I have not attended any of these but I have had similar experiences at flower farms and if you can get a ticket, or two, for one of these events they are truly magical.
Magical does not even begin to describe what it’s like to dine amongst a sea of ranunculus overlooking the Pacific Ocean. For the second year in a row, the Field to Vase Dinner is returning to The Flower Fields of Carlsbad to host our special dinner amongst their flowers. Last year, this dinner quickly sold out, so book early (now) to ensure a seat at the table.
American Grown Flowers, food and wine will take center stage on this stop along a dinner tour that The Wall Street Journal is calling a “Feast Among the Flora.” The evening will focus on celebrating the idea that the flowers at the center of the table should be as fresh, local and sustainable as the food on your plate.
A passionate flower farmer and advocate for sustainable farming practices, Mike Mellano, PhD of Mellano & Company will offer guests and intimate look into what it means to be a California flower farmer and what it takes to farm his renouned, vibrant and fragrant ranunculus.
Guests will sip on locally sourced wine over lively conversation with like-minded dinner guests and will feast on an artisanal, locally sourced meal along a table festooned in floral designs from flowers freshly picked on-site.
After a four course meal served family style and insightful talks and discussions from the farmer, chef and florist, guests will leave with an evening full of wonderful memories, and will take with them a handcrafted bouquet of flowers and a Field to Vase tote full of floral treasures.
