THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
Mise en Fleur is a one-of-a-kind creative gathering that merges floral design, education, and community. The retreat is hosted by Christina Yan, Founder & CEO of bespoke wedding floral studio Bellevue Floral Co. and lifestyle goods shop Camino, both based in Napa, California.
Mise en Fleur has now grown from a one-time event in Napa Valley to a destination retreat in stunning cities around the world. This year we will be hosting events in Napa, Santa Barbara, and Lake Como, Italy.
Our retreat is open to florists and floral enthusiasts of all experience levels. Each day is typically centered around a hands-on floral design intensive accompanied by a business course (topics range from opening a brick-and-mortar shop to strategies for social media and content creation).
MEET THE HOST - CHRISTINA
The owner of two distinct floral businesses, Christina has been a mover and shaker in the design industry for several years. Particularly known for her playful floristry style and knack for blending unique colors and textures, Christina's design philosophy is rooted in much more than just traditional floral technique. As a self-taught florist, Christina lends her style to her years prior as an artist of other mediums. From having spent time as a wedding gown designer to creating window displays for Anthropologie, Christina is excited to share with you her unique perspective on how to think outside of the box when designing with flowers and building a successful business.
Born in San Francisco and raised in the Peninsula, Christina now resides in Napa with her dog (and local celebrity!) Tulip aka 'Tuli'. Christina received her education in the areas of Communication, Art Studio, and Tech Entrepreneurship at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She served as the Branding Director of a corporate foodservice contractor prior to starting her own business as a culinary brand consultant and food stylist + photographer.
In 2015, she found herself unexpectedly at the San Francisco Flower Market and came to the epiphany that although food and photography would be lifelong passions, flowers might be her actual calling. By 2016, she set out to educate herself on all things flowers - scouring YouTube for tutorials and developing her own techniques through trial and error. With determination, Christina quickly paved herself a life immersed in blooms. The rest is history!
You may also recognize Christina from the premier season of Full Bloom, a floral competition reality series on HBO Max. Fun fact - she was scouted via Instagram by producers! Social media has always played a large role in the success of her businesses. It is now an area of expertise that Christina frequently teaches about.
