3 Halloween Safe Decorating Tips

Halloween is a scary Halloween for more reasons than the ghouls and goblins. Safety is typically the biggest concern for parents of trick-or-treaters. Young kids start roaming the streets pretty early, so even if you don’t have little one’s at home, you should begin to think about decorating in the safest manner possible. Here are some ideas.


Light up the walkway: apartments can be dark once the sun sets. Purchase a box (or two) of orange Christmas lights and decorate the walkway leading up to your door. The extra added light will stop people from tripping over objects and make them feel much safer knocking on a stranger’s door.


Wrapped candy: giving unwrapped candy like licorice or cupcakes can make parents a bit uncomfortable. Yes, most of us have the best intention, but there are millions of urban legends about razor blades in candy that make every pause. So don’t be fancy and just pass out wrapped candy.


Hide pets: this is both for the pet and trick-or-treaters. You wouldn’t want your dog to bite someone and you definitely don’t want your beloved animal to be scared by all the commotion and constant action at your door.

Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Tips

Halloween! Halloween is here. If you are up for some spookiness this October, now is the time to start decorating your apartment, here are a few tips.


Ugly nose: turn your pumpkin on its side and use the stem for an ugly nose. You can even grab a hat and turn the pumpkin into a witch.


Paint: carving can get messy. Instead, break out the paints and add a pop of color to your Halloween pumpkin. They may not be scary, but they do look great as accent pieces in your home.


Pumpkin ice bowl: if you are hosting a party, cut your pumpkin in half, clean it out and use it as an ice bowl!

3 of the Best Plant Types For Your Apartment

Adding a plant into your apartment’s décor can add a nice pop of color and highlight your overall sense of décor. The trouble with plants is that most of us are not green thumbs and get confused about the best type to use. Here is a quick look at three great plants to use in your apartment.


Snake plants: this is the perfect plant for someone who is rarely home. The snake plant can survive in the near dark, requires little water, and purifies the air.

Ponytail palm: this plant needs consistent light but very little water. You can place it on a window sill and watch it thrive with little care.

Iron plant: this plant was given its name because of its capacity for neglect. The plant has Chinese origins and needs little water or light.
