Droppin' Flower Knowledge

Tags: Classes, At LoCoFlo

Here's the deal on our classes: It's probably the most fun you will ever have. For reals, taking a LoCoFlo class is a unique experience in our artsy studio led by creative experts where you develop skillz and learn new things.

We offer a variety of classes related to local flowers. They are typically part instruction and part hands-on and you leave the class with your creation. We also offer off-site classes, classes instructed by experts in other fields as well as private classes for groups and individuals.

Photo: BAM Co-Create

Types of Classes

  • Skills Focused – In these classes, the objective is to master floral design concepts, techniques, and proficiencies. Our instruction emphasizes the process. For instance, in our Intro to Floral Design class, we teach the basics of color theory and floral design while building the arrangement. Other skills-focused classes address the use of mechanics such as floral frogs or more complex techniques to make a hand-tied formal bridal bouquet. These classes are a great way to develop your skillset for a floral hobby or maybe even a side hustle or career.
  • Product Focused – It's all about the gram! The goal of these classes is to complete a stunning floral arrangement. These classes feature a particular seasonal focal flower as in our Spotlight classes or we will tackle a particular project like Thanksgiving Centerpiece or Winter Wreath. These classes are fun, informative and leaves you with a satisfying sense of accomplishment.
  • Private – We offer private classes and demonstrations at the shop and on the road. These can be a class we already offer just for your group, or we can customize a class for your needs. Examples of our past private classes: headcrowns for a child’s birthday, neighborhood wreath class, garden club talks regarding sustainability and local sourcing and more, Individual floral tutoring also available. Call or email Ellen (410-262-1494 | ellen@locolo.com).
  • Other classes - We partner with venues and professionals to offer a variety of other interesting classes. These include conducting our flower classes on the farm where the flowers are grown, in neighboring retail shops, even on the water taxi! We also have visiting instructors such as artists and bakers who conduct their classes at our shop.

Credentials

We’re legit. Our instructors are Master Gardeners and flower farmers with decades of professional floral design experience. We have training from respected organizations (FlowerSchool New York, Longwood Gardens) and experts (Jenny Love, Erin Benzakein, Francoise Weeks). We are members of the ASCFG since 2008 and Ellen won their prestigious Allan Armitage Leadership Award in 2016.

What Else

Classes at LoCoFlo are a fun, one-of-a kind experience where you learn new skillz using locally grown flowers and sustainable practices. Classes are for all experience levels unless otherwise specified. Advanced registration is required. One adult admittance per registration. Check the schedule on our Classes and Events page - there's always something new to do and learn.

Flower Club: 2019 Mystery Arrangement Challenge

Tags: At LoCoFlo, Flower Club

Our first ever Flower Club event looks like a keeper. The Mystery Arrangement Challenge was a bit of a risk (really, some LoCoFloers thought this thing was a bust when organizers selected glow sticks and Big Boyz Bail Bond pens as required design elements) but the participants brought their creativity, excitement and good vibes. Add in treats from Bramble Baking and Wight Tea, plus strong support from fans - everyone had a blast.


weathered watering can featuring light-up pizza slices - why not?

Here's how the night went down:

Club members were presented with unconventional compulsory items along with our spectacular selection of seasonal local flowers to build an arrangement in a "Chopped" style challenge. The required categories were: a quirky container, a non-traditional focal flower and a mystery item. After determining the selection order for the compulsory items by drawing numbered clippers (including a white elephant twist for the last pick), designers chose their materials. Over the next hour, participants built arrangements using chartreuse gel balls, pumpkin-on-a-stick, loofah, a mail box, long garlic stalks and worse. Much, much worse.

Surprises from the get-go! Liz, a wily LoCoFlo veteran, selected a shallow pink dog bowl found at the Greenmount Goodwill, white peacock feathers from the Sunday Market, and Chinese Lantern grown at Wollam Garden with the first overall pick. Beth found value at pick thirteen in her selections of a ceramic pumpkin (another Greenmount Goodwill treasure), googly eyes of Michael's, and indian corn from Calvert's Gift Farm (more on Beth's arrangement below). Allison drew the final pick, and per white elephant rules, had a run at a the entire field of design options.

