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鈥檚 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鈥檚 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.

wonderful experience!

Working with Ellen at Local Color was a wonderful experience. Having local, ethically-sourced flowers was really important to us. Ellen really helped to shape the vision of our event and the pricing was really reasonable. We were able to rent vases from them which helped make everything go smoothly (one less thing to buy!). Super impressed and would highly recommend them :)

Local Color Flowers is the best!

Ellen was so helpful, responsive, talented, professional, and we really cannot thank her enough for creating the most beautiful flower arrangements for our wedding day in September. We received so many compliments and everything was absolutely perfect. And the fact that the flowers are locally sourced is a huge bonus! We would recommend her to anyone looking for an incredible florist!

The most stunning wedding florals

When I first chatted with Ellen, I had only a vague color scheme in mind (citrusy florals and succulents) and mentioned how much I liked the bouquets and centerpieces she created for the weddings of two of my friends a few years ago. Beyond that, I left the details up to Ellen and her team and knew I鈥檇 be happy without whatever they came up with.

But wow, Local Color Flowers truly knocked it out of the park. My jaw dropped when she walked into my hotel room the morning of my wedding with absolutely stunning bouquets, wrist corsages and boutonni猫res for the wedding party. The variety of flowers she packed into each bouquet and arrangement was astounding, and the colors were even better than I imagined. She took the time to point out some of the flowers in each arrangement and even included a special (and enormous!) pastelegance peony in the center of my bridal bouquet. And if the bouquets weren鈥檛 amazing enough, she also blew us away with a fabulous ceremony arch display, cocktail table bud vases and a mix of floral and centerpieces and succulent and herb planters at the dinner tables.

Ellen and LoCoFlo, thank you for creating such beautiful floral arrangements for our wedding and for helping make our day so special! You can bet we鈥檒l be sending tons of friends getting married in the future your way!
