Sights and Sounds from the 2014 Michigan International Women's Show

NOVI, Mich. -- I had the most wonderful time at the 2014 Michigan International Women's Show, which was held at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich. I was surprised at how many men attended the show. I expected maybe five, but there were quite a few. Perhaps, the women dragged their men, only kidding.
The first thing I noticed was the parking lot was jam packed. I could hardly find a parking spot. Inside was the same. However, I did get to see all the things I wanted to see. As I walked around, I particularly liked the booth with the real butterflies in the picture frame. Of course, they died naturally and were framed behind glass. They were beautiful with all the colors.
There were so many booths that filled all the halls at the Suburban Collection Showplace. From free haircuts, hair stylists with curling irons, makeup artists, massage therapists, massaging pillows, ring cleaning, chocolate candies and fudge, and free samples of dips and sauces. There were so many free samples and goodies to take home.
I stayed to watch the Kitchen Craft demonstration and learned how to cook more healthy recipes. I also tried some wine at the wine tasting booth. I watched the program at the Varicose & Spider Vein Center about treatments. I also had my ring cleaned at one booth.
Later, I stayed for the presentation of gardening tips from Nancy Szerlag, who is a Master Gardener and Garden Columnist for The Detroit News for the past 17 years. She gave advice on picking your pot container for flowers and how to water, fertilize and keep them healthy. She told us how to pick the right plants with the correct light requirements for any location around your house.
Szerlag gave us three tips for the perfect potted plant. One is the thriller: plants that have height for the center of the pot, they are the star of the show. Second is the filler: fills in around the pot and adds color and texture. And the third is the spiller: drapes over the sides of the pot which adds grace and movement.
All in all, it was a wonderful day. It's everything for women, by women and about women, but perhaps your guy would enjoy it too.
The dates for next year's show have already been set: April 30 - May 3, 2015. Mark your calendars now!
