On what occasions do flowers matter more than others? At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we find that it’s the ones that are most personal to you, that don’t necessarily adhere to a holiday or a calendar occasion. These unique moments belong to you and the recipient alone, and these flower occasions reflect the reason and the relationship between you perfectly.
We don’t know about you, but we here at are Casas Adobes Flower Shop feel like there’s a lot going on in February when it comes to the more romantic side of things. We’ve got Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and the entire month itself is officially designated as “Creative Romance Month.” Basically, February is about giving to the ones you love and acknowledging how you feel. But how can you be creative about that in regards to your flower gifts?
Valentine’s Day is one of our busiest times of year here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, and we love it. Our designers are busy putting together one delightful bouquet after the next, snipping roses, trimming branches and working their magic in general on every bloom that comes across their path. The scene here can be hectic, and there’s definitely never a dull moment, but that’s how we like it.
Red roses are the gold standard of Valentine’s Day gifts, and for good reason. Their deep red hue suggests an abiding ardor, a message that no other flower can deliver in the same way. In fact, we reserve red roses for the purpose of expressing our romantic love; imagine sending them to your grandmother, and you’ll understand what we mean. At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we’re stocked up on February 14th’s essential bloom, and you’re going to want to plan ahead to get them.
When color powerhouse Pantone announced their pick for 2018 Color Of The Year, Casas Adobes Flower Shop was thrilled. We love the look of purple, and their specific choice, Ultra Violet, is an intriguing hue. This is a color that’s supposed to embody the spirit of the times and in some way forecast what we might feel like in the future. It’s mysterious, introspective and majestic – three qualities that make it a very complex color. On the other hand, it’s a workable jewel tone, and therefore a shade we can invite right into our homes.
Galentine’s Day is coming up fast, and we here at Casas Adobes Flowers want to help you properly celebrate your friendships. This fun occasion was inspired by a 2010 Parks and Recreation episode where the show’s main character took all of her ladies out for lunch the day before Valentine’s Day to show them how much she cared. She dubbed the day “Galentine’s.” The idea resonated so much that every year, more and more women decide to celebrate their friendships by getting together with their favorite women and girls.

Sure, we’re biased here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, but the research supports us. A 2008 study by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their room are less reliant on pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall. Flowers and plants also oxygenate what’s likely an enclosed room, as well as add a dash of nature to an otherwise indoor affair.
While we here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop love our traditional floral scheme for the holidays, which includes a great deal of green and red, we also appreciate winter’s other palette. Represented by a dizzying variety of blooms, this other color story is inspired by winter’s first snowfall, which takes on an iridescent cast under street lamps and twinkle lights. Lavenders, pale pinks and a range of whites come into sharp focus for winter, with blooms that speak to the delicate, tranquil beauty of outdoors.
