Each year, the Fall Home and Garden Show opens its doors to hundreds of vendors, local experts, and top remodelers who brandish home products and dole out domicile-related advice. Home Depot–sponsored workshops guide visitors in do-it-yourself projects, which include painting the house, removing leaves, and evicting rent-evading lemonade stands from the front yard. Green thumbs sort through a variety of specialty flowers for sale, such as azaleas and perennials; friends of quadrupeds fall hard for wide-eyed adoptable dogs, cats, and other critters brought by the Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals. At the premier Serving Up Style event, garden show attendees and judgmental pieces of silverware view and vote on 15 modern and whimsical dining room environments from the region’s top retailers and designers. As guests gain fresh design perspective and fantasize about adding a Don Knotts–themed wing to their houses, all proceeds go to benefit Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus.
