Greetings from the International Home and Houseware’s Show! I’m sitting in the press room patiently(im) waiting for the show to start. I will be taking pics, videos and blogging away so that you can have an inside view to all this kitchenware excitement! So, stay tuned for more updates!
12:00pm – Update…
Taking a quick break for a media lunch and wanted to take a minute to blog about the morning.
Three main trends so far:
1. Color- Bringing color to the kitchen via cookware, bakeware and fun gadgets.
2. Eco- Keeping it ‘green’ with chemical free coatings such as ceramic and of course PFOA free surfaces.
3. Family Fun!- I found one of my favorite trends in the Wilton booth… Treat Pops!! Fun and MUCH easier than cake pops (for me anyway).
Here are a few pics of my favorite things.
Wrapping up today. What a great day at the Show! The highlight was meeting Duff Goldman. Such a huge fan of his. I am amazed at his level of talent! He showed me a pic of a full size Nascar cake that he did last week for Nascar. FULL SIZE!! CAKE! Stop and comprehend that for a moment. Amazing. He is continuing his quest to take professional level cake decorating to the masses. Fun stuff. Details to come on that in a future blog. Now off to dinner with old friends from my Kitchenware buying life. More Houseware’s Show madness and mayhem to come!
