The first tab I hit when I checked out the Better Homes and Gardens Live website was the "Plan Your Day" tab. With six live stages and workshops, 250 exhibitors, kids' zone, a cooking zone, pets, gardening, crafts, shopping; wow. A dizzying array of options for the whole family.

I love a good hands-on workshop and live demonstration, especially when it's by some of my TV favourites such as Tara Dennis and Rob Palmer.

Live home decorating and DIY advice, with Tara Dennis and Rob Palmer

Fast Ed, Karen Martini, Jason Hodges, Dr Harry, Graham Ross, and Johanna Griggs will also be at the show, in person, as they "share the tips and advice you need to bring your home and garden ideas to life..." With all of that creativity and talent in one place, I'm sure to come away a pro. Well, I'm sure to come away motivated at least.

So what project is waiting for you? A raised veggie garden? Painting the kitchen? Kids' homework corner?

All workshop sessions are free to attend with your entry ticket, but numbers are limited, so get on to that "Plan Your Day" tab, and get to your favourites early to secure a seat.
