Sugar Land Home & Garden Show promises something for everyone at weekend-long event
SUGAR LAND, Texas – The 7th Annual Sugar Land Home & Garden Show offers everything a homeowner could want in the way of home improvement. From outdoor patio design and gardening tips to interior color and kitchen appliances, the Stafford Centre at 10505 Cash Road in Stafford will host exhibitors and vendors in a convenient one-stop inspiration and information event on Jan. 28 and 29.
“With more than 200 home improvement contractors from the local market, the show is sure to have something for everyone,” said Tony Wood, president of Texwood Shows Inc., producer of the Sugar Land Home & Garden Show. “Whether it’s one room, the whole house or the entire property, there will be plenty of experts available to answer questions and get homeowners pointed in the right direction.”
If home organization made its way to the annual New Year’s resolution list, those in attendance will have an opportunity to hear words of wisdom from Lisa Giesler, a Certified Professional Organizer, owner of Houston-based A Time and Place for Everything, and award-winning author of “My Life is a Mess: Organization 101” and “Uncluttered: Discovering Strength and Purpose in the Chaos of Life.” On each day of the show Giesler will present “Your Biggest Organizing Questions Answered” addressing the most-often asked question of all: How do I get started?
“I have seen and heard a lot of things in my many years as an organizer and I’ll share some insight to help those attending my presentation get going,” said Giesler, who has been featured on “Great Day Houston,” ABC’s Live Well Network and various publications, and will take the Fort Bend Lifestyles & Homes Presentation Stage to discuss what she calls the “Big 3” areas: closet, home office and kitchen. To help kick-start their home organization, one attendee at each show will win a $50 gift certificate to The Container Store.
Homeowners who desire an interior makeover will be able to learn from some of the best about products made specifically for residential living. A Sherwin-Williams Certified Color Consultant will take the stage each day of the show to demonstrate the company’s ColorSnap Selection System.
The Thermador Live Cooking Stage presented by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, will feature Chef Michelle Morris, Ferguson Enterprises’ in-house chef, who will cook up some tasty treats four times each day using the latest Thermador induction cooktop and steam oven appliances.
