What a night! On January 21, Vancouver's creative set took over VanDusen Botanical Garden to celebrate the 42nd annual BC Home + Garden Show preview party. With insider access to the show's upcoming features, exciting announcements, and interactive gardening DIYs, it truly was a night to remember. Couldn't make it? Don't fret! We're sharing our favourite moments from the memorable evening here.

The crowd's interest was piqued by the announcement of Main Stage celebrity presenters, including HGTV's Bryan Baeumler, W Network's Todd Talbot, and design duo Janette Ewen and Jef Hancock. The top tier Vancouver Magazine Cooking Stage lineup also had its time to shine, with Chef Ned Bell (YEW) and Chef Trevor Bird (Fable) earning rousing applause.

Guests flocked to By Nature Design's DIY table to try their hand at creating living art. Crafty participants left as certified green thumbs. See them for yourself on Thursday, February 19 at 6pm on the Main Stage.

The Flower Factory wowed the crowd with a detailed DIY of botanical boutonnieres. Everyone left looking sharp.

Guests sipped and snacked on mouth-watering drinks and canapes courtesy of Calabash Bistro, Fentimans, Church & State Wines, and Steamworks Brewery.

To cap off the night, our team squeezed together for a floral-enhanced photo.
