New details emerged this week about our next Field to Vase Dinner at David Beahm's Thistle Dew Farms.  We had a few minutes to chat with David, and he mentioned yodelers (yes, yodelers) and Oysters XO, an innovative raw bar that serves freshly shucked oysters for exclusive events. These are just a few of the treats in store for guests. 
David Beahm is a world-renowned event planner who recently did the floral designs for Michelle Obama's first ladies luncheon, celebrity weddings (think Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas) and for Fortune 500 companies and luxury brands like Rolls Royce.
