About Us: Our Team
Why We Do What We Do
Since the days of antiquity, flowers have been used as a symbol of enduring connection for a precious moment in time. They express a sense of community and bring out positive attributes of people. The uncanny ability of blooms to uplift moods and bring happiness and comfort is a scientific fact* across the globe and throughout the ages. We are honored to bring you this gift of nature by using our land as privileged stewards to cultivate these delightful plants.
Our flower farm is a small but colorful patchwork of flower plots located in the scenic Suisun Valley situated just east of Napa. This rustic and bucolic region is rich in native and early American history and produces nationally acclaimed wines from superior vineyards. The back roads are dotted with olive groves that supply award-winning olive oil as well as open fields of seasonal vegetables and fruit.
We offer several varieties of flowers over several seasons with novel colors, textures, and unique beauty. The summer months are kicked off with herb garden starter plants, many of which we grow to maturity and incorporate into our farmer’s market-style flower bunches. We also carry a small collection of houseplants such as succulents, African violets, and maidenhair fern. From time to time colorful bedding plants, flower bulbs and seeds from our stock is available to add to your cutting garden at home.

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.
