the experience

Join Christina & her team in the beautiful enclave of Montecito in Santa Barbara, California for 1-4 days of floral education, inspiration, and rejuvenation. The workshop will take place in charming cottages all located on the same property where you'll get o unwind while learning directly with Christina, who will also be staying onsite.

Each day of the workshop will cover a range of business topics in addition to hands-on floral design work. You'll master Christina's technique for designing light and bouncy bouquets using chicken wire and the group will also participate in a large scale floral installation - all of which will be photographed beautifully for you to use in your portfolio.

Christina's business classes go over starting a business from A to Z. She'll go over revenue streams, how to price your work, and how to streamline your business operations. Additionally, she will go over a deep-dive on social media marketing - sharing her best kept secrets and personal analytics with you. No questions are off the table with Christina and this aspect of the retreat is especially inspiring and insightful.

In addition to the above, we have beautifully styled dinners planned along with mindfulness activities and plenty of free time for you to unwind and get to know your new floral family.

We can't wait to host you in Southern California!
