The 2017 Bachman's Holiday Ideas House

Christmas is nearly here and it's time to share my visit 
to the 2017 Bachman's Holiday Ideas House tour! 
The theme this time was "Dressed In Christmas Greenery"! 

Bachman's 2017 Holiday Ideas House- Itsy Bits And Pieces


If it is your first time seeing an Ideas House tour, Bachman's is a long standing home, floral, and garden business with several branches in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.  Three times a year they hold an Ideas House in what was a 1920's era Bachman's family home on the flagship property in Minneapolis.  Their designers transform the house seasonally to showcase new trends, some vintage, and repurposed items...and nearly everything is for sale in the house, or the retail stores. $1 from each $5 ticket from this house went to Hats & Mittens- warming bodies and hearts- creating a welcoming world for kids.  They were also taking hats and mittens in collection bins!

Are you ready for the tour?  We'll start in the front porch!
As usual, I'll let the photos do most of the talking.
(Yes, that IS an old car top rack.)

  5. You know I love the red accents! I have some brown shutters similar to what you showed on the wall and I think that's a great idea. Might have to dig mine out of the closet. Mine aren't that long. These folks always have the most clever ideas! Thanks for always bringing them to us all.

  9. I ALWAYS look forward to these posts of yours about the Bachman house. I sent a copy of that picture of the car rack with the wood and lights on it to my son. He loves the idea and is always doing things like that.
