One of the divine things about the arrival of spring and the glorious haul of flowers that it provides is that everything smells fresh again. The flowers themselves contribute much to this condition, but not every bloom is created equal when it comes to scent. Some flowers just got luckier than others, like the rose, whose fragrance is the result of some 300 chemicals, only a handful of which give it that recognizable aroma. But every flower to one degree or another has a smell. We at Casas Adobes Flower Shop can attest to this.
They say it’s in like a lion and out like a lamb, but we here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop are enjoying March so far, first and foremost for the wonderful flowers it gives us. We’re filling up our arms with the assorted goodies of the season, and everything looks vibrant and feels fresh. And even if it isn’t quite spring yet officially, our weather here doesn’t hold us back. We can go ahead and pretend it is now.
International Women’s Day is an occasion on which we honor the achievements of women young and old, past and present. And we’re not alone. Over 100 countries worldwide participate, making IWD a massive global effort and a huge opportunity to connect over what we have in common, rather than what divides us. Casas Adobes Flower Shop knows that one of the most popular ways to celebrate the women on this day is to give them flowers (in Italy, they exchange yellow mimosas), and we’ve got just the bouquet for that.
What’s the best way to ensure that you love the flowers you receive as a gift? Pick them out yourself, of course.
Here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we fully support the idea of giving yourself flowers as an important act of self-care. We indulge in pedicures, massages and long lunches out with friends—why not treat ourselves to a bundle of fresh blooms, too?
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.
