Witches and ghouls and pumpkins, oh my! A great way to infuse your Halloween with frightfully good fun is to decorate your 85 East End apartment with some seasonal decor. For decorating ideas, check out The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze event in the Hudson Valley or visit Carl Schutz Park (just a block away) to let the colorful autumn foliage inspire you. Don't forget to put the ‘treat' in ‘trick-or-treat' this holiday season with a few tasty and delightfully spooky snacks that you can DIY at home.
Delicious Pumpkin Treats & More
Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable that can be enjoyed in many delectable ways such as a classic pumpkin pie, moist pumpkin muffins, and healthy overnight pumpkin oats. Candy apples are another holiday favorite that are easy to make at home.
An easy (and environmentally friendly!) way to boost the autumnal ambience in your home is to bring elements of the great outdoors into your apartment. A vase filled with colorful fallen leaves or a cute basket filled with apples and ornamental gourds will infuse your space with the energy of the season and are easy to toss in the compost once you're done with them – no need to store your seasonal decor for the rest of the year (a bonus for apartment living)!
Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice for Apartment Living
Once your apartment is decorated and your kitchen is filled with holiday treats, it's time to relax and watch a couple scary movies to help set the mood. If horror flicks aren't your thing, you can get cozy by lighting a pumpkin spice scented candle and reading a spooky story or poem while you snuggle under a blanket. Rest easy knowing that 85 East End has a 24-hour concierge to monitor the door for any ghosts or ghouls that may be lurking on Halloween night!
