in your life? Superior Source Vitamins are unique – as they are clean, pure & simple!

Superior Source Vitamins are MicroLingual® and dissolve on or under the tongue in seconds for quick absorption into the body – NO pills to swallow or water needed! They use only clean ingredients – the way nature intended!

  • Clean, pure and simple – the way nature intended!
  • NO chemicals, GMOs, preservatives, excessive binders, dyes, fillers or artificial colors.
  • Fast dissolving for quick absorption.
  • NO pills to swallow or water needed!
  • Tiny Microlingual® tablets – easy to take.
  • Trusted brand – Made in the USA
  • Making vitamin supplements for over 50 years.

The owner of Superior Source Vitamins , Ron Beckenfeld, as a young man was into fitness, always working out and wanting to stay healthy. Finding the right vitamins seemed like the perfect fit to him when deciding to go into business.

Ron started selling vitamins out of the trunk of his car in 1964 and in 1969 he started Continental Vitamin Company; it became a life-long passion to establish a supplement company that cares about health.

In 1998 he started Superior Source MicroLingual® due to his concern about his father’s Parkinson’s condition.  “When my father developed Parkinson’s, he already had a heart condition.  I realized he had problems swallowing traditional large tablets, which inspired me to find a way to help my dad and others who had similar problems swallowing the vitamins they needed.”

“My dad had nitroglycerine tablets, which are very small and dissolve instantly, and he asked me why I couldn’t make vitamins like these.  This was the “ah-ha!” moment that started the evolution of instant dissolving tablets, and Superior Source was born.”

“I was also concerned about all the additives and excessive amount of other ingredients found in conventional vitamin tablets, so decided to create a vitamin that was small and pure where potency isn’t lost in the high acid environment of the stomach.”

Ron started with a B-12 quick-dissolving soft-molded tablet and continued to develop an entire line of clean and pure MicroLingual® instant dissolve tablets where users didn’t have to worry about swallowing.

“So here I am 50+ years later, still passionate and profoundly providing people with vitamin tablets that are easy to take anywhere with no water necessary and absorbed quickly into their systems.”

Manufacturing Superior Source Vitamins in our family-owned facility, I felt extremely fortunate to have many associates who have been here since the beginning. We are a company built from a love for health, wellness, fitness, nutrition, and the need for a healthy and better life and continue to create new products to help all reach those goals.

Death by Chocolate Trifle

The Best Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert

I made this Death by Chocolate Trifle recipe for Thanksgiving, and it was such a big hit, I think I’m going to make it again for Christmas! It’s a bit lighter of dessert, not so dense of a feeling after you eat which makes it even more enjoyable after a day filled with eating! My Summer Strawberry Trifle is also a big hit, if you aren’t a chocolate fan.

How to Make Death by Chocolate Trifle
This is super easy to make, and seriously delicious. I actually think I might get another trifle bowl so I can make a double batch next time. Feel free to change up the chocolate cake for brownies (for a richer dessert) or angel food cake.

Some people also like to use chocolate pudding instead of mousse, or  different types of candy bars. I prefer it the way I have it listed below and so do my kids and most of my family. Enjoy!



  • 4 boxes chocolate mousse mix
  • 1(8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix (or your own cake recipe)
  • 6 Heath candy bars, chopped (or Heath toffee bits )


  1. Prepare cake mix as directed, or make your own chocolate cake recipe.
  2. Let cool.
  3. Prepare the mousse.
  4. Crumble the cooled cake into pieces.
  5. In a glass trifle bowl (or if you are taking it for a potluck, or somewhere that you’re unsure if you’ll get it back, try a clear plastic trifle bowl) layer in this order: 1/3 of cake, 1/3 of mousse, 1/3 of whipped topping and 1/3 of candy bars.
  6. Repeat layers ending with chopped candy bars on top.
  7. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

Edit: A lot of people have been asking how well this holds up as far as leftovers go – yes, the death by chocolate trifle dessert is actually really good the next day – or the next day – or the next. Store in a Rubbermaid container (it won’t look as pretty, but I promise it will taste just as good!)

DIY Custom Wallpaper Give the Nursery a Unique Touch

You want your baby’s nursery to be special, a space that reflects their unique personality even before they develop one. Why settle for generic store-bought wallpaper when you can design
custom wallpaper to give the room a personal touch? Creating DIY custom wallpaper for the nursery is easier than ever and allows you to incorporate designs featuring your baby’s name, favorite animals, or one-of-a-kind illustrations. The options are endless when you tap into your creativity. Follow these tips to make over the nursery walls with custom wallpaper and give your little one a space they’ll love as much as you do.

