We provide our clients an environmentally and socially conscience alternative when purchasing flowers.

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.

Local Color Flowers is AWESOME and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I had my bridal bouquet and two bridesmaid posies made for my wedding on July 18th. I initially met with Carling and we sat down for awhile talking about my theme and vision for the wedding. Then, I e-mailed her pictures of many bouquets that I really liked for inspiration. Local Color Flowers has a ton of pinterest boards to look through for all seasons, so that was incredibly helpful and gave me an idea of the different styles they are capable of doing - which is pretty much anything. I LOVE the fact that all of their flowers are local. We got some DIY Flowers from Butterbee Farms for centerpieces and actually got to go to the farm, and that is one of the farms LoCoFlo uses. So everything kind of came full circle and everyone knows each other, so that was really cool. My bouquet was EXACTLY what I had imagined and absolutely gorgeous. I almost cried having to get rid of it the other day. My photographer said it was the best she has seen this season. I changed my pick up to a delivery a few weeks before the wedding, as well as the kind of wrap I wanted, and I never had to wait long for a response via e-mail and everyone was so flexible and accommodating. I had a great experience and would use them again in a heartbeat as well as recommend them to any bride!!!

The flowers were exactly the 'vibe' Bride and Groom were looking for, with intentional attention to special requests. Worked nicely within a close budget and felt true to the aesthetic of the event. Very nice to be fully locally sourced.

Ellen at LoCoFlo was wonderful! We ordered a bouquet and a boutonniere well in advance of our wedding, and only a week or two beforehand decided to add bulk flowers to our order. She was incredibly accommodating to this last minute addition and everything turned out beautifully. They even sent 2 boutonnieres because at the last minute they received a shipment of calla lilies, which my husband really wanted. So rather than getting rid of the one they had already made us, they sent us both! All around, a wonderful company to work with.

I think people would get nervous at the idea of not knowing what their flowers will look like, but that is what makes Local Color Flowers great. You can fully trust them to pick something perfectly wonderful. I gave some pictures on Pinterest, described the theme we were going for and told them the colors in our wedding party. They ended up coming up with beautiful arrangements based on what I described. The surprise of seeing the flowers was super fun too. The idea of locally grown is awesome so that adds to the value. For all that you get, I would say that it is inexpensive. You really are getting high quality flower arrangements. My only peeve was the communication. It was really difficult to get an email response, which is frustrating when it comes to trying to pay. But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter, because the product delivered was perfect.

We hired Local Color to do all of our flowers for our wedding, including ceremony and reception. The flowers were unbelievably beautiful and fresh. Ellen and her team customized a piece of garland for the ceremony which turned out perfectly! The bouquets and boutonnieres were completely stunning. Honestly we could not have been happier with their services. It was very important for us to have locally sourced flowers and Local Color absolutely delivered.

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!