After an hour of design, each participant presented their arrangement. In addition to a monologue of their experience with the challenge and what they created, several participants embellished their design with stories and titles including Megan's glowing "Grandma's Midnight Romance" and Liz's John Waters inspired "Pink Flamingos". Our AP friend, J Kupps, even had an accompanying song for her eggplant exaggerated "Don't Get Got".

Back to Beth. A LoCoFlo bride in 2018, Beth invited Mr. Trash Wheel to her wedding. Mr. Trash Wheel sent his regrets due to his trash gobbling duties down in the harbor. However he was able to look across the water at the Rusty Scupper to see the reception. He was so happy to be asked he also sent a trove of his merch to the newlyweds. Beth's arrangement: Mrs. Flower Wheel is a floral tribute.

And that's the way it was. Another LoCoFlo classic. See all the pictures in our Flickr album and join us next time.

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.

Advice and coaching

Mi Casa Su Casa

Tags: At LoCoFlo

We built the LoCoFlo studio in 2013 to be a place for our team to do floral work. It was pretty simple: design space, interior loading for the van, a walk-in cooler, meeting space, storage, kitchen, bathroom. We styled the space with art and, later, an exterior mural to inspire creativity. We have a perpetual dried flores installation hanging from the rafters. It got muy dope, muy fast.

Before we knew it, the dopeness started to change our business and people wanted to hang out at LoCoFlo. We scheduled our first weekly in-studio event: Sat@LoCoFlo. Then we began offering classes. After that, it was Open Studio every Wednesday. Add in a few annual events: Bloom Battle and Makers Alley, and our clubs: Book and Flower - now there's always something going on at the Flo.

But there's even extra. Our friends started to do cool stuff at the studio: vegan cooking demonstrations from professional chefs, a political campaign kick-off, an instameet, non-profit farm fundraisers, an underground gourmet multi-course dinner y mas.

Join the fiesta! Make LoCoFlo the place for you to do cool cosas:

Rent the Space
The LoCoFlo studio is an inspiring and versatile place for parties, meetings, work, etc.

DIY
Do your own flower design. We have all the tools and inventory. We can even provide expert advice, storage in our cooler and delivery services. Do it right. Do it fun. Do it yourself at LoCoFlo.

Private Classes
Our instructors (mostly Ellen) can customize a private class for your group (at the studio or on the road). Great for team building, jardin clubs, bachelorette/birthday parties, mom friend group. You get me.

Email or call Ellen (ellen@locoflo.com | 410-262-1494). She will hook you up. Te mola a LoCoFlo, Corey Booker.

Flower Club

Tags: At LoCoFlo, Nerdy AF, Flower Club

The first rule of Flower Club is: You MUST talk about Flower Club.

But, before you talk about Flower Club, you have to know all about Flower Club.

Former Bloom Battlers Jen and Meredith were gabbing at Open Studio one Spring Wednesday night. They missed the competition of Bloom Battle and wanted a new challenge.

Meredith: "What if LoCoFlo had a 'Chopped' style competition, where we wouldn't know what the flowers were and we would need to include unusual elements in the design!"
Jen: "Ooh, that would be fun. Or like 'Nailed It', where we would try to arrange a complex floral installation."
Meredith: "Yeah, that would be fun!"
Jen: "Yeah!"
Meredith: "Yeah!

Ellen then put her MBA training to use and recognized the customer need.

Ellen (internal monologue): "I bet I could get this floral shop cookin' with a new LoCoFlo event: Flower Club! It would be a fun floral activity night for our flower MVPs and new friends. Wow, I'm really good."

Ellen workshopped the idea with some other Bloom Battlers, Heather and Liz, and, boom, the ideas kept flowing: floral bingo, large group project, speed dating flower edition, flower trivia night... The possibilities, and flower fun, are endless.

If you love flowers you're already a member of the club. Some meetings will be drop-in, some will require registration. All will be awesome. Look for the schedule on our Classes and Events page, social media and our email.

Join Flower Club. You probably won't get punched in the face.

Sat@LoCoFlo: Your Weekend Routine

Tags: Sat@LoCoFlo, At LoCoFlo

Note: Check our We're Not Going Viral post for updates.

