Yes, Halloween has arrived at Peoples Flower Shops, but don’t be scared–our designs are more beautiful than they are bootiful. We’re presenting them in a range of harvest hues and in containers that offer an elegant take on the most macabre of holidays, with ceramic jack-o-lanterns spilling forth a rich bounty of flowers, foliage, curly willow and more of the season’s best floral accents. Take a peek, if you dare.
As we move into autumn, our nation takes time to celebrate one of our richest cultural contributions. Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated from September 15 to October 15 each year, is an opportunity to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. We share dynamic stories from U.S. Latinos that shape our national experience and identity. This celebration preserves the growing Latino presence in our history and culture. At Peoples Flower Shops, we join the festivities by featuring unique designs that include flowers from Latin American countries.
There’s nothing more enticing or engaging than a gorgeous autumn garden. Receiving a beautiful gift of flowers in shades of autumn is a refreshing lift in during this season of change. This season, send your loved ones or special someone a beautiful bouquet of jewel-toned fall colors. Richer and deeper than their harvest-hued counterparts, the jewel-toned bouquets that Peoples Flower Shops have designed are an energetic alternative to the traditional browns and oranges.

When you work in the flower industry, you work in an emotional business. You become involved in the most meaningful moments of your customers lives, big and small.

This September, be sure to add Grandparents Day to your calendar! On the second Sunday of the month, this day is set aside to celebrate all of the grandmothers and grandfathers we cherish so dearly. Spend time together, make or bring them gifts, and shower them with attention. After all, that was the intention behind this National day, started in the 1970s in West Virginia as a way to simply bring family together to enjoy one another. For a special surprise this year, Peoples Flowers suggests that you discover your grandparents favorite flowers (and why) and bring them a special arrangement full of these blooms.
Keeping your home feeling fresh, light and open even in cooler fall and winter months can be challenging. How you decorate can be the difference between a dark, heavy feel and a clean, bright look. Use heavy fabrics in light colors or include open window coverings to bring in light and open up a room. Including all-white flowers to a room with darker elements is a great way to add contrast and bring clean lines and texture to the space. The floral designers at Peoples Flowers have created stunning arrangements that will make you want to include white in every season.
A beautiful garden can be a purposeful use of space that provides food, resources and a home for certain pollinators like bees. Flowers like sunflowers can work hard for your garden and encourage a healthy outdoor environment. Their height can provide much-needed shade for shorter stalks. Bees are enticed by their bright yellow petals. Bringing pollinating bees to your garden is an excellent way to help fight the declining numbers of bees. Peoples Flowers loves sunflowers and has several options for you to include in your summer garden.

We’re lucky here in Albuquerque; our unique climate and ecosystem provide for some pretty stellar examples of flower and plant life. The southwest is rich with flora and fauna, in fact, but then again, so is the rest of the country. Come spring and summer, places all over the nation are celebrating their signature flowers—which are usually at their peak—with festivals and other events, usually tied to their botanic gardens. Visiting a destination’s floral attractions is a great way to engage with local culture. Peoples Flowers has rounded up our favorites (and most of them just happen to be nearby) so you can plan a floral adventure soon.
