US (CO): The next American grown field to vase dinner

Did you see the headline in the Wall Street Journal’s special edition “The Off Duty Summer 50″ – a guide to outdoor entertaining that hit newsstands on June 20th?

WSJ’s editors named The Field to Vase Dinner Tour as #44 on that inspiring list, headlining the piece “Feast Among the Flora.”

Excitement is clearly building for this celebration of American Grown Flowers, a coast-to-coast dining experience taking place on flower farms across the U.S. The WSJ noted:

"Imagine a long, beautifully set table under a mauve-colored twilight sky, surrounded by fields of blossoms bobbing on a gentle breeze. Isn’t that the sort of dinner party you’d like to attend along with your nearest and dearest? Well, this summer you can. The Field to Vase Dinner Tour, a series of meals set on flower farms across the country, pairs local chefs with local growers. Organized by (Certified) American Grown, a coalition of U.S. flower farms, the dinners are designed to raise awareness about the “Slow Flowers” movement and its commitment to local, seasonal, sustainable floriculture. On July 18, the venue is an herb farm outside Boulder. Colo.; on August 20, a 65,000-square-foot rooftop farm in Brooklyn. Of course each table will be lovingly laid out by a local floral designer, and the ingredients on the plates will be as carefully selected as the blooms in the arrangements. There are six more upcoming dinners, ranging from coast to coast. Find one near you and join in the floral fun."

If that isn’t enough, earlier this month, Food & Wine Magazine highlighted the Field to Vase Dinner Tour, calling it the “Ultimate Al Fresco Dinner Party.” The article continues:

"Warm weather and long days mean it’s time to do some serious al fresco dining. And there’s currently no better way to do it than on the Field to Vase communal dining tour. The cross-country dinner series unites local chefs and regional flower farms for meals as Instagram-worthy as they sound."

Whether you’re a flower farmer, a floral designer, a wholesaler, a flower enthusiast or a foodie in search of an unique dining experience, you are invited to participate in the Field to Vase Dinner Tour.