Saturdays at LoCoFlo has become our favorite event. It's the bomb. We get to talk about flowers, show off our weekly local display from the farms and our dope shop, hang out with friends, meet new people, have kid and animal visitors. It's chill. It's different. It's its own thing.

We didn't even plan it. Sat@LoCoFlo grew out of customer demand from the 32nd Street Farmers Market.

When we first moved into our space our entire business was wedding flowers. We were the florist to over 100 weddings a year! The studio was perfect for us: we built a big cooler, we had lots of space to design, storage for everything. We didn't give much thought to the market down the street each Saturday morning.

With our bay doors open, wrapping the wedding bouquets and packing up the van with centerpieces, we started getting market-goers peering in. Then a few questions. Then some people hanging out. Ellen, with her MBA training, recognized the opportunity: we should sell flowers out of the shop.

Genius!

Today, we are doing less than half the wedding work we used to and Saturday mornings are our jam. Now we have dozens of regulars who make visiting LoCoFlo part of their Saturday routine.

What is it?

Sat@LoCoFlo is our weekly flower hang out. Bring your Blacksauce. Build a bouquet. Design an arrangement. Pick up your PickUp. Every Saturday 8:00AM-12:00PM the shop is open to buy local flowers (check updates before dropping in).

How it Works

Just drop in. We're only a half-block from the farmers market. We display all of our flowers. You can pick them out by the stem or we can make a bouquet for you. We also have a design table set up. Chat with our knowledgeable team about the varieties, the farms and design. It's the place to be.

Hope to see you there!

Hey Guys! We Have a Mural Now

Tags: Hilarious, At LoCoFlo

LoCoFlo thought we had something special when Jessica A. Rowe Valmas applied for a design job with us. She was in the Future Harvest Beginner Farmer Training Program with an internship at our long-time trusted partner, Butterbee Farm. She was a graduate of MICA with several aquatic-themed commissions completed. She wore a t-shirt that implied membership in The Society of Excellent Women. It was all very promising.

SBJ was on his way, and we needed a new Stacy, so Jess was in.

Flower design training began. Jess built a wall. Everything was pretty, pretty, pretty good. Then, things got weird. Jess started bringing Uncrustables for lunch. She reenacted her favorite signature professional wrestling moves from the 90's (i.e Scotty Too Hotty and George, The Animal, Steel). She would, on more than one occasion, rap the entire theme song from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Real weird.

But Jess had the art skillz, and we asked her to paint a mural on the outside of the building. We set the requirements: Flowers from our logo - Rudbeckia, Zinnia, Dahlia. Easy peasy.

Nailed it!

It turns out our first impression was right: Jess is special. She has transformed our building and our business. She brings beauty to shop even on the days she isn't working. If we could just get her to eat some real food...

The PickUp 2.0

Tags: Hilarious, Open Studio, At LoCoFlo, Stuff You Can Buy

The LoCoFlo PickUp has been improving flower lovers’ lives for a few years now. PickerUppers signed up in the winter. After great anticipation, the PickUp revved up in April. LoCoFlo cranked out locally grown bouquets of flowers once per month through October for pick up at the shop. Floral joy for all.

So, what about version 2.0? How can the PickUp improve your life even more?

Imagine this: A dark auditorium. Standing room only. Steve Jobs walks across an empty stage in his black mock turtleneck tucked into unbelted jeans with white sneakers (I know, but it’s just not the same with Tim - where was Queer Eye anyway?). Edge of our seats, mystery, nerding-out, etc. what is THE NEXT BIG THING?

Oh yeah the LoCoFlo Seasonal PickUp!

We are now offering the PickUp not just once a year. More than twice a year. Not even only thrice a year. But fource a year - the PickUp every season! You can now PickUp all year. No more waiting through the dreary winter months. No more missing the PickUp during the holidays. Non-Stop PickUp. Lit!

But that’s not all. We totally BK'ed the PickUp. You can have it your way. Choose the dates you want (as long as it’s a Wednesday) (update - now Saturdays!). You can pick up every week during the season, or every other week, or every Wednesday for just one month, or go old school and pick up every third Wednesday (that would be weird, why every third Wednesday? whatever). You get the idea. The options are endless - well not really - but you get to choose your PickUp dates. Sick!

