A Late Summer Refresh With White Flowers

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.

Summery, Bee-Friendly Sunflowers

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.

Serve Up Some Summertime Flowers

If there’s something worth celebrating in June, it’s the arrival of summer. There’s no better tribute than a sultry, elegant dinner party that takes its cue from the sophisticated ease of the season.

End Of Spring Flowers That Welcome Summer

Peoples Flower Shops loves spring and summer’s bright, busy blossoms, and given that the two seasons share so many flowers in common, it’s easy to swoon. While it’s true that we may gravitate to more tropical-looking or bolder, more vivid arrangements in the summer—favoring more delicate, softly-hued ones in the spring—there are few flowers that are unique to either season. Rather, it’s like the two seasons got together and decided to dominate the year with the most dazzling flowers possible. Today, we peek ahead into what summer has in store, which just builds upon late spring’s bounty.

Inviting Bees & Butterflies to your Yard

bees & butterflies

There are few things more serene than relaxing in your own yard on a lazy afternoon. A backyard haven of lounge chairs, a beverage of choice, and serenity – sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Make this peaceful day even more idyllic by encouraging butterflies to join you – which is as simple as adding several lovely flowers to your yard deck or patio. Bees & butterflies congregate in gardens that both support the ecosystem and infuse color to your natural space – and Peoples Flowers is here to assist you in cultivating the plants and flowers that will beckon these industrious and beautiful creatures.

Do We Really Want Bees? The honeybee population is in critical decline worldwide, and here in the US, nearly 40$ have disappeared.  Bees are paramount to the ecosystem, especially in food production. Contributing in even a small way to encourage the bees to thrive is important – don’t worry. Experts say that when collecting nectar and pollinating, bees will rarely sting unless harassed.  Continue reading

Floral Arrangements for Summer Tables

No matter where we live, there is just something about summer. Maybe it is lingering memories of summer vacations, maybe it is the longer days that allow us to get together with friends, maybe it is warm evenings under the stars around a campfire. Whatever that undefinable quality is, there is no doubt that summer has a vibe all its own. Sharing meals and memories with friends is a part of this season as well, and whether you are planning a barbecue or an elegant dinner, summer flowers make everything more festive.

It All About the Color: Summer flowers are vivid, bright and bold. Like the summer season itself, this is no time to be timid – choose floral arrangements comprised of vibrant blooms to express all the joy of summer.  Continue reading
