Need Some Honey?

Tags: Stuff You Can Buy

Our long-time partner, Butterbee Farm, has something new. Not only are we delivering their flowers, you can also add on something sweet of their's to your order:

Butterbee Honey is finally here! Add a little sweetness to your life with local, raw, natural honey from the bees of Butterbee. This honey has a delicate, flowery flavor and is great for adding sweetness to tea, toast, cereals, or anything else your heart desires. Our honey was produced from the nectar flows this past May, June, and early July. Clover served as the main source of nectar and pollen for our bees, resulting in light colored honey. The bees also feasted on our lavender, bachelors buttons, snapdragons, and other field crops. The honey is packaged in a standard 1/2 cup mason jar and weighs 6 oz. We suggest you reuse the jar when you are finished or we would happily accept them back to clean and package more honey. Our label was created by Baltimore's own Lianne Pflug, graduate of MICA and botanical artist.

We Love Subs

Tags: Stuff You Can Buy

Subscriptions are the best way to get and keep local flowers in your life. (Just hit us up to get started or make an order and check the subscription box.) Every week we deliver arrangements and buckets to offices, restaurants, stores, and residences. Marie Kondo has never seen such joy.

We can be totally flexible on subs: every week (florist recommends), bi-weekly, monthly. We even had bi-monthly sub. Whatever you want. Make it open ended (florist recommends), or set an end date. Pay upfront, get billed per delivery, or set up a recurring charge (florist recommends). (Delivery availability based on location and day of week.)

Flower delivery subscription as a gift - what could be better? It is probably the perfect present: easy for the sender (set it and forget it) plus the recipient thinks of you every time they see the arrangement and when the new one arrives! Perfect for the WFH employee to let them know their employer is thinking of them - always thinking of them.

Join the party! Send us an email (ellen@locoflo.com) or give us a call (410-262-1494) to set up a subscription. You need this (florist recommends).

What's Up With Wreaths

Tags: Stuff You Can Buy

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: Stuff You Can Buy

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. Select the amount for the certificate after submitting the form. (Yeah, it's two pages.) Our website will then direct you to PayPal for payment. (It's two more pages on PayPal, can you even?) 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 recipient. 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. (No more pages.)

Ordering Vase Arrangements

Tags: Stuff You Can Buy

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 dahlias and 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 is available for individual vase arrangements to residences. Subscriptions are also available for businesses. Delivery fees range from $5-$15 depending on distance. We usually need the order at least one day in advance of the delivery. We currently only offer outside drop-off. Our delivery boy will text/email/call the recipient when she leaves the vase.

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 floral artists in our studio. We are flower people.

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!
