Hot Fall Apartment Decorating Tips

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Abberly Green Apartment Homes in MooresvilleLabor Day marked the unofficial end of summer. Although we’re sad to see it go, we can’t wait for the aromas of pumpkin pie, the crunch of leaves under our feet and all the beautiful colors of fall. As this new season arrives, there’s no better time to be inspired by the latest seasonal apartment decorating trends. Let’s take a look at some of the most sought-after designs!

New Neutrals: Autumn is known for its bright hues of yellow, orange and red. As noted by HGTV, colors and contrast are giving way to neutrals this season. Going colorless provides the opportunity to really experiment with rich textures and fun shapes. And layering similar neutral tones on top of each other is an easy way to let your creativity flow!

Pumped About Pumpkins: Nothing says fall like pumpkin – whether it’s the mounds of pumpkins outside the stores or the pumpkin spice lattes brewing in our favorite coffee houses. But did you know pumpkins are an easy item to use for decorating? Country Living says that you can incorporate a pumpkin as a centerpiece at your next gathering. Try adding a lace doily to brighten it up or decorate it with fall foliage. The décor possibilities are endless!

Supersize It: Chunky sweaters. Cozy scarves. Big coats. Autumn is known for its oversized fashion items and the trend is also inspiring home and apartment décor. This fall you can expect to see oversized everything! Make your apartment or home feel extra cozy with chunky knit blankets and pillows, large comfy chairs and super-sized wall-art.

It’s how you live that matters and love being able to provide you with simple yet beautiful décor inspirations for your apartment in Mooresville, NC. We hope these ideas will help you make the most of the season and feel more at home.

Hurricane Preparedness for North Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Abberly Green Apartment Homes in MooresvilleAs Hurricane Florence continues on its path towards the North Carolina coast, state emergency officials say it is never too early for residents to start developing family emergency plans.

Now is the time to review your emergency plans, not later when this storm is on our doorstep. Florence is a threat well beyond our coast.

The latest National Hurricane Center projections show that Hurricane Florence, which ramped up to a Category 4 storm with winds around 130 mph midday Monday, could slam into North Carolina.

According to North Carolina Emergency Management, state residents should do the following to get ready before a hurricane:

  • Build an emergency kit.
  • Make a family communications plan.
  • Know your the routes you need to leave your home (evacuation routes). Locate your local emergency shelters.
  • Closely watch/listen to the weather reports. Listening every hour as the storm nears.
  • Put fuel in all vehicles and withdraw some cash from the bank. Gas stations and ATMs may be closed after a hurricane.
  • If authorities ask you to leave, do so quickly.
  • If you leave (evacuate), be alert to flooded or washed-out roads. Just a few inches of water can float a car.
  • Keep a photo I.D. that shows your home address. You will need it when asking police if it is okay for you to re-enter your area or home.
  • Secure your property.
  • Bring inside all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.
  • Cover windows with permanent storm shutters or board up windows with 5/8-inch plywood, cut and ready to install. Tape does not stop windows from breaking.
  • Put in straps or extra clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will lower roof damage.
  • Trim trees and shrubs around your home, so they are more wind resistant.
  • Clear clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  • Reinforce garage doors. If wind enters a garage it can cause dangerous and expensive structural damage.

Emergency Kits

According to ready.gov, every emergency preparedness kit should have the following items:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food (canned food, baby food, Granola bars, energy bars)
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

Other suggested items to have in your kit include:

  • Red bandana (in case you need to signal for help)
  • Pet supplies (leashes, pet food, medicines, kennel or crate)
  • Medications for family members
  • Eye drops
  • Dry socks
  • Cash
  • Sleeping bags/blankets
  • Writing supplies
  • Books/Games
  • Emergency Contact information/documents
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Waterproof matches/fire starter
  • Insect repellent/sunscreen

Don't Forget Pets

The American Veterinary Medical Association urges pet owners also remember their pets when preparing emergency supplies and offers these tips:

Food and Medicine

  • 3-7 days' worth of dry and canned (pop-top) food
  • Two-week supply of medicine
  • At least 7 days' supply of water
  • Feeding dish and water bowl
  • Liquid dish soap

First Aid Kit

  • Anti-diarrheal liquid or tablets
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandage tape and scissors
  • Cotton bandage rolls
  • Flea and tick prevention (if needed in your area)
  • Isopropyl alcohol/alcohol prep pads
  • Latex gloves
  • Saline solution
  • Towel and washcloth
  • Tweezers
  • Sanitation

Planning the Perfect Panthers Tailgate

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 06, 2018

Abberly Green Apartment Homes in MooresvilleFor Carolina Panthers fans who live in our apartments in Mooresville, NC, the arrival of fall doesn’t just mean a break in the humidity, the return of seasonal beers and the chance to bundle up in cozy flannels again; it also means it’s time again to spend your weekends cheering on your team. Planning the perfect tailgate to enjoy it all is essential.

The Food

Football and barbecue are about as American a combination as you can get. Plus, a feast full of pork is fitting since you’ll be watching the pigskin get tossed around. Start with a spread from Midwood Smokehouse. In the South, no tailgate is complete without fried chicken, so you’ll want to consult Charlotte’s legendary go-to: Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits for the Jumbo Tailgate package. And don’t forget the universal language of football: chicken wings. Whisky River is famous for its signature wings. Looking to man the grill yourself? Pick up savory steaks and gourmet meats ready for firing at Meat & Fish Co. Of course, we’d be remiss to skip dessert. Pile a plate high with Amelie’s French Bakery’s adorable Panthers-themed macarons and load a tiered platter with blue and black paw print cupcakes from Publix.

The Drinks

The ultimate tailgate requires an expert rotation of chilled beverages on hand. For spirit-free and kid-friendly beverages that hit the spot, opt for Bojangles’ sweet tea, which already comes with your Jumbo Tailgate meal, or Midwood Smokehouse’s lemonade. For something a little stronger, swing by NoDa Brewing Company and grab a pack of Jam Session to go. NoDa has also partnered with The Roaring Riot Panthers Fan Club to create a new rye pale ale named after the group. Members of Brewpublik, the Charlotte beer-delivery startup, can even have cold ones personally delivered to their tailgates if arranged at least a day in advance and for a group of 15 or more. On a budget? Don’t forget about Bud Light’s special Panthers cans, which come emblazoned with the famous feline we all know and love.

The Games

You’ll also want to have your lawn games ready for action. Plus, once you’re done chowing down it’s probably not a bad call to get up and move a little. What better way to burn off some calories than challenging your fellow fans to a game of cornhole? For the avid fan, a true gameday game session should include Panthers-themed boards and bean bags to keep your team spirit firing on all cylinders. For more ways to get your group up and moving and keep the adrenaline pumping, pick up a ladderball toss game set or a washer toss kit and let the fun—quite literally—fly.

Tailgating has become increasingly popular throughout the country and especially so in the Southeast during football season.

To make sure you get the perfect spot, city parking websites, like preferredparking.com, e-zparking.net and parkcharlotte.com, allow you to reserve parking or tailgating spots.
