Color Marketing Group Color Alert

Color Marketing Group presents "Dark Infinity" from the 2017+ Asia Pacific Forecast.

Just shy of black, Dark Infinity embraces the design world. Its depth seemingly takes you on endless travels of discovery as it caresses the psyche and soul. Established during CMG Asia/Pacific meetings in 2015, as a 2017 emerging color, it envelops everything from fashion to automotive, home to jewelry. 

This rich and luscious 90% black hue creates a tempting color voyage, made the better with tactile materials and special effects. As the name implies, its reach is infinite, taking our eyes, and perhaps our minds, on an expedition that moves ever forward. It is a hue for exploring as there is no fear in the dark, only profound wonder.

Embrace this deep hue suggestive of new things to see and discover. Conclude the year, and prepare yourself for the next, with Dark Infinity, the possibilities are limitless.

2017 Field To Vase Dinner Tour Ends With a Beautiful Sunset 
in Florida

The last stop on the 2017 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour was not only the perfect finale, it was among the tour's most unique destinations.

Over 150 people attended the last American Grown Field to Vase Dinner of 2017 at FernTrust Inc. in Seville, Florida. Photo by Wings of Glory Photography.
After all, how many people can say they've dined on a fern and foliage farm in the middle of the "Fern Capital of the World?" A sold-out crowd did just that Nov. 18 when the Field to Vase Dinner Tour came to FernTrust Inc. in Seville, Florida.

The Grateful Table 
Was An All American Grown Affair

National Floral Tour Meets Up With Food Tour at Grateful Table

America's flower farmers joined with agriculture and tourism industry partners to support a pop-up feast to thank first responders and raise funds for wildfire recovery efforts in Northern California's wine country.  The event, The Grateful Table, was held Tuesday, Nov. 21 in an idyllic vineyard at the Napa-Sonoma County line.

down the long table for Tuesday's event.

With its experience managing the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour, the California Cut Flower Commission was contacted by Visit California, California's official state tourism bureau, to design a beautiful tablescape.  The arrangements were sent home with the first responders who were invited to attend and recognized for their efforts during the benefit dinner.

who were honored during Tuesday's event and presented with flowers 
for their heroic efforts during the deadly wildfires that swept through the region.

David Austin roses

From Kenya, Colombia and Ecuador 

Different sizes, always high quality

The Tambuzi Farm in Kenya is our main supplier of David Austin cut roses, but not all David Austin cut roses come from Kenya. We import from Alexandra farms in Colombia, Rosaprima and Agrirose from Ecuador too. For fine bridal work we suggest you choose Kenya, because the stems are somewhat thinner and the flowers open quicker. Big buds and heavy stems? Choose Colombia or Ecuador.
