What a beautiful night to remember! On January 28th, Calgary's top media, designers, and bloggers took over The Farmer's House to celebrate the 34th annual Calgary Home + Garden Show preview party. With insider access to the show's upcoming features, farm-to-table nibbles, and interactive gardening DIYs, guests enjoyed an evening of wining and dining with snippets of what to expect when the show comes to town.

This year's Main Stage celebrity presenters include HGTV's Carson Arthur, design duo Janette Ewen and Jef Hancock, local interior designer Heather Draper and floral guru Joanna Tzavaras.

Guests swarmed the Blue Grass Nursery DIY table to try their hand at creating full-sized terrariums - plants, rocks, moss, and all. Participants left the event with their expertly crafted plants in hand. Design one of your own with the experts at Blue Grassy Nursery, who will demonstrate how to build your own indoor gardens or terrariums from start to finish. Register for a workshop taking place in the Corral on our website.

Interiors to Inspire left the crowd wanting more with their adorable distressed garden statues - perfect additions to sparse Calgarian gardens. Our team took their hand at creating new garden friends to add a touch of colour to their home.

Guests sipped and snacked on mouth-watering drinks and high-tea inspired canapes, courtesy of The Farmer's House, Steam Whistle Brewery, and Whitehaven Wines.

To bring colour to our soiree, Main Stage presenter Joanna Tzavaras of Lil' Pink Daisy Florals, created beautiful floral arrangements and a one-of-a-kind vintage floral frame.
