Re-living Carlsbad

Our guests enjoyed beautiful scenery, great food and wonderful people

Last week’s dinner at The Flower Fields in Carlsbad did not disappoint. Our floral designers, Flower Duet created an ombre tablescape with color variations that complemented the amazing rows of colors that surrounded the table at The Flower Fields.


The beautiful Carlsbad tablescape designed by Flower Duet.

Floral design team and sisters, Kit and Casey of Flower Duet not only provided our guests with gorgeous flowers for dinner, but our guests enjoyed a lively flower crown demonstration during the reception.

Flower farmer Mike Mellano gave tours to guests prior to the start of dinner.  Avid gardeners in attendance were thrilled to get advice from Mike Mellano and the gracious Flower Duet team.

Wonderful #F2V dinner goers enjoying blooming table conversation in celebration of American Grown flowers.

The food was met with rave reviews from the diners who enjoyed multiple passed appetizers from Terra Catering, served with delicious Mattucci Wine and stunning Bagby Beer.  And dessert course was served with locally grown organic coffee from Good Land Organics, a first for the Field to Vase Dinner series as it is rare to find an American coffee farmer. Guests heard from Jay Ruskey, the coffee farmer, as he explained how the “berry” on the coffee bean effects the flavor of the coffee.

Our favorite moment of the night; having dinner in the middle of a gorgeous American Grown flower farm with the sunset as the most perfect backdrop.
