One of the country’s most famous hosts has given her seal of approval to a series of dinners that celebrate flowers grown in the U.S.
“The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour is setting a new standard for garden parties,” according to a recent story posted to Martha Stewart’s website. “Each event includes a tour of the flower farm, DIY demonstrations, libations, a locally sourced meal at an impeccably decorated table, good company and flowers to take home. However, the best part of the dinner tour is arguably the setting — when else do you have the opportunity to dine in a field of blooming flowers?”
The Field to Vase series is an effort put together by Certified American Grown, an organization that encourages shoppers to choose domestically grown flowers. Now in its third year, the series kicks off on March 11, at Len Busch Roses in Plymouth, Minnesota, and includes a total of seven events, culminating Nov. 18 at FernTrust in Seville, Florida.
“We’re really excited to bring the event to Minnesota,” SAF member Patrick Busch, owner of Len Busch Roses, told the reporter at Martha Stewart. “We’ll be utilizing our greenhouses that we grow tulips in. We’re going to set up a 200-foot table surrounded by about a million tulips.” Read the full story.
