Romantic florals. Natural designs. Customized for you & yours.
Pleased to meet you!
At Ella Flora, romantic, beautiful floral designs combine with superior customer service. Our team started out in 2012 as La Boutique Nostalgie. Over the years, we’ve honed our style and technique by serving countless pleased clients and studying with nationally renowned florists. Most members of our small but mighty team have worked in the events field for years and all have a creative eye. Ella Flora takes a limited number of clients per weekend so we can ensure that our clients feel as special on their big day as they deserve. All our designs are customized to our clients, making them as authentic and unique as possible.
We’d love to chat more! If you’re interested in a free consultation appointment, email our owner/creative director Brigitta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While weddings and special events are our main focus, we do offer our floral services for corporate functions, showers and other events. Flower deliveries for special occasions and holidays are sometimes available depending on availability/scheduling (Give us a call at 419-308-4559 if you want to order an arrangement Mon-Thurs! If we aren’t available, we have recommendations). Our floral and styling services are also available for photo shoots and marketing purposes.
Where are you located and do you travel?
Ella Flora is a Toledo florist, primarily serving Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. We are available for weddings in the Sandusky area as well as Detroit and Ann Arbor, and south into the Bowling Green area. If you are more than 1.5 hour out from Toledo, we do offer select destination wedding/event services depending on availability and budget. In 2020, we will be accepting a few Cincinnati weddings as well. Email us to chat!
Are you a walk-in store?
Nope and we like it this way! We are studio florists and are available to meet by appointment. What that means is our focus is mostly on weddings, special orders and events. This enables us to better serve our clients and provide them more specialized attention.
Do you only do certain styles?
At Ella Flora, we specialize in romantic, natural and soft styles. We use a variety of beautiful flowers in your wedding palette along with greenery if that’s your tastes. Most importantly, we want your flowers to reflect you and your bride or groom’s personality. All our designs are customized to our clients creating a unique look for your wedding or event. If we aren’t the right fit, we have great recommendations.
How much do you cost?
Price varies based on event size, floral choices and location. Flowers and decor set the tone of your day and are in a LOT of your wedding photos so when possible, we advocate budgeting accordingly. For an average-size full-service ceremony/reception, we typically ask a minimum of $1500 during wedding season, but highly recommend starting at $2000-5000s and going from there for a more full look. (Most wedding advice sites recommend around 10 percent of your total wedding budget.)
Do you offer personal flowers/ceremony-only? Or just full-service ceremony/reception service?
We do locally, starting around $800-$1,000. But when possible, Ella Flora recommends a full-service package that includes both ceremony and reception. This cuts back on stress for you and your family (which we are all about doing!), and guarantees your day looks cohesive.
Do you offer pick-ups?
We do not so we can ensure everything is properly transported, delivered and set up. Also, we want to allow you to enjoy your day — let us worry about the logistics!
When should I book for my wedding flowers?
We recommend six months to a year and a half in advance. Ella Flora limits the number of events we take each weekend and we don’t want to miss working with YOU. (If your wedding is in a popular month, such as June or September, the sooner the better!) A longer window also allows more time to get to know your style. With that said, if you are closer or further from that window, do not hesitate to email and check availability. If we are not free, we will recommend someone.
I’m getting married in Toledo but live out of town. How does that work?
A lot of our clients are out of town so it’s no problem. We can chat on the phone, Facetime, email or whatever is easiest. We will be sure we get to know your tastes either way! Ella Flora along with Your Perfect Day will also offer our services in Cincinnati starting in 2020 as we have an awesome rep there!
What’s the meaning behind Ella Flora?
Ella has different meanings in several cultures— goddess, light, beautiful fairy woman…what’s not to love about those things? It’s also just a really pretty name.
Can we meet to discuss my wedding or event?
Yes! Let’s chat flowers. Email us at email@example.com to set something up at the Perrysburg studio we share with our friends Your Perfect Day.
