Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of of our family, friends and fans! 2009 was an exciting year for LoCoFlo. We worked on 22 weddings last year as well as a hand full of other great events including Flowermart  and Baltimore’s 1st Annual EcoBall. We met great couples, business owners, chefs and more that are committed to using locally grown flowers in their personal lives and businesses.

Like any small business we had our challenges too. Marina decided to no longer be an owner of Local Color Flowers. It was a hard decision for her-and hard on both of us for a while….but we came out better for it on the other side. Marina will still be sharing her talents with LoCoFlo as a lead designer-so watch out to see what she has in store for 2010. We will also be seeing more of designers Jen Bryant and Carla Ryon this year. Hopefully we’ll also add some new faces to the LoCoFlo team as well.

As 2010 begins, I’m looking forward to a great year! To start, we had a great article come out in Baltimore Bride Magazine about LoCoFlo and about using locally grown flowers for your wedding.

Before weddings begin for the year, LoCoflo will be setting up at their first ever wedding show, the Mid Atlantic Green Wedding Expo on February 21, 2010. I’ll also be doing my first arranging/speaking engagement for the 57th Annual Meeting of the District III Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland in early March.

Then…weddings begin! We have so many fun weddings scheduled with great couples at beautiful locations. We’re also looking forward to building relationships with several local restaurants and businesses to provide weekly flower arrangements for them during the grown season (March-October).

So Happy New Year everyone. Thank you so much for your support this past year and don’t forget to buy local this year!
