The rose is an incredible flower. It has been used both as a symbol of true love and as an emblem during war. Its petals are soft and delicate, yet the rosebush is one of the hardiest plants in the world. Roses are used to express the most intimate of sentiments, yet rosebushes are often used for security and protection. The rose is known as the Queen of flowers for good reason – and this June, during National Rose Month, the experts at Peoples Flowers would like to share some amazing facts about this extraordinary flower.
August is National Romance Month, which means that this hot summer season is the perfect time to celebrate romance! Your significant other is sure to be surprised when they receive a bouquet of classic red roses “just because” – and a gift like that is guaranteed to stoke the fires of romance. From Albuquerque to Rio Rancho and Santa Fe, true romantics are being inspired to deliver the love. And at People’s Flower Shops, we can’t wait to help. After all, celebrating romance is what we do!
While red roses are the traditional expression of affection, you may wish to choose something that more personally represents you relationship. Does your significant other have a favorite flower? Our floral designers can create an abundant bouquet that showers them with that special bloom. Does your husband have a professional office? We may suggest an elegant orchid or tropical anthurium and bamboo arrangement. Whatever you choose, your partner or spouse is sure to understand the depths of your love for them.
Love and affection knows no holiday – so although you may be accustomed to giving these types of gifts only on Valentine’s Day or their birthday, this month gives you the awesome opportunity to celebrate romance in unexpected ways. We love orchids, roses and lilies for romantic floral arrangements, but the choice is up to you. Your love story is unique, and your gift for National Romance Month should be too. So browse the website for inspiration, then call People’s Flower Shops. We’d love to help you conspire to pull off an amazing and romantic gesture that they will remember forever.

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.
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.
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!”
Roses are Radiant
Lucky gardeners get to experience the profusion of colors from summer-blooming roses, but you don’t have to be an accomplished green thumb to enjoy the beauty of this famous flower. Summer weddings and anniversaries are an especially good time to celebrate with roses.
Red roses are classic, but you can also choose from a wide variety of colors when you visit Peoples Flowers Shops. Vivid pinks, yellows and oranges really bring the spice of summer into any arrangement. Roses are stunning as stand-alone flower bouquets, but they also add sparkle to arrangements like Bold Brilliance, a collection of lovely summer colors in flower form.

Go for an elegant look with our Victorian Summer arrangement or find your joy with the sweet combination of seasonal oranges, red, and greens in the Summer Sherbert bouquet.
