THE WOODLANDS, TX (June 15, 2012) ? Save the date for the 10th Annual Fall Home and Garden Show at The Woodlands, Saturday and Sunday, August 25 and 26, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
See what?s new in home d?cor, remodeling, kitchen and bath, energy efficiency, landscaping and outdoor living. More than 200 local home improvement experts will be available with exhibits and presentations that will inspire, educate and help you get started in the right direction on home projects.
Adding some great fun to both days of the Show will be the appearance of Dr. Lori, star antiques appraiser from the hit TV reality show Auction Kings on the Discovery Channel.
?The last time I was here, I appraised an illuminated manuscript of Spanish origin that dated in the 1500s,? said Dr. Lori. She said she also appraised a painting that a woman had purchased at a yard sale for $12, and it turned out to be worth $100,000.
?Dr. Lori has been featured on NBC?s The Tonight Show, Comedy Central?s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Anderson Cooper?s talk show,? said Tony Wood, producer of the Home Garden Shows at The Woodlands. ?We are thrilled to have her back. She will be offering one free appraisal on a first-come first-serve basis, as time allows, to those who attend her seminar. We encourage people to bring their items to the show to take advantage of Dr. Lori?s expertise.?
The Ultimate Putting Green by Elliott Brothers Landscaping offers a great opportunity for attendees to practice their swing. The 400-sq.ft. putting green is the focal point of the Dream Vacation Backyard exhibit at the show. ?We can turn the entire back yard into a putting green, or we can size it for a portion of the yard,? said Scott Elliott. The putting green includes a short game area and will be within a beautifully landscaped setting that includes a water fountain and outdoor kitchen.
?Aging in Place? is a hot topic these days. Nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age, according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Brandon Lynch with Keechi Creek Builders will give a presentation on how to plan for aging in place. ?I recommend that people begin by doing those simple things that will help make their life more comfortable now and later,? said Lynch.
On the Cooking Stage, things will be stirring with home-entertaining tips, quick-and-easy recipes and cooking demonstrations. Check out the latest technology in kitchen tools and equipment designed to save time while creating delicious meals for family and friends.
First impressions are often based on color, such as those in our environment, rooms, people, and clothing. And no one knows this better than certified color specialist Catherine Falgoust, who will also be returning to the Fall Show. She will be speaking on the color trends for 2013 and tips for choosing colors confidently.
Other special guest appearances will include Randy Lemmon, Newsradio 740 KTRH GardenLine host, Brenda Beust Smith, The Lazy Gardener blogger for the Houston Chronicle, and more.
