    Make plans to attend the 2nd annual Designer Showhouse for the Arts. This year's Showhouse is the home of Seaside town founders Daryl & Robert Davis, located at 115 Seaside Avenue, just two blocks east of Central Square. All proceeds from the Designer Showhouse for the Arts benefit the Cultural Arts Association of Walton County, the umbrella organization that supports the arts through leadership, advocacy, funding, programs and education.



    On Friday, May 28, the Showhouse opening night party is "A Black & White Affair" in keeping with the elegantly retro feel of the home and the inspiration behind each designer's creation. Classic martinis, champagne, jazz by Nicole Chilemmi on the baby grand piano and hors d'oeuvres by Crush will set just the right tone to the opening of this year's Showhouse. Dress is black & white, resort casual. Purchase $40 tickets in advance at CulturalArtsAssociation.com.

    Fifteen designers have taken inspiration from icons from the 1940's to the 1960's, legends like Ernest Hemingway, Audrey Hepburn, the Duke & Duchess of Windsor and Truman Capote. This year’s designers are Melissa Quinn Bartlett, Bohlert-Massey, Holly Shipman, Libby Baker, Seleta Hayes Howard, Dale Trice, Kati Lockley and Tina Vital of Design Services of Florida, Eastern Lake Nursery, Dragonfly Designs, Vera Bradley with Baekgaard & Lynn Nesmith, Rachel Craige, Bill Musso Design Group, Pizitz with Shabby Slips, Tammy Massey and Paige Schnell, Anna Kay Porch & Bess Marshall of Tracery Interiors.

    The Showhouse will be open Saturday, May 29 – July 4, each Wednesday through Saturday, 12:00 – 5:00pm. Admission is $20, $15 for CAA Members and $10 for children under 13. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at CulturalArtsAssociation.com. Parking is along Smolian Circle. Follow signs to the Showhouse at 115 Seaside Avenue.

    I'm looking forward to volunteering here today between noon and 5 p.m. Local artists and designers always impress. Eastern Lake Nursery does a wonderful job. They are the best around, especially with native plants and professional landscaping. It will be a treat to be in the Davis home. Join CAA if you haven't already. See you at 115 Seaside Avenue.

    Many of the designers are offering a 20% discount on the items in their rooms. When you get to the Showhouse, ask house manager Lizzy which rooms are offering this great discount!

    And don't forget to say "Capote" at the door!

    Only 2 1/2 days left!
