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.
If ever there were a time to decorate with the colors of a New Mexico desert at sunset, the time is now. Halloween designs and spooky decor have happily invaded our homes and yards, where spiderwebs, swaying ghosts and fake cobwebs rule the roost. Even our doorsteps have been revived with bright with mums and pumpkins. We here at Peoples Flower Shops think its the moment to turn our attention to how we’ll decorate indoors. And of course we’ve got the blooms to do it.
Finally we can inject a little whimsy and humor to our floral designs – not to mention a little spookiness here and there too.
We love decorating for the holidays. Fall is perhaps one of the favorite times of the year to add colorful decor to our home – the colors, the warmth, and the fun add so much to the ambiance! Whether you prefer a fall harvest bouquet or are looking for some whimsical Halloween fun, Peoples Flowers has the Halloween decor that will brighten your day.
Bring the spirit of fall into your living room – or send it to a friend! This stunning cube arrangement offers roses and gerbera daisies exhibiting the fiery tones of the autumn sun. These flowers are sure to light up any room. If you prefer to add some traditional Halloween decor, start with our ceramic Jack-o-Lantern. This smiling ambassador of the holiday presents sunflowers and daisies, fall foliage and curly willow -not to mention a few creepy friends to add a little frightful fun. The pumpkin will make a wonderful piece of decor for years to come.
Did You Know? Trick-or-treating as we know if most likely originated in the 1930’s. Communities were looking for alternatives to the mischievous acts that were plaguing them on All Hallow’s Eve. They borrowed from the tradition of “souling”, a custom of poor families of going door to door to ask for food. The original “trick-or-treat” greeting truly was a bribe of sorts – “please give us candy or we will revert to our mischievous ways!”
Halloween means lots of visitors walking up your front walk and onto your front porch. Greet them in beautiful fall style with fall mums from Peoples Flowers. Whether lining the path or adjacent to your front door, these friendly fall blooms in brilliant red, orange and yellow are the quintessential flowers of autumn.
Show the world how much you love the fall season – and all its holidays – with gorgeous Halloween decor and seasonal arrangements from Peoples Flowers. And as we move forward into Thanksgiving in Albuquerque, don’t forget to order your centerpieces and hostess gifts early!
There is no denying that there is a certain nostalgia about Halloween Nearly all of us have fond memories of a favorite costume, of running through neighborhoods with our friends, or carving pumpkins into funny faced jack-o-lanterns. We looked forward most of all, though, to getting home with our bag or basket full of candy – so much candy we could barely carry it. The fact that our neighbors would be so generous simply because we dressed up in a costume was more than too good to be true.
It was magic.
As adults, we can still celebrate Halloween! Whether to decorate the costume party, or simply to set the ambiance in our homes; fall flowers can be used to create beautiful Halloween arrangements. Send them to a colleague, your best friend or bring one into the office – no matter where these decorations go, a little bit of Halloween Magic goes with them. Beautiful mums, lilies and fall accent details are displayed in our jovial pumpkin container, which can be used for many years to come as seasonal décor.
But what about your young at heart friend or loved one- the one who still wishes they could have a basket full of candy on Halloween? Update their memory by replacing it with this gourmet basket full of specialty cookies, chocolate, toffee and more. For the adult who still has a sweet tooth, this make for the perfect adult “trick or treat” basket. Imagine their surprise at receiving this on Halloween!
People’s Flower Shops of Albuquerque is here to provide all the treats you need this Halloween. From candy to jack-o-lanterns, we make celebrating this exciting day cool for us “big kids”. This season, deliver a Halloween gift right to their front door, and enjoy the holiday again.

More about treats than tricks, Halloween offers a great time to exchange gifts – whether that is just a festive fall flower arrangement or a goody basket full of treats. Here are some of the treats we are offering for this Halloween.
Fall Flower Arrangements
We have a wide range of fall flower arrangements that offer the colors of the season and many of those found at Halloween. Many of the fall arrangements feature stunning sunflowers and fall leaves and greenery.
For example, our “Fall Fiesta” has bright sunflowers, spray roses, and seasonal mums that works for Thanksgiving, Halloween or Harvest parties and comes with a keepsake vase.
One of our fun Halloween flower arrangements is offered by Teleflora and it is called the “Spooky Surprise Bouquet.” Full of fall flowers, this arrangement comes in a pumpkin container with a spooky ghost ornament.
A Bounty of Treats
Halloween is really about the sweets and treats, so we have some fun gift baskets full of sweets that you can share at a Halloween party at the office or home. Our “Sweets for the Sweet” gift basket is full of chocolaty goodness, including premium brands like Toblerone chocolate. We also have fun gift baskets full of candies and junk food to enjoy.
Other sweet treats include boxes of fresh baked goods like cookies, cookie bars, and brownies or the elegant Cabarnet Pear Tart.
If you are on a health kick, Halloween treats can even include fresh seasonal fruit baskets that keep that sweet tooth in check and do not wreak havoc on your diet. For example, the Farmers Market Fruit and Cheese Basket is filled to the brim with creamy California cheeses, crisp apples, ripe pears, juicy oranges and organic crackers.
All of our flower arrangements, plants, gifts, and gift baskets are available for same day delivery on Halloween by ordering online, calling any of our Albuquerque locations, or visiting our Albuquerque flower shops.
