The Fall Dispatch Home & Garden Show goes “on demand” this year, with a virtual exhibit hall and lots of giveaways.

For years, the Fall Columbus Dispatch Home & Garden Show presented by Rosati Windows has been the expo to attend for all things related to outdoor décor, lawn and garden care, home improvement and interior design as homeowners prepare for winter. This year is no different in that respect, but to avoid concerns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Show’s format will change for 2020.

“The health and safety of attendees and vendors at the Fall Home and Garden Show is paramount to us,” says Stephen Zonars, vice president of Ventures Events for Dispatch Media Group, which produces the expo. “That’s why we’ve decided that instead of encouraging guests to come to the show in person, we’re bringing the show to them.”

That’s right—like many events of 2020, the

Emma Roberts looked blooming beautiful at her “magical garden”-themed baby shower in LA on Saturday.

Dressed in a smocked floral midi dress ($478) and matching face mask ($35 for five) from Tory Burch, who also provided the party’s décor, the 29-year-old “American Horror Story” star celebrated her impending arrival with a stylish and socially distanced backyard gathering.

Roberts’ boyfriend Garrett Hedlund — with whom she’s expecting her first child, a baby boy — was on hand for the festivities, as were famous friends including Kristen Stewart and Camila Morrone, according to People.

Floral designer Eric Buterbaugh suspended roses from the trees with blue ribbon and presented the mom-to-be with a vagina-shaped arrangement, while Loria Stern and Little Sparks Cookies provided sweet treats adorned with real pressed flowers and the words “baby boy,” respectively.

“So grateful to my family and pod for making my pregnancy feel so celebrated during such wild

As you look for light fixtures, consider existing finishes and colors. Say you have gold drawer pulls and bronze door hardware. Selecting a fixture with both gold and bronze can pull a room together.

Choosing the proper lighting for your home can take a space without a purpose and transform it. Adding a new floor lamp to brighten up a workspace allows us to work longer hours or enjoy a good book. Installing some wall sconces for softer light will add ambience when entertaining friends or relaxing with good music. Proper lighting sets the mood and makes everything better!

Question: Lighting choices are seemingly unlimited. How does a homeowner go about narrowing down them down?

Answer: There are many things that factor into finding just the right fixture for a space. Final selections take into consideration the design style of the home, existing finishes and colors, ceiling height

Its proximity to Windsor Nature Park was one of the main reasons that drew the nature-loving couple to this estate off Venus Drive.

After returning from a four-year work stint overseas, they felt it was the perfect location to build their home – one that was “modern and understated, and which blended in with the natural surroundings”.

The site conditions, however, were far from ideal. An existing drain cut through the rear of the property and there was a steep slope at the back of the house. The neighbour’s boundary wall also encroached on the plot.

But Mr Edmund Ng of home-grown architecture firm Edmund Ng Architects was able to overcome the technical challenges.

With the original house demolished, the drainage diverted, the boundary issue resolved and the slope backfilled, construction proceeded without a hitch and the new house – a corner terrace with a built-up area of 6,000 sq

THIS Bingley bar has emerged from lockdown with a very different look and a new name.

With floral decorations and ‘Real Queens Fix Each Others’ Crowns’ lit up on a neon sign, The Secret Garden – our Pub of the Week – is particularly popular with female customers. Afternoon tea is served in the daytime and when the sun goes down there’s a bar vibe, with cocktails and Prosecco.

Sammi Elliott bought the venue, opposite Bingley Station, a year ago when it was the Rail Yard. During lockdown she transformed it, with new decor and furniture. Since re-opening as The Secret Garden it’s been so busy she has employed more staff and is taking bookings for Christmas.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Afternoon tea is served during the day

“She’s really changed the vibe of the place, says Sammi’s mum, Cheryl Elliott, who co-owns the venue. “The interior was previously a long booth, Sammi took

There is nothing that says summer better than to be in touch with nature: going to the beach, swimming in a lake or planting flower beds.

Most of us love the casual comfort, color and charm of a garden setting. It is easy to transform your home into a garden oasis with a few simple design moves. It is even easier to refresh your home with a few botanical motifs.



Nature as a guiding theme in decor is classic. The relaxed appeal of outdoor-inspired interiors is one that your family and friends are sure to love.

The easiest and most obvious way to “garden up” your room is to bring in plants and flowers — the more, the better. On one hand, plants are recommended to help improve the quality of the air in a room. On the other hand, select your plants with care, especially if someone in your

Whitechapel, the Victorian-style gin bar with a lush, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-looking interior, is busting out of its cushiony, steampunk style. Given the era of outdoor dining brought on by the coronavirus crisis, the spot is opening a far more casual beer garden in a Tenderloin parking lot, with a dinner menu of U.K. style pub fare and weekend brunch with a breakfast poutine and gin fizzes galore.

Social distancing won’t be a problem while seated at the Barbican.

The new spot is called the Barbican Cocktail & Beer Garden, Whitechapel bar manager Carl Brown tells Eater SF, a tribute to London’s vast performing arts center of the same name. It’s safe to assume that there won’t be any performing arts at San Francisco’s Barbican (live music and other performances are still forbidden by health order), but there will be a beer menu that includes a

Melania Trump announced Monday she will oversee a renovation of the White House Rose Garden, overhauling the iconic greenspace adjacent to the Oval Office and West Wing.

Trump intends to restore the space to more resemble the original design and formation of the Rose Garden, established by President John F. Kennedy, and implemented in 1962 by horticulturist and philanthropist Rachel “Bunny” Mellon. The renovation, which will include excavation, could take several weeks, according to a source familiar with the timeline, and the Rose Garden will, during that time, be out of commission for use.

“The very act of planting a garden involves hard work and hope in the possibility of a bright future,” the first lady said in a statement. “Preserving the history and beauty of the White House and its grounds is a testament to our nation’s commitment to the care of this landscape and our dedication to American
