Sparkling Summer Wedding Ideas from Peoples Flower Shops

summer flowers

Let the colors of summer inspire your wedding decor.

Many couples choose to get married in the bright, warm summer months. It’s a beautiful time of year and you have a good chance of great weather for outdoor nuptials. Get married by a lake or under the climbing roses of the Albuquerque Botanic Garden. The sun will smile on your wedding and your guests will enjoy the fresh air and beauty of your surroundings. Embrace the fun of the season with summer weddings ideas and tips from Peoples Flowers.

Seasonal Sensations
Summer evokes warm shades of yellow, orange and red. Use these cheerful colors to add spice to your ceremony. They can be reflected in the bridesmaids dresses, decorations, and floral arrangements. The abundant fruits and vegetables of the season can give you inspiration for food and cocktails for the reception.

A summer theme wedding might be your cup of tea. Beach and garden themes are fun and allow you to put your own unique stamp on the celebration. Think outside of the box with a desert theme wedding that embraces cacti and the rich reds and ochres of the New Mexico high desert. Use your imagination and tap into your creativity to personalize a summer wedding theme to fit you and your fiance.

Summer Blooms

Gerbera daisies

Use Gerbera daisies for a fun flair.

The flowers of summer are bright and memorable. These include lilies, roses, sunflowers and Gerbera daisies. Daisies can be either dainty or flashy, making them a versatile choice for any summer wedding. Check out examples of Peoples’ daisy arrangements with a peek at our delicate Dashing Daisies and vibrant Gotcha Gerberas.

You can really bring the feel of summer into your celebration with a collection of sunflowers. These make great centerpieces for tables and add a warm flair to accent arrangements at your wedding venue. Stop by any of our Albuquerque metro area locations to see our spectacular summer blooms in person and find inspiration for your own custom floral decor for your wedding.

Remember the Shade
Many couples choose summer weddings for the opportunity to have their ceremony outside. If you’re getting married in New Mexico, that means you may have to contend with high temperatures and the occasional monsoon rain. Don’t let the fickleness of the weather dissuade you from your dream wedding.

You might want to choose a venue that also offers a shaded or rain-protective place to exchange vows should the weather get fussy. Provide guests with parasols or umbrellas to ward against sun or showers. Have lots of cold liquids available to keep everyone hydrated and happy. Lemonade is a refreshing option.

Plan with Peoples
Peoples Flowers can turn your summer wedding dreams into reality with artful arrangements designed just for you. Our experienced wedding floral designers can work with your color palette, track down hard-to-find flowers and deliver delightful bouquets and decorations to your wedding venue.

Chill Out in the Hot Summer with Cool Gifts from Peoples Flowers

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.

Bucket of Fire

Feel the heat with our spicy Bucket of Fire.

Embrace the Heat
A lot of New Mexicans love the warm weather and hot chiles of the Land of Enchantment. We’ve heard that eating hot foods makes you sweat…and that in turn cools you off. Test that theory with our Summer Heat Bucket of Fire. This silver bucket is full of fiery treats like special hot sauces and crunchy snacks with a spicy kick. Summer time is also grilling time. Bring a wow factor to any backyard barbeque with Peoples’ Maine Tails & Filet Mignon package full of four fresh Maine lobster tails and four filets.

Now that your taste buds are tingling, excite your eyes with an arrangement from our collection of summer flowers. If you’re looking to tailor a gift package or arrangement for a summer birthday or wedding, our design professionals can create the perfect custom package. From delightful sunflowers to the cool, fresh blooms of our Victorian Summer bouquet, Peoples has your every mood and occasion covered.

We invite you to come by any of our Albuquerque area locations in Nob Hill, Downtown, the Northeast Heights and Far North on Montgomery. We have an outstanding selection of summer gifts ranging from yard art to home decor and the freshest seasonal flowers for custom bouquets. No matter what the thermometer says, you’ll be the coolest person around when you give a gift from Peoples.

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!”

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.

Turning Summer Flowers into Art
Our creative design professionals at Peoples Flowers turn summer blooms into artful bouquets. 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. You can choose your own combination by stopping by any of our five shops around Albuquerque. Browse our seasonal stunners and bring summer into your own home or light up the day of someone special. Celebrate this beautiful season by coming by any of our locations, calling us at 800-727-1600 or visiting PeoplesFlowers.com to order your own symbol of summer.