Stick around after your PickUp. Make an arrangement with your PickUp or enhance your bouquet with some extra.

So, there it is. Kinda like when cheese showed up inside the pizza crust, you thought the PickUp couldn’t get any better and BOOM!

Open Studio - Your Wednesday Night Getaway

Tags: Open Studio, At LoCoFlo

Note: Check our We're Not Going Viral post for updates.

“Aren’t you the flower shop that is never open?”

That’s not the response we are hoping for when meeting someone new, but we hear it.

We’re not a retail shop. Most of our work is for events, classes, subscriptions and deliveries. So, we get it.

But, come on, we’re open anytime for orders or appointments. Plus, we’ve got Sat@LoCoFlo where you can get your flower fix every Saturday 8:00AM-12:00PM. Stop over during the 32nd Street Farmers Market (check updates before dropping in).

Still jones'n for more local flowers? We got you. Open Studio is every Wednesday 4:00PM-8:00PM (check updates before dropping in).

What is it?

Open Studio is a self-directed flower design event. It’s super casual. Bring a vase or buy one from us. We have the flowers, the corkscrew, and everything else you need for a magical evening of floral enchantment.

Come solo for some alone time with flowers, or bring friends for a unique social outing. (Please give us a heads up for groups of more than four so we can prep or consider our DIY services.)

How it works

Just drop in. We sell flowers by the stem. You pick them out. Make an arrangement as big as you want. Designers will be available for critique and advice.

Open Studio is a great mid-week get-away. Practice what you learn at our classes, prep for Bloom Battle, make your weekly arrangement, de-stress, so many possibilities. The flowers will change each week so you can make something different every time.

So, yeah, we are not never open. Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights. Totally make sense.

Improve Your Life for Only $210 (plus tax) - The PickUp!

Tags: Open Studio, Hilarious, At LoCoFlo, Stuff You Can Buy

Imagine you could go back in time to make a different choice. Maybe you would make a decision with your heart, instead of your brain - like selecting UMBC for a first round win on your bracket. Maybe you would go against the crowd and keep your online personal data secure by never joining Facebook. Maybe you would act like a normal human and not use a secret home equity loan to get your super-rich buddy out of a bind.

We can’t go back in time. We live with busted brackets, busted data, and busted leaders. But we can imagine a future where today’s decisions make our future selves not busted - decisions for an improved life.

Fast forward to next New Year’s eve. You are totally smashed and get reflective while Auld Lang Syne is hazily sung in the background. You ask yourself: What did I do this past year that was awesome? What decision could have I made that would make me say right now - Sweet Baby James, that was the best thing I did all year and I am better for it!

Let me help you out. The answer is The PickUp. This game-changing, can’t miss, no regret, best thing you will do all year panacea is a monthly subscription of locally grown flowers offered by LoCoFlo. It isn’t even difficult to obtain this sweet elixir. All you need to do is fill out this form and fork over a little scratch, or you can just show up at the shop each third Wednesday of the month April - October. (Update: now seasonal and available year-round - check out our The PickUp 2.0 post.)

Here are some made up quotes overheard at The PickUp last year:

“I’ve lost weight since joining The PickUp - I wasn’t even trying. In fact, I am eating more and exercising less. Plus my hair is thicker and less grey. It’s magic!”

“I’ve been feeling real frisky since my partner signed me up for The PickUp! I’ve been showing how much I appreciate it with some special attention." (I’m pretty sure that means sex.)

"The flowers have a calming affect on my children. They are delightful - the flowers, not the kids. The kids are still monsters, just a little more bearable.”

“After I joined The PickUp, my boss gave me a pat on the back and raise! Thanks LoCoFlo!”

“I’ve traveled the world, met with shamens, gurus, holy people. Nothing could cure my ills - then I found The PickUp.”

“Everything is better! Everything is wonderful!” Then fancy-pants actually started signing “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and twirled out of the shop.

Joining The PickUp makes you the kind of person who says “Hell yes I picked the Retrievers, totally called it”, “no way I’m giving that nerd my info”, and “yeah, you’re on your own with that Stormy chick, bro”.

Join The PickUp. Your future self will thank you.
