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
We love her every day of the year, but on May 14, we have the chance to really show Mom the love and appreciation she deserves. Our Mom is a mentor and counselor, best friend and cheerleader. She made us who we are and continues to love us as she did when we were young. There is just something remarkably special about our Moms, and we love that there is a day set aside to celebrate them.
Peoples Flowers has been privileged to provide floral designs and bouquets for all occasions for over 70 years. Our collection of Mother's Day flowers and gifts has been created to give you a comprehensive selection of products, one of which will be perfect for her.
