It takes a village, as the saying goes, to put on the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour. And we simply couldn’t do it without our national sponsors who, in the most clever and imaginative ways, add a secret sauce to each tour stop.
These sponsors seamlessly add to the guest experience and make each dinner special. Each of the six stops on the 2018 tour was sold out, a feat made possible by the support of our sponsors.
One of the most popular features of the dinners, the boutonnière bar, is sponsored by Smithers Oasis. Time and time again, guests tell us how much they enjoy designing a bout or corsage to wear throughout the evening.
Ball Horticultural is our reception sponsor, underwriting the food and wine for both our VIP reception and our pre-dinner reception. Ball ensures each dinner is off to a great start!
And Syndicate Sales ensures our tablescapes will amaze and delight by providing the containers our floral designers fill with American Grown Flowers at each stop. The volume and variety of vessels they provide is spectacular.
Helping guests bring home some magic from each event are Visit California, sponsor of our swag bags; and Corona Inc., which provides each guest with a pair of floral clippers so they can design their own American Grown arrangements at home.
The dinner tour is also generously supported by national wholesale flower sponsors Mellano & Company and DV Flora, and is underwritten by Certified American Grown Flowers and the California Cut Flower Commission (CCFC). Needless to say, a floral dinner has to have spectacular flowers and these sponsors ensure that’s the case at every single stop!
Finally, media sponsors Super Floral and Florists’ Review help us share the experience in text and photos all year long! We’re grateful for the coverage and the ability to share the tour experience far and wide.
As we wrap up the 2018 dinner tour and plan for the thrilling stops in 2019, we send our sincere thanks to our national sponsors!
