The first 50 to arrive will receive a free copy of Rivers' latest book, "Better Homes and Gardens New Decorating." Following her presentation, Rivers will be available discuss decorating ideas and autograph books. Rivers was founding editor of the Better Homes and Gardens collection of 40 magazines. Perhaps her most significant footprint on the publishing world is her “100 Ideas” series of magazines, including “100 Decorating Ideas Under $100,” “100 Romantic Styles,” “100 Cottage Styles,” and “100 Before and After.” Before the public event, Rivers will also speak to the Furnitureland South sales and design consultants, an audience of nearly 200 people responsible for assisting customers from 50 states and 20 countries with their design projects in the world's largest home furnishings showplace. Customers who purchase one or more items from the Better Homes and Gardens Collection at Furnitureland South between Rivers’ September visit and the end of this year will receive a complementary one-year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Many people recognize Rivers from her nearly 100 television appearances on programs such as "Home Matters," "Your Home Studio," and the "Better Homes and Gardens Show." She conducts hands-on decorating seminars to organizations, companies and on numerous news programs. Her career has included editorial stints at Successful Farming and Decorative Woodcrafts magazines; creating such books as "Traditional American Crafts" and numerous holiday titles; launching Better Homes and Gardens real estate service; and developing the Creative Collection, a series of holiday, hobby and decorating magazines for which she is best known. During her tenure at Decorative Woodcrafts, she was instrumental in developing 25 additional magazine titles under the Wood magazine umbrella group. She now serves as contributing editor to numerous publications and as consultant to the Better Homes and Gardens. A self-described compulsive home decorator, gardener and antique collector, she enjoys taking her ideas on the road to share her passions with other enthusiasts.
