Sunflowers

Revel in summer with a sunflower bouquet.

Summer is in full swing in New Mexico. Albuquerque temperatures are in the 90s and the monsoon rains aren’t quite enough to quench our thirst for cool during the long, hot days. There are a lot of ways to chill out during high temperatures. Crank up the swamp cooler. Turn on the air conditioning. Make some iced tea. Then, browse Peoples Flower Shops’ collection of cool summer gifts online or in-store.

Cool off with Green Plants
Summer is associated with hot colors like red, yellow and orange. Cool off your senses by delving into the world of green plants. We offer many different sizes of plants, whether you’re looking for a small basket of greenery to place on a desk or a large indoor plant that will make a statement. The rounded leaves of the Schefflera plant make for a great accent piece to remind you of cooler days and the abundant green of spring.

You can go green and still have a splash of accent color when you choose a Bromeliad. This tropical plant combines long leaves with a spike of color rising from the center. It’s a long-lasting gift that features both the cool green of fresh foliage and the bright orange-red of summer. Green plants are a lovely way to add to your personal collection of houseplants, but they also make great gifts for budding green thumbs. They are a welcome business gift, bringing liveliness and verdant colors to any office environment.

Flowering Plants from Peoples are Perfect for Budding Green Thumbs

European Garden

Revel in greenery with the European Garden basket.

Some people are born gardeners. Some people have to learn. The New Mexico climate, with long spells of dry weather and copious monsoon rains, can be a challenge for gardeners. One way to exercise your green thumb is with indoor plants. Flowering plants, in particular, are a beautiful way to bring color into a home.

Giving Flowering Plants as Gifts
When deciding between a bouquet or a flowering plant as a gift, consider the person you are sending it to. Is he already a gardener? Does she already have houseplants? Is it someone living in an apartment who misses having space to grow plants? Those are all perfect recipients for a flowering plant. When you give a flowering plant, you’re sharing a gift that will stay around as a reminder of a wonderful occasion.

Even after the first round of blooms are done, many flowering plants will bloom again with plentiful, fresh flowers. It’s a great way to introduce loved ones to gardening or add to an avid indoor gardener’s existing collection. Let the professional florists at Peoples Flowers help you discover the perfect flowering plant for your own home or as a gift for someone special.

Choose a Flowering Plant
Peoples Flowers offers a variety of different plants at our Albuquerque metro area locations and through our nationwide delivery service. For a classy and elegant gift, look to our orchid selection. These exotic flowers are settled into a decorative container and are always visually impressive. An orchid fits into any decor and offers long-lasting blooms.

Emphasize the greenery with the combination of blooming and foliage plants in our European Garden arrangement, a delightful antidote to hot days in the high desert areas of New Mexico. A mum plant is another great choice for a summery gift. Bright yellow flowers bring a sense of cheer and sunshine. Know someone with a gourmet streak? Look to People’s Food and Plant Basket for a fun combination of edibles paired with a small potted plant. It’s the best of both worlds delivered together in a woven basket.

A Mum plant is a cheery gift.

Caring for Flowering Plants
Flowering plants from Peoples Flowers make for welcome, low-maintenance house guests. Here are a few tips for keeping your new plant happy. Remove old blooms or leaves. A pair of scissors or pinching with your fingers will keep the plant looking clean and attractive. You can set the plant in a saucer for watering or simply place it in the sink, soak it and allow the excess to run off.

Many flowering plants will be happy with indirect sunlight. A windowsill or table near a window may be the perfect location. With a little care, flowering plants will often deliver new rounds of blooms to brighten your room. Certain plants like particular conditions such as moist soil or warm temperatures. The best gauge is to simply keep an eye on your plant. If it’s happy and healthy, it will show it and reward you with a new round of color.

Get Colorful
White is the traditional color for weddings, but many modern weddings step outside that palette and into an exuberant array of other colors. Is red your favorite color? Play with bringing shades of red together and consider unusual wedding flowers like daisies or carnations for their bright exuberance. Pink is a very trendy color to consider. Think about coordinating your flower choices with the color of your wedding gown or with the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Creative Containers
Add some flair to your arrangements with creative vases. If you enjoy the thrill of the hunt, browse thrift stores and garage sales for unusual, antique or colorful containers that can double as vases, whether for large arrangements or for holding bouquets on tables at the reception. Look for old blue glass bottles, painted pitchers or vintage champagne glasses. Mix and match and be playful!

Flowers in Unusual Places
Flowers bring a special flair and beauty to any setting. Arrange roses around the cake on the table. Hang orb-shaped arrangements from the ceiling for an ethereal fairy-tale look. Flowers can be strung together and suspended in doorways or on walls. Decorate for an outdoor wedding with garlands of your favorite flowers, hung from trees or poles. Continue the floral theme with edible flowers as garnish for salads.

