Branching Out

There are many other ways to style a calendar in addition to the methods used in this project. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Another possibility when styling the smaller calendar is to put borders between rows instead of boxing in all the cells and centering the dates within their cells.
  2. You can visually distinguish the recurring events in the larger calendar by giving them a slightly different style than nonrecurring events. Color and font changes are the easiest to implement without upsetting the overall design, but it might also be useful to set a border or background color.
  3. Try rewriting the style sheet for the larger calendar to reflect another seasonal or holiday theme. Manipulating the colors and adding in a few appropriate graphics is all that's really necessary. For example, you could create a Halloween theme using orange and brown or a wintry look with snowflakes in the background. Be creative!
