Well hello! We are Lisa and Ron vanHuuksloot, located in the northeastern corner of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our floral service and tabletop accessories are the product of many passions combined through, well, let's just call it alchemy.
Our floral designs have been curated from several disciplines to create one-of-a-kind artwork. Ron’s amazing photography skills capture the fleeting ephemeral beauty with his artistic eye. In addition to digital contributions, he is a talented manager for all the details of business operations.
Lisa's training with nationally recognized and award winning floral designers has culminated in earning the American Institute of Floral Design's prestigious Certified Floral Designer title. She is currently studying high European style under the mentorship of internationally acclaimed masters of the floral industry, Tomas De Bruyne and Hitomi Gilliam.
While Ron isn’t entirely sold on the idea that flower farming is fun, Lisa has always been a botanist at heart. Many of the foliage and flowers used in our arrangements are grown in Tabletop Alchemist's gardens. Others are purchased from local flower farmers within our network as we strongly believe in keeping small businesses thriving, respecting the flower as a gift of nature and using our land as privileged stewards. Priority is always given to quality local and California grown products for the freshest seasonal designs possible.
