Lake homes and cabins

If you own a second home — or hope to someday — you’ll find resources aplenty at the Lake Home & Cabin Show starting Friday. The three-day “lifestyle experience” features more than 250 exhibitors showcasing everything for the lake home, cottage or cabin, from furnishings and decor, to building, remodeling and landscaping resources, to recreational products.

Special presentations include music by Michael Monroe, cooking demonstrations and samples by “Getaway Gourmet” Patrick Moore; seminars on building, landscaping, cabin inheritance and nature photography; and a presentation by author Neil Johnson (“Resorts of Minnesota”) on the state’s resort history and tradition. (For a complete list of events and times, visit www.lakehomeandcabinshow.com).

Admission is $12 ($2 off coupons are available at www.lakehomeandcabinshow.com); $5 for ages 5-15 and free for ages 4 and under. Show hours are 2-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Feb. 9 and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 10, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, 1301 2nd Av. S., Mpls.

Color trends

What are today’s hottest hues? And how can you effectively incorporate them into your decor? Mark Masica of Hirshfield’s and interior designer Jennifer Ball of Gabberts Design Studio are teaming up for a seminar Saturday at Gabberts.

Guests will learn about current color trends, and can enter to win free paint and a professional painter to paint one room.

The seminar is free, but reservations are requested, 952-928-3123. “Color Trends” will be offered at 1 p.m. Saturday at Gabberts, 3501 Galleria, Edina.

Vintage bridal

Planning a wedding? Creative couples who seek an alternative to budget-busting, cookie-cutter nuptials now have a new resource: Flea Market Style Weddings, a sister publication to Flea Market Style.

The glossy periodical, edited by homegrown junk maven Ki Nassauer, showcases stylish ways to incorporate vintage and flea-market finds into unique celebrations.

In the premiere issue, you’ll learn how to use vintage keys as bubble blowers, turn old silver and pewter trophies into vases and even make stunning one-of-a-kind bouquets out of crocheted doilies, ostrich feathers, antique jewelry or old maps.

There’s plenty of eye candy, including lavish photos of vintage bridal gowns, decade by decade, and couples’ real-life weddings, from a barn dance to a genteel Southern-style reception.

And if you’re new to junking and aren’t sure where to start, the back of the book includes a state-by-state shopping guide to flea markets, antique fairs and shops. The issue sells for $9.95 on newsstands.
