Lifetime Chairs at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Did you know that an estimated 2.5 million people go to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City each year? That’s roughly twice the population of Hawaii, and all these people are standing on the same street in New York City at the same time to watch the parade. That’s a lot of people all hoping to get front row spots for the festivities!

Because there’s such limited front-row space, people show up 3 or 4 hours before the parade starts to get the best views, which means a lot of time standing and waiting. This year, to make the morning more relaxing, we decided to bring Lifetime Chairs to some of these people who were anticipating the start of the parade. That way, they could have a comfortable place to sit and rest their feet while getting a great view of all the floats, dancers and balloons. All the people who sat in our Lifetime Chairs during the parade got great views of Miley Cyrus, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer and others.

When I was a kid, I got up really early to get a good view of the parade, and I definitely wanted a place to sit then, so it was exciting to put such a smile on people’s faces with chairs this year! I couldn’t believe how many people told us that they had already set up Lifetime Tables and Chairs for their Thanksgiving dinners that evening.

Once the parade was over, we took the chairs and went home to our friends and family. Since Lifetime Chairs are lightweight and they fold up, it was easy for us to get through the crowds. In fact, a few people even noticed how well we maneuvered and said they would definitely bring their own Lifetime Chairs from home next year!

What's in a name?
Interesting littlestory here. Irecently received this email from Joanne Nelson of Exeter, Rhode Island: I purchased a Lifetime Personal Table several years ago and I love it. I am a quilter and this little table goes with me when I go to classes because I can set my sewing machine on it and adjust the height to exactly what I need so it is ergonomically correct for my sitting position However... I recently brought my table to a quilting retreat to let a 84 yr old lady, who is tiny, borrow my table so she could sew comfortably for the 5 day retreat. She was so happy about the table that I wanted to buy one for her. I found one and brought it home only to be very disappointed in the redesign of it. My table has metal legs and they are secured into a metal frame work so the legs can't come out very easily by accident if the t...
Who Dunnit?
My oh my. What a weekend! My husband and I hosted a party at our house for his squadron on Saturday night. We always like to make things interesting and entertaining so we decided to host a Murder Mystery party for our 39 guests. Never been to a Murder Mystery party? More details on how it works in a minute... The theme of our Murder Mystery party was a Class of '85 High School Reunion. Everyone had to dress like their character would have in the 80s. Wow, talk about some, like, totally awesome costumes! The women pulled out all the classics including jelly bracelets, leggings, shoulder pads, and cans of Aquanet hairspray to tease their hair. (Ah, the good 'ol days.) Not to be outdone, the men donned layered shirts, Miami Vice suits, acid washed jeans, and rat tails. Hillarious! And, if the costume reminiscing wasn't enough,...
Temporary Diaper Changing Table
Do you have guests with little ones coming to stay with you for the holidays? Fill ill-equipped to meet all the baby needs? Sometimes the little comforts of home can make a big difference when traveling with children who are used to routines. One easy way to accommodate your diaper-wearing visitors (and their parents) is to have a changing table set up in their room. Hold on, no need to run to the local baby store. Simply pull out your Lifetime folding table! Trust me, it works perfect! This summer when we were home visiting my parents, my mom set up her Lifetime 4 adjustable height fold-in-half table in my daughters room. We used it as a diaper changing table for my 2-year-old and the 4 table was the perfect size...we even had room to keep the wipes on the table, too. And, since Lifetime tables are plastic, if there happen...
