    I understand you must not have a center piece on a table as high as this one. You can’t see the person opposite you!! Who set this table?

      Hi Elaine,

      I set the table. Normally when I have a large centerpiece such as the one on this table it’s purely for decor that people will see when they arrive for the dinner/party. Once it’s time to sit and ate and move in food then I remove it. Don’t worry! You will be able to see the guests across from you.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
