the experience

Join Christina & her team in the beautiful town of Tremezzo in Lake Como, Italy for 4 days of floral education, inspiration, and rejuvenation. With a limited guest count, this unique retreat will feel like a private mentorship program.

 

Whether your goals are to hone in on specific design skills or to build a stronger business foundation, no questions are off the table with Christina. In fact - each student will have a short 1:1 Zoom call with Christina prior to the retreat so that she can get to know you better well before take-off!  From there, she will fine tune her lesson plans specific to the group’s needs. 

 

Beyond the educational component of Mise en Fleur, rest & relaxation are at the forefront of your experience (you will be on workcation after all!). Activities planned include private chef dining experiences, scenic countryside walks, and exploring all the beauty that Lake Como has to offer. Set in the picturesque town of Tremezzo, our villa also includes a private pool, jacuzzi, and sauna for your enjoyment.

 

Lastly, with content creation being an integral aspect of Christina’s success there will be no shortage of media at our retreat! Our photographer will be onsite to capture the entire experience and there will be dedicated time for headshots and portfolio images to capture your design work.

 

Mise en Fleur Italy will be a destination retreat like no other, where your new flower family awaits! We can’t wait to host you in a supportive & inspiring environment and know that you will walk away feeling renewed and more confident in your capabilities than ever!
