Many indoor hobbies add a decorative touch to your home. Apartment living is great for the amenities in the community, like those at Altaire at Millenia, but having your activities can help you decompress and enjoy your time. From plant care to candle making, fun indoor activities can also double as home decor.

Three Hobbies To Pick Up This Month

From hanging plants to succulents, there are so many choices in plants that are suitable for indoor growth. Perhaps try out your green thumb with orchids. These are beautiful, and several species are fit for new plant hobbyists. Visit an orchid supply store, like Hicks Nurseries in Orlando, to get started.

Candle making is another excellent hobby, and you can make gifts for your family and friends or even sell a few for extra cash. You can easily find supplies to make candles at a craft store or general merchandise retailer. Lastly, try taking up pilates. Unlike a typical workout regimen, pilates helps with flexibility and is perfect for practicing in your apartment.

Tips For Dedicating Space In Your Home

The great thing about plants is many of them can thrive in your kitchen or bathroom. Be sure to take note of the care instructions, and choose plants that work well with the amount of light available inside your home. Of course, you can use your patio space for potted plants and have lavish greenery growing there nearly all year long.

You can utilize your kitchen counter space and let it double as a candle factory with a few seconds of preparation for candle making. The same can be said for pilates—push your coffee table against the wall and enjoy your living room open space as your pilates studio.

Apartment Living Is Perfect For Hobbyists

Your home is just the right size to house your hobbies, from the amazing terraces to the large kitchens. Orlando is ideal for terrace plants; the great weather ensures your plants will be healthy. Finally, you can practice pilates on the patio with your plants in cooler weather and relax among your creations.

Can you smell the cozy holiday food already? Thanksgiving is an important holiday throughout the year regarding the number of guests and prep work needed. Getting your apartment ready to entertain for dinner means more than cleaning up, sprucing, vacuuming, and cleaning every room.

You have to consider what Thanksgiving plates you need to prepare, make time to buy ingredients, plan to thaw or roast your main course and organize who is bringing what dish and sides. More than likely, you will have more people than you would for your usual dinner party, so plan for enough space and room for everyone invited. If family members or other guest are making their way from out of town, prepare extra space just in case. Make it ready for overnight guests.

What’s On The Menu

You will likely be serving many of the same holiday staples that everyone enjoys on Thanksgiving. Dishes like turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and green bean casserole. Many families like to mix dishes from their specific cultural backgrounds, vegetarian dishes, food sensitivities, trendy recipes, and so on. Prepare your menu for Thanksgiving many weeks in advance. Do so to ensure you have an idea of what you’ll be preparing well before the holiday arrives.

Create A Guest List

You may be hosting the usual guests, like the years prior. Or you may even decide to extend an invitation to friends, neighbors, or anyone else. Make sure to know who will be present and help you plan the menu and seating arrangements.

Take time to give your home the last cleaning before your guest arrives the day before Thanksgiving. Tidy up common areas and prepare every room to be completely spotless.

 

Getting your Altaire at Millenia Apartment ready for Thanksgiving is no small feat. But if you follow this step-by-step list, you’ll host a Thanksgiving to remember.

However, you can quickly minimize your costs but maintain a top-notch fall decor theme by integrating transitional decor ideas without completely tearing down one setup and building another one up.

Why DIY?

When decorating your apartment living for fall, doing it yourself lets you create the perfect decor for your style. You probably have a picture of what you’d want your home to look like, so who best to embark on the project than you?

If not for anything else, consider DIY interior decor for the sense of achievement you’ll feel afterward. Nothing beats the feeling you’ll get when admiring the beautiful apartment that you transformed on your own.

Get Inspired By These Decor Ideas

Another trending decor idea is adding some color and texture to your living space. One way to go about it is updating your throw pillows by wrapping scarves around them. Consider scarves with winter colors such as black and white.
