Music City Hosts Field To Vase Dinner

“The Final American Grown Field to Vase Dinner of 2018 struck a chord with all attendees.”

Guests from across the country descended on Nashville, Tenn., on Oct. 5 to attend the last American Grown Field to Vase Dinner of the 2018 season at Green Door Gourmet.

At every turn, guests experienced Southern hospitality from the team at Green Door Gourmet who thought of everything in an effort to make the evening something guests would never forget.

From the farm tour to the boutonnière bar, the floral cocktails (sponsored by Jack Daniels) to the wine (sponsored by Geyser Peak); the chickens at check-in to the amazing tablescape looking over the beautiful flower fields at Green Door Gourmet, the 2018 tour ended on a wonderful note in Music City.

Floral designer Kelly Perry, of Philosophy Flowers and Team Flower, in Boone, N.C., created a beautiful all-American Grown tablescape with a group of volunteer designers from Team Flower. The Team enjoyed the opportunity to work with the flowers harvested at Green Door Gourmet.

Green Door Gourmet’s owner, Sylvia Ganier, and flower farmer Laura Dison provided guests with a tour of the farm, highlighting their history in vegetable production and their commitment to growing Certified American Grown Flowers in Nashville.

The evening was unusually warm for October, record-breaking, actually, but that didn’t impact the experience of the guests. One guest described the evening’s  experience this way: “Sitting at a table in a field with gorgeous vistas among beautiful flowers, eating delicious local food prepared with flowers and enjoying good wine with new friends made for an evening not soon forgotten. The Field to Vase Dinner allows anyone who loves flowers to immerse themselves in a floral fairyland.” Another guest shared that the dinner was, “… the ultimate flower party. Loved the gorgeous 3 tablescapes, enjoyed meeting others involved in the industry, as well as simple floral fans such as myself. The wildflower bouquet we came home with was a lovely reminder for the next few days to appreciate moments of presence,  awareness and beauty.”

Chefs Deb Paquette and Richard Jones treated everyone to a wonderful menu, with ingredients procured from Green Door and other local farms.

As the sun set over the 2018 season of the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner, guests and volunteers couldn’t help but sense a feeling of gratitude. An appreciation for the meal, the flowers, the designer, the farmer and all the work that goes into hosting a pop-up dinner in the middle of a flower field.
