DIY - How Hard Can It Be?

Tags: At LoCoFlo

Doing your own flowers should be a fun and creative experience that enhances your event and changes your life for the better. However, without the proper resources, some planning, and a little bit of pro-style help, your DIY floral project could totally blow.

Example: Our new friend, Andrea of The Codex Club, got married just a week before we became besties, and she didn't know about LoCoFlo's DIY services. Let's just say her DIY flower experience wasn't magical.

"There was so much we didn't know. We just thought we would buy some flowers and design the arrangements. It wasn't that easy."

"First, transporting everything was a nightmare. My car still smells from all the dirty flower water that spilled from the buckets."

"We did have a great time designing the arrangements, but that only made our disappointment worse on our wedding day - everything wilted. I loved my wedding. The only thing I would have changed were the flowers."

Oh No! DIY disaster!

Bloom Battler Chris, on the other hand, was on his DIY game. He brought his out-of-town aunts and gran, plus friends, over to the shop a few days before his wedding to make bud vases, centerpieces and accent arrangements. We provided the flowers, some of the vases, the tools and materials, and all of the fun.

"My family was so happy to be part of the floral design. It was a fun activity and a great memory."

"We brought our arrangements to brunch the next day. Gran was still talking about the flowers. She loved it! I'm bringing her back to make our Thanksgiving centerpiece."

LoCoFlo kept all of Chris's arrangements looking fresh in our cooler. We also did the heavy lifting with the large ceremony pieces and handled the deets with bouts and corsages plus delivered everything on the big day.

Yesss! DIY domination!

LoCoFlo's DIY services:

Space to Work
Everybody needs a proper workstation to do their best design. And, do you really want all that mess at your house? Design your flowers in our inspiring floral studio. Bring drinks and snacks. Spread out, chill and have fun.

Flowers
We will facilitate your flower order from our network of local farmers. Have a brief consultation with us about your requirements and flower availability, variety, and colors. The flowers will be ready when you arrive. Easy peasy.

Materials and Tools
We are a full service flower shop with all the materials and tools you need. (As a green florist, we do not use floral foam, but we have alternatives.)

Advice and coaching
We got the skillz. Our designers have years of training and experience. We have provided floral arrangements for thousands of events. You got this - we can help (that sounds familiar).

Storage
Flowers are dying from the moment they are cut. Proper care and storage will extend their life. We will store your floral creations in our walk-in cooler, and care for them until the big day.

Delivery
Arrangements are delicate. We have years of experience safely delivering flower arrangements to weddings and events and a van.

Do it right. Do it fun. Do it yourself.
