The 2019 Color of the Year has been announced and it is called Living Coral. This animated, life-affirming coral hue with golden undertones is an energizing and invigorating color with a softer edge. We will be seeing living coral everywhere we look this year, from the fashion industry to weddings to home decor. One of the easiest ways to include Living Coral in your daily life, according to the design experts at Peoples Flower Shops, is to simply add a beautiful floral arrangement in this shade to every room in your house.

As we begin a New Year, many people often start to think about changes we can make to our lives that will improve our health and happiness. The floral artisans at Peoples Flower Shops truly believe that adding flowers to your daily life will do this in a number of ways. For example,
Flowers boost creativity. Studies show that adding color to your immediate environment will increase creative thought. So, place flowers in your favorite hues wherever you work most creatively.
Flowers freshen the air. By removing toxins and impurities from the air around them, flowers give off oxygen that we need while absorbing impurities we don't need. Find yourself breathing easier and focusing better when you have flowers near you at work.
Flowers reduce stress. By keeping plants and flowers with green leafy accents near you, you'll see a change in your stress and anxiety levels. The color green is known to have a calming effect balancing out any stressful tensions that may arise. Read More about Happy, Healthy New Year
The holidays are usually a time for bright, cheery tidings, festive get togethers and general merry-making. But often, for families of fallen veterans, this season can be filled with sadness and grief. Making new memories and forming new traditions is an important part of moving forward, so we recommend participating in Christmas floral ceremonies like a wreath-laying ceremony that will honor and pay tribute to your family's brave hero. The Wreaths Across America program, started at Arlington National Cemetery, is a fantastic way to create lasting memories that include your loved one in a meaningful tradition. Peoples Flowers have the wreaths you need to create a beautiful display of gratitude and honor. Read More about Christmas Floral Ceremonies

Have you heard about Friendsgiving? If not, allow us to be the first to clue you in. This is where you spend Thanksgiving (or some time around it) hosting a gathering for friends, co-workers, teachers and neighbors who may not all be able to make it to celebrate with their families this holiday. As the host, it's your job to create a convivial atmosphere, but you may not be solely responsible for the dinner. You can frame this as a potluck, or even order in. The point is, you're brought together to celebrate the season of coming together, expressing your good fortune, and taking part in a delicious meal that everyone helped create. And just like a traditional Thanksgiving, flowers are often at the heart of the table. Read More about A Friendly Table For Your Besties This Thanksgiving