Find the Fabulous Blooms of Summer at Peoples Flower Shops

Summer Sherbert bouquet

Summer Sherbert

We’re settling into the long, warm days of summer. The spring blooms have faded, only to be replaced by a rich palette of summer flowers. Bright sunflowers, colorful daisies and abundant roses are three of the most iconic summer flowers. You can find all of them at Peoples Flowers Shops.

Sunflowers Shine
Summer is synonymous with the gracefully nodding heads of exuberant sunflowers. While they are often yellow, sunflowers also come in vibrant shades of orange and red. The fiery blooms echo the look and feel of the summer sun.

Did you know that the sunflower head is actually made up of lots of tiny flowers? These little flowers are what become sunflower seeds. Sunflowers are also the flower associated with 3rd wedding anniversaries. Surprise your spouse with an anniversary bouquet like Summer Sunflowers, an abundance of sunny blooms gathered together in a clear vase.

Daring Daisies
Daisies are the jewels of summer. They bring a dash of enthusiasm and color to any bouquet. Daisies are also full of meaning. When you give a gift of daisies, you are also sharing a message of loyal love, purity, faith and cheer. Daisies are incredibly versatile and work for all sorts of occasions, whether it’s bringing a bit of color into your home or celebrating a special day. Gerbera daisies are real favorites. These striking flowers can be found in shades of orange, red, pink, yellow and white.

Peoples Flowers’ Summer Garden bouquet captures the brilliance of these flowers with a lavish arrangement of Gerbera daisies with sunflower accents. You can see why we call it a “Snapshot of Summer!”

Make Memorial Day Even More Meaningful With Ideas from Peoples Flowers

Patriotic Salute bouquetMemorial Day is on Monday, May 28th. It’s a federal holiday and many people mark the occasion with a day off of work. But Memorial Day is much more than a day off. It’s a day for honoring the men and women of the armed forces who gave their lives for their country.

History of Memorial Day
Memorial Day was first unofficially observed in 1865, after the Civil War. It was originally known as Decoration Day, so named because it was a day when people would visit cemeteries to decorate the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers. Memorial Day was nationally-recognized in 1868 with a memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. Recognition of the day spread throughout the country. In 1971, the last Sunday in May was designated as a three-day federal Memorial Day holiday.

4 Special Ways to Observe Memorial Day
Memorial Day is often about spending time with family, grilling outside and enjoying the late spring weather, but also take time to recognize the sacrifice so many members of the armed forces have made throughout the history of our country.

Blessed HeartDecorate a Loved One’s Grave
Think back to the original observance of Memorial Day and the decoration of graves. You may have a family member or ancestor who was in the armed forces. Memorial Day is a time to recognize his or her service. Decorate that person’s grave site with flowers to express your remembrance and appreciation. Consider a Serenity Wreath or Patriotic Salute bouquet, or stop by any Peoples Flowers location for a custom arrangement.

Visit a National Cemetery
National cemeteries have special events to mark Memorial Day. For example, Santa Fe National Cemetery decorates the graves with flags just prior to Memorial Day. Fresh cut flowers may be placed on the graves. Potted plants are allowed during the 10-day period before and after Memorial Day. Typically, a special ceremony is conducted in the morning. Make plans to be in attendance. New Mexico is also home to the Fort Bayard National Cemetery in Fort Bayard.

Serenity Wreath

Attend a Memorial Day Event
Albuquerque plays host to a wide variety of Memorial Day activities. The New Mexico Philharmonic performs at the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo on May 26. This makes for a great family activity. Pack a picnic and sit on the expansive lawn. The New Mexico Veterans Memorial on Louisiana usually hosts a observance ceremony on Memorial Day. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park in Angel Fire is presenting a morning Flag March and Memorial Day Ceremony with special speakers and music from the 44th Army Band.

Volunteer for a Community Group
There are many ways to show your appreciation for our fallen soldiers. One meaningful way to give back is to volunteer for a charity or veterans’ organization. Consider volunteering at a veterans’ cemetery to help with maintenance or give tours. Check into volunteer opportunities at your local VA hospital. Support a group that supports our current soldiers, such as the Wounded Warrior Project, Homes for Our Troops and Operation Homefront. If you don’t have the time to volunteer, then think about making a donation to help these worthy organizations continue their important work. By giving back, you will never forget the true meaning behind Memorial Day.

Celebrate Administrative Professionals’ Day in Albuquerque with Recognition and Flowers

Dendrobium Delight

A sophisticated orchid arrangement is a stand-out way to say "thank you" to an administrative professional.

When somebody makes your life easier, you say “Thank you.” When someone makes your business life easier, day in and day out, we call them an “administrative professional.” These hard workers have their own day for being recognized. This year, it is on April 25. That gives you some time to think about how to say “thank you” to the administrative professionals in your life.

