Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques & Garden Fair

Next week, I will be in Chicago to attend the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques & Garden Fair. I am honored to be joining Marisa Marcantonio of Stylebeat and Emily Evans Eerdmans for a Style Blogger Panel Discussion, which will be moderated by Julia Reed.  (This is major for me because as you might remember, my neighbors and I hosted a party in Julia Reed's honor, although Julia was fêted in absentia.)

The event, which will be held at the Garden's Regenstein Center, will feature more than 100 exhibitors who will be selling both garden and home decorations, not to mention garden displays that have been crafted along the theme of "Color in the Garden: An Artist's View".  Event speakers will include designer Michael Smith (who will be speaking next Friday at 11 a.m.) and landscape designer Charles Stick (his lecture takes place on Saturday at 11 a.m.)  Our blogger panel discussion takes place next Saturday at 2pm, with a book signing event featuring Emily and Julia to follow.

If you live in the area, I do hope that you will attend. It is sure to be a wonderful event, and Marisa, Emily, and I would love to meet you.  For more information on the event, please visit the Chicago Botanic Garden website.
