A Year Full of Dazzle for F2V

The Field to Vase Dinner Tour says goodbye after a wildly successful 2016 season.

Cheers to another great American Grown Field to Vase (F2V) Dinner Tour season! We are so impressed with the outcome of our second year of spreading the Certified American Grown message across the United States and having dinner with you all. As America gets ready to set their dinner tables for Thanksgiving, we reflect on all that we’re grateful for this year.

We are truly thankful for our dedicated flower farmers, talented floral designers and superb chefs who all contributed to our cause. We are also thankful for the wonderful collaborations and relationships we formed along the way with partners and special sponsors. Our year was filled with many tabletops boasting beautiful Certified American Grown flowers, menus packed with delightful dishes and blooming conversations with incredible floral enthusiasts – we couldn’t have asked for a better group of individuals to make this year of F2V tour a great one.

Lastly, we are thankful for our beloved F2V guests who dined among the flora with us at each and every location. This tour wouldn’t be possible without you, and for that, we thank you tremendously! You are our ambassadors and helped us spread awareness about the importance of buying and supporting American Grown Flowers.

The Field to Vase Dinner Tour is ready to dazzle once again next year. As many of you know, we have already announced and are very excited to be going to Alaska in 2017. On July 29, 2017, we will be at Scenic Place Peonies in Homer, Alaska! You will be blown away with gorgeous views and breathtaking peonies for this ultimate Alaskan F2V adventure!
