This past Sunday, some of our Mayesh Portland branch continued a busy, flower filled weekend (following their amazing grand re-opening party, more on that to come!) and attended the Field to Vase dinner at Holland America Flowers in Woodland, WA.
Portland manager Amy Gebhardt described it as a wonderful evening with amazing food as well as drinks, some of which which were provided by one of the few distilleries in the US run by a women, Eastside Distilling in Portland, OR. As with the rest of the dinner tour, American Grown Flowers described the event as having a 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.”

The Carlsbad Mayesh crew had a fantastic evening under the stars and amidst the beautiful ranunculus of the famous Carlsbad flower fields on Wednesday night. Mayesh was one of the sponsors of the Field to Vase event. It was a huge success and completely sold out again this year, with many of our local growers and florists attending the dinner tour. It was a magical evening with cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean, locally prepared food, wine and craft beer from Terra Catering, as well as cheerful, seasonal and locally grown flowers from Flower Duet. We had many guest speakers who gave us a real insight into the culture of the Carlsbad growing region and what it means to be a California farmer. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to feast among the flora and get to know our local florist friends and growers on a more intimate level. Thank you to our hosts and all involved who gave us an unforgettable experience. Please visit American Grown Flowers to get more information on this not to be missed event!
