How do you transform a dark, bare and cold church basement into a wonderful place to celebrate the end of eight years of elementary school? Grade Eight students needed a basement makeover for their graduation day, so we transformed it into a classy, fun and special place for their graduation dinner. The green, white and black colour scheme makes it look fresh and formal at the same time. The black and white candies as a favour for the guests were a great hit! Lots of twinkly lights, throw pillows on the extra long pews, low hanging white lanterns and artwork on the wall all helped to make this space both warm and welcoming for students and guests.
