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.

Blessings!

Sandy,

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: http://www.specialtylinens.us/

I also found that a few retailers make chair covers tailored to Lifetime Chairs. Here is one such website: www.beyondelegance.com/chair_cover_rentals.htm

Best of luck to you!

It's Fall Storage Season - Lifetime Has You Covered
As we welcome in the Fall season, we have to farewell theoutdoor entertaining season at least in most parts of the country. For those of you gearing up for cold and snowy winters, it's time to start packing up your outdoor areas including your pool, patio, deck, and yard. In the next few weeks, plan to cover the pool, clean the grill, and put away everything you wont need again until next summer. Unfortunately, all the things that live in your yard and on your patio during the summer suddenly now need a winter home. What to do with so much stuff? Well, first of all, sort through everything and determine if you really need to keep it. Often times outdoor items quickly get tattered, faded, and broken by the end of the summer and it's better to simply trash it. Or, if it's something you don't use anymore or have outgrown, consi...

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...
