Saturday, April 23rd- May 8th, take time to tour and visit Hallmark farm in Warrior for the Decorators’ Showhouse. Tickets may be bought online for 25 dollars in advance or $30 at the door. Parking is provided with a $5 fee. The 565-acre property has a beautiful home, a lake, and a barn that has long been a visible landmark for traveling motorists on Hwy 65.
This fantastic fundraiser had been put on hold for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Alabama Symphony Orchestra is sponsoring the charity event.
What is the Decorators’ Showhouse?
Numerous decorators from the state as well as adjoining areas choose a room and decorate it in their own style. Furniture, wall hangings, flowers, accents, and curtains, are all included to bring out each decorator’s individual vision for the room. The rooms are decorated, but the visual integrity of each room is maintained. There will also be lawn decoration, and additions to porches. The items in the room as well as an entire room of items may be purchased.
Jefferson County and the Alabama Orchestra
The Showcase brings people from all across the state. It is a massive boost for local businesses as well as the decorators. It is well advertised, and local media has promoted the charity event to encourage help for the Orchestra. In the past it has brought in as much as 3 million dollars of donations for the Alabama Symphony. The Decorators’ Showhouse Facebook page provides more information about the venue and a local shuttle that will be available on April 27th and May 4th to provide travel to the ShowHouse.
Not only can you look through the rooms, but on the 30th, Heidi Elnora, owner of a flagship bridal boutique in Birmingham, will host a Bridal dress runway show. Her chic designs and couture wedding gowns are sought after by brides everywhere.
Mayor Ragland and the Hallmark Farm Potential
Warrior’s Mayor had a dream 10 years ago about the Hallmark land and farms. Currently, the land is for sale, and there are many suggestions for ways to incorporate the beauty and benefits for the town. An industrial park, a wedding venue with a hotel behind it, and perhaps even a park. All of these things would make use of the land and contribute to the citizens of Warrior.
We hope to see you there, as many of us at the North Jefferson Post plan to attend!
As I look back, I remember before being married nights of playing tennis at Moncrief park, as I have always…
There are plenty of great traditions in North Jefferson county, from the amazing Gardendale parade to the Fultondale Christmas tree…
