~ lg kick-off


Our kick-off for the 10th anniversary of the Lauritzen Gardens Antique and Garden Show was a big success. I have never stressed so much in my life as I did preparing for this meeting. 

Kyle and I were so excited to share our inspiration, our vision, and the speaker reveal for the weekend was especially exciting...

Here, Kyle prepped for the meeting the afternoon before...

Harrison Howard, renowned artist and friend, was commissioned to do the artwork for a very special commemorative print honoring the anniversary celebration. 


Also, these charming notecards feature four of his designs...

Kyle mimicked the turtle and vase from one of the notecards...


And here are charming gift tags also by Harrison Howard...


The weekend promises to be packed with awesomeness...

Our Friday keynote speaker is none other than Carolyne Roehm. Friends, this has been a dream for this show for the entire decade of it's existence. We could not be more thrilled.

Our Saturday speaker is the darling, the charismatic Kathryn Ireland of Bravo's Million Dollar Decorator's. So excited to be with her!

Friday night, a special event called Cocktails & Collectibles, will feature blogger favorite Eddie Ross. Eddie will be doing a special tablescape for the event and together with Jaithan, they will mingle with guests and bring a special energy to the evening.

Sunday afternoon, Domestic Diva Danielle Rollins will be speaking and signing her new gorgeous book, Soiree

I will be featuring each of the special guests in their own posts in the coming weeks... The weekend is set for September 26-29, and we are enjoying every second of the planning. Well, maybe not every second... but most of them for sure! 

All the tulips from the meeting came home with me.. 
Thank you Kyle!

How exciting! Kudos to you for all the work you've done on this show. I just returned from the Nashville Antique and Garden Show. It was a fabulous experience. Bunny Williams' tribute to Albert Hadley was the highlight for me. Enjoy the show.......Sarah
