Home is where the heart is, unless that home is filled with adept man-eaters. Refinish your cardiac cavity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to the BC Home + Garden Show (up to a $30 value including GST) at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This Groupon is good for entry for one day throughout the run of the show, from Wednesday, March 2 through Sunday, March 6. Children 12 years old and under get in free.
With more than 425 exhibitors, celebrity guests, and three stages of events and attractions, the BC Home + Garden Show quells decoration disquietude and home-repair rancour. The show, like a sole human at a stuffed-animal tea party, dutifully plays host to the latest product lines and features displays on interior design, renovation, and home entertainment. Bryan Baeumler, host of HGTV’s Disaster DIY, and a gaggle of other celebrity guests and local experts answer questions and lead seminars on the dos and don’ts of renovation, design trends for 2011, and programming homes to narrate apocalyptic sci-fi tales.
After cutting a swath through the dense forest of gardening implements and vintage lamps, grant foraging feet a rest at the patio lounge. Parched gardeners can test their new watering cans with a cocktail upon the lounge's artificial lawn, and appreciators of the fine art of crafting fine art can peruse the urban market, a gallery and shop displaying the fine arts, pottery, and sculpture of local and West Coast craftspeople.
Though reviews for the BC Home + Garden Event are still growing, the national Home + Garden Events series has more than 3,200 Facebook fans.
