  • Layer up!

If you want to escape the chilling weather, you can wear layers of clothes to help you stay warm.

Celebrate Thanksgiving with Homemade Treats and Online Shopping

Covid 19 has created a conundrum for people in Orlando, Florida, and all over the country about the holidays this year: gather together with family and friends and risk contracting the virus or stay at home and miss out on all the traditions we’ve come to know and love? This is the year to create new traditions by staying home in your Altaire at Millenia apartment to celebrate Thanksgiving with a wonderful meal followed by online Black Friday shopping.

Cooking tips and recipes

Surprise your family this year with an over-the-top decadent Southern Thanksgiving dinner with a deep fried turkeySouthern-style dressing, and sweet potato casserole. A deep fried turkey is a Southern tradition in many states. Make your cornbread for the dressing in a cast iron skillet to give it that authentic Southern taste. Brown sugar and pecans contrast deliciously with the sweet potatoes. Revise the recipe to fit your household size, and you’ll be good to go. Just remember to make enough for leftovers so you can be feasting and celebrating at home over the long holiday weekend. To purchase the groceries for this meal, check out International Food Club.

Safety in the kitchen

It’s always important to play it safe in the kitchen, but especially now when we all need to avoid hospitals. One of the first safety measures in deep frying a turkey is to move it all outside of the kitchen. Be sure to keep the fryer away from any wooden structure, especially decks and trees. If you are incorporating little ones into the cooking, be sure to educate them on the proper way to carry a knife and to stay away from the hot surfaces.

Online Black Friday Shopping

Stores abound around Altaire at Millenia, but this year, cuddle up in pajamas and a blanket and do your shopping from the safety and comfort of your couch. Find a watch or a bracelet for the jewelry lover on your list at Tiffany’s. Surprise the chef in your life with a cookware gift from William’s-Sonoma.


2020 has been a hard year for everyone, and a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration will brighten your spirits. You won’t even have to leave Altaire at Millenia to do so. Just prepare your own meal with some delicious new recipes and tackle that Christmas shopping from your couch.

Halloween in Orlando

Halloween is going to be fantastic in 2020, if a little different. Halloween is on a Saturday, there will be a full moon, and people want to celebrate. Sure it’s 2020, so we need to social distance, wear masks of a different sort to help us stay safe, but we can still have a spooky great time. Check out these can’t miss ideas to make Halloween 2020 a hit. Atlaire at Millenia is the right place to celebrate. 

How to Decorate Your Apartment

There are so many ways to get your apartment ready for Halloween. We all know it’s important to make a good first impression and this year that’s even truer as most of us will keep trick-or-treaters at a safe distance. Set the stage. Carve creepy pumpkins with stencils and easily available templates. Decorate doors with cut-outs of ghosts, goblins, witches, and more.  Make sure the neighbors can see some colorful creatures by combining monster cut-outs and contact paper on the windows. For the inside, fairy lights, felt spiders, and glow in the dark skeletons are always hit. It’s the little things that really set the mood. Try the mirror hidden message trick, get some scotch tape and spell out a scary message on your mirror, allow the tape to set and remove. Then run some hot water to reveal hidden messages to your guests.

How to Celebrate at Home

For many of us, celebrating Halloween this year will probably have to be done at home. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to raise goosebumps at home. Start by setting the mood with Halloween baking and some apple cider. Carving pumpkins is always a hit, so each person can get involved in making their ideas come to life.

What’s Halloween without costumes? Make sure to get everyone dressed up and set up a video conferencing call with friends and family so everyone can share the scares. Set up a baby monitor on the porch, so you can have fun interacting with trick-or-treaters. Treats can be in the form of an outdoor haunted house or a video performance through your windows instead of the typical eatable delights. Movie marathons are great since you can choose movies appropriate to any age group or audience (from Goonies to Friday the 13th, there is something for everyone) and those can be shared from the comfort of your own apartment through a number of popular streaming services (Netflix Party, KAST, YouTube, Discord, Facebook, and more). 

Halloween Hotspots in Orlando

Luckily, stores are open in Orlando, so you can get what you need for Halloween. If you need costume, makeup, and decorations, there are four Spirit Halloween stores open this year in Orlando. Visit Orlando lists a variety of Halloween events available this year including the events offered at Legoland, Sea World, and Universal Studios. 

Social distancing will definitely make Halloween different this year, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a fun and safe holiday for everyone. Curbside and at-home delivery make it easier than ever to get the decorations, supplies, and costumes you need to make Halloween a hit. Don’t be afraid to get creative with some seasonal inspiring at-home celebration ideas.
