The San Diego County Farm Bureau hosted their biannual San Diego Grown Dinner at Orfila Winery and Be Wise Ranch on the most perfect fall day - sunny skies, a slight breeze, and mild temps welcomed over 200 guests as they enjoyed savory appetizers, sipped on cider, beer and wine, listened to live mariachi music, sampled tasty olive oil, visited the boutonniere bar and finally settled in for a feast among the veggies!
Once again, we partnered with the Farm Bureau and created protea décor for the event. We flowered the Orfila Winery entrance with wreaths and garlands, decorated the cocktail tables with posies, garnished the bar and buffets with handtied bouquets. In addition, we hosted a boutonniere bar where guests could take a floral accessory of their choice to go or make their own.
Chef Michael Ground of the Patio Group and his talented team prepared a three-course farm-to-table feast with a bounty from the county. Guests enjoyed a selection of fresh, fall fruits and vegetables along with grilled and smoked beef, barbeque chicken, sausage and a host of sweet treats! Each course was paired with fine wines from Rancho Guejito, Edwards and Orfila Vineyards.
Here’s a peek at the menu:
Dinner entertainment not only included a colorful mariachi group, the Farm Bureau ‘conveniently’ arranged the launching of the SpaceX satellite which lit up the night sky like an explosion of fireworks radiating beams of light.
