CandlesFireplace Mantel Ideas for Your Home
In the olden medieval days, the fireplace mantel also known as chimneypiece, was originally meant to catch the smoke from the hearth or fireplace. Eventually, it evolved into an art form, and sometimes elaborate mantels (which would extend even to the ceiling) became the focal point of a room. Over the years, as modern heating technologies, people didn't need fireplaces anymore and they became purely ornamental. It is essential then, for any fireplace because now they are just for designs.

Having four children who graduated two years apart, I have been planning high school or college graduation parties for over a decade. The two most important pieces of advice I can offer is to set a budget and plan early. Figure out how much money you have to spend on your celebration. This is critical, as your budget will determine the number of guests you can have and the venue you will use to host your party. Many families have their parties out at restaurants, in halls or other locations. These will cost more money. With four who graduated within a 7-year span, we knew with our oldest that we couldn't set a precedent that we couldn't continue with the rest. So the idea of the "Backyard BBQ" took shape. It's easy, casual and relatively inexpensive. Plus the outdoor theme allows for a larger guest list for your graduate. Our kids invited their friends, fellow grads, teachers, coaches, and of course, all the family. We ran the graduation parties like an open house.
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!

Every color imaginable has its place at themed birthday parties or holiday get-togethers
Easter parties are the perfect place for the pink, yellow, green or blue pastel goodie bags. Christmas decorations have changed over the years to include a wider palette of colors so that goodie bags of midnight blue or even earth tones can be used to match existing decorations or tableware.

If you are a handyman, this type of project is like a walk in a park. You can turn this idea into reality - uniquely yours and you can eventually brag about your masterpiece. This project may turn out to be inexpensive as you don't have to worry about labor costs. Moreover, if you have available materials like bricks, stones, manufactured stones or stucco lying around your house, your cost to finishing the project will be almost nothing. Having the know-how of doing this one would only entail a little determination to finish the job.Stone Fire Pit Ideas - Will These Dramatically Turn Your Lifeless Backyard?

3. Plan a menu. I like to have some snack foods on hand for when people need a break from decorating. Nothing sweet! People will be snacking on their candy as they decorate their houses, so I try to put out things to cut the sweetness. Cheese and crackers, spinach dip, pizza dip, and some veggies are some easy options.

You'll be surprised at how much a finished basement will add to the value of your property. After all, it amounts to doubling the living space in your home, so instead of having a small 1,200 square foot area to work, play, and relax in, you'll end up with almost twice that. It's like buying a larger house without having to move. In addition, if you decide to sell your home, potential buyers will love the fact that the house is a lot bigger than it looks, and you'll be able to command top dollar for the property.
As children grow up, they start wanting to spend more and more time with their friends, and family togetherness gets pushed aside. When you create your new living space in your basement, make sure you do it with gatherings in mind. Provide the perfect space, and you'll find your kids, as well as their friends, spending the majority of their time hanging out there. You'll get to know all the kids so well that they'll be happy to have you spend time watching movies or playing cards with them, and you'll develop a new kind of family together time. Besides that, you'll never have to worry about where your kids are and what they're doing.

This autumn, the designs are focusing more on traditionalism. The most popular arrangements feature dried florals in contrasting colors. This makes the design an instant focal point, perfect for front doors as the color contrast draws your eye even from the street or sidewalk. For those that dislike silk florals, dried arrangements are a way to cut the cost compared to fresh arrangements and can last for years with special care.
