Give Your Holiday Decorations a Texas Twist!

If you’re trying to think of some fun holiday decorating ideas for your Fort Worth apartment, there’s no inspiration like the great state of Texas.  Using decorations that celebrate your locale will be fun to put together, and they’re fun to look at!

Cowboy snowman

Add some Texas styled holiday decorations to your place!

Chili peppers are festive in any season, and since they’re red and green, they make good decor.  They also make great lights for your balcony or tree.  Chili pepper lights can be purchased at retailers such as Target.   You can also buy real red chili peppers, either fresh or dried, and tie them onto a wreath with thread.  Your front door will look both seasonal and inviting.

Instead of stockings, why not use cowboy boots? Since they’re heavy, they’d do better on the floor.   They make convenient, free-standing stockings.

The Southwestern tradition of lighting luminarias is a lovely way to warm up your balcony or mantle.  Simply put an electric tea light (available at party stores and safer than using real lit tea lights) on some gravel or sand inside a small paper bag.

Take Care of Your Outdoor Apartment Space Before Winter Hits

Take Care of Your Outdoor Apartment Space before Winter Hits

Prepare for winter by noting a few of these apartment winterizing tips.

While it may be really sad to realize, the fact is that our outdoor apartment space just can’t be used in the same during the colder months. There are plenty of things you should do to take care of the outdoor space in the apartment before winter hits; remember these!

Cushions: You need to clean up your cushions. Your cushions on outdoor furniture get and keep so much gunk all season long that cleaning them off only after the warm months may make you want to keep after them more often. Scrub these things down though before you put them in storage.

Rust: If you have aluminum or metal on your deck, you should protect these accessories from rust. Whatever it is you need to do, including moving these pieces indoors, is suggested so that they’re not all rusted out this spring.

Grill: Your grill is another area that needs to be cleaned and stored away. If you have a gas grill, you should also carefully dissemble the gas tank and stow that away where it’s going to be safe. Make sure the nozzle is fully closed before you bring it indoors.

Your Fort Worth apartment‘s patio furniture will be fine so long as you remember these tips when the mercury starts to drop!
