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!

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!

These days, we seem to find ourselves wearing masks, washing our hands and using hand sanitizer all day long.

Veterans Day is November 11th, and it's that important day where we stop and pay tribute to the amazing men and women who put themselves at risk to ensure our freedom as a country and as citizens. Our veterans and even those still on active duty in the Marines, Air Force, Navy, Army, and Coast Guard are true American heroes. They selfishly put themselves out there and in danger to keep our country safe. This is a special day to honor those still with us as well as those who have past. Unfortunately, this Veterans Day may not look like those of the past due to the current health concerns. We won't be able to have the parades and public ceremonies this year. However, that doesn't mean we can't show our veterans how much we appreciate them and give them the tribute they deserve this Veterans Day. This may be a call or a letter. You may even be able to stop by and show your tribute in-person. Since there is no parade this year, why not create your own caravan for a drive-by parade?! You can also send a patriotic floral tribute to a beloved veteran in your life. We deliver to homes and care facilities to make it easier for you to show your appreciation. Of course, we can't forget those veterans that we have lost. Our Memphis flower shop also makes standing sprays, floral baskets and vases, and other remembrance floral arrangements in red, white, and blue that you can leave at a graveside or send to the loved ones of a lost veteran. All of our patriotic flower displays come in various sizes and styles. Ask us what flowers we have available at the time of order to further customize your veteran's tribute. Of course, you can also purchase plants and garden arrangements or other types of floral displays to which we can add mini flag accents for Veterans Day celebrations. Custom veterans bouquets, baskets, and wreaths are also available. Place your order today for Veterans Day by phone, in our Memphis flower shop, or through our website. You can pick up your orders here or request contactless delivery throughout the Memphis area, including local cemeteries.
