On December 15, Wreaths Across America holds its annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Many locations across the U.S. join them, paying tribute to those loved ones who lost their lives in service to country. Here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we can't think of a better time to stop and pay our respects to those family and friends we've lost than during the holidays. After all, this is a time when we're encouraged to embrace our loved ones and to feel gratitude that we have them. Read More about Lovely Wreath Memorials At The Holidays »
Are you feeling as creative as we are here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop? It's hard not to this time of year, when the focus is on being in the kitchen, making gifts for our friends and family, and decorating our homes. This season is truly what we make of it, and while we may be decking out our space with the beloved heirlooms and other decor we use every year, we'll be introducing fresh plants and flowers, too. The most notable of these is, of course, our Christmas tree. Then you have poinsettias, wreaths, floral centerpieces and accents and, yes, the garland! Who doesn't love a garland during the holidays?

If you're playing Secret Santa at the workplace or with another group this year, you're in for a real treat. This holiday gift swap isn't unique to the U.S., appearing in many forms throughout the West, from Kris Kindle in Ireland to Amigo Secreto in Latin America. It's hard to say where this gift exchange concept came from, but most point to Scandinavia, where people used to knock on doors and dash away before they could be identified, leaving a gift on the lucky recipient's doorstep.
Now, Secret Santa joins a whole host of other present-swapping games intended for groups, and at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we're in full support of all of them. Read More about Secret Santa Gifts With Spirit »
