In homes, small changes can make a big difference; rearranging furniture can make a room feel more airy, and a garden of colorful tulips makes a house look less on fire. Learn these and other tricks of the trade with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Central Florida Home & Garden Show at the Orange County Convention Center (up to a $20 value). This Groupon lets garden and design enthusiasts attend any single day of the garden show, which runs April 15–17; doors open at 10 a.m each day.
The Central Florida Home & Garden Show sates flora fanciers and design mavens alike with a three-day showcase of home and garden experts, exhibits, and products. Soak up sage advice on gardening, remodeling, home building, and interior décor from hundreds of green-thumbed virtuosos and abode aficionados, including celebrity guests such as Andrew Downward of HGTV's Divine Design. Conventioneers also get to amble through more than 6,000 square feet of garden exhibits designed by local landscapers. Each lush flower and room display will flood the brain with creative juices and inspire it to rethink its aesthetic reliance on sad-clown paintings.
The Home & Garden Show's highlights involve more than just flowers and floor plans. Astronauts-in-training can stare into the depths of space from NASA's interactive booth and mobile planetarium before picking up a few cooking tips from Orlando's top chefs. And on Saturday, country music star Chuck Wicks will play a live acoustic set to an audience abuzz from the free beer samples at the backyard barbecue.
Adult ticket prices are $5 after 5 p.m. on each day of the Central Florida Home & Garden Show.
