People’s Flowers – Poinsettias

poinsettiaDuring the Christmas season, it seems poinsettias are everywhere. From shopping malls to restaurants to Christmas displays, the poinsettia has a special place in our holiday decorating. In its native Mexico, the flower is known as “The Flower of the Holy Night”, and many have associated the shape of this brilliant red plant with the Star of Bethlehem itself.

While poinsettias are not the easiest of houseplants to keep looking beautiful for long periods of time; with a little attention, you’ll be enjoying this seasonal plant into the new year.

  • Find the perfect spot for your poinsettias – indirect sunlight for 6-8 hours a day is optimal. If you must put in a window or hallway with a lot of sunlight, consider a shade or sheer curtain. You definitely will want to avoid anyplace susceptible to cold drafts or warm blasts – so keep away from appliances or heat sources; or the front door if guests are coming and going.
  • Optimal room temperatures are about 70 degrees. Poinsettias don’t do well in cold weather, and should never be in temperatures lower than 50 degrees. Therefore, even though the temptation is to use them to decorate front porches and yards, you may want to bring them in on colder days and at night.
  • The poinsettia needs water when the soil feels dry. However, resist the urge to over-water, and do not allow the roots to sit in standing water. If the flower is in a decorative pot, remove before watering so as to allow the water to drain properly.

Finally, People’s Flowers would like to dispel a popular myth. The poinsettia has been rumored to be not only beautiful, but poisonous; this reputation, however, is unfounded. Although certainly the plants are not meant for human (or pets) to eat, and some may be allergic – the plant has been deemed non-toxic. Quite the opposite, actually; the poinsettia is among houseplants known to remove pollutants from indoor air. So decorate away! The poinsettia is safe, traditionally beautiful and helps air quality. You can purchase poinsettia plants, holiday floral arrangements and Christmas gifts online, or by stopping by People’s Flowers in Albuquerque.

Peoples Holiday Decor

DecktheHalls_socialNow that Thanksgiving is over and you’ve cleaned that mess up, it’s time to start thinking about decorating your home for Christmas. Our team of experienced Peoples Flower Shop floral designers is already working hard on our holiday flower arrangements, centerpieces, and gifts.

 

We think that using fresh foliage and flowers to decorate any space for the holidays is an amazing way to bring some elements of the appealing aspects of an outdoor winter wonderland into a home or office, dorm or bedroom or any other space you choose to decorate. Holiday decor adds so much warmth to an environment, and we love the fresh smells that go with much of the greenery.

 

We decided to highlight some of our arrangements and other items to give you some inspiration when you’re looking for ways to decorate your home for the holiday season.

 

Embrace the Colors of the Holiday Season in Your Decor

 

Our Candy Cane Celebration will brighten any room or area. We love the combination of red and white carnations and how it contrasts so nicely with the texture of the holiday greens. We add pine cones and sprigs of red berries and tuck some festive candy canes in the vase. This delightful arrangement comes together with a velvet ribbon that is wrapped around the vessel.

 

Bring Nature Inside With Our Holiday European Garden Basket

Our Holiday European Garden Basket is a delightful way to transform a small but very ordinary space into an elegant and festive area. We choose a combination of green foliage plants and red and white flowering plants. They’re all carefully nestled in a rustic basket with a bright holiday bow.

 

Add a touch of Rustic Decor and the Smell of Cinnamon

Our Cinnamon Cider Basket With Real Apples is a fun way to add a rustic element to your holiday decorating scheme. We combine fragrant pine boughs, fresh red apples, pine cones, some green leaves and many long cinnamon sticks in a wicker basket with a handle. This is the perfect focal point for a coffee table, a console table, or for a centerpiece on a buffet table during a holiday party you may be hosting.

 

Start the Decorating at Your Front Door

 

We believe that the holiday decorating should always begin at the front door. Our 28” Traditional Fresh Wreath is the perfect way to bring the holiday spirit to your front door. It’s also a beautiful way to bring some of that holiday festivity to your office, to a bedroom or dorm room door, or to the wall of any other room in your home.

 

Don’t put off your holiday decorating. We’re anxious to talk to you and to help you create the most beautiful holiday decor ever with fresh plants, flowers and other accents for your home, office or any other area you choose to decorate.

Peanuts Christmas Mug

Our Peanuts Mug is a delightful gift for anyone, and it couldn’t be more timely with the recent release of the Peanuts Movie. This fun arrangement comes with a keepsake mug with a Snoopy handle. We fill it with red and white flowers, holiday greenery, shiny red ornament balls, and a candy-cane-striped bow as the final decorative accent.

 

Christmas Table Centerpieces

A floral centerpiece is a beautiful focal point of any holiday table. Perhaps you want to add a festive holiday touch to a table where you aren’t dining. Our Christmas Candle Centerpiece is versatile enough to work in many places. Use it as a decorative accent for a fireplace mantle. Use it on a console table behind a sofa. This arrangement is a combination of beautiful velvety red roses, fragrant evergreens, pine cones and other decorative accents and a plaid holiday-inspired ribbon. The focal point is the fat red pillar candle in a hurricane glass.

Add Joy and Wonder with Flowers

 

Floral arrangements are an easy way to add a little seasonal color to your Christmas decorations. Bright red carnations are particularly popular around this time of year. To that end, we’ve created a couple of great arrangements, including the Cinnamon Basket and the Candy Cane Celebration.

 

The Cinnamon Basket features red carnations, berries and pinecones. Cinnamon sticks and winter greens add a touch of fresh scent, and an adorable cardinal completes the festive look. Our Candy Cane Celebration bouquet blends red and white carnations against a backdrop of pine. Berries, pinecones and candy canes add Christmas cheer to this striking bouquet.
