Computer(s) and screen(s) and keyboard(s) and joystick(s) and software for astronomy or space travel running on them. A video projector or large flat screen TV with computer images might be neat.
Painted white cardboard or foamcore board with a shape other than familiar rectangular. Slant sides, sharp angles (corners that are safe, though) and an overhead console would add to the impression.
A modern pilot’s chair like I. Miller or Saarinen or Eames

Question by : Where are some places that churches buy their modern furniture because i am looking to decorate a youth room?
I am looking for modern, new age, and fairly inexpensive.

Do a Google or yellow pags search in your area for “contract furniture” or “institutional furniture”. Don’t expect it to be very inexpensive. Compared to furniture for a family home, items for a church or youth center or other public usage are have to be made to withstand more abuse and heavy usage
.
The best way to get quality items for a good price is to find a place that sells used and reconditioned institutional furniture — they often get it from businesses or hotels that have shut down or that have remodeled. Look up “used office furniture” to find local dealers.

If there is a ReStore in your city (the recycled furniture and building supply outlets of the Habitats for Humanity homebuilders organization) they are often a great source for such items. The one in my town recently had dozens of modern upholstered couches, chairs, coffee and end tables and well as some really cool work station-like desks. Some could have used new fabric covering but you can pay to have that replaced pretty reasonably at upholstery shops. And the sofas were only $ 30 and the chairs were $ 10 so even paying for new fabric would have made them a bargain.

Also, if there is an IKEA store in your region they have very inexpensive and modern stylish furnishings. Some of their cheapest styles might not hold up to a lot of abuse, however.

How to decorate a church for a baby shower?

Question by daretapp: How to decorate a church for a baby shower?
I am hosting a baby shower for my girlfriend. A friend has offered the use of his church for a great price. After looking at the church, which was a building converted into a church, I do like the space and openess but, the only drawbacks is that there is some religious pictures on the walls, a big cross and alter at the front. What would you do? If I do take it how could i decorate it. Would it offend some to be in a church? Any help would be appreciated. Especially decorating tips.

Answer by Jackie
i cant say i would think it offensive to have it in a church, but i do not know the people invited. go to a party supply store, there are lots of cute shower decorations out there! Also, google how to make a diaper cake, those are very cute for showers, I have also seen them done with baby towels and washcloths. good luck!

Potted plants and flowers. Buy items from Home Depot or Lowes and then put a ribbon or something around the pots or wrap them in a colorful celaphane (the kind they wrap Easter baskets in). They are cheap and give a lot of impact. At the end of the reception announce that people can take them home if they would like.
