add DateUtils in your uses clause and  call this function for any date

procedure TForm1.DrawDatesInGrid(ADateTime: TDateTime);
const
  DayNames: array[1..7] of string = ('Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thur', 'Fri', 'Sat');
var
  i, noofdays, d, rowno, colno, rowcount: integer;
  firstday: TDateTime;
begin
  for I := 1 to 7 do
    StringGrid1.Cells[i, 0] := DayNames[i];

  colno := DayOfWeek(StartOfTheMonth(ADateTime));
  rowcount := WeekOfTheMonth(EndOfTheMonth(ADateTime)) + 1;

  noofdays := DaysInMonth(ADateTime);
  d := 0;
  rowno := 1;

  while rowno <= rowcount do
  begin
    while colno < 8 do
    begin
      Inc(d);
      StringGrid1.Cells[colno, rowno] := IntToStr(d);
      inc(colno);
      if d = noofdays then
        Exit;
    end;
    colno := 1;
    inc(rowno);
  end;
end;

//for current month call
DrawDatesInGrid(Now)

You need to set the grids row and column count

procedure TForm1.DrawDatesInGrid(ADateTime: TDateTime);
const
  DayNames: array[1..7] of string = ('Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thur', 'Fri', 'Sat');
var
  i, noofdays, d, rowno, colno, rowcount: integer;
  firstday: TDateTime;
begin
  colno := DayOfWeek(StartOfTheMonth(ADateTime));
  rowcount := WeekOfTheMonth(EndOfTheMonth(ADateTime)) + 1;

  //set the grid rows and column count
  StringGrid1.ColCount := 8;
  StringGrid1.RowCount := rowcount;
  for I := 1 to 7 do
    StringGrid1.Cells[i, 0] := DayNames[i];

  noofdays := DaysInMonth(ADateTime);
  d := 0;
  rowno := 1;

  while rowno <= rowcount do
  begin
    while colno < 8 do
    begin
      Inc(d);
      StringGrid1.Cells[colno, rowno] := IntToStr(d);
      inc(colno);
      if d = noofdays then
        Exit;
    end;
    colno := 1;
    inc(rowno);
  end;
end;

What about a free component called TJvDays from the JEDI VCL.
It comes with a good example.

For coloring or to add a bitmap, use CellCustomDraw of the grid

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, Grids, DateUtils, ComCtrls, ImgList;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    StringGrid1: TStringGrid;
    Button1: TButton;
    ImageList1: TImageList;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
      Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
  private
    FDateTime: TDateTime;  //selected date so we know what month the calendar is for
    procedure DrawDatesInGrid(ADateTime: TDateTime);
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  DrawDatesInGrid(Date);
end;

procedure TForm1.DrawDatesInGrid(ADateTime: TDateTime);

begin
  FDateTime := ADateTime;

  colno := DayOfWeek(StartOfTheMonth(ADateTime)) - 1;  //grid starts at 0
  rowcount := ((DaysInMonth(ADateTime) + colno) div 7) + 2;

  //set the grid rows and column count
  StringGrid1.FixedCols := 0;
  StringGrid1.ColCount := 7;
  StringGrid1.RowCount := rowcount;
  for I := 0 to 6 do

  rowno := 1;

  while rowno <= rowcount do
  begin
    while colno <= 6 do
    begin
      Inc(d);
      StringGrid1.Cells[colno, rowno] := IntToStr(d);
      inc(colno);
      if d = noofdays then

  if dd = 0 then
    Exit;

  if (ACol = 0) and (ARow > 0) then
  begin
    // red for Sunday
    SG.Canvas.Brush.Color := clRed; //your colour
    SG.Canvas.FillRect(Rect);
    // Add the date in white
    SG.Canvas.Font.Color := clWhite;
    SG.Canvas.TextOut(Rect.Left + 2, Rect.Top + 2, IntToStr(dd));
  end;

  //need to know if it is todays date
  if (MonthOf(FDateTime) = MonthOf(Date)) and (DayOf(Date) = dd) then
  begin
    // Fill rectangle with your colour
    SG.Canvas.Brush.Color := clSkyBlue;
    SG.Canvas.FillRect(Rect);
    // Next, insert the date
    SG.Canvas.Font.Color := clBlack;
    SG.Canvas.TextOut(Rect.Left + 2, Rect.Top + 2, IntToStr(dd));

    {to add an image to the grid, easier way is to use ImageList
    ImageList1.Draw(SG.Canvas, Rect.Left, Rect.Top, dd); //dd will be the image index for that day
    }
  end;
end;

end.
