2. Create your guest list with an RSVP date. Decide if you want just all women, or if children and spouses are included. If you invite couples or families, make sure they tell you how many houses they would like to decorate, because not all couples will want to decorate a house together. This is what makes the guest list important. Start your guest list with a small number of people, and see if it grows. You can always add more people later. Requesting that they RSVP by a certain date is of extreme importance. You need to have enough time to bake all the houses, so the sooner you know how many you need, the better.
6. Bake your gingerbread ahead. You can start baking your gingerbread early. This is extremely helpful, and you will be glad you did it when it gets closer to your party date. You can store your baked pieces in a Tupperware container with pieces of wax paper between the layers, and put them in the freezer. Pull the pieces out of the freezer a day or 2 before you're ready to assemble and let them thaw in the containers.
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.

The first suggestion is the easiest

The other, cheaper option is to get a freestanding deck. This is a laddered platform that stands next to the pool and has enough room for one or two people to stand. It also has a ladder the leads into the pool. There is a gate around the platform to prevent anyone from falling and injuring themselves. It also has a lock for when you don't want anyone getting in the pool while you are not there. Freestanding decks are the most inexpensive and easiest to install above ground swimming pool decks available. Anything less would be a simple A-frame ladder that fits across the pool ledge.Above Ground Pool Decks For All Kinds of Pool People
When someone decides they want to install an above ground pool seldom do their thoughts include above ground pool decks. Why? Probably because they are thinking about all the time they are going to spend in the water and lounging on a deck doesn't even cross their mind. But if you are one of those people reading this article then let me put your mind to ease now that you are probably asking yourself how much more an above ground pool deck is going to cost. Not that much more unless you want something extensive. And by extensive I mean something that reaches from the house to the deck, which would probably need to be tiered.

According to over 600 attendees, TEDxBrixton 2015 certainly lived up to its expectations. Queues formed outside the Brixton Recreation Centre before doors even opened and at 1pm our founder Stephanie Busari welcomed the audience by delivering a compelling speech.
Self-confessed ‘crush-addict’ Isabelle O’Carroll had our audience in fits of laughter discussing her theory on crushes. “Some people say that their crushes are so strong it prevents them from eating or even sleeping! But crushes can be such a powerful motivator making you change your life or a strong comforter in times of depression.”Other highlights during our third quarter included Alex Lambert’s gripping topic on creativity, ideas and technology, Inua Ellams’ insightful talk on mental health issues in men and Sabah Choudrey’s moving story on being a transgendered Muslim.
