Two dozen Slow Flowers members from Oregon and Washington gathered in late August for a Summer Soiree at Debra Prinzing’s “slow flowers cutting garden” outside Seattle.
The occasion was inspired by a visit from our good friend Kath LaLiberte of Longfield Gardens, a Slow Flowers sponsor.
Held just before a busy three-day holiday weekend, the gathering gave everyone a moment to pause, connect with other floral professionals, reunite as friends and discover new contacts. We enjoyed a delicious menu prepared by Cooking with Mary Weber and snacked on beautiful dahlia cookies baked and decorated by our talented friend Jessica Lutovsky of Must Love Frosting (her designs were inspired by actual dahlia varieties that Longfield Gardens offers!).
Missy Palacol was on hand to capture the festivities on camera to share with you here!
