Every American Grown Field to Vase Dinner is special, but the second stop of the 2019 tour at Bloomia USA in King George, Virginia, may have set a new standard for the floral chandelier.
Guests dined under a canopy of 36 color-blocked tulip chandeliers at tables featuring vases overflowing with tulips that mirrored the bloom colors overhead.
The imaginative concept was created by floral designer Kelly Shore of Petals by the Shore, this tour stop’s featured designer.
"Kelly Shore outdid herself," shared Certified American Grown Administrator Kasey Cronquist and emcee of the national Field to Vase Dinner Tour. "Her design vision and passion for our American flower farming families was front, center and overhead at Bloomia. She's a true champion for the cause."
And that was just one aspect of the flora-bundance. Guests arrived at archways and floral photo backdrops bursting with tulips. And the on-site boutonniere bar featured an assortment of Certified American Grown Flowers and Greens for guests to use to create wearable floral swag.
