It’s getting to be about that time of year again for the hugely popular Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville at the Music City Center. David and I anxiously await the return each year, maybe because it makes us feel that spring really is just around the corner.
If the stunning gardens don’t put a bounce of spring in your step then I don’t know what will. Go see for yourself. You can check out the professional planners and designers who make it all possible HERE.
The stroll through the gardens is the prerequisite for setting the mood for one of the main reasons that you will be there - the vendors! More than 130 carefully curated stellar vendors from across the U.S. put on the most spectacular show of all!!
There is something for everyone from fine antiques, to folk art, to vintage garden statuary; including cast iron urns (and yes, for those of you have called looking for them, you will find them there), fountains, and unusual garden art. There are horticultural vendors as well so go ahead and pick up some healthy plants and bulbs for spring planting. Map out your plan for shopping from the VENDOR LIST.
Then there are the lectures …. ooooh, the lectures …. the most amazing presenters! We’re talking celebrity status - from Nate Berkus to Brooke and Steve Giannetti (Owners & Designers of the famed Patina Farm and authors of the book by the same name).
BTW - little side note. We are attending the Patina Farm lecture on Friday, February 3 at 2 pm. You should meet us there.
Then don’t miss out on the Dream Team Lecture on Saturday and get some wedding design inspiration from Tara Guerard.
If you go...plan to attend the kick-off premier social event of the year where you can sip and shop the show at the Thursday evening (Feb. 2) Preview Party. It’s always a sell out so get your tickets early, like now!
If you just can’t make it to the Preview then plan for the Bourbon Party on Friday evening, Feb, 3 from 6:30 to 9: pm. General show admission runs all weekend Feb. 3-5. To get all the details visit the show website at www.antiquesandgardenshow.com.
Are you going? Let’s meet up!
