Super Bowl Sunday is a fine excuse to throw a great party. You and your guests can cheer on a favorite team, laugh together at outrageous Super Bowl commercials and last but not least, catch up while enjoying the all-important food and drink. Follow these tips to plan a fun, casual Super Bowl Party: Make your guest list and invite your friends with a football-themed e-vite. They can RSVP and get maps to your home online. Purchase football-themed party goods and decorations at a party supply store. Pick up napkins, plates, cups, streamers, etc in your team’s colors. If you are on a tight budget, concentrate your decorating on the table where the food will be served. Prepare the Chili Boats with Fixin’s the day before the Super bowl and simply re-heat. These savory chili boats are tempting because guests can cu... More

Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili... More

Where do you pay bills? In a recent survey of my newsletter readers, 43% said they pay bills in their home office/study/den and 45% said they pay bills in the kitchen, living room, dining room or bedroom (the remaining 12% pay bills outside the home). Having a designated home office space makes it simpler and easier to handle incoming mail and paperwork, organize bill paying, and manage your household. But what if you don’t have an entire room that you can dedicate for your workspace? In many homes, the kitchen or dining room table does double duty as a home office. The biggest hitch with this solution is that papers tend to accumulate on the table, leaving nowhere for the family to eat!  It’s not just you who needs to pay bills and manage mail; your children also need a place to do their homework. What if ... More

I was just reading the latest issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine and noticed that January is National Puzzle Month.  Who knew?  For the life of me, I can't find any information regarding who actually declared this celebration or started it, but I'll go along with it.  (If you know the background, leave us a comment and please share!) Personally, I LOVE jigsaw puzzles.  In fact, my husband and I put one together every year as part of our Christmas traditions.  This year was no different.  I set up my Lifetime card table and Lifetime folding chairs in our living room and we started our masterpiece.  This was my first year using our new Lifetime card table for our annual puzzle tradition and it worked great.  The Lifetime card table is extra big (37" compared to mos...

Lifetime Wheelbarrows makes light work of big projects
Look out the window, spring is here time to get digging, planting, transplanting, and hauling wait, hauling? Yup, youre going to have to move all that compost, all those pavers and blocks, potted shrubs, soil, bags of fertilizer, mountains of mulch the list goes on and on, but it all needs to be done, and lets face it, packing it my hand just isnt a viable option! Thats where wheelbarrows come in to play. Sometimes called a garden cart or garden wagon, a wheelbarrow fills a much needed role in any backyard or landscaping project. Wheelbarrows help carry more per load, and help carry even very heavy items. But thats where traditional wheelbarrows fall short. Traditional wheelbarrows typically have one wheel at the front of the basket, leaving you to life the weight of the load on the pivot point of the wheel. Sure, its easie...
Here A Table, There A Table, Everywhere A Lifetime Table!
Even after being part of the Lifetime team for nearly 10 years now, I still get a little giddy every time I see a Lifetime table when Im out and about. This past weekend, I was practically jumping up and down when my husband and I went to an outdoor concert at Whitewater Amphitheatre in New Braunfels, Texas. Whitewater is appropriately named because it is nestled amongst the trees in the Texas hill country on the banks of the bubbly Guadalupe River. It is an absolute picturesque setting for enjoying concerts in the summer evenings under the stars. As soon as we walked into the facilities, I was greeted by Lifetime banquet tables at the ticket entrance and in the merchandise area where they were selling concert t-shirts and souvenirs. However, my real excitement came as I walked a few steps further and saw nearly 50 Lifetime ...
