Card Table and Chairs - A Wedding Gift of Yesteryear?

card table and chairs.JPGI'm not a wedding expert, but I think it's safe to say that wedding gifts have changed over the years.  Or, at least the way we decide what to give as a wedding gift.  Today, the happy couple typically registers at their favorite store for gifts they want or think they need for their new home.  So, a majority of gift givers simply pick something off the list or give a gift card so the couple can make their own purchase.  Sure, this method has some advantages.  But, in most instances, gone are the days of creative gift giving.  Case and point… I can't remember the last time I was at a wedding and saw a card table and chairs sitting there as a gift.  But apparently, once upon a time, a card table and chairs was a popular wedding gift.  We had numerous entrants to this month's giveaway who said they currently own a card table that was given to them as a wedding gift 10, 20 and even 30 years ago.  

It's kind of sad that people don't give a card table and chairs as gifts much these days.  After all, card tables and chairs have come a long way!  When you buy a Lifetime Square (aka Card) table, you can purchase a 37" or 34" size, and even ones that fold-in-half with a carry handle.  And, gone are the days of those wobbly card tables with vinyl tabletops that tear the first time you accidentally drop some scissors on them.  Lifetime Square Tables have a sturdy, steel frame and a thick, blow-molded polyethylene tabletop that is easy to clean, stain resistant, and won't tear, crack, warp, or peel. 

I'll admit, the bride and groom may not be jumping up and down at first, but they'll soon appreciate the practicality and versatility of receiving a card table and chairs as a gift (especially a Lifetime Card Table and Chairs).  When they first move in to their home and don't have a dining table, they can pull out that card table and it's an instant dining space.  Then, they can move it to the office for the computer desk or in the family room for a TV stand.  Later as the couple matures, it may eventually get tucked away, but they will surely find various reasons to use it again and again for holiday dinners, crafts, game nights, and more.

Regardless of whether you decide to revive the idea of giving a card table and chairs for a wedding gift, we're happily giving a Lifetime Fold-In-Half Card Table and four Lifetime Folding Chairs to Krista G. of Burkburnett, TX.  She was our luckly October winner who will get to seat her extra Thanksgiving dinner guests around her new Lifetime Table and can then pull it out throughout the years for bake sales, hobbies, and a whole lot more.  Congratulations to Krista and thanks to all of you who took the time to enter and share your feedback.

By the way, giving a Lifetime Card Table and Lifetime Folding Chairs as a Christmas gift to newlyweds is also a great idea.  And, you can purchase them onilne with FREE shipping every day in the Lifetime Store Online.  (Hint, hint… only 47 shopping days left until Christmas!)

Waterproof Tables at Swim School
My son started taking swimming lessons a few weeks ago at a new swim school that just opened by our house. I must say, for a 5-year-old he does really well! He's known how to kind of swim for several years, but we're hoping this new class will help perfect his stroke so he is proficient and completely independent for this summer's swim season. The place where he takes swimming lessons has a pretty thorough system of checks and balances to ensure each child completes the necessary skills in each level. They have an instructor that monitors the swim teacher and student during the lesson and evaluates if the skill is mastered. After the skill is mastered, it is recorded in a logbook and marked off on the child's wristband. I was happy to see when I walked in the first day that they use a Lifetime 4-foot adjustable height table...
