Bellevue Floral Co. is a boutique floral design + event styling studio based in Northern California.  We wholeheartedly believe in the power of visual storytelling; flowers breathe life into events and we love transforming spaces through our artistry.   In our studio, we harmonize rooted principles of floristry with a modern day aesthetic.  Our designs are known for their organic movement and out-of-the-ordinary botanicals.  Our style is whimsical and romantic, marrying both contemporary and classic styles. 

what's in a name?

In the hills outlying the southern border of San Francisco, there is a neighborhood iconic for its "ticky tacky" boxes on the hillside. In one such pink box on Bellevue Avenue, owner Christina Yan grew up. Her childhood was always enveloped in nature and the arts, hence it was only fitting to name the business after the street on which these passions were nurtured. Bellevue also translates to "beautiful view" in French - the perfect moniker for a business that brings so much color and beauty into the world of weddings & events.

"Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,

Little boxes on the hillside,

Little boxes all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one 
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same."

Lyrics from "Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds, written in 1962 about the new suburban housing developments 

in Daly City, California.

"Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,

Little boxes on the hillside,

Little boxes all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one 
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same."

Throwback! Christina & her younger brother Edmund on Bellevue Ave, in front of their ticky tacky box.

Hi there!  Have we met before?  I'm Christina - owner + designer of Bellevue Floral Co. 

 

The hardest part about building this website was taking a moment to write a few words about myself... eek!  It's pretty easy to hide behind a bucket of flowers, but at the heart of my business I'm the kind of gal who truly values a meaningful connection with my clients.   I love hearing about your journey as a couple and I love being able to convey your story and personalities through floral design.

Now, a few fun things I thought I'd share about myself!

​1. My favorite color is taupe. 

2. One of my biggest passions outside of floral design is cooking!  If I'm not playing around with flowers, you'll most likely find me at the farmer's market or in the kitchen.

3. I enjoy photography for leisure and many photos you see of my floral design are taken on my own!
