Flower Duet Designs over 125 Vases for 2nd Annual Field to Vase Tour to Promote American Grown Flowers
On April 13, 2016, Casey and I were in Carlsbad, Calif. surrounded by a rainbow of blooming Ranunculus flowers dining on splendid dishes, wine, beer and coffee that were all grown locally. We were two of 145 guests seated for the 2016 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour and we were the floral designers for the event!
The occasion: 2016 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour.
The cause: These nation-wide dinners are being held to build brand awareness to the general public that there is a diverse coalition of U.S. flower farms representing small and large entities across the country. Together, we want to give consumers confidence in the source of their flowers and assure them that the bouquets and bunches they purchase come from a domestic flower farm. The American Grown Flowers coalition’s goal is to create an identifiable, iconic and amazingly beautiful brand that communicates the domestic origins as well as the high quality, freshness and consistency of the flowers and foliage they grow.
