TV Mom Showdown

pre-start copySome of the greatest TV moms were laid back, others were a bit overbearing, a few taught us lessons with their animated (literally) personalities, and so many of them tried just a little too hard to be cool. Whatever their onscreen personalities were, these TV moms helped raise us while filling our homes with laughter and tears. They gave us a peek into the lives of families we fell in love with and grew with each week. But whoever they were, none could compare to our real life moms.

This Mother’s Day choose from a mix of classic and modern moms to help us decide who the ultimate TV mom is! You just might win the chance to celebrate your real mom with a $100 gift card from Spa FInder!

Always the Perfect Gift

We’ve all been there, that excentral-square-14112684122-1citing moment just before opening the gift you’ve been dreaming about from your spouse, significant other, or good friend. Did they remember all the ideas you gave them? Did they pick up on all of those subtle hints you’ve been dropping for months? Holding back your excitement you unwrap the box slowly and… “Wow, it’s really… um… unique. Thanks…” Do they know you at all?

 

Every year more and more people are a victim of that less-than-perfect holiday gift. Everyone knows what it’s like to open that bizarre gift. This holiday season you have the chance to change all of that and bring thoughtful joy to someone’s holiday with flowers. No more unexcited responses, flowers truly are the perfect gift.

Congratulations to the Martinez Family, the Winners of Our $1,000 Giveaway

SpodeExpress1110323112737We Have A Winner!

Our frequent shoppers at People’s Flowers know just how rewarding it can be to shop at Albuquerque’s premier floral design center, Peoples Flowers. This year was especially rewarding for the Martinez family. They just won $1,000 dollars as the result of a special contest that Peoples Flowers participated in during the Christmas holidays. This year the Conforti Collection created a special national sweepstakes for local florists. The contest was only available to florists who purchased and sold their Spode Holiday Express Train Collection (See Photo).

Our Connection to the Conforti Collection

Arthur Conforti, President of The Conforti Collection, offered florists across the country an opportunity to participate in this years contest.  The Conforti Collection designed this contest specifically to support local florists throughout the country in selling their beautiful hand painted collectible, Spode Holiday Express Train.  A total of 93 flower shops opted to participate in the contest, with Peoples Flowers being the exclusive dealer in Albuquerque of the Spode Train.  The contest was set up to provide a $1,000 cash prize to be given to 5 lucky winners.

The Winners

The Conforti Collection randomly selected five local florists who participated in the program as winners. Then 5 lucky shoppers,  from the winning flower shops were selected to receive the contest awards.

Flower Shop Winners

  • Breen’s Flowers of Houston, Texas
  • Carithers Flowers of Atlanta, Georgia
  • Hoogasian Flowers of San Francisco, California.
  • Norton’s Flowers and Gifts of Ypsilanti, Michigan
  • People’s Flowers of Albuquerque, New Mexico

The Conforti Collection plans to continue the sweepstake opportunities for florists and consumers, offering the contest again next year when they release the third and final train in the collection series.  Peoples Flowers looks forward to future giveaways and bringing even more holiday cheer and excitement to their customers!
