Flower Duet Designs Florals for American Grown Field to Vase Dinner in Carlsbad


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 set­ting: The Flower Fields owned by the Ecke Fam­i­ly and farmed by Mel­lano & Com­pa­ny.

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.
