Wow! I can’t believe it’s the last weekend of the 19th annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival already. Seventy-five days go by pretty fast!

We’ve had a wonderful time, with all the seminars, colorful plant and flower displays, beloved Disney topiaries, brilliant botanicals, unique gardens, and especially the appearances by stars from our favorite shows on HGTV, our presenting sponsor. They’ve just been fantastic!

This weekend features an appearance by Genevieve Gorder, who, along with her thriving professional design business in New York City, is the star of not one, but two hit HGTV shows: Dear Genevieve and HGTV Design Star.

Earlier this year, we caught up with Genevieve in Los Angeles where she was filming this season’s “Design Star,” new episodes of which start airing Tuesday, May 29. The producers of the show graciously allowed us to tape on the actual Design Star “judging” stage. It was very exciting to be in the place where HGTV favorites like David Bromstad, Antonio Ballatore and current champ Meg Caswell all became household names.

Genevieve talked with us about how her discussions this weekend, titled “Turning Your Landscape Inside Out,” will focus on using the aesthetics of creating a great landscape in your home decorating.


Genevieve was just great. If you get a chance, you should really come see her at the Festival. Today, Saturday, and Sunday, she will lead seminars at the Festival Center, presented by HGTV.

You can also catch her on the new season (Season 6) of Design Star, on Tuesdays this summer at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, starting on May 29, and on Dear Genevieve, Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT.
