DOMESTIC DISPLAY: The spring home-tour season kicks off April 24 with the 22nd annual Episcopal Academy House Tour. The self-guided driving excursion offers access to some of the most remarkable homes from Ardmore to Malvern. Caterers at each stop provide appetizers and refreshments, and local florists and floral designers showcase their arrangements. A catered boxed lunch and a boutique with area vendors round out the day. Visit www.episcopalacademy.org.
GROWTH POTENTIAL: As if you needed another reason to think about spring, Chadds Ford artist Ricky Giacco’s NativeCast garden lanters are handcrafted and hand-cast, each suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Giacco even mixes his own eco-friendly concrete, made with sand, shells, pine needles and other recycled materials from our region. The award-winning designer sells his functional pieces only on his website. Visit www.nativecast.com.
