When many think of grey, an image of a cloudy rainy day emerges and glumness spills in. The thought of putting grey into a bedroom make create these images, or the image of a very masculine bedroom with little in the way of soft furnishings and a lot of hard edged bedroom furniture. However, this article will show that grey is a great colour to have when used in the right way.
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.
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.
It saves time if the participants are all given a name tag to fill at the beginning of the meeting or party which they can stick onto their own goodie bag.Also if lots of different colors are used and children are allowed to choose their own it helps them locate their own later when things start getting more active.
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.
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.

Make sure you have a fair idea about the size of the gazebo you are going to build. Don't try to fit a huge gazebo into a small piece of land. This will end up making you backyard look crowded and will actually decrease the beauty of the landscape. If availability of land is not a problem, then you should base your decision of size, on the purpose of the gazebo. If you are thinking of holding parties inside the gazebo, it is better to allow as much space as possible. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be more private then you may be happier with a smaller size. Make sure you gazebo plans have accurate measurements of all dimensions of the gazebo.
It is crucial that the land on which you are planning to build the gazebo is exactly level. If this is not the case, then make the ground level by using concrete and dirt. You can also build a deck to give the gazebo a more solid base. Discuss the foundation depths with you local building authorities before beginning construction to avoid problems later.
