I think I can speak for all of us when I say we are READY for spring! Our weather hasn’t been spring-like yet…. but you can still get inspired for the upcoming warmer weather at the Cincinnati Home & Garden Show at Duke Energy Convention Center.
I originally found out about the One Night, One Craft D.I.Y. session from my friend Paige from Cincy Whimsy. Her site has been a great resource to help me find out about unique adventures downtown.
This winter weather has me really looking forward to spring. I picked a snowy day to daydream of warmer temps at the Krohn Avant Garden Spring Show.
Experience a fresh and creative spring landscape at Krohn Conservatory’s 2014 Spring Show, the ‘Avant-Garden.’ The show will highlight a unique variety of exotic spring bulbs, fragrant shrubs, and bright annuals that are not commonly used in the typical spring garden. Red crown imperials, twisted grasses, water hyacinths, brilliant blue delphiniums, and black tulips are just some of the plants to look for among the exciting palette of blossoming plants.
Recycled materials are used in an ‘avant-garde’ style to enhance the imaginative landscape. Basket frames and tomato cages are transformed into moss-covered chandeliers, striking flower sculptures are created from layered glassware, and paint cans are repurposed to even hang plants upside down. Enjoy an early spring at the Krohn Conservatory and be inspired by the ‘Avant-Garden!’
I absolutely loved the creative repurposing of plates and glasses!
This wine bottle display was also colorful and fun!
There are also bowls with flower vases that made creative mushrooms.
The Avant Garden Spring Show was a refreshing way to spend the afternoon and a great reminder that spring will be coming soon.
