2014 Athens Home and Garden Show

If you missed the Athens Home and Garden Show last weekend at the Classic Center, you really missed out. Catch the highlights below.


  • The interior design students from Athens Technical College and the University of Georgia competed in the White Room Challenge. The White Room Challenge was to transform a 12 x 14 space into a room for the home. Students had a virtual budget of $1500.00. Students were to shop at the two Athens Habitat for Humanity Restores for furniture and accessories and then transform them. Dalton Carpet One provided the flooring choices. It was a lot of fun to watch the students work on their project over the course of the weekend and truly transform the space. Congratulations to Athens Technical College on their win!!!
  • Garden South and College Pro Landscaping outdid themselves with their booths. The landscaping ideas, cool plants and water features were incredible!


  • Cupcake Wars! Culinary students from Athens Technical College competed and baked some delicious cupcakes! I sure hope they do this again next year. It was a hit!


  • Several booths had fun ways to win prizes, photo booths, popcorn and fun games.


  • Kids crafts: woodworking and pottery. There truly was something for everyone!


  • Girl Scout cookies. I mean, who can resist?!


This years event was wonderful! Many thanks to Susan Bogardus for heading up such a large event and the Athens Area Home Builders Association for sponsoring this event each year. If you missed it this year, make a point to come next year. Im sure you wont be disappointed. Did you attend the show this year? Id love to hear what your favorite part was. Shoot me an email at
