Plan Something Special This Memorial Day

By peoplesflowers on May 14, 2018 in Flowers, Memorial Day. 0 Comments

If you're anything like us here at Peoples Flowers, you spend Memorial Day both honoring the fallen heroes in your life and getting together with the friends and family who are in it now. The spirit is both respectful and celebratory, and the flowers you use to enhance the events you host in your home have to follow suit. Many of us will be coming together in our outdoor spaces, hosting barbecues or eating dinner under the stars. After all, this is the cusp of summer.

The Mother Of All Days

By peoplesflowers on May 7, 2018 in Floral Design, Flowers, Mother's Day. 0 Comments

In honor of Mother's Day, Peoples Flower Shops asked one of our floral designers---who also happens to be a mom---to share her experience and also her expertise when it comes to selecting the perfect flowers for mom this May 13. Name: Heather Henderson-Rivera Child's first name and age: Kyleigh Ann Rivera, 22. How did you get into floral work? My mother, Marietta, moved out to Albuquerque, New Mexico with my father in the mid 1960s. She became employed as a day surgery nurse at a local hospital. As an outlet and a way to artistically express herself when not working as as nurse, she volunteered at a flower shop. I always thought as a kid (and into adulthood) how neat it was of her to go help out at the flower shop and design flowers. To this day, my mother is an incredible artist. Her forte is watercolor painting. While attending college and studying to become a social worker, I followed in my mother's footsteps and volunteered at several flowers shops. Through volunteering, I found my passion! It gets in your blood. Read More about The Mother Of All Days

Think back on your own graduation time and a few key moments are likely to stand out---crossing the stage to retrieve your diploma, celebrating with friends and family afterward, the feeling of complete accomplishment and the excitement of summer, college or a new job on the horizon. Peoples Flower Shops knows this is one of the most momentous occasions in our lives, and the flowers we both give and receive become a part of that memory. In many cases, these are the first flowers our young scholars will receive, which is why getting them right is so important. Read More about A Rainbow Of Flowers For Your Favorite Grad

On April 22, we celebrate Earth Day, a global event that has millions turning their attention toward terra firma and how they can take care of it. Earth Day educates us on our environment, promotes awareness about how to steward it and helps our youngest citizens become excited about taking care of it. It also reminds us to revel in our bountiful natural resources and riches, a thing that we here at Peoples Flower Shops know a little about. Read More about Flowers That Celebrate Earth Day

Become Desktop Aware This Administrative Professionals Day

By peoplesflowers on April 9, 2018 in Administrative Professionals Day, Flowers. 0 Comments

Here at Peoples Flowers, we would never miss the chance to say thank you to our administrative professionals, whose official day falls this year on April 25. And we've got just the way to kick things off, with a little initiative we're calling "Desktop Awareness." After a long winter, we're certain that most work spaces could use a little perking up, if not a downright overhaul. We're shining a light on the sorry states of our desks and demanding more. We're demonstrating how flowers and plants can make a huge difference in our work lives, and we're doing it on behalf of the admins.

Easter Flowers That Bloom From A Basket

By peoplesflowers on March 26, 2018 in Flowers, Spring. 0 Comments

Easter is known just as much for its baskets as it is for what goes in them: a rainbow of dyed eggs after a hunt, chocolate bunnies and yellow Peeps. But Peoples Flower Shops has another idea when it comes to a bright, lively spring basket: filling it with flowers. A basket has long symbolized comfort and plenty, ever since ancient farmers brought their spring seedlings in baskets to be blessed in the hopes of a successful planting season.

Luscious Lilies and Lemons For Spring

Have we mentioned how much we love spring here at Peoples Flowers? If not, allow us to say it again for the people in the back: we love spring, not just for the glorious haul of seasonal flowers it brings us, but because we too share in a sense of renewal and the idea that a new year is finally unfolding. Of course, our flowers go a long way in helping us keep up that spirit. Spring's crop is not only beautiful but fragrant, and fragrance is a crucial part of keeping the mood light and uplifted.

A Flower Design Just For Spring

By peoplesflowers on March 12, 2018 in Flowers, Spring. 0 Comments

There are many things to look forward to this spring but one of our favorites here at Peoples Flowers is, well, the flowers. Shocker, we know. There are so many traditional blooms associated with this time of year, some of them blooming strictly from the garden and others easily fresh cut and put into designs. We love them all---crocus, hyacinth, lilac, tulip---you name it, and if we can get our hands on it, we'll work it into something special to celebrate the season.
