Our Mission

Local Color Flowers is a Baltimore-based floral design business. We create personalized arrangements and bouquets from fresh, seasonal, and sustainable flowers cultivated by local specialty growers. 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.

Our Vision

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.

I cannot praise the artistry and service of Local Color Flowers enough! They created the most beautiful centerpieces for our daughter's wedding reception last weekend (July 2016) -- each one unique and artistic with the most fresh and local blooms, fruit, and herbs. In addition, the corsages and boutonnieres were each different and our family had such fun picking out which ones we wanted to wear before the reception. The direction we gave Ellen and Irene was the feel of an "upscale cookout" with bright and beautiful blooms and elements of fruit/herbs. The groom is Australian, so they went out of their way to find local blooms that are similar to those grown in Australia. Our guests were raving about how gorgeous the flowers were (and they smelled delicious with all the herbs!) I highly recommended Local Color Flowers if you want beautiful, fresh, unique flowers are your next event. And Irene and Ellen were a joy to work with!

Our wedding flowers looked like they came right out of a dream! I could not have been happier with them! I loved working with Ellen, she is so very talented and helpful in the planning process. If you are open to different types of flowers, Local Color Flowers will make your wedding flowers beautiful! The Local Color team worked so hard putting together our bouquets and a stunning wedding arch full of bright flowers perfect for our summer wedding. I would highly recommend them!

We loved working with Ellen and her team at Local Color Flowers! The fact that she obtains all her flowers from local sources that use sustainable growing methods was very important to us. Why buy flowers that come from China or other distant places when you can get flowers that come from Maryland growers? The flowers were beautiful and the arrangements imaginative and perfectly suited to our theme. Will use them again for other floral needs.

Ellen at LoCoFlo was amazing to work with! She has an open mind when making her beautiful floral creations and really understood how we wanted the flowers to look for our wedding. When I asked Ellen if I could have some brooches placed into my bouquet she didn't hesitate to say yes and even had one of her employees go on the hunt for some very beautiful pieces!

At first we weren’t sure about hiring a florist, or having flowers at all for our wedding, but we quickly realized that DIY alternatives wouldn’t work for us. We ended up finding Local Color Flowers through our caterer’s vendor recommendation page, and we are so thankful that we did! Ellen and Local Color Flowers are awesome; they created the most beautiful centerpieces, garlands, boutonnieres, corsages, and bridal bouquet for our wedding. We had a great initial phone consultation with Ellen, and knew that Local Color Flowers dedication to supporting local flower farmers and using more sustainable practices was a perfect fit for us. Since Local Color Flowers only uses flowers that are seasonal and locally grown, we didn’t actually know what kind of flowers would be a part of our wedding day. We created a Pinterest board to share some ideas regarding style and color-scheme, but other than that, we left it to Ellen and her team to decide which flowers and how best to arrange them. Not knowing exactly what the flowers would look like made for a wonderful surprise on our wedding day. Ellen really captured our “last day of winter” celebration and put together an incredible array of red, maroon, and white flowers in gold vases for the centerpieces, as well as the most stunning bridal bouquet to match my black wedding dress. In addition to the gorgeous flowers, we really appreciated that Ellen helped keep within our budget by suggesting ways to limit delivery costs, and was really flexible about scheduling. We loved working with Local Color Flowers and highly recommend working with them if you’re in the Baltimore/DC area!

SO MANY people commented about how beautiful the flowers were at my wedding (both the bouquets & table arrangements) - they turned out even more amazing than I could envision. I was so happy to use a local company who supports locally grown flowers/farmers. I will absolutely recommend them to anyone I know getting married!

Breath Taking! That are the only two words I can think of to accurately describe the flowers on my wedding day. I love everything about Ellen and Local Color Flowers! I love that by using this vendor you are supporting a local business, run by a husband a wife and supporting local growers. I also loved that they were familiar with my venue, Corradetti Glass Studio and knew exactly how to play off the existing decor. The planning process was a breeze and everything was delivered exactly on time. If you want the most beautiful, in season, flowers in Baltimore make sure that you give Local Color Flowers a call. I promise that you will not be disappointed!!!!

Ellen and team LoCoFlo did an amazing job with my wife and I's wedding flowers. Ellen was able to work with my wife's vision and execute it faithfully on our wedding day. My wife changed up from her vision and color scheme for our flowers a few months before the wedding, and Ellen was able to work with her and accommodate all of her changes. It was great to have all locally farmed flowers, and the arrangements were stunning. My wife received compliments all night during our wedding on how incredible the flowers were. Also, I believe that the costs for the amount of flowers we received, decorations, and delivery/set-up were more than fair.
