Home Blogger Meet Up
Four rock star home bloggers will be taking to the Kings’ Chapel Parade of Homes site to weave their Do-It-Yourself (DIY) magic on a child’s wishes Christmas tree as part of Nashville’s premier home tour open daily December 6-21, with the trees benefiting Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee, and in partnership with the national Hometalk social network and Nashville’s StyleBlueprint.
Prior to the parade opening, on Wednesday, December 3, home bloggers Kristie Barnett, TheDecorolgist, Jenna LaFevor, RainOnATinRoof, Lesley Warren, ChaoticallyCreative, and KariAnne Wood, ThistlewoodFarms, are participating in a Blogger DIY Christmas Tree Challenge themed to children’s actual wishes for an invitation only event which includes a private sneak peek tour of the four parade homes and a Blogger High Tea Meet Up being hosted by Kirkland’s home décor store.
With a budget of $500 and gorgeous trees donated by Balsam Hill, the bloggers have taken on the wishes of four children with life-threatening medical conditions whose wishes are the circus, fashion model, Greece and the Grammys. The bloggers are turning them into themed Christmas trees which will be part of an on-going silent auction during the parade benefiting Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee.
After the bloggers install their trees into the four parade homes on December 3, at noon, sneak peek tours will be given followed up by a Blogger High Tea Meet Up at the scenic Kings’ Chapel Clubhouse with food provided by on-site chef, Brian Cochrane.
Kings’ Chapel Developer John Powell said home lifestyle bloggers will be given the unique opportunity to view the homes prior to it opening to the public on Saturday, December 6 and meet these incredibly talented women.
“With four builders and designers working hard to pack the parade homes with spectacular array of great home ideas, this is the first time bloggers have been invited to share their talents while offering the blogger community a behind-the-scenes look at the parade houses,” Powell said. “Our Kings’ Chapel team is committed to funding the wishes of four children, so this DIY blogger event will also ultimately benefit the kids of Make-A-Wish when the bloggers’ trees are auctioned off.”
