pop the cork

Each year, the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show brings in top speakers from around the country. Thanks to an impressive line-up of past speakers, attendees have come to anticipate the announcement of our speakers each year with great excitement.

Who will it be this year?

Our Friday speaker, Mark D. Sikes, an interior designer based out of LA, is the owner of a certain patio, featuring boxwood and blue and white patio furniture, on one of my favorite Veranda magazine covers. An instagram sensation, Mark was commissioned by Reese Witherspoon to design the adorable Draper James stores. His new clothing line, MDS STRIPES is everything! Mark's new book, Beautiful, was tucked in several places at the gathering, and looked beautiful indeed, in every instance.

On Saturday, Shane Connolly, official florist to Her Majesty, the Queen of England, will be doing a floral demonstration. Shane was the artistic director for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and is as charming as you would imagine.

Back by popular demand, Omaha Steaks will be presenting on Sunday with Chef Grant Hon. Grant's demonstration will once again include food preparation, and the meal is sure to be another big hit.

The images above feature the dining room table. I was so excited to have the opportunity to share these beautiful tables with you! Here are a few photos from the kitchen table.

That tulipiere!
