Crafting Floral Magic Amongst Ranunculus Fields with American Grown Flowers and Foliage

As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming Field to Vase Dinner at the Flower Fields on April 11, 2024, excitement is building for what floral masterpieces will adorn the long table set amongst a rainbow sea of ranunculus. This year’s featured designer is none other than longtime American Grown supporter, Kelly Shore of Petals by the Shore and The Floral Source. Her breathtaking designs have showcased at numerous Field to Vase dinners throughout the years but this is her first time designing at The Flower Fields and we can’t wait to see what see creates!

For Kelly, floral design is about more than just arranging flowers – it’s about storytelling, connection, and celebration. Her favorite events are those that bring people directly to the source, allowing them to see firsthand the beauty and bounty of American Grown farms. It’s this passion for authenticity and connection that drives her work and sets her designs apart. 

At the heart of Kelly’s vision for the Field to Vase Dinners she has designed for is a desire to create unforgettable experiences that resonate with guests long after the evening has ended. Drawing inspiration from the farms themselves, Kelly’s designs reflect the essence of each location, incorporating the finest blooms and foliage to create, along with other components of the dinner, a sensory tapestry that captivates and delights.
