An Elegant Wedding Reception

An Elegant Wedding Reception

An Elegant Wedding Reception

A few months ago I attended a wedding reception for an old friend of mine. He and his bride chose a beautiful nursery garden for the location; a small waterfall, a pond, and the abundance of lush foliage set the perfect scene. T

he entire setup also used Lifetimetables and chairs in a great way that was simple and elegant, to be specefic, they used Lifetime round tables and folding chairsHaving planned my own wedding just 1 year ago last week, the whole process is still fresh on my mind. He and his bride emailed me 6 months before the wedding asking for some tips and contacts. So naturally, I was very curious to see how the reception turned out.

After being a picky bride, you tend to notice all those things that tend to take SO MUCH time to choose. You appreciate the little details that took hours of debating, several last minute fixes, and frustrating arguments with mom. You know what I mean--- the cake, the color(s), types of flowers, her shoes, and most certainly-- the dress. The table's centerpieces are certainly one of these details. I remember holding color swatches against a white table cloth, running to the store to buy yet another kind of vase, debating over disposable cameras, sprinkling flower petals over the table, then clearing them off and sprinkling on some little rocks... I was always keeping my eyes open for something unique.

Well, this couple had very unique centerpieces I just had to share with you: glass vases in a cast iron stand, with fish and flowers. It was a combination of everything a bride wants! Very cool. Very cool. If you're a bride to be, or know someone planning a wedding, or even if you're the groom and could care less about centerpieces, you should check out this useful site The Knot, for some great centerpiece ideas like this one, and plenty more ideas for wedding planning and wedding decor.

I love the photo! I know the wedding was beautiful!

I would like to know where you found the chair covers to fit so perfectly.  I am looking for covers to fit our Lifetime chairs this perfectly.

Thanks for the comment! My apologies in getting back with you so late, I had to do some digging. I found out that the chair covers in these photos are from Specialty Linens (a Utah company). Their web address is:

I also found that a few retailers make chair covers tailored to Lifetime Chairs. Here is one such website:

Best of luck to you!

Use Shed Doors for Storage Space
Last week Lifetimes Home Garden Guru Charlie Nardozzis Tip of the Week provided quick pointers of how to properly clean and store your garden tools for the winter. His tip reminded me of a handy idea I picked up while visiting BackYards Inc. a few weeks ago. (BackYards Inc. is the official outlet store for Lifetime Products with five locations in Utah.) Lifetimes plastic sheds come with two peg strips, which I installed on the shed walls. (If I recall, I think thats where the instruction photos show to install them, as well.) However, to maximize storage space, did you know you can also install the peg strips on the shed doors! Handy, huh? Are your peg strips already full? No problem! You can buy additional peg strips, as well as otherLifetime shed accessories like shelves, lights, shutters, and more at An...
The Office Basketball Shot: Catch You on the Flippity Flip!
Like 7,742,484 other people, I followNBC's The Office on Facebook and I'm a big fan of the show. Last night's tear-jerker was a great way tosay goodbye tothe Michael Scott we have come to love, andbegin to closetheir seventh season. As part of the usual Thursday night ritual, I was curled up on the couch with a bowl of dinner and myfavorite throw. I think I speak for all"Office Fans" at Lifetime whenI say I wasSO EXCITED to see Michael Scott missing basketball shots on aLifetime basketball hoop! As Steve Carrell tossed the ballbehind his shoulder, saying"catch you guys on the flippity flip!" he constantly shot toward aportable Lifetime basketball hoop...until he finally made it.It must have been a fun shot to produce,it looks like they used the adjustable height feature and lowered the hoop to the lowest setting, and Michae...
Recreational Kayaking is Fun and Safe For the Family
Recreational kayaking is a fun and safe way for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors. Many people are a little apprehensive when they hear the word "kayaking." They imagine people dropping off of 20 foot waterfalls and paddling through big wavy rapids. But that isnt the only way to kayak. In fact, the largest segment of kayaking is within the recreational sector. What is recreational kayaking? Recreational kayaking refers to paddling on flat water lakes, bays, slow-moving calm river ways, and calm oceans. No rapids involved! Flat-water paddling is a safe way to enjoy the water. Another misconception about kayaking is the Eskimo roll, which is another aspect of kayaking that only applies to whitewater or sea kayaking. Recreational kayaks are not meant to roll and they are not designed to keep you inside if you should flip y...
