The Secret Life Of Bees

Casas Adobes Flower Shop thinks bees are, well, the bees knees. And if you think that expression is strange, think again: bees have legs, and on those legs, little bags where they store the pollen they collect. In fact, bees have adapted in all kinds of ways to become efficient, industrious little workers who are responsible for pollinating the 90 crops we consume most regularly. Every third bite we eat comes from a plant pollinated by a bee. 80% of all flowering plants (yes, all) are pollinated by bees. To say that these little guys are absolutely crucial to life on earth as we know it is no overstatement. So which flowers entice the bees the most?

Giving Plants And Flowers A Home In Your House

There are some flowers and plants that really do better in one part of your house than another. Looking for a great bathroom floral? Choose something like an orchid, which will lend an element of grace but also stand up to the subtropical climate of your shower. What about the dining room table?

The point is, consider where you’ll place those flowers or plants you get from Casas Adobes Flower Shop; it can make a huge difference!

A Gift The Whole Class Will Love

Casas Adobes Flower Shop knows exactly how you can win the Most Likely To Succeed Award this year—give those teachers, admins and other staff at your kid’s school (or yours!) flowers.

Yes, we tend to think of giving flowers to our beloved educators as a matter best left to the end of the year, a kind and fragrant thank you. But we’d argue that it’s best to start off the year giving something green and growing. It not only establishes a positive relationship from the outset, but it brings the outdoors into the classroom or office—and the outdoors is something that everyone from the teacher to the student is probably missing. But that’s not all a floral back-to-school gift can do.

Flowers That Bring Us Together

Everything we do on Independence Day is steeped in ritual and tradition, from the way we celebrate to the food we eat to the decor we put up. We take great pride in expressing our patriotism and our sense of unity with one another on this holiday. Casas Adobes Flower Shop has several floral decor pieces that reflect these values.

Garden-To-Table Elegance

Entertaining in summertime is its own reward. The mood is lighter and freer. The food is fresh, the flowers are blooming, the wine is flowing. This is the time to serve up a bounty of seasonal delights on the table—salmon, ceviche, a perfectly grilled steak, a blueberry pie. The key words for entertaining during this time of the year are fresh, bright and juicy. If you can evoke the garden, you should. A bowl full of a heaping salad laden with fresh veggies makes for the perfect first bite. Given that so many of our flowers are at their peak, you’ll want to have a centerpiece (or two) that is just as inviting and as glorious as the meal you’re serving. Casas Adobes Flower Shop has a romantic summertime design in mind.
