Where to find your container supplies? Begin with what you possess. If you explore cellars or basements, attics, garages, and sheds, you will doubtless encounter objects of interest. Old-fashioned pots and kettles, usually sold in antique shops at rural auctions or observed at old New England inns, have much attraction.
In addition to run-of-the-mill circular pots and tubs, there are modern and ultra-modern forms--square, rectangular, triangular, hexagonal, and octagonal. Also eligible are old iron kitchen pots, kettles, pails, jugs, casks, vases, crocks, jam tubs, barrels and nail kegs, Japanese fish tubs, aged sinks, bathtubs, bamboo soy tubs. There are novelty containers such as driftwood, wheelbarrows, donkey carts, spinning wheels and boxes attached to roadside mail container. There are also bird cages, decorative well heads, animal figures, and Strawberry jars. Woven baskets may be used to conceal unattractive containers. Even tar paper pots, handled by garden centers and florists, are worthy if painted or veiled to upgrade their exterior. Any of these can be used in your container gardening ideas.

Hardscaping doesn't stop there, however many hardscape design professionals will also readily draw up plans for a patio, a barbeque pit, a deck, walkways, decorative retaining walls, exotic fences and gains, and even artistic sculptures as well! The applications of hardscape design are as varied and beautiful as any live garden -- just more permanent. But don't think that hard means large -- hardscapers will just as readily put together small details in an otherwise 'soft' environment. For example, having a Japanese-style concrete lantern or a copper Foo dog set up to grace your backyard is right up a hardscapers alley.
If you begin with the landscaping, the hardscaping itself -- which can be fairly intensive- labor and equipment wise -- can damage the plants and soft terrain. For this reason, starting with the hardscaping is usually wiser.

Make use of accessories to make the shocking contrasting colour you are using explode. You could have candles, flowers or even an alarm clock, to set off the look. Don't forget about using texture, as this will bring life to the masculine quality of the grey. By using soft fleeces or cashmere and wool for the cushions and the throws, it will give more depth to the design of your room.
Ensure your bedstead is a smart tailored affair

You can have it catered, you can cook or our family favorite for our barbeque theme is hamburgers, hot dogs and heroes. Add some salads, fruit platters and a graduation themed dessert and you have an easy, inexpensive menu. We set up a "stadium" food booth near the grill. My husband and his buddies were grilling to order, with the condiments and rolls set out at the booth. You make a poster and name your area. For example, at our party for our youngest who was going to DePaul University in Chicago.. we set up the "DePaul Dug Out" and decorated the table with the school colors. For our son, who was headed to Rutgers University, we had a "Knight Stand" as their school mascot is the Scarlet Knight. For another of our parties, I bought cases of bottled water, took off the store label and made my own personalized labels celebrating the graduates!
Once you have a budget and have decided on your venue, then settle on a date and do it early. You will be competing with lots of other parties this time of year and by getting yours on the calendar first you will avoid conflicts. Next decide on invitations. You can order them online or buy them in the stores. However to save money, you can make them yourself on the computer. There are numerous invitation products available in office supply stores that will give you templates to make your own. Be creative... add graduation clipart, a logo from the college or high school of your graduate or even inset a photo! Unless you have room in your house or are having it off site, ALWAYS plan a rain date. Also make sure you have an RSVP with a date deadline and add your email as well as your phone number. A 'regrets only" RSVP system makes for tricky planning. Recently, I have even seen people use free online invitation services.

Goodie bags are perfectly sensible for scout meetings and other group activities in which games generate prizes or other accomplishments are rewarded with patches or certificates which will need to be carried home. These can be sadly lost in the confusion of large rambunctious occasions. Issuing everyone a goodie bag with a few items inside will eliminate some of this problem. Writing names on the goodie bags will also help.
Adult party guests often like to take home small items too. Sometimes these things don't include prizes as much as a sample of deserts for those at home. Goodie bags are a pretty good idea for cookie exchange parties. Each person brings a dozen cookies to a buffet table. They each collect one cookie from a dozen different plates. Plastic wrap and larger goodie bags are safe ways to transport these back home..

Size of Basement
The size of the basement is also a big factor in decided what kind of basement design you can have. If you have limited space in your basement, you cannot force yourself to have an extra bedroom downstairs if you don't enough space to build a comfortable bedroom. Small spaces need not go to waste; there are still a lot of basement ideas you could incorporate in your basement.
