Trendcast: 2018’s Modern Nature

By peoplesflowers on December 18, 2017 in Flowers. 0 Comments

Of the many looks unveiled in International Floral Distributors annual trend forecast for floral design, we here at People's Flowers are focusing this week's blog on "Incarnation of Earth's Element." It may be a mouthful, but the style itself isn't. With an emphasis on organic minimalism, this earthy trend celebrates nature in unconventional, modern designs.

3 Smart Gifts From Our Holiday Gift Guide

By peoplesflowers on December 9, 2017 in GIft Baskets, Gourmet Food, Plants. 0 Comments

Our Holiday Gift Guide - basically our online version of Santa's workshop - is chock full of everything from bold blooms to winter greens. We've got plants and wreaths and centerpieces; we've even provided our elegant silk flower work, a nod to the luxe textures and fabrics of the season. But we at People's Flower Shops want to highlight something that is just as colorful, abundant and gift-worthy as our floral designs and winter bloomers - and you can eat it, too. We'r'e talking about our collection of holiday gift baskets, and you're going to want to take a look (and a bite) at of them. Read More about 3 Smart Gifts From Our Holiday Gift Guide

Give A Delicious Secret Santa Gift

By peoplesflowers on December 5, 2017 in Christmas Events. 0 Comments

Have you been randomly-assigned a gift recipient at work this year? Are you supposed to keep your identity a secret for the weeks leading up to the office party, when gifts will be distributed and the cloak of anonymity removed? Sounds like you're participating in Secret Santa. This group gift swap is popular in the West, where it goes by many names: Secretos Amigos in Latin America, Julklapp in Scandinavia (where we got the idea from, incidentally). Whatever you call it, the premise is always the same: givers offer their recipients gifts, anonymously. It's that last part that makes the gift exchange so fun, but also a challenge. Peoples Flowers can help. Read More about Give A Delicious Secret Santa Gift

Giving To Our Community Through Flowers

By peoplesflowers on November 24, 2017 in Albuquerque Florist, Community Events, Daffodil Days. 0 Comments

During the holidays, we get swept up in the spirit of giving. But while hitting the stores and returning home with a trunk load of presents to dazzle our family with is fun, we here at Peoples Flower Shops are focused on that other kind of giving - the charitable kind. We do this in a few ways. We offer a floral donation to the Folds of Honor Gala, which benefits the spouses and children of fallen or injured U.S. service-members through educational scholarships. We make another donation to the American Heart Association's Heart Ball, held each year here in Albuquerque. This past March, we sourced about 22,000 daffodils for Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation's Daffodil Days, a massive fundraiser to benefit Hospice.

Roses for Veterans Day

By peoplesflowers on October 27, 2017 in Veterans Day. 0 Comments

Yes, we at Peoples Flower Shops said it. You can send roses for Veterans Day. Hear us out. The venerable occasion we celebrate every November 11 or thereabouts doesn't have a designated flower. And yet, on this day, when we as an Albuquerque community come together to honor our heroes through parades and observances, the accompanying decor is definitely emblematic. We wave flags, we wear uniforms. Why not add an official flower? One that we would all agree is triumphant, dignified and elegant? Read More about Roses for Veterans Day
