There are many traditions associated with Easter Sunday - from chocolate bunnies (we eat 90 million of them) to Easter egg hunts (the most famous being on the White House lawn) there are time-honored customs to look forward to each year. Flowers are an integral part of Easter as well, with themes of renewal and rebirth being beautifully expressed through the spring blooms in vivid color. No one does Easter floral design better than Peoples Flowers, and on April 16th, you can be sure that the most gorgeous florals in Albuquerque came from our shop.

National Puppy Day was established by animal advocates who saw the need for awareness and education regarding the plight of puppies in the United States. It is estimated that only 1 in 10 puppies born each year will spend their full life in a loving family home. Instead, along with their adult counterparts, over 4 million canines will enter into the shelter system this year - a number that sadly, the system cannot accommodate. Organizers of National Puppy Day strive to inform pet owners of the problem, encourage puppy adoption, and help to significantly decrease the number of unwanted puppies born each year.
Did You Know? If you are an animal lover and would like to help, it is as easy as ordering your bouquets and arrangements from Peoples Flowers. Through our Helping Hands Program, you can choose to make a donation to Animal Humane New Mexico with every online purchase. Read More about Puppy Day Emphasizes Need for Adoption »
