How to Get More Seating Around Your Patio Table

Are you planning a backyard picnic to celebrate the end of summer or upcoming Labor Day? Still trying to figure out where everyone can sit?  If you're like me, you have a nice patio table and chair set, but it seems like I'm still always short just one or two chairs to be able to have everyone sit together.  I could set up my Lifetime card table and folding chairs, but it feels awkward having two people dine by themselves away from the group. 

Well, here's a handy suggestion my mom shared with me that's the perfect solution to your seating dilemma. Typically, the chairs that come with a  patio table are very comfy, but they are also usually very wide and feature arm rests.  If you need to add a few extra seats to your patio table, simply use your Lifetime folding chairs instead of your bulky patio chairs and you'll have instant extra room!

Check out these pictures to see what I mean.  Using my patio chairs, my table can only seat six people maximum. But, by using my Lifetime folding chairs, I could actually fit 10 chairs around the table if I needed so we can all eat together at one table. (If I had 10 Lifetime chairs, that is.  I actually only have eight so I couldn't quite fill it up completely.)   Yes, it's a tight squeeze, but it does work!  And, don't worry, Lifetime chairs are made of high-density polyethylene and powder-coated steel that are weather-resistant so the chairs are perfectly fine outside if happens to starting raining.

I hope this helps for your next big backyard BBQ.  Happy dining!

Kids' Picnic Table Gets New Color(less)!
So, I have to fess up. Lifetime makes a kids picnic table, but I dont own one. To make matters worse, I own a Step 2 picnic table instead. And, I actually bought my kids picnic table AFTER I worked for Lifetime Products and knew firsthand the great quality in all products from Lifetime. Oh, stop it! I can already hear my former co-workers shouting why, why, why? as they read this. I purchased the table for my sons 2nd birthday. (Great present idea, BTW!) At the time, we lived in Phoenix where we had a tiny backyard with an in-ground pool and a piece of grass that was smaller than our master bathroom...no joke. Everyones backyard in Phoenix is surrounded by a 6 cement block fence...how cozy, huh?!? Anyway, with such a small lot and a pool taking up half of it, I didnt want the rest of the yard to be mistaken for a daycare wi...
Happy Blogging Birthday!
I cant believe its been one year already since I wrote my first blog for Lifetime365.com. I have to admit, back when the folks at Lifetime first asked me if I was interested in blogging, I was a bit hesitant. Dont get me wrong, I was super excited they asked me since I am a former Lifetime employee and I LOVE writing. It was a perfect fit. But, I wasnt quite sure how I would ever come up with enough topics about Lifetime products from my daily life to blog one to two times a week. Well, it turns out that when you really like something, its pretty easy to talk (er, blog) about it non-stop! Kind of like how people can go on and on and on about their kids. :) Until I started this little project, I honestly never realized how many times and ways I use Lifetime products almost every day. And, as youve probably noticed, I only use...
Think Inside the Box
We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we cant officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor StorageBox. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the door of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box sh...
