Be Inspired was the theme for the 2017 show and inspiration was everywhere, from the beautiful garden where amazing experiences awaited, to magnificent luncheons with entertaining speakers, to educational Antique Academies with knowledgeable antiques exhibitors. Mark D. Sikes, Sophie Donelson and Shane Connolly all provided lively and engaging presentations on how to design beautiful and timeless interiors and how to create one-of-a-kind floral arrangements with an organic approach. To close out the weekend, Sunday’s Garden Mixer featured chef Grant Hon and mixologist Tyler Fry, who teamed up to present a garden-inspired food and drink menu. For the first time in show’s history, the net income exceeded $650,000.