History of Administrative Professionals’ Day

April 25, 2012 marks the 60th year of celebrating Administrative Professionals’ Day. When it was started in 1952, it was called “National Secretaries Week.” Ceremonies were held in Washington D.C. to kick off the celebration. One of the original purposes of the week was to address a shortage of skilled office workers that was happening at the time.

As years passed, the name evolved to truly reflect the wide range of job duties held by administrative specialists. The administrative professional title can cover a wide range of jobs, including executive assistants, office coordinators, office managers, receptionists and administrative assistants. These are the people who keep a business running smoothly. These are jobs that require a good eye for detail, strong management skills and the ability to meet deadlines. Administrative professionals are often working behind the scenes of a business. That’s why we have a dedicated day to celebrate their contributions.

Celebrate a special day

The International Association of Administrative Professionals has suggestions for honoring administrative professionals. Ideas include offering tuition reimbursement for college classes, supporting professional organizations, and providing registration for conferences or continuing education workshops.

The entire last week of April is dedicated to honoring administrative professionals, but that Wednesday is particularly special. One of the most visible ways to show your appreciation for an administrative professional is with flowers. Peoples Flowers has a special collection of bouquets and gift baskets designed especially for recognizing the contributions of administrative professionals.

Find the perfect flowers

Blooming Basket

A living plant arrangement lasts for a long time.

Think about the administrative professional you are honoring. Does he or she garden? Then the Blooming Basket of live plants or the European Garden collection makes a great gift that will continue to flourish for a long time to come. For a fun and contemporary look, check out the Dendrobium Delight. This eye-catcher features exotic orchids in a wire-wrapped cylinder vase that will really stand out on a desk.

Call 800-727-1600 or 505-884-1600 or come into any Peoples Flowers location (we have branches in Nob Hill, Downtown, Northeast Heights and Far North on Montgomery) to pick out a customized arrangement for your administrative professional. Carry it out yourself or have us deliver it as a work day surprise. We cover the entire Albuquerque metro area, including Corrales, Rio Rancho and Bernalillo. We can also arrange for deliveries nationwide.

Administrative Professionals’ Day is a great reminder to take a moment and thank the people who keep your business going every single work day. Perhaps the best gift of all is to remember to say, “Thank you. I appreciate your hard work.” There’s no brighter way to say that than with a bouquet.

How to Shop for Prom Flowers

Prom season is getting into full swing. Young ladies are picking out fancy dresses and young men are choosing their formal wear. Flowers are a classic prom tradition that is still going strong. Flowers let a prom-going couple show off some personal flair, whether it’s a white rose in a boutonniere or a bright corsage on a wrist.

How to shop for prom flowers

There is an art to selecting the perfect flowers for your prom date. Follow these tips to insure prom night is full of smiles.

1. Talk to your prom date. You don’t have to guess which flowers your date likes when you can just ask! Does she love yellow roses? Maybe she’s a fan of carnations. If you ask ahead of time, you’ll be sure to get just the right corsage or bouquet. It’s the details that really make prom night special.

2. Color coordinate. Chances are, you are already color-coordinating your clothes. Guys often wear black and white to give their dates a chance to bring the color. You’ll want a matching corsage and boutonniere that doesn’t clash with a dress choice. If you’re not sure what flowers go best with which colors, just stop by one of Peoples Flowers’ four locations to get some expert advice.

3. Pick a wrist or pin-on corsage. Corsages are popular for prom because they can be worn hands-free throughout the night and across the dance floor. Your date may have a preference when it comes to a wrist or pin-on corsage. Depending on the style of dress she is wearing, a wrist corsage may work better. Find a gallery of corsages and boutonnieres here

4. Bring your date flower shopping. Flowers mean romance. Consider having a fun outing with your prom date to the flower shop. It will give you a chance to browse all the options, choose a custom selection of flowers, and get to know each other a little better.

5. Don’t forget the corsage. There are a million things going through your mind on prom day. You’re busy getting dressed, arranging last-minute transportation details, and thinking ahead to dinner. Use the Peoples Reminder Service to send you a text message a day ahead (or the day of) the prom to go pick up the flowers.

Impress with a bouquet

Corsages and boutonnieres are the way to carry a splash of color and elegance with you throughout the night, but you can really make an impression by bringing along a full bouquet for your date. If you are picking up your date at home, it will be easy to leave the bouquet there. When you date returns, it will be a happy reminder of an amazing night.

Consider a classic dozen roses or shake things up with a artful arrangement like the “Luscious Lavender” bouquet. This brings together an abundance of spring colors with a contemporary look.

When it comes to prom night, flowers never go out of style. Whether you’re going for classic and classy or modern and lively, People Flowers will pair you up with the perfect corsages, boutonnieres and bouquets for your memorable evening. We wish you a safe and happy prom!
