We are committed to responsible use of resources, supporting the local economy and promoting neighboring farms. We provide our clients an environmentally and socially conscience alternative when purchasing flowers.

Local Color Flowers seeks to create and support a sustainable community; where people choose local products and services; where flower farms and farm families are thriving; where there is a diverse, strong local economy; and where people are connected to the living world around them.

About the Founder

Ellen Frost

My first experience working within local agriculture was a weekend job working at a Maryland farm and at Baltimore farmer’s markets several years ago. I soon became a Baltimore Master Gardener and moved from a farm stand to the plant clinic table at the markets. I loved teaching people about flowers and how to grow them in the city.

Spending time with market customers, I saw the great demand for fresh, local produce and the overwhelming support of local farmers. I recognized another opportunity to connect local farmers with customers by providing the additional value of floral design services. When I read Amy Stewart’s book, Flower Confidential, I was inspired to combine everything I learned on the farm and at the markets with my entrepreneurial spirit and open Local Color Flowers.

Ellen and her team at Local Color Flowers did a fantastic job with the flowers for our wedding. One of the most intriguing qualities of LCF is that all the flowers are sourced locally and therefore all of the floral arrangements are made with flowers that are in season. We gave LCF a loose idea of what we wanted for the centerpieces and all the other arrangements we had made (our colors were gray and yellow and we wanted alternating High/Low centerpieces) and we were blown away with what the team created.

The only specific request I had was to include a pink flower in my bridal bouquet in remembrance of my husband's grandmother. What they provided was an amazing yellow and while bouquet with the prettiest pink flower that complimented the entire look. LFC is professional, talented and they will work with your budget to provide you with stunning floral arrangements on your wedding day.

We did run into some minor issues with the corsage glue not keeping some flowers on the corsage band and the Irish lace wrap for my bouquet not being wrapped around it but overall we were very happy with the services provided my LCF. We definitely recommend them!

I knew Local Color Flowers would have amazing arrangements, but I was blown away by how perfect they were for our wedding. We didn't give too much direction given that we hadn't chosen specific colors for the wedding. Our wedding took place at the Corradetti Glassblowing Studio which has lovely multi-colored glass pieces and we wanted the flowers to be springy, wildflower look that went with that multi-colored decor. The only specification we had was no traditional/formal flowers such as roses. Luckily Irene, who we worked with, used to work at Corradetti and knew the space well. What we got was an amazing array of pastel-colored spring flowers and succulents. They are truly artists at Locoflo! And to top it all of they're sustainable. I also had them arrange a hair comb of flowers and they went so beautifully with everything. Was the perfect pop of color, my hairdresser became giddy putting the flowers in my hair.

I should also mention that we gave them vintage coffee cans and medicine bottles to make the table arrangements and the way the flower colors went with the cans was so cool.

You know you're putting your money in the right place when you work with Locoflo! They do amazing work, with local flower growers and you know you'll have the most beautiful outcome. This has inspired me to have more everyday bouquets around the house, so I will definitely be going back to Locoflo for those!

Top 3 best vendors I had for our special day. They works tirelessly to make sure our vision was shown in all the floral details and within our budget. We had multiple bouquets, bouts and a huge lush garland to hang on an archway- all done BEAUTIFULLY for a great price.

Ellen and the team are absolutely amazing and I wouldn't have changed my flowers for my wedding at all. So thankful to have met the team!

Ellen is fantastic! Our flowers were absolutely gorgeous - we received so many compliments on our bouquets and centerpieces. I loved that she had free reign to select whatever was local and seasonally fresh and she created exactly what I envisioned. The pictures were stunning!

Also, the flowers (being so freshly cut) lasted all day. Only the groomsmen boutonnieres started to wilt by the very end of the night, but everything lasted all day (which is rare - and I have experienced in other weddings where the flowers start to die before the ceremony is even finished). We were able to send the centerpiece displays home with aunts and grandmothers since they were still so beautiful!

I am a gardener and value the effort put into making a beautiful plant grow. I also know how hard it is to make a living off the land. Local Color Flowers was the only floral designer I visited because their commitment to local flower farmers was so clear. To understand the Local Color Flowers style, I followed them on Facebook and Instagram. When I arrived at the super cool studio, Ellen, the owner, immediately put me at ease. We discussed the general "feel" of our wedding and the color scheme. She made a few notes and that was it. The day of the wedding the flowers blew me away. The flowers were so fresh, brilliantly colored and smelled amazing! The arrangements were top-notch quality. The bouquets were full of flowers I recognized but also really unique flowers that I didn't even know could grow in the Mid-Atlantic! Ellen and her team LOVE what they do and they work hard to make sure that each bride has the most breathtaking flowers - all grown with love by your local farmer. If you are going to spend money on wedding flowers, then I strongly recommend working with the fabulous Local Color Flower team and their crew of local growers. You won't be disappointed.

Choosing Local Color Flowers was one of my easiest and best choices when wedding planning! I was recommended by a friend of mine who had recently been married in Baltimore, and loved the concept of choosing local, seasonal flowers. Carling did an amazing job of listening to my fiancé and I and translating our ideas into a detailed written proposal, and Ellen and team came through for our wedding with the MOST beautiful flowers I have ever seen at a wedding (although I may be biased). In addition, Ellen was extremely communicative and helpful in the days leading up to the wedding, and very flexible with managing inputs from multiple family members. I would highly recommend Local Color Flowers!

I absolutely LOVED my bouquet from Local Color Flowers - I thought Ellen captured what we had discussed and my style perfectly. Ellen was super easy to work with - we had one consultation, I shared a pinterest board I created with her, and then she took it from there! Everyone was very impressed with the flowers and my girls and I all enjoyed them in vases in our houses for days after the wedding! The boutonnieres also turned out great. Sometimes it was a little slow getting responses from the shop, but I know they are super busy and they always got back to me eventually :) I highly recommend Local Color Flowers' unique approach to wedding flowers!

OBSESSED with Ellen and her team at Local Color Flowers! My mom and I fell in love after our meeting with Ellen back in December. (I mean, what other florists actually hand pick where your flowers are coming from?!) Not only is her shop in Waverly super cool, but Ellen just gets it! I wanted a very organic and natural feel for my navy and coral "preppy elegant" September 13 wedding, and I was absolutely blown away by what they came up with! I gave her inspiration photos but also gave her room to be creative. She even suggested wine cork boutonnieres for our groomsmen (my husband sells wine), which were SO cool and unique--everyone loved them! Ellen also provided the flower arrangements for our rehearsal dinner at the Johns Hopkins Club which were equally as gorgeous! She even tucked fragrant basil leaves in them!! YUMM! We highly recommend Ellen and her team at Local Color Flowers!

Ellen and her team at Local Color Flowers are absolutely amazing!! I could not have dreamed of more beautiful flowers for our Wedding. I do not think there was one person at our Wedding who didn't comment on how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you for putting the biggest smile on my face when you climbed out of your truck with my Bridal bouquet. It was STUNNING!! And better than any picture that I had pinned on pinterest. You will not be disappointed with Local Color Flowers!! Book them!
