About the Tour

The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour invites guests nationwide to dine in the fields of America’s most stunning flower and foliage farms. The dinner tour is a cross-country series of gatherings where seasonal blooms and foliage dazzle on beautifully designed tablescapes dressed by top U.S. floral designers, while gourmet meals are prepared by well-known farm-to-table chefs.

Since launching, the dinners have garnered unprecedented local and national media attention and provided a wildly successful way to showcase the heritage of America’s flower-farming families. In 2017, the tour snagged Floral Management’s Marketer of the Year Award.

Certified American Grown, the organizer of these dinners, is a non-profit trade association who provides a voice for ONLY American farmers. Proceeds from the Field to Vase Dinner Tour contribute to CAG's advocacy and marketing efforts to promote American farms and preserve American floriculture heritage.

Your Experience

Your dinner experience will include a feast for the eyes with boldness of oranges and gold surrounding you in every direction thanks to innovative tablescapes and decore featuring all local flowers designed by a renowned floral designer Andy Hopper, AIFD of HEB Blooms.

Andy is excited to make this Field to Vase Dinner a tactile, immersive experience and looking forward to incorporating unique cultural elements into the event. Since this dinner focuses on the Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, attendees can expect beautiful marigold garlands, festive hand-crafted sugar skulls, golden candelabras, an ofrenda and more. “Day of the Dead is all about reflecting on your loved ones who have passed on,” Andy said. “We hope to bring it full circle and make it a beautiful yet traditional way to have a Day of the Dead dinner party. It’s about bringing a piece of those who have left, with you, and capturing the feeling of family and community.”

You'll also enjoy a multi-course artisan family style meal surrounded by waves of stunning flowers alongside flower aficionados like yourself, while learning about the value of buying and supporting Certified American Grown flowers and foliage farms.

As an accompaniment to the meal and continuing the local focus, there will be refreshing brews from Blaco's own Real Ale Brewing and tantalizing wines from Texas Hill Country's Carter Creek Winery.

The Flowers

Texas Specialty Cut Flowers and Arnosky Family Farm is a haven for the Lone Star State’s seasonal flowers, starting with blue cornflower and Texas wildflowers in the spring, black-eyed Susans in the summer and lilies and poppies to bring a burst of color to winter.

But it’s the fall spectacular marigolds that have earned this farm an important role in the region’s history. As residents honor friends and family who have passed on, marigolds decorate ofrendas (alters), and the petals strewn along pathways guide the spirits of loved ones back to their families

The Flower Farm

Texas Specialty Cut Flowers and Arnosky Family Farm in Blanco, Texas, are nestled in the heart of Texas Hill Country, is the result of Frank and Pamela Arnosky’s moxie driving their dream. They purchased 12 acres of land in 1990, literally carved out their own road, pitched a tent and began clearing the cedar trees to make room for their lovingly tended rows of flora. Today, the farm extends across 20 acres and 22 greenhouses.

The Big Blue Barn is the heart and soul of the farm, where the family holds a market featuring fresh cut flowers and vegetables every day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. With the help of local experts, the Arnoskys raised the barn, including its amazing arched tresses, in only five days. This landmark now stands in the region as a symbol of the power when a community comes together.
