Field to Vase American Grown Flowers Newsletter

David Beahm 
 & The Detroit Flower House

It all started with a house: The Flower House.

In October of 2015, The Flower House of Detroit opened its doors for a weekend-long Floral installation, welcoming an estimated 3,000+ visitors to tour an incredible in-house exhibit. The 15-room abandoned Detroit house, bought for $500 by Lisa Waud was no longer a home, but was a floral art exhibit she wanted to share with the community.
Collaborating with a talented team of florists from Michigan and across the country, many walls, ceilings, staircases, furniture, and even toilets were covered in fresh American Grown Flowers and living plants, totaling to about 4,000 flowers.

David Beahm of David Beahm Experiences was one of the select florists who participated in the Flower House project, which garnered national media exposure. David Beahm is a man of many talents who recently started his very own flower farm.  And lucky for us, David Beahm's Thistle Dew Farm in Quakertown, PA is the site of our next Field to Vase Dinner on Wednesday, September 14.

Quick look at one side of the room.
His Flower House design was brilliant, captivating and inspiring. Called "Channeling Mother Nature," his room was a woodland-inspired dining room that sat in the heart of The Flower House. His room included a moss-covered table in the center, above hung a giant tree-stump chandelier with dripping water.
