Things To Love About This Year’s Birmingham Home & Garden Show

The Birmingham Home & Garden Show returns with an all new show February 14-17 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex.

The 2013 edition includes celebrity guests, garden and landscaping tips and the latest innovations in home improvement products. The top, not-to-miss features are:

• On the Food Stage, meet Chris Crary, of Bravo TV’s Top Chef. Chef Crary was the fan favorite on Season 9 garnering over 3 million votes.  He has worked as a personal chef to Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter and Chelsea Handler. 

Currently Chef de Cuisine at Whist Restaurant in the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, Chris Crary learned how to cook before he could drive. Crary’s cooking showcases his knack for bringing out the inherent qualities of ingredients.

• Get landscape design advice from Chris Olsen.  Landscape Designer Chris H. Olsen has over 25 years of landscape architecture and interior design experience. In 2003, Chris opened Botanica, his home & garden store in Arkansas.  Chris’s exceptional designs were the recipient for the People’s Choice Award and numerous other honors at the Arkansas Garden Show for over 10 years running. Outstanding use of color is a trademark of Chris’ talents. Chris dares to be different with his unique designs.

• Experience the wonder of The Living Fountain:  A statue of a beautiful woman who transforms herself with magical elegance into a Living Fountain. As music plays, delicate jets of water appear from her fingertips and a shimmering spray cascades from the top of her head in this beautifully choreographed performance. Indoors or outdoors the Living Fountain makes for a truly enchanting experience
