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. Read More about Classic Red Roses For The One You Love »
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. Read More about Pantone Declares 2018 The Year Of Purple »
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.

What's the best thing you can do for someone who is under the weather? Give them flowers.
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. Read More about Bright Stunners For Better Health »

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 »
