Extra Special Daffodils Available Friday & Saturday Only

Some very special Daffodils will bring a shower of Spring and hope to Albuquerque home healthcare and hospice patients on March 23rd and March 24th.

Peoples Flower Shops have been a long time sponsor of Presbyterian’s Daffodil Days fundraiser.  This charitable activity raises funds to support Presbyterian Home Healthcare and Hospice patients with financial needs. Wayne Pollack, owner of Peoples Flower Shops, says, “We are honored to be involved in a project that delivers support at an intensely difficult and vulnerable time in patient’s lives.”

Daffodil Days is celebrating its 28th year. Over the next few days 160,000 beautiful daffodils will be sold throughout Albuquerque, New Mexico. 500 volunteers will help with unloading the flowers, unpacking boxes of vases, baby’s breath and greens, preparing the flowers, driving delivery routes and working at sales sites. The daffodils will be arranged into bunches and bouquets – some for early delivery and others destined for sales at over a dozen locations in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

For information on where you can purchase these arrangements please visit http://www.phs.org/PHS/Foundation/Daffodil/Locations/index.htm.  Remember you can shop anytime for daffodils and other luxury arrangements at http://www.peoplesflowersalbuquerque.com/

Delight in the Top 3 Flowers of Spring

Simply Spring bouquet

The Simply Spring bouquet brings colorful joy inside.

Albuquerque is waking up after the long winter. One look outside will show you buds opening, winds rolling down from the mesa, and flower petals just starting to peek out. You don’t have to wait to enjoy the glory of spring. A bouquet from Peoples Flowers will bring an abundance of spring colors to your home or office.

Selecting a spring bouquet
Choosing a spring-themed bouquet is all about celebrating the colors of the season. The vibrant reds, pinks, and purples of Peoples Flowers’ “Simply Spring” arrangement is a great example of a color combination that is unmistakeably seasonal. Even if winter decides to hang on a little longer, this bouquet will brighten your house.

If food is more your speed, check out the “Fresh as Spring!” basket. Oranges and apples join together with Sonoma jack cheese, crackers, and roasted almonds. This is the perfect companion for an afternoon snack on the patio. This also makes a great gift for friends or colleagues with spring birthdays. Celebrate the season in delicious style!

The top flowers of spring
Spring brings with it an abundance of blooms, but certain flowers are the top symbols of the season. Tulips, daisies and daffodils bring a smile to anyone who sees them. They signal the lengthening days and warmer weather arriving in New Mexico. Learn more about the meaning of these iconic flowers and then call or stop by a Peoples Flowers location to order your own special spring arrangement. We are your local Albuquerque florist.

Tulips
Elegant tulips come in a variety of bright colors ranging from white to the deepest of reds. The popularity of tulips can be traced to their cultivation in the Netherlands, where raising tulips is an art form. Different colors of tulips have different meanings. Purple tulips indicate royalty. Yellow tulips are for cheerful thoughts

Show your love with red tulips.

Red tulips symbolize “perfect love.” Peoples Flowers’ “Radiantly Red Tulips” bouquet is a passionate alternative to red roses. It’s a beautiful way to express love in the spring. Pick one up or have it delivered to your sweetheart for a lovely surprise.

Daisies
Daisies are irresistible. These exuberant flowers are associated with innocence and patience. Peoples’
“A Daisy Delight” bouquet brings all the cheer of a meadow full of flowers into your life. A bubble bowl filled with curly willow sets off the sweet spring colors of yellow, pink and white. It’s like bringing little sunflowers into your home without having to wait for summer.

Daffodils
Daffodils are the birth flower of March because these bright bloomers are a sure sign of spring. Yellow daffodils stand for respect. A bouquet of daffodils looks like rays of sunshine that have been captured in flower form. Brighten a loved one’s day with a delivery of daffodils.

Stop by any Peoples Flowers location to design your own bouquet with your choice of spring blooms. We have shops in downtown Albuquerque, Nob Hill, the Northeast Heights, and Far North on Montgomery. If you’re ready to spread the spring cheer, we also deliver to Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Corrales and Bernalillo. Your local florist is just a phone call away at 505-884-1600 or 1-800-727-1600.

Easter Flowers, Bouquets and Gifts are Blooming at Peoples Flowers

Peoples Flowers Easter Tower

The Easter Tower is a delightful edible gift.

Easter marks the real start of spring for many people. Children hunt for Easter eggs and bunnies hop around the yard. The flowering cherry trees, purple iris, and yellow jasmine are just starting to burst forth in Albuquerque and all around New Mexico. Bring those beautiful blooms inside with Easter arrangements and gifts from Peoples Flowers.

Easter flowers
Lilies are one of the most popular Easter flowers for good reason. These graceful blooms are shaped like trumpets and have a delightful scent that beckons you into the warming days ahead. The Easter Lily symbolizes virtue, purity, hope, life and innocence. Lilies are the perfect flower for the season.

The most famous lilies of Easter are pure white and are sometimes called the “white-robed apostles of hope.” Peoples Flowers can create a custom bouquet designed around this popular flower. Choose your own festive colors to accent the refined shape of the Easter Lilies or let the arrangement experts at Peoples Flowers create a one-of-a-kind display.

Peoples Flowers’ “Lilies & Lemons” arrangement offers a stunning twist on the Easter Lily bouquet concept. A clear bubble bowl filled with fresh lemon and lime slices sits beneath a profusion of extravagant yellow lilies with button mums peaking out from between the petals. This arrangement is as bright as the Albuquerque sunshine and really announces the arrival of spring. Place it on the table as a joyous accent for your Easter meal.
