In our new episode of Designing Worlds, we are paying a second visit to the Home and Garden Expo. The Expo ran from 27th February to 21st March, and was a fabulous event with amazing displays of homes and furnishings, gardens and landscaping, and a range of art displays.

Join us at 2pm today Monday 29th March when you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds. Or join us for our Watch Party in the Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams at 2pm SLT.

In this show, we explore the beautiful Designing Worlds cafe, in a building created by Danny Bourne, and landscaped and decorated for us by undercoverlady, visit the fun location of Waffleville (created for tiny.dinkie/petite designers and shoppers) with Kaerri Rae, organiser of the Expo, and talk to Stingray Raymaker, Ambassador for the American Cancer Society in Second Life.

And we also take a look at the Home Decorating Contest, talking to four of the contestants: Prokofy Neva, Terra Tepper, Madison Granger and Corvi Ashdene. Wildstar Beaumont has also supplied one of his wonderful slideshows of the decorated homes too! To find out the results … see this post!

Back by Popular Demand – Talks in the Expo Theatre

After Tuesday’s very popular talk by residents of Bellisseria in the Theatre on Hope 3, we have rescheduled our talks for the weekend.

First of all we have the return of our Bellisserian friends to talk about life on the continent, in terms of design, community and events.

Then, on Sunday 21st March, at 2pm SLT, we will have our final Talk, a Show and Tell event, where where creators can bring their work and display and discuss it with the audience. These events are always very popular – and more so this time, perhaps, because we will also be releasing the names of the winners of the Home & Garden Expo Decorating Contest.

Here are the finalists for the Home Decorating Contest!

Each contestant (or team) can decorate in any style they wish that suits their house, but they MUST include AT LEAST THREE items purchased from RFL vendors at the Home and Garden Expo.

People will vote for the final winner by donating to a kiosk set outside each of the houses. Each Linden donated to Relay for Life in these kiosks will count as a vote.

Timeline
1. Decorating to take place between noon on March 6th – the end of March 12th.
2. Voting will run from March 13th – the end of March 17th. Votes will be placed by adding Lindens into the kiosk in front of each house.
3. The result will be announced on March 18th.

In the meantime, why not take a look at what the decorators accomplished last time?

It's time … to ride the lanterns – and Party!

Well, it will be time at 4pm SLT today, Sunday 22nd March.

Throughout the weeks of the Home and Garden Expo, we have had calm, peaceful times at 4pm each day when the lanterns are released. It provided a space for meditation and reflection. We thought of those who have gone before us in the fight against cancer, and also those who are fighting cancer, or supporting others through it.

Today, as the Expo comes to an end, we will celebrate this event with one last explosion of joy and thanksgiving for all those we love and have loved, all those who have stood together with us on the fight.

Tonight, with special music supplied by DaveOSaurus, we will watch those lanterns rise … and some us will RIDE them into the night sky.

And then we will come down into the gardens at the Designing Worlds cafe and dance until 6pm!

We’ll also be announcing the result of the Home and Garden Expo Decoration Story competition – so don’t miss it!

4pm SLT: Lantern Release Ceremony
Every day at 4pm, there will be a special lantern release ceremony from the roof of the Main Theatre at the Expo.
Sometimes people speak, but often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn. Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.

5pm SLT: Chelsea Malibu
Chelsea is going to be talking about that immensely useful tool – AVSitter for Consumers
