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.

One of the best parts of living in Clackamas are all the beautiful parks and open areas that are under a half-hour drive from the Sunnyside Village Apartments! This Earth Day, why not make a day out of a visit to Mount Talbert Nature Park? The forested mountain features not only fun activities and exciting wildlife, but great views as well.

The park also features a peaceful prairie and picnic areas, so relaxation is always a viable option at the park! Relaxing can also provide you with a chance to watch for native wildlife and examine local plants.

With so much to do, you will be able to return to Mount Talbert Nature Park weekend after weekend! The park is located at 10945 SE Mather Road, Clackamas, OR, just a twenty-minute drive from the Sunnyside Village Apartments in Clackamas, OR.

Easy New Year’s Resolutions to Try

resolutionsOne reason that New Year’s resolutions are hard to keep is that we try to change a whole bunch of things all at once. While it may seem tempting to make a long list of lofty goals for the year ahead, it’s important to be realistic! Here are a few easy resolution ideas to try in 2018 if you really want to stick with it.


Start a Money Jar

The good thing about using hard cash is that there’s always loose change floating about. If you can, spend the next 30 days using only cash. When you get home, place all of your extra change into a money jar. If you want to keep this up all year long, you’ll be astounded by how much extra money you have by the end of the year. What you will you use the extra money for? A new outfit? A fancy dinner with your loved one?


Get Outside

Did you know that simply being outside can help improve your mood? Make it a goal to spend at least 10 minutes outside every day! Once you’ve hit your 10-minute goal for 30 days, make it 15, 20, and so on.


Remember that a resolution doesn’t have to be grand. These are easy resolutions that you can definitely keep!

Three Reasons to Make the Sunnyside Village Apartments Your Home

Are you considering joining our Sunnyside Village community this year? We hope the following reasons will make that thought a reality:

  1. Sunnyside Village offers one, two, and three bedroom apartments featuring in-unit washers and dryers, patios or balconies, and large closets. They belong to a community with amenities like its 24-hour fitness center, a clubhouse, a pool and spa, a sundeck, and night patrolling.
  2. While you can visit Mt. Hood in just a 2-hour drive, you can enjoy it every day from home, as some of the apartments will gift you with wonderful views of the mountain.
  3. Sunnyside Village will bring you the peace of country living while still giving you access to the city. Portland, for example, is just 30-minutes away by car. Yet the complex is also wonderfully situated to provide you with access to nature. Think of High Rocks Park, by the Clackamas River, just a 16-min. drive away, and the Blue Lake Regional Park, by the Columbia River, just half an hour away in Fairview.

We look forward to having you as our neighbor. We know that your family will thrive at Sunnyside Village!

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!
