Gaze at the Same Wreaths as the Obamas with White House Wreaths from Dutch Floral Garden


No, you’re not having déjà vu. Yes, we were just raving about Dutch Floral Garden’s fabulous, unique arrangements a week or two ago. But that was pre-Thanksgiving, and this is the official all-out-holiday season. Dutch Floral Garden still has all the gorgeous, seasonal floral bouquets we spoke of before. But—this just in!—Dutch Floral Garden is offering exquisite holiday wreaths this season, and they are on special until December 15th.

But how does one choose a good wreath? Well, Dutch Floral Garden makes it easy. Their supplier for this year’s wreaths is the same one that the White House uses. Classy enough for you? We certainly hope so. The wreaths come in three different varieties—blue juniper, cedar and juniper, and mixed greens with pine cones and faux berries. See why we had to give them a mention?

Dutch Floral Garden is located in Belvedere Square at 515 East Belvedere Ave in Baltimore. For more information, visit www.dutchfloralgarden.com.

Buying Local Blooms in Floral Industry


Courtesy of Bmore Media – Combine an entrepreneurial spirit, a love of floral design, and a passion for the community. Local Color Flowers, a floral design business in Hampden, is the result.

Owner Ellen Frost took these seemingly disparate elements and pieced them together to create a floral business.

Most shops import flowers and ship them thousands of miles in non-biodegradable material. Colombia and Ecuador accounted for 90-98 percent of all roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums sold in the United States last year, according to All America-Phillip’s Flower Shops. By the time they reach the store, “fresh” bouquets are days old.
