~ lgas 2017 sneak peek

It's that time of year again friends! The Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show is here! I was lucky enough to preview the dealer booths before the Show opened to the public, and I'm thrilled to share the photos with you. Each year, several readers purchase something special thanks to these blog preview posts, and that makes me so happy! 

Before each collection of photos, I try to include the dealer and include a link to their website, if they have one. Remember, these photos are taken during set up, so many of the booths are not quite available for a photo shoot. I tried to include as many as possible, and there will be a follow up post with even more after the show... 

Of course, seeing all this beauty in person is the preferred way to go, but this is a nice Plan B. In fact, some years, when the Show has packed up and moved out, I am still finding new things in the photos and calling in a panic.. DO YOU STILL HAVE THIS CANDLESTICK??  It is a dream come true to have access to so many antique dealers, from all over the country, in one place. 

Here we go! 

No better way to start than with my dear friend, Thomas Fortner...

 This pair of mirrors is stunning!

I am in love with these crabs! They hang from the wall and have an opening for flowers!

 The grounds are beautiful, as always! 

Mark D. Sikes will be interviewed by Sophie Donelson for the Friday luncheon. Mark inspired our blue and white theme for the weekend, and as you can imagine, it is gorgeous. 

Shane Connolly, florist to the Queen, is our Saturday speaker. I saw him in Nashville not too long ago, and he was so charming and entertaining. I was super excited to get details on Kate and Will's wedding, except guess what? He doesn't share royal secrets. Duh.
What a thrill to have him in Omaha!

There are lots of fun activities planned for the weekend, and you can find a full schedule of events here

Scrolling down, I was thinking, where are these antique shops in Omaha and how have I not seen them, but now I realize they are from all over the country. What a boon to get them together.
And those flowers are spectacular. What vivid colors!

Of course, I NEED nothing, it's just that there is always SOMETHING I want want want. Sending love, Jan....
