Casas Adobes Flower Shop is proud to work with our customers during some of the most eventful times of their lives. Our work is important because the results are used to bring people together. Our flowers are exchanged to honor and celebrate, to commemorate and remember, to encourage and champion, to express love and sympathy. We have many stories of moments when flowers mattered, from the most heartbreaking to the most joyful of occasions. At every turn, flowers have played a part of making that occasion memorable and meaningful. Today we share two of those stories. Read More about How We Pay It Forward With Flowers

White Roses For Before (And After) Labor Day

By casasflowers on August 19, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Summer. 0 Comments

Here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we see late summer as a time when we're desperately in need of a refresh. There's no better time to clear up any summer clutter that has accumulated in our homes and to create a space that feels lighter, cooler and ready for fall. Labor Day is a historic occasion on which we both celebrate workers and acknowledge that they (us) need a break---hence the longer weekend. How perfect would it be then to install some crisp, serene white flowers throughout our homes, helping to support that restful vibe? Read More about White Roses For Before (And After) Labor Day

The Secret Life Of Bees

By casasflowers on August 12, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Summer. 0 Comments

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? Read More about The Secret Life Of Bees

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. Read More about Garden-To-Table Elegance

It's as though the two seasons conspired to shower us in the most beautiful and dazzling of blossoms through the warmer months. It's our pleasure to offer you a window into what summer will look like, flower-wise, even as we bid adieu to spring. Read More about Flowers That Will Make You Excited For Summer
