What You'll Get
A new design for your living room is a surefire way to wow those left unimpressed by the current living room's rusty guillotine footrest, watercolor paintings of rusty guillotines, and floor lamp mysteriously sporting an oxidized blade. Better cut through bad home-décor choices with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a one-day ticket to the South Bay Home & Garden Show (up to a $10 value), held September 10–12 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Should you wish to come back to the event, your ticket can be extended at no charge. Free parking is available.
With hundreds of exciting exhibits and two seminar stages, the 31st-annual South Bay Home & Garden Show displays the latest trends in home design and pairs homeowners with top remodeling experts. Use your ticket ($10 at the door, $7 online; $8 for seniors at the door, $5 for seniors online) to browse the exhibitors' newest products and home solutions, with displays on decorating, home accents, interior design, and remodeling offering ideas for bedrooms, kitchens, and Batcaves. Guests for this year's event include Ahmed Hassan, the landscaping mastermind of DIY Network's Yard Crashers and Turf War, who'll give tips on how to spruce up the backyard. The Wine Guy Unplugged host Anthony Gilardi will also make appearances on Saturday and Sunday to film segments for his show while leading visitors in an exquisite wine tasting.
Friends of San Martin Animal Shelter will be on hand with their popular mobile adoption center, so you can take home a new pet to roam on your remodeled patio. Pick up environmentally friendly products to make your home more energy-sustainable, catch a cookware demonstration for fun new tools in the kitchen, or talk to a professional designer to see how to salvage your game room in the wake of its unfortunate lemur attack with today's Groupon to the South Bay Home & Garden Show.
