April 17, 2018

The Columbia Garden Club Foundation is excited to host four of the best American tastemakers in architecture, interior design, and floral design for its symposium and luncheon on April 17, 2018.

Please join celebrated architect Bobby McAlpine, award-winning interior designer Beth Webb, and Veranda Editor in Chief Clinton Smith for a spirited and thoughtful conversation on the true meaning of home in today’s world. Hear about what inspires them now, how they create homes with meaning and a true sense of place, as well as how the tenets of Southern hospitality and graciousness influence their design work across the country and beyond.

Following the talk, they will each be signing copies of their latest books: Poetry of Place (McAlpine); An Eye for Beauty (Webb), and Inspired by Color (Smith).

Leading floral and event designer, Karin Jeffcoat, will follow with a discussion and demonstration of her process for composing her signature organic, straight-from-the garden, tumbling designs that evoke the beauty of our southern landscape.

Proceeds benefit the Columbia Garden Club Foundation’s support of civic beautification projects. The Columbia Garden Club Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

In spite of weathering two damaging hurricanes in the past 20 months, bringing heavy wind, flooding, salt intrusion and then snow and multiple weeks of below-freezing weather, Low Country gardeners were not deterred even though local landscapes were altered, many permanently. “Gardeners are amazing, adaptable, persistent people who will produce greenery and blooms no matter what is thrown their way,” said Sheila Drouin, the 2018 Garden-A-Day Chair.

“For a week in June, thanks to ten homeowners, you will be experiencing the splendor that is Beaufort. And, it’s absolutely free!” said Jane Culley, President, The Beaufort Garden Club.

Garden visitors are asked to not bring pets.
