Folk Art Flowers
Folk Art Flowers is a Seattle-based floral studio and flower farm devoted to bringing people joy through local, sustainable, and beautiful flowers. We grow our own flowers, and source other flowers locally through family farms in the Pacific Northwest that use sustainable growing practices. Our committment to sustainability means that we only use flowers that are grown in another country or region when specifically requested by a customer. We also recycle vases for our subscription customers, and design without using floal foam, a petroleum product.
This year, we acquired farmland in Carnation, Washington, which will soon be in production for the 2020 season! Our commitment is always to sustainability, which means building soil health naturally, avoiding the use of pesticides through integrated pest management, using only organic products, providing habitat for wildlife and bees, and rotating crops.
Wedding and Event Design Work
Weddings and events are magical because they bring people together to celebrate your unique story. At Folk Art Flowers, we believe that flowers are the artistic medium through which we can tell the most heartfelt stories, and we would love to help tell yours.
Our floral style is typically lush and botanical, so we love using lingering vines, big full blooms, flowering branches, rich foliage, and ethereal, fluttering bits in our work. We also have a growing collection of rental vases, urns, compotes, and architectural elements like chandeliers, archways, and more. And we offer full event design if you need creative help from start to finish, like designing tablescapes, sourcing other rentals, and of course, creating floral designs. We would love to get to know you and schedule a free consultation to talk about your event!
Flower CSA Subscriptions
Flower CSA subscriptions are the perfect way to get beautiful, seasonal arrangements from the farm to your doorstep. (They make great gifts as well!) You choose your subscription based on your preferred arrangement size and schedule. Arrangements will differ from week to week. Each arrangement uses seasonal, farm-fresh blooms and foliage that will look good from any angle. And just like a vegetable CSA, you are supporting local farmers directly through your purchase. We currently deliver subscriptions to Seattle, Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Shoreline. We also do business subscriptions.
Single Bouquets for Special Occasions
A stunning single arrangement is guaranteed to bring joy, no matter the occasion! We use seasonal farm flowers to create something amazing for you or a loved one. We currently deliver arrangements to Seattle, Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Shoreline.
We also offer on-demand workshops to small groups for bachelorette parties, baby showers, or girls’ nights out! We’d love to teach you how to make fun flower creations like flower crowns or seasonal arrangements. Workshops are by request, so e-mail us if you'd like to start the conversation.
Why Folk Art?
We know you have options. What makes us different?
- We are committed to sustainability in everything we do, from growing flowers using organic practices to recycling vases.
- All of our flowers are local, meaning that you are supporting local farmers in your community while also supporting a small, woman-owned business.
- Local flowers are not flown in (not floppy!) and are higher quality because of their freshness and sheer variety: think fragile dahlias, feathery celosia, and springy greens!
- Since we prioritize using local farm flowers, you’ll get to see the seasons change based on what we select for you, and receive varieties you didn’t even know existed.
- We grow (or source from growers) using regenerative agriculture that manages land, water, and fossil fuels sustainably. Our carbon footprint is tiny.
- We might be biased, but we think we create the most beautiful arrangements out there. Take a look at our reviews, website, or social media for the proof!
Mercer Island, WA
I signed my grandmother up for the CSA for a couple of weeks. Carolyn reached out personally to confirm everything and delivered the flowers right to her apartment door. She was super flexible about the delivery and very sweet. The flowers were gorgeous. A really wonderful local business! Fully recommend!
Amazing experience!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Carolyn is a true artist and professional. She was super easy to work with. She was incredibly responsive and her work is impeccable. I am so grateful to you for making the experience of buying flowers from afar easy and manageable. I will be back anytime I need flowers in the Seattle area.
Gorgeous flowers and great service
I was looking for a cheery, unique bouquet to send to a friend recovering from an illness. Carolyn pulled together a beautiful seasonal arrangement quickly. Great communication and value. Highly recommended!
