Celebrating Dia de los Muertos with an Enchanting Evening on a Texas Farm!

The Field to Vase Dinner Tour celebrated Dia de los Muertos amongst beautiful fields full of marigolds at Arnosky Family Farms during an enchanting evening under the big sky of Texas Hill Country. Taking place on Saturday, October 15, this dinner was a magical way to connect with the community.

Flower farmers Frank and Pam Arnosky hosted the event and together with Andy Hopper, AIFD, CFD and the team of H-E-B Blooms, brought their passion for American Grown flowers to the table. Word of Mouth Catering from Austin added their own creation to the evening with a menu prepared using a host of local ingredients and the meal was delightfully paired with local wine and beer from Carter Creek Winery & Real Ale Brewing.
