It’s opening today at 8am SLT and there’s so much to see!

And so much to do.

There is, of course, Shopping. From small cosy malls (located at the four corners of the estate) to luxury mansions and wild fantasy builds, to ultra sleek ultra modern living choices – the Homes and Gardens Expo has it all.

And then there’s gardens.

There’s also the Breedables Market (and yes, you can shop here too).

There are Talks. And Classes. And Shopping. And entertainment from great Second Life musicians and djs.

There’s a Hunt. There’s the Decorating Competition – enter yourselves or feel inspired by what you see!

And when you’ve been inspired, you can of course … go Shopping!

There’s the daily Lantern Release (at 4pm SLT) – a quiet time to reflect and remember what this event is all about – raising fund for Relay for Life of Second Life – and supporting survivors and caregivers.

There’s a monorail to ride so that you can travel easily between regions. And Shop.

And there are surprises still to come.

Did we mention the Shopping?

And it all opens at 8am SLT today!

 

Calling All Designers! Join the Conversation at the Home and Garden Expo with Prim Perfect!


Prim Perfect and Designing Worlds have run talks at the Home and Garden Expo since (gulp) 2011 … and we’d like to invite YOU to be a part of this year’s series of talks with designers, landscapers and creatives within the Home and Garden market.

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day. If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions and show and tell events. It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas. We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

We are also planning to have some of our popular “Show and Tell” events and hopefully some panel discussions on Second Life.

Closing date: Tuesday March 12th.

It’s BACK! the Home and Garden Decorating Competition will be returning!

And it’s bigger and better than ever!

Last year for the first time, we introduced our Home and Garden Decorating Competition – and we were blown away by the standard of work you all produced!

Not only that – the competition also raised the amazing sum of 137, 142 Lindens, a little over US$551.

So this year it will be back, bigger and better than ever with sixteen homes for our finalists to decorate!

The results for the Home and Garden Expo Decorating Contest are in and we are proud to announce the finalists!

They will now be building until 12 noon SLT on Sunday 27th May. After that, voting will begin!

We had a huge response to the contest, and a lot of entries – sadly, with only 12 houses to decorate this year, we had to make a selection.

The final group were chosen by a raffle draw made earlier today by Nikki Mathieson, the organizer of the Home and Garden Expo, who drew the names out of the equivalent of a Second Life hat (a random name generator script).

We are sorry to say that that all those who entered haven’t made the finals but you have inspired us to set up a bigger contest next year, when we hope you’ll feel encouraged to enter again!
