Don’t forget to use PROMO CODE: HOMO to recOnce again the fabulous BC Home + Garden Show is descending on Vancouver next week at the Vancouver Convention Centre from March 2 – 6, 2011. Naturally, yours truly alongside a gaggle of the Homorazzi cast will be taking in all the sights, sounds and brawn that the BC Home + Garden Show has to offer. If you recall from past events, we’ve definitely had our fun while scouting out the hottest men on site and all the latest trends in home fashion and décor!
This year’s event is proving to be bigger and better than ever as it’s the 40th Anniversary of the show with it’s triumphant return from the unexpected 2010 postponement due to the 2010 Winter Olympics and the BC Place roof replacement. There will be over 425 vendors on site demonstrating everything under the sun (literally, for your home and garden) and the perfect interior compliments and colours for the upcoming summer season. Seriously people, summer is just around the corner (I know, it’s still February but a man’s gotta have something to look forward to) and there’s no better way to get into the spirit than heading down to the BC Home and Garden Show and discovering ways to bolster your home with spring essentials.
Once again my good friend Tyson Kidd (Senior Sales Rep with the show – the guy with the headset you see running around) has offered up some tidbits about the show as well as some unique opportunities for Homorazzi readers! Let’s start with the event happenings and goodies. There are some definite not-to-be-missed attractions at this year’s show, starting with returning homo-hotties, Colin and Justin, set to dish their opinions on just about everything! Also, if you missed the tool wielding, plaid wearing hunk, Brian Baeumler (from the hit HGTV series Disaster DIY) at the Fall Home and Interior Design show, then you’re in luck as he’s back in the saddle in the Spring show as well!
In addition, the following are two of Tyson’s hottest recommends for this year’s show:
The Karo Cabin is new for this year, designed and built by Karoleena Homes of Lethbridge. The cabin is perfect for your out of town getaway and even usable as a laneway home if your property permits. Even if you’re an urbanite living in a condo in the sky, these homes are bound to get your dreams and imagination stirring.
Of course, you will also have to check out the Dream Gardens – five landscaping companies from throughout the lower mainland work tirelessly for 72 hours straight to create the most incredible outdoor spaces imaginable. You can wander through the Dream Gardens imagining the perfect paradise in your very own back yard – or 25 sq ft balcony. Whatever floats your boat…
I personally can’t wait to check it out and the BF has been pulling on my sleeve for weeks trying to lock down a night that we can head there together to take in everything the BC Home and Garden Show has to offer.
