Here in Albuquerque, we love our succulents. Not only do we plant them outside in spring, we look for ways to keep them in our lives all year long—and that includes introducing the artificial variety into our spaces. But here at Peoples Flower Shops, we’ve got a fresh way to welcome spring through succulents right in our very homes.
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.
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.
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.
At Peoples Flower Shops, we know how healing flowers and plants can be. We spend our days with them, and we’re knowledgeable about all the studies that point to their benefits. We observe them make people happy day after day, and we don’t mean just the recipient of a flower gift. We see how happy both the giver and the receiver are in a flower exchange, and that, friends, is exactly why you should be giving flowers to yourself.
Not every occasion calls for an exact flower design—sure, we have poinsettias at Christmas, tulips for spring and roses for Valentine’s Day, but at People’s Flower Shops, we know that there are a dozen meaningful flower exchanges that are personal to the people involved for every one of those expected flower exchanges. And sometimes, it’s these that are our favorite. We love to see how people style the transactions unique to them.
Here at Peoples Flower Shops, we’re enjoying everything that February brings, and that’s a lot, considering that it ushers in both Valentine’s Day and is also officially designated “Creative Romance Month.”
How can you be creative in your romance? Well, we’ll leave much of that up to you, but when it comes to planning your flower gifts, you’ll want to simply think outside of the box a bit. Go for flowers that make a sentimental statement, but free yourself from believing they have to be red roses to count.
Valentine’s Day is the time of year people enjoy showing their appreciation for one another by giving tokens of their affection. Flowers are one of the popular gifts individuals expect to receive on this occasion. Peoples Flowers Shops has a huge array of blooms to help you fulfill your requirements for February 14 or any other day you desire to do something special for the love ones in your life.
If you’re sending flowers to someone this Valentine’s Day, there’s a good chance they will be red, red roses. With their deep layers of petals, endlessly appealing scent and rich, crimson color, there’s just nothing like a red rose to symbolize your abiding love and affection. At Peoples Flower Shops, we’ve got you covered, with literally stem upon stem of February 14th’s signature bloom sitting in our workshop just waiting for our designers to work them into showstopping arrangements.
