Home is where the heart is, unless that home is filled with adept man-eaters. Refinish your cardiac cavity with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get two tickets for a single-day admission to the OKC Home Show, which runs April 1–3 at the State Fair Park (up to a $22 value). Children 12 and younger get in free.
With hundreds of exhibitors and two separate stages showcasing numerous events and attractions, the OKC Home Show quells decoration disquietude and home-repair rancor. The show dutifully plays host to the latest product lines and features displays on interior design, renovation, and home entertainment. Flower fanatics can get expert tips on the latest floral arrangement techniques, and furniture junkies can glean inspiration from design trends, hosted by interior designer Janis Bevers, showcasing the latest accouterments fashioned from reclaimed lumber in a lounge-style living-room space.
Project Runway's Chris Straub will expound on home textiles as an influence for his designs, and Chip Wade, contractor and master carpenter on HGTV’s Curb Appeal, talks about making over a home using only items found in the average woman's purse. A gaggle of other celebrity guests and local gurus answer questions and lead seminars on the dos and don’ts of home renovation, design trends for 2011, and training homes to growl at suspicious passersby.
Though OKC Home Show sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
