The holiday party season may not look like it has in years' past. However, that doesn't mean you can't create a festive atmosphere even if it's just your close family members or a few friends. These small, low-key events can be memorable with the right food, beverages, music, decor, and activities. Here are some ideas for holiday decorating for a Christmas party or New Year's event: Add more festive decor to brighten the event, including fresh evergreen and scented candles to set the scene. You may want to display a few wreaths and garlands throughout the inside and outside of your home. Place twinkling lights inside your home around the ceilings and throughout the garlands for an extra effect. Display festive arts and crafts from the kids throughout the home. Use wrapped boxes as decorations around social spaces for additional visual enhancement. Of course, flowers and plants can play an integral role for creating your holiday party atmosphere: Put a holiday centerpiece on each table in your home -- from the dining and buffet tables to the foyer table and gathering room coffee table. While you can match them across your home, it is also fun to create a theme in each room for more visual interest. Guests can take a centerpiece home as a holiday party gift. Create and display mini flower arrangements as part of each table setting if you plan a formal sit-down holiday event. If you are doing a socially distanced party and using video conferencing to spend time together, it's a fun idea to send some holiday flower arrangements or poinsettias to your virtual guests so their holiday scape can match yours. You can also decided on a shared food and drinks menu to unify your separate physical locations as if you were at the same party. We understand that this holiday season may be one of the most difficult ones ever, but we are grateful to have our family and friends with us even if it is virtual. That will make it even sweeter when we can meet freely again and know that we are all healthy. As you toast the New Year together or virtually, you can also share these special moments and appreciate the more important things in life. From all of us at Pugh's, we thank you for continuing to support us throughout 2020 and wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
The holiday season is in full swing and the biggest gift-giving day of the year is nearly here.

From family and friends to colleagues and clients to neighbors, teachers, and service personnel, there are so many people that deserve our thanks. We are so fortunate to have them all! While we encourage everyone to shop local with small businesses every year here in Memphis, this year is more important than ever to do so. Our local Memphis flower shops and website content locally made items like fresh poundcake, soap, bath bombs, and soy candles.

These items are unique and provide a wonderful standout gift for anyone who receives on or more of the items. We've also put together many holiday gift baskets and packages with locally sourced products. There are many themes and combinations available to offer you something for everyone. For example, our Send a Hug gift set includes a card that provides a socially distanced hug as well as comes with a cactus and soy candle. This is a fun gift for a friend. We also have sweet gift packages that include a cuddly stuffed animal along with a bouquet of flowers or box of candy. Other holiday gift items include chocolates, a poundcake, or even a charcuterie set complete with savory and sweet items and a board to serve it on. Our local small business products can also be combined with a custom flower arrangement, a poinsettia plant, or holiday centerpiece. Just ask us what's available that we can put together for those on your holiday gift list. Of course, our holiday collection is available along with other items like balloons and greeting cards. Many items in our holiday collection are also on sale now for the best value! These products are available for local Memphis delivery only, and we use contactless delivery to keep everyone safe during these challenging times.

Poinsettia Day is coming up later this week on Saturday, December 12th. Every year, it's held on this date, even becoming a nationally recognized special day in 2002 when Congress declared it as one. The day is designed to recognize the beauty and special qualities of the poinsettia as well as to call attention to the symbolism it reflects about the holiday season. In the past, the poinsettia has also been used for many other things, including for its dye properties, especially the ever-popular red poinsettia. However, there are other poinsettia colors, including white. Did you know that there are actually over 100 varieties with many other colors to choose from? It's a versatile perennial that can continue bringing blooms for many years with just a little maintenance and care. Poinsettia plants provide a colorful and festive way to decorate your home for the holidays. Plus, they also make great gifts for others in your life, including friends, family members, neighbors, teachers, colleagues, clients, and service personnel. Our Memphis flower shop offers a convenient place to get fresh poinsettia plants in red or white as well as in single or double stemmed versions. We also have some festive containers for our poinsettia plants, including baskets and holiday ceramic containers. Just order online or by phone and we can use contact delivery to get these Christmas plants to you or your recipients. Beyond decorating and gifting poinsettia plants this Poinsettia Day, you can also do some other fun activities with your family to make the day part of your overall holiday events. This year, it may help to add another day to do special things together after such a tough time. Depending on your location and how much time you have, you might consider visiting a botanical garden or drive-through light display that feature poinsettia plants among the decor. Or, you could get crafty and make some poinsettia-themed items like wall art, Christmas tree ornaments, and more. If you are good with knitting, you could even make a poinsettia-inspired sweater, hat, or scarf. Even the kids could join in. The craft activities could extend to the kitchen where you could whip up some sugar cookies with poinsettia details made from icing. You are only limited by your own imagination! This is the time to spend more time together making things and enjoying these special moments. Many of your crafty creations could also be turned into great gifts or just enhance your overall Christmas decor!
