The Southern Home & Garden Expo is back this weekend.

Formerly known as the Construction Expo, sponsored by Wilson Bank & Trust, the Southern Home & Garden Expo will celebrate its 21st year this Friday and Saturday at The Mill at Lebanon.

The event was revamped as the Southern Home & Garden Expo last year to expand offerings, said WB&T VP- Marketing Director and Event Coordinator Becky Jennings. "There are consumers who aren't building a house, but they may want to redecorate a room. This year we also put an emphasis on lawn and garden," she explained, adding they've also brought back workshops on Saturday.

Celebrity Interior Designer Denise Simons will teach a variety of workshops for various parts of the home. Workshops will include Find Your Personal Design Style at 10 a.m., Container Garden Demo at 1 p.m., Beautiful Lawns Made Easy with Matt Bryson of Main Street Landscaping at 2 p.m. and Window Treatment 101 at 3 p.m.

One hundred and fifteen vendors from all over Tennessee, as well as New York, Alabama, and Ohio, will be present at this year's Expo.

Folks will also have the opportunity to register at the door for a variety of prizes from Wilson Bank & Trust. Prizes include a $500 prize, a 60-inch flat screen television, yard tools valued at $300; and a Benjamin Moore pain package valued at $2,500, courtesy of Fakes & Hooker.

The event is free and open to the public on Friday, Feb. 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
