A Place to Call Home | A talk with James Farmer

The Blowing Rock Art & History Museum is proud to present a talk and lunch with author and designer James Farmer. This special event will take place at the Blowing Rock Country Club on Friday, July 20, 2018 at 11:00 a.m.

James T. Farmer III is the author of several books including the Wall Street Journal best-selling garden book "A Time To Plant". His latest publication "A Place to Call Home" is his first interior design book featuring eleven homes from Sea Island to Atlanta to St. Louis.

Brought up in the South, James is a professional garden, floral and interior designer; cook; author and lifestyle expert. In addition, Farmer’s work has been published in various magazines and he is a frequent guest on television and radio. Farmer’s natural Southern grace and warm personality light up any room. A skilled and entertaining speaker, Farmer is truly a young and fresh voice for his generation. Whether he’s teaching how to plan the perfect summer picnic, using everyday items to create exquisite tabletops, creating drop-dead gorgeous flower arrangements and wreaths, or making his grandmother’s skillet peach pie, Farmer masterfully guides his audience through the art of elegant garden living. James enjoys signing his books, which will be available following the lecture.
