The Garden Club of Virginia is throwing a fabulous party and you’re invited! Symposium 2015 is Monday, Feb. 2-Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2014 at the Williamsburg Lodge in Colonial Williamsburg. This three-day celebration of Virginia includes short courses, excursions and lectures. Topics include gardening, floral design, landscape design, interior design, Virginia history and conservation successes.

Ticket holders can go behind-the-scenes at Colonial Williamsburg art museums and visit a LEED-certified building at The College of William and Mary. Guided garden walks, and cooking and tasting demonstrations will take place at Taste Studio at Colonial Williamsburg.

A Virginia fashion design industry runway show will feature top commonwealth designers at an evening of fashion, food and meet-the-designer fun. At the “Photos and Flowers Cocktail Party,” Scenic Virginia photo contest-winning images will be displayed along with flower arrangements inspired by the photographs. Landscape and interior design expert James Farmer will work with the Colonial Williamsburg products team to create tablescapes for porch living.

Symposium 2015 Williamsburg’s grand finale is Snipped! — an iron-man flower arranging competition by noted American flower arrangers:

• Michael Grim, co-owner of The Bridgehampton Florist and floral consultant for Ina Garten’s Food Network show, Barefoot Contessa.

• Sybil Sylvester, owner of Wildflower Designs and photo stylist for Southern Accents and Southern Living.

• James Farmer, landscape and interior design consultant; author whose books include A Time to Plant, A Time to Cook and Porch Living; and editor-at-large for Southern Living

Live music from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s will be provided by the Smith Wade Band.

Flower arrangements will be judged by Flower Magazine Editor Margot Shaw, Colonial Williamsburg floral design Director Clark Taggart, Richmond floral guru David Pippin and Frank Robinson, GCV honorary member and president and CEO of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

Symposium 2015 attendees will also enjoy VIP shopping opportunities in Merchants Square, the Symposium 2015 Boutique and the SCARPA designer shoe trailer, as well as lunches and cocktail parties.
