Not every occasion calls for an exact flower design—sure, we have poinsettias at Christmas, tulips for spring and roses for Valentine’s Day, but at People’s Flower Shops, we know that there are a dozen meaningful flower exchanges that are personal to the people involved for every one of those expected flower exchanges. And sometimes, it’s these that are our favorite. We love to see how people style the transactions unique to them.
Here at Peoples Flower Shops, we’re enjoying everything that February brings, and that’s a lot, considering that it ushers in both Valentine’s Day and is also officially designated “Creative Romance Month.”
How can you be creative in your romance? Well, we’ll leave much of that up to you, but when it comes to planning your flower gifts, you’ll want to simply think outside of the box a bit. Go for flowers that make a sentimental statement, but free yourself from believing they have to be red roses to count.
Valentine’s Day is the time of year people enjoy showing their appreciation for one another by giving tokens of their affection. Flowers are one of the popular gifts individuals expect to receive on this occasion. Peoples Flowers Shops has a huge array of blooms to help you fulfill your requirements for February 14 or any other day you desire to do something special for the love ones in your life.
If you’re sending flowers to someone this Valentine’s Day, there’s a good chance they will be red, red roses. With their deep layers of petals, endlessly appealing scent and rich, crimson color, there’s just nothing like a red rose to symbolize your abiding love and affection. At Peoples Flower Shops, we’ve got you covered, with literally stem upon stem of February 14th’s signature bloom sitting in our workshop just waiting for our designers to work them into showstopping arrangements.
Were you looking to add a color to your decor scheme at home that would feel thoroughly modern and really brighten your winter? Look no further than color expert Pantone’s pick for Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. It’s an intriguing, cosmic, majestic, mysterious shade, and we here at Peoples Flowers are loving it.
Now, don’t get us wrong, adding purple to your life is a bit trickier than it looks. So before you go painting an accent wall, start off slow. A flower design that showcases purple’s unique qualities is just the way to go.
Ever wish there was a holiday intended exclusively for celebrating your best friends? Well we here at Peoples Flowers are here to tell you that now there is. It’s called Galentine’s Day, and while yes, this is a female-centric occasion (sorry fellas), the fact that it exists at all is a win for friendships everywhere.
First proposed in a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope grabbed her gals and took them out to lunch, proclaiming it “only the best day of the year,” Galentine’s Day is meant to be celebrated on February 13th.
Here at Peoples Flowers, we’re always interested in innovative ways to give flowers. One unique concept that ensures your loved ones will always know how much you care is a monthly delivery of fresh, seasonal blooms, delivered to their doorstep without fail, 12 months out of the year.
Here at Peoples Flowers, we’re well aware of the healing powers of flowers and plants. And the science supports us: a 2008 study by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their rooms use less pain medication and have on average lower blood pressure than their flower-less counterparts. Fresh blooms have long been used medicinally, while flower essence has also been reported to have therapeutic value (consider the popularity of lavender as a de-stresser). Flowers and plants oxygenate the air as well, an important feature when you take into account that those who are feeling under the weather are likely bedridden or at least home bound. It’s no surprise that flowers are our go-to when it comes to get well gifts.
We’re taking some design inspo from winter’s snowy landscape and building it into our flower designs, and we at Peoples Flowers don’t mean to brag, but we’re loving the results. There may be a lot of bright blooms available in winter, but we’re turning instead toward that soft palette of whites and neutrals that mimic the natural world (think snowy woods). We invite the feeling of being outside in because, of course, we have fewer chances to be in nature during winter. And there’s nothing like the serene mood you get from winter’s white flowers and range of greens.
Of the many looks unveiled in International Floral Distributors annual trend forecast for floral design, we here at People’s Flowers are focusing this week’s blog on “Incarnation of Earth’s Element.” It may be a mouthful, but the style itself isn’t. With an emphasis on organic minimalism, this earthy trend celebrates nature in unconventional, modern designs.