Choose a Theme Based on Your Baby’s Interests

Choosing a theme for your baby’s nursery wallpaper based on their interests will make the space extra special. Think about your little one’s favorite animals, colors, books, or toys to come up with inspiration for a custom design.

Animals: If your baby loves elephants, lions or penguins, have wallpaper printed with cute cartoon versions of their favorite animals. You can even include their name or initials on the design. This is a great option for either gender and will spark their imagination as they grow.
Colors: A color theme is simple but sweet. Pick two or three colors your baby seems to prefer and have wallpaper printed with stripes, dots, or other patterns in those shades. As an added touch, choose a wallpaper border in a contrasting color to frame the top of the walls.
Books: Bring their favorite storybook characters to life on the walls. Have wallpaper printed with illustrations from books like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See or any other childhood classics. This whimsical option will inspire a lifetime love of reading.
Toys: If your baby has a favorite toy like blocks, stuffed animals or a play gym, have wallpaper printed with a pattern inspired by their beloved plaything. Not only will it tie in with the decor you already have in the nursery, but it will give them familiarity and comfort in their space.

With custom wallpaper featuring a theme your little one loves, their nursery will become a place they feel happy, stimulated and secure. And the memories you make in that special space will last forever.

Add Your Baby’s Name or Monogram for a Personalized Look

Adding your baby’s name or monogram to the nursery wallpaper is a personal touch that will make the space uniquely theirs. Custom wallpaper designs with names or initials are popular and meaningful, especially in a baby’s first room.

To create custom name wallpaper, you have a few options. You can design your own using wallpaper or mural software and have it printed, or work with an Etsy seller who specializes in custom nursery wallpaper. Provide the baby’s full name, initials, or a favorite nickname and choose a font, color scheme, and pattern that matches your nursery theme. For a rustic look, opt for a distressed font. For a whimsical nursery, pick a fanciful script.

Another idea is to incorporate the name within a mural, such as painting it on the wall or having wall stickers made to spell out the name. You can also do a DIY stencil and paint the name yourself. Whatever method you choose, be sure to measure the wall space first so you get the size and placement just right.

Adding wallpaper, a mural or stenciled name to the nursery is a project you’ll appreciate for years to come. Not only will it give the room a custom, handcrafted feel, but it will create special memories of this exciting time preparing for the baby. Your little one will also surely love gazing up at their name on the wall as they drift off to sleep in their cozy new room.

Feature Your Baby’s Favorite Animals or Toys

What does your little one love? Incorporating their favorite animals, toys or characters into custom wallpaper is a great way to personalize their space.

Search online for illustrations or clip art of things like teddy bears, bunnies, elephants or toy cars and trucks. Many are available for free or you can commission an artist on Etsy to create custom designs for you.
Have the images printed on peel-and-stick wallpaper or traditional wallpaper. Peel-and-stick is very DIY-friendly but traditional wallpaper may last longer.
For a cute motif, arrange multiple images of the same animal or toy in a pattern. Or, create a whole scene with different characters and objects for a whimsical, storybook feel.
Include your baby’s name or initials in the design. For example, have their name spelled out in wooden blocks or Scrabble tiles held by the characters.
Don’t forget to consider the scale of the images in relation to the size of the wall. Large-scale designs can make a big impact but may be too stimulating for a small space. Aim for a good balance of empty space and images.

Custom wallpaper featuring your baby’s beloved animals, toys or other familiar images is a special, memorable touch that they are sure to enjoy for years to come. As they grow, the wallpaper may inspire imaginative stories and play. And for you, it will bring back fond memories of this precious time.

When your little one transitions to a “big kid” room, you can incorporate their latest interests into new custom wallpaper. Or, you may find it hard to part with the original and want to find a way to preserve a section of it. Custom wallpaper in the nursery is a design choice you’ll never regret.

Bottom Line

Custom wallpaper is a simple DIY project that allows you to put your personal stamp on the space and surround your baby with designs that are meaningful to your family. Whether you choose to design something from scratch, modify a pre-made pattern, or collaborate with an artist, custom nursery wallpaper is a creative way to welcome your bundle of joy into the world and give them a space that is uniquely theirs. The effort you put into crafting a custom look for the nursery will make the space extra special for years to come.
