What's Up With Wreaths

Tags:

Wreaths are so extra. Yeah, they're on our order form, but we are probably going to need to get into this: Where is your wreath going to hang? Colors? Any exposure to the elements? Design? What's the base? Asymmetrical? We might need to go full Queer Eye.

First step: fill out the order form. That, at least, gets us started. Who knows, maybe you're easy and my wreath artisans can weave your perfect ring just from the form submission. If a wreath consult is required, I'm here for you.

Types of Wreaths

Wreaths are usually custom designed. Sometimes we have a few on display at the shop. Of course we go wreath crazy during the holidays. But most of the time, we make a wreath just for you. Things to think about: type of wreath, colors, materials, ribbon, size, where it will hang. Let us know on the form, or we can talk it over.

14" Gold or Silver Hoop ($80)

14" Rustic Grapevine ($65 and up)

Any Size Festive Evergreen Wreath ($125 and up)

Make Your Own Wreath

We have classes or you can drop in to open studio if you know what you are doing (we can help). (Give us a heads up if dropping in so we can have the materials ready)

The Mother of All Gifts

Tags:

Gift certificates are the bomb. You can't go wrong. Plus, at LoCoFlo, it's fast, easy and online all along. This sounds like a song.

How It Works

Fill out our order form. Our website will direct you to PayPal for payment. No worries if you don't have a PayPal account, you can pay with a credit card on their site.

We will email a printable certificate to the sender. The certificate is not needed to make purchases. We have a fancy database with a record of the recipient and amount. The recipient can use the funds for any LoCoFlo product or service. That's it.

Ordering Vase Arrangements

Tags:

It shouldn't be this difficult. Why can't you just pick an assembly-line, cellophaned, saccharine, sticky-sprayed flower abomination out of a police line-up. Maybe add on a mini mylar SpongeBob stick balloon? (Barnacles!) Get it thrown into a van. Click a payment button and be done with it?

Because you and me, we're not like everyone else. We could choose a mass market recipe of foreign grown flowers, but instead we demand something unique, natural, maybe even grand. Our specialty cut flowers are locally grown by our farmer friends, and custom designed by creative artists in our studio. We are flower people.

How It Works

Fill out our order form. We will email a confirmation and invoice to you for online payment. Off it goes!

Pricing is generally $2 per stem. Some varieties are more expensive (like peonies). Our minimum vase order is $40 for a small arrangement. Medium sized are $50-$70. Large go for $80-$100. Boomin' - $100+. (Samples)

Delivery charge ranges from $5-$20 -only to residences. Subscriptions are available for businesses and residences. (No hospitals!) We usually need the order at least one day in advance of the delivery. We get flowers on Monday and Tuesday and deliver Wednesday-Friday. We do other stuff on the weekends. We currently only offer outside drop-off. Our delivery boy will text/email/call the recipient when she leaves the vase.

Our dedication to sustainability and exclusively sourcing local flowers determines how we work. The arrangement is made with the best stuff we have at the time of the design. We don't always know in advance what flowers will be in your arrangement. We do know they will be awesome! We don't use any packaging for our vase deliveries - no plastic, no cardboard. We use cool recycled or re-used (Goodwill!) vases as much as we can.

We know our model isn't for everyone, but you know who you are if it is. Order up Squidward!
