The Award-Winning Field to Vase Dinner Series Announces Dates for 2023!
The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour is a series of intimate, must-attend gatherings that place seasonal, local and sustainable American Grown Flowers and Foliage at the center of the table where locally grown food and beverages are served by a farm-to-table chef. Each artisan-style dinner is held at a breathtaking venue — an American farm that encourages guests to experience the age-old art and science of floral farming.

The 53rd Annual Sylvia Cup Floral Design Competition Wow Whimsically with American Grown Flowers & Foliage
The Sylvia Cup competition highlights designer’s creativity and skill, challenging them with a surprise theme, and a two-hour time limit to bring their artistic visions to reality. The contest, which is the longest running live floral design competition in the country, was held September 7th during the 2022 Society of American Florists convention in Orlando, Florida. The 20 competing designers each received the same flowers and foliage generously provided by Certified American Grown farms and products, tools, and vessels from Smithers Oasis. Individual designer’s creativity and vision is what set each piece apart.
