Field to Vase Dinner in Portland

Have you ever wanted to have dinner at a flower farm? The Field to Vase dinner tour gave many that very opportunity in 10 different cities serving up local flowers and fare. Mayesh was a sponsor for the Carpinteria, Carlsbad, and Portland dinners along with with the upcoming final date in Detroit (complimenting The Flower House installation happening during the same week)!

Amy Gebhardt, our Portland branch manager, attended and said that “it was cool to bring together customers, wholesalers, vendors, growers and end users all at the same table.  Sitting next to someone you do not know and striking up a conversation about how you came to be at the dinner was great.” 

Take a peak at the pictures Amy took at the dinner and stay tuned for a post on the dinner tour finale in Detroit. Tickets for the dinner are unfortunately sold out, but you can still get tickets for The Flower House, which is going to be amazing!

If you're looking for some tips about the biz and want to know more about the awesome lady behind this week's takeover, look no further. Rachael of Siren Floral Co. is pretty darn cool, in my opinion at least, and I have had so much fun working with her for the past few weeks. Hope you all enjoyed her color-inspired takeover as much as we did! If you didn't see it, check it out here. Oh, and check out her IG too (@sirenfloralco) - you won't be disappointed!

If you love Lonely Bouquet as much as we do, then we're sure you'll be interested to be hear about SAF's new campaign, Petal it Forward. A play on the concept "pay it forward," Petal it Forward is basically that, but with, you guessed it, flowers! It shouldn't come as a surprise that studies have shown that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness and a long-term positive effect on moods, which is why this is such a no-brainer. Through this campaign, SAF hopes to show the benefits of flowers and become a resource for consumers through their websites, and

I plan on bringing our readers all things flora and fun, mixed with some serious posts about the flower business. I like to think of myself as pretty well-rounded - having passion for design (flowers, web, decor, etc.), marketing, photography, tech, and business. I'm a huge believer in continual education, so I'm always looking for new ideas and hope to share that journey with you!

Coming from a background in interior design, I'm trying my hand at flowers, and will be spending the next year learning the ins & outs of the business. I will be sharing my experiences as the new kid on the block, hoping to inspire other young, aspiring floral designers like myself. I grew up in the wholesale flower business, but hope to use my education and experience to eventually create a unique and innovative approach to floral design. Follow along for a blend of educational tid-bits, my thoughts & musings on the business, and a peek into my crazy journey into the world of flowers! #alitheflorist
