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 loved working with Local Color Flowers for the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. I gave my preference on color and some types of flowers and they did an amazing job. The bouquets were so beautiful and I loved the hints of rosemary! Easy to work with and I'm glad that we were able to support the local growers.

After learning about Local Color Flowers before even being engaged, I knew that I wanted them to be a part of my wedding day. My experience with Ellen and the entire LoCoFlo team way surpassed 5 stars. I would recommend them (in a heartbeat) to anyone looking for wedding florals or just a single order! The fact that Ellen is a pioneer behind the local flower movement (and cares so passionately about her business and clients) really attracted me to her business. I was married on Nov 5 after the first frost of the year -- and as Ellen described it, the growers and farmers pulled off a Frostmas miracle and delivered with many flowers on my "wishlist" :) The flowers were absolutely perfect and the LoCoFlo team really made my vision come alive. Ellen was always patient and responded positively to my numerous questions and requests. I'm especially grateful that they took the time to learn how to execute a floral photo booth backdrop that I really wanted.

I am big supporter of local businesses and so, it felt great to support local growers within 100 miles of Baltimore. With all this being said, I am a huge fan of Local Color Flowers and will continue to support this awesome local business.

I have always known that I wanted Local Color Flowers to provide my flowers for our wedding. When receiving or giving flowers, they always do an incredible job in creating the most unique bouquets that truly represents local florists during the seasons. After first speaking with Ellen, she knew exactly how to implement my vision for our fall wedding, including the special details within our bouquets and for our vases. The team was always professional, I had quick response times, and they clearly put a lot of effort in designing the perfect urns and bouquets. The quality of flowers were wonderful (as they always are)! Our bridal party, family, and friends still give compliments on the flowers! I highly recommend this florist for your next big day! Thank you so much again for working with us to make our flowers a focal point in our wedding!

I was a little nervous about what would be blooming in October and whether those blooms would match my color palette and vision, but it felt great to support a local business and local growers while planning our wedding, so we took the risk. It was so worth it!! Working with Ellen and her team was such a pleasure and the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, center pieces, wreaths, and garlands that they designed for our ceremony and reception were breathtaking! Even better than anything I could have imagined! Ellen totally got the look that I was going for - a picked-from-the-garden, romantic and not-too-manicured feel - and made it come to life. When I walked into our reception room and saw the centerpieces she designed and the gorgeous garland over the door behind our seats, it brought tears to my eyes. My family will be ordering arrangements from Ellen for years to come! She's the best!

Ellen was phenomenal from the first visit. I was slightly hesitant to work with a florist who did not do "traditional" bouquets, but that feeling was completely gone after meeting Ellen and seeing the beautiful flowers that she, and the farmers she works with, are able to produce. Four months before our wedding we had to change venues and our color scheme and Ellen was not only accommodating with a second consultation, but made us both feel at ease that the centerpieces and bouquets would look gorgeous. Carling and Eric even followed up several times via email and phone to confirm the order and ensure everything was accurate before the wedding. I cried when I saw my bouquet for the first time and after the wedding many of our guests told us how beautiful the flowers were. Local Color Flowers did an amazing job and I would highly reccommend them to anyone. I know we will be stopping by for flowers on Saturdays in the future. ~ Ashley & Chris

Local Color Flowers was recommended to us by our photographer, who had been very impressed by LoCoFlo at other weddings she photographed. We especially appreciated that their flowers are sourced within 100 miles! They were very communicative and made sure they understood exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. We told them what we were looking for but didn't really know how they would look the day of but they ended up being PERFECT! We used our ceremony aisle hangers as our centerpieces and they were beautiful in both locations. The boutonnieres were so simple yet matched so well with the bouquets. My bridal bouquet had an incredible mix of beautiful flowers, including celosia and succulents, which everyone loved. Thanks Ellen and the LoCoFlo team!

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!

Ellen did an incredible job with the flowers for our wedding, despite having ZERO direction from me (the bride) because I know literally nothing about flowers. When the flowers appeared on our wedding day, somehow they were exactly what I had imagined. She was so patient and fun to work with. We had sort of a "local" theme to our wedding, so Local Color Flowers was a perfect fit for us. Highly recommended!
