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!

Memory of a Lifetime
The first time that I played basketball, or at least tried to, it was on a piece of plywood bolted above a neighbor's garage back in the mid 80's. I say "tried", because the ball never came remotely close to the rim - although it did hit the family station wagon multiple times. That's what makes my first encounter with Lifetime so memorable. It was in my best friend's driveway in the spring of 1990 - I was 12. I helped him unpack the shiny white poles for his new basketball hoop, while he picked an ideal spot for it in the corner of his driveway. With shovel and tools in hand, we began to install what would turn out to be the hub of recreation for us and several friends over the next half decade. While I didn't know then who Lifetime was as a company, I quickly became familiar with the advantage of their product. After the ...
Lifetime Brands
Earlier this year, we bought a GMC Acadia. I LOVE it! It was the first crossover SUV of its kind and now several other automakers have followed suit. The Acadia is an SUV on the outside with the seating configuration of a mini-van on the inside. Perfect for those of us who like the idea of a mini-van, but not all the psychological baggage that comes along with them! Over the past few months, as friends see our vehicle they will often say comments like, This reminds me a lot of a Saturn Outlook. Or, Is this like a Saturn Outlook? Well, you know why? They are the same car! GMowns both the GMC andSaturn brand and, consequently, the Acadia and Outlook bascially come off the same production line. (And, the Buick Enclave too!). For various marketing and sales strategies, companies often make the same product with slight variations...
Lifetime Card Table Comparison
A few months ago, I posted some photos to show you a comparison of the size of Lifetime chairs to a typical folding chair. So, today, I thought I'd go ahead and show you how a Lifetime Card Table compares to a typical card table. First of all, what you may not realize, without having two card tables to compare side-by-side, is that a typical card table is 34" square while the Lifetime card table is actually 37". As you can see by the photo, this provides quite a bit of extra useable surface area. This extra space certainly comes in handy when I seat four people around the table to eat, piece together large puzzles, and more. And, don't worry, the table is still lightweight and easy to carry at just 19lbs. Speaking of weightthe Lifetime card table is engineered for superior strength and durability. In fact, the Lifetime card...
