We wouldn’t be able to put on such an incredible event if it wasn’t for the help of our sponsorship team. These guys boast a unique ability for sourcing the most suitable supporters to raise the profile of TEDxBrixton. Due to their strong experience in fundraising, they create and manage the budget, raise money from sponsors and oversee our partnerships program and live streaming venues. Their work is vital to our success and development.
We chose the theme because we believe this embodies what Brixton really is. We don’t believe in melting pots, we believe in salad bowls, mosaics and kaleidoscopes – things that allow individual elements to be part of a whole.
TEDxBrixton 2015 may be over but you can still get involved in our Ideas from Europe competition in association with the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills.

The key with grey is to choose use it as you would for any other type of neutral colour, such as magnolia or cream. There is no need to be fearful of it, as it is neutral and will site well in any room of the house. Not only that, it is a very practical colour and if you follow the latest trends you will notice it is the 'in' colour to go with.
As stated previously, grey often conjures up a masculine type room, but with the use of shape, motifs and contrasting colours, you can even create a bedroom fit for a boutique hotel. One of the key pieces is sleek bedroom furniture, with wardrobes and drawers all matching, they must always be in either a lighter colour or darker colour than the grey you are using.

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!Make Your Graduation Party One of a Kind!

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.
Every color imaginable has its place at themed birthday parties or holiday get-togethers

Still others may have to hire an experienced contractor who has the expertise to do the job. Just take note that creating pits may pose as a dangerous project. When it is not done right, fire pits can cost a large sum of money for damages. It would be advisable that you entertain several bids to do the project for you. As they compete for your business, in addition to their estimates, designs and ideas including the finish type of materials that they will use. These bids will provide you with more ideas to choose from. Just be careful about some unscrupulous bidders, who would lower the cost of the project just to win your business but they may somehow finish the project below your expectations. Still, others may not finish your stone fire pit at all and you end up hiring another to finish it. The lowest bid may not always be the best value for money.
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.

5. Pick a house design. If this is your first gingerbread house party, I suggest you keep to only 1 house design and make it a simple one. Use either an A-Frame design or a basic house design. Don't attempt anything with a second story. That's something to work up to.

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.
There are a lot of reasons why you would want to finish your basement, and finished basement ideas abound on the Internet. Take a look at that dreary old space under your house, and envision what it could look like if you added space for family activities and friends. In addition, you'll make your biggest investment, your home, worth just that much more.
