DIY Halloween Decoration That Transition Into Thanksgiving at Sunnyside Village


With Halloween just around the corner and Thanksgiving coming shortly after, it’s time to get inspired by decorating your cozy apartment home at Sunnyside Village. You may think it’s easier to hire someone rather than to do it yourself. However, there are interior decor ideas that you can do by yourself that will look great for the fall 2021 season.

Why DIY?

There are reasons why you would create a festive look by yourself. You can get in touch with your creative side. Think about trending decor ideas outside the box and activities you can do as a family to get ready for the holidays. Apartment living means you can’t hang anything that will be permanent, so put that into your plan. Doing Halloween and Thanksgiving projects by yourself will give you the confidence to know that you can tackle any other projects in your apartment.

Get Inspired By These Decor Ideas

Fall decor means pumpkins, creating Halloween and Thanksgiving colors such as orange, black, brown, and yellows. A great place to get inspiration before heading to the store is at your local parks or any festivities in your city. Clackamas County holds Halloween and harvest events that you can look at and even get some ideas from there.

Pumpkins are usually the common denominator for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Hobby Lobby in Clackamas, Oregon, has excellent ideas that you can create yourself. They have a wooden pumpkin welcome sign that you can hang on your front door and leave it up through Thanksgiving but don’t drill holes into your door. If there’s not a nail on the outside of your apartment door, then hang it on your doorknob.

They have light-up wooden pumpkins and leaf garland that you could put in the middle of your table. Other things can include pumpkin scented candles to make your whole place smell like pumpkin pie.

Interior Decor for the Fall 2021 Season

These Interior decor ideas are a great way to express your individuality and will be very inviting. Have you done the ideas mentioned above but something still seems to be missing? Try adding a pumpkin throw pillow or two for your furniture. This way, your fall decor will be complete.

Saint Patrick’s Day is an excellent opportunity to get out with your friends and family and celebrate all that Ireland has provided us with. And where’s the best place to celebrate the upcoming holiday? At an Irish pub! This weekend, why not visit Maher’s Irish Pub in Lake Oswego for their fourth annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival!

This year, Maher’s Irish Pub’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival will be held all weekend long, beginning each day at 11 am! Each day there will be Irish dancers, bands, and bagpipers all day long, providing entertainment for everyone. If you would like to bring any children along, make sure to bring them in the afternoon because once the sun goes down it is adults only! In addition to the entertainment and other activities, Maher’s will be serving up what they do best: traditional Irish food and drink! Regulars highly recommend the Saint Patrick’s Irish Meatloaf or the Guinness Irish Stew. But make sure to save room for the Bailey’s Chocolate Cheese Cake!

What are you waiting for? Make a plan to attend Maher’s Irish Pub’s Fourth Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Festival this weekend! Maher’s is located at 352 B Avenue, Lake Oswego, OR 97034, just twenty minutes from the Sunnyside Village Apartments in Clackamas, OR.

Get Ready for Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during your much-needed break from work.

If you’re the outdoorsy type who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of noisy city life, there’s always the beautiful Mount Talbert Nature Park! Perched on top of extinct volcanoes, there are incredibly tall trees surrounding the four miles of trails. It’s also not uncommon to see deer, woodpeckers, and other wildlife during your trek in the woods. Take a rest in one of the many picnic areas for a bite! If you’re wanting to stay indoors instead, check out the Aquatic Park in North Clackamas. Completely indoors away from the elements, you can take the family for a swim! There’s surfing, swimming, slides, plus more!

From all of us here at Sunnyside Village apartments, we hope you have a very fun and safe holiday weekend!
