Crazy, Busy, (FUN) Week!

This was a seriously, busy week for LoCoFlo! We started the week with a trip to Silver Spring to meet one of our fave flower growers, Bob Wollam of Wollam Gardens. We picked up close to 600 dahlias from him a wide range of stunning colors.

On Tuesday, we made and donated centerpieces for the Martha’s Place 11th Anniversary Fundraiser. Martha’s Place is an amazing non-profit in West Baltimore providing affordable housing and recovery services for women overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. The work they are doing is changing lives and we are so proud to support them.

I also made a trip down to Fairfax Virginia on Tuesday to see my friend Sebastian become a US citizen. What an inspiring, beautiful day! (and yes…those are red, white and bluish flowers!)


On Thursday, we made centerpieces for a celebration of community farmers hosted by Johns Hopkins Center for A Livable Future as well as for a rehearsal dinner at the Admiral Fell Inn.


On Friday we headed out to Kent Island for a rainy, but joyful wedding. We had to re-purpose many of the flowers inside since much of what we planned for was outside. The Garden House at Kent Manor Inn was filled with sweet smelling flowers and herbs!



On Saturday, we provided flowers for beautiful weddings in Baltimore, DC and Clear Spring, Maryland.


The flowers for today’s wedding at Gramercy Mansion were some of my favorites of the weekend (because in case you didn’t know…i love the color orange!)



Our last delivery of the day…(before football!) was to Apothecary Wellness. If you have not been to this amazing spa, you should definitely check it out-great owners and staff, incredible treatments and…local flowers!



Thanks to the LoCoFlo team for making this week a huge success-Eric, Jen, Carla, Cathy, Jo, Terr and Mimi-you all rock! Thanks too to all of our growers for providing such beautiful flowers!
