Featured Item: Wood Stumps

One of my favorite items in the A LA CRATE rentals inventory is their rustic, multi-purpose wood stumps. At about 1.5 feet high and 1 foot in diameter, the obvious use is for a creative chair option at your next fall outdoor dinner party, or strewn around a backyard picnic with blankets and board games. But, there are actually a lot of other creative ways you can use the wood stumps that really struck my fancy. The above photo from Megan Elise Photography is one of our favorites of these stumps in action BTW.

For the bride (or any photo shoot) stumps are a great prop.  What a fun way to do something creative for your wedding photos!

Do you need an excuse to throw a backyard fall dinner party?  Well, here you go!  You can even go the extra step and make a cute DIY stump cover!

Or go a more casual direction with your seating as we did at our Hipster Party!

Personally, I love this idea – what a pretty way to display an elegant assortment of candles.

And last, but certainly not least, tree stumps are a great way to designate a wedding aisle (and display the gorgeous flower arrangements)!

I hope everyone is making a smooth transition from summer to fall – from back-to-school to cooler temps, don’t forget to have a little fun before the snow flies.

Until next time,
