Rent lush, comfy lounge furniture for your special event and you’ll see guests effortlessly unwinding within minutes of arriving. You need to tailor your furniture rental choices to the mood you’re hoping to set at your special get together. If your party’s all about providing guests with the rest and relaxation they need to recover from their hectic everyday lives, you need to make sure that you include all of the following items in your lounge furniture rental: The Circular Sectional A circular sectional not only provides plenty of comfortable seating, but it also facilitates easy conversations among guests by bringing everyone together around a focal point. The circular sectional allows you to sit many different guests with only one furniture piece, and the intriguing design of the circular sectional will also contribute an eye-catching visual dynamic to the party landscape.  The Ottomans When it comes to relaxation, there is no furniture piece as inviting and indulgent as the ottoman. You want your guests to sit back and kick their feet up, so give them the necessary equipment. Ottomans promote a laid back feel that will convince everyone to feel comfortable even in the laziest and most casual positions.  The Lighting Don’t underestimate the importance of lighting when it comes to laying out the scene at your special event. Lighting is particularly important for setting a certain mood.

Learning How To Swim

Posted by on Dec 18, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Perhaps you’re an adult who never learned how to swim. Perhaps you want to teach your kids a valuable life skill. Perhaps you suffer from arthritis and wish to experience a more bearable form of exercise. In any of these situations, you could benefit greatly from swimming lessons, taught at a variety of different locations. Here is a brief explanation of how to get started in your search for swimming lessons: The location The first step to enrolling in swimming lessons is to find out where they are held. If there is a local public pool, then you can probably inquire at the front desk regarding swimming classes, They should have a list of available classes by age, range and hours.  If there is no easily accessible public pool near you, then you might need to dig a little deeper. If you have a private neighborhood pool, then there is a chance that a class is taught there. You might want to ask your homeowners’ association (if you have one) about any local classes. If you still cannot find classes, then you should check both your local civic center and the internet. Your civic center/town hall should have listings for local classes, while you can probably some on the internet, due to the increasing prevalence of online advertising. The cost Usually, public classes will run around $30-40 for about a month of weekly classes. This means that you will pay about $10 per class, give or take. When weighing whether or not that is a reasonable price, remember that swimming is definitely a skill that can save your life. In fact, it can help save the lives of others. When looking at it from that perspective, $40 suddenly doesn’t seem like such a massive investment. The curriculum What each swimming class teaches can vary wildly between different areas and businesses, but there is a basic progression of skills which can be identified. This is evident in the 6 stage Red Cross program, “Learn to Swim“. You should select a swimming class based on your comfort level with the following concepts and skills. If you feel that you or your child are entirely new to swimming, then there is no shame in starting with a level 1 class: The lowest level of classes focuses on familiarization with water. These basic classes involve bobbing, basic movement in water, and opening your eyes underwater The next level of classes revolves around rudimentary versions of the breaststroke and backstroke, and diving to retrieve items This is a deeper exploration of the different types of strokes The more advanced strokes are taught here, including the butterfly and breaststroke The final strokes are at this...

Planning An Outdoor Wedding

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

If you are going to be getting married soon, you will have many tasks to oversee before the big date. If you are going to be holding your reception outdoors, you will have a whole set of concerns dealing with the weather. Here are some tips that you can use if you are going to hold your event outdoors. Making An Alternate Plan If you are going to have your wedding outdoors, you will need to be prepared for the worst. The weather will have a huge impact on how your day will go, and it would be best to have a backup plan in case of severe weather. If the wedding will be held at a location that has both outdoor and indoor wedding capabilities, you can ask if you could hold a room for the event in case of inclement weather. Most wedding halls will allow this. If you are having your wedding at an area that does not have facilities, you will need to book somewhere else with the understanding that if the weather is not bad, you will not be needing their services. This type of place can be a little harder to find. You may need to think outside the box. The Ceremony If the ceremony will be held outdoors, you will want to provide your guests with fans if the weather is even the least bit hot or humid. Sitting in the direct sunlight can make a person very uncomfortable in a short amount of time. Take your guests into consideration with the starting time of your wedding, should the weather be hot. Do not keep them sitting in the heat waiting for you to walk down the aisle. Do your best to stay on schedule. If there is a possibility of rain, have the area covered with an event tent. These can be rented from a party supply rental service and will keep your guests dry and out of the sun. You can place the chairs right underneath and can remove them if the weather seems to be nice enough to not need them. The Reception You will definitely want to rent party tents if the reception will be held outdoors and if the facility doesn’t have a covered area already set up for weddings. Some of the tents you can rent are very elegant and look like the actual inside of a room. They are windproof and rainproof. Ask Anthony Party Rental or a similar company to help you decide what would work best for your particular...

Don’t Throw Out That Old Furniture Just Yet!

Posted by on Oct 29, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

So, you’ve decided to clean up the attic or garage. Maybe you are cleaning up your parent’s home. Whatever the situation, you will likely find something that will be of interest to antique dealers or used furniture stores. You should pay particular attention to old furniture, such as desks, chairs and tables. Even if you don’t think the furniture is worth anything, you should see what an antique appraiser tells you. What Type Of Furniture Is Not Worth Keeping? There are some types of furniture that are not worth money on the antique market. Things that are relatively new or made of particleboard are not found in antique shops. Likewise, if you have a table or couch that is in really terrible condition, it is not worth taking it around to antique shops. What Type Of Furniture Should You Bring In For Appraisal? Anything that is very old should be kept aside. If you are lucky enough to find a desk or bureau that looks like it is from the 19th century or earlier, then you want to bring that in for expert appraisal. You should also keep wood furniture that is in good condition. While it might not be worth much on the antique market, it might be worth money to a used furniture dealer. Besides wood furniture, you should be on the lookout for old leather couches, ornate cabinets and mirrors. Also, anything that looks like it was handmade should be kept aside and brought in for an appraisal. You Have A House Full Of Furniture? If you are dealing with one piece of furniture, or even a couple, you can seek out an antique appraisal company or bring it in to a used furniture store. However, if you are cleaning out a relative’s home and have dozens of pieces of furniture, you should look into an estate liquidation service. Before you contact an estate liquidator, you can look through the house and see if there are any select pieces you want to bring in to an antique expert. The rest of the furniture can be handed off the estate liquidator. They will then either auction it off or resell it. The benefit of using a liquidator service is that you don’t have to deal with moving and researching dozens of items. You can simply bring in a company that has expertise in the area and let them handle it for...
