Chic Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday rich with tradition, and we're here for it. Casas Adobes Flower Shop welcomes all of the fall flowers in their rich, rustic colors, as well as the leaves, berries, twigs and anything else from the forest floor that finds its way to us. We love working with the new textures and looks that the holiday season ushers in. It should come as no surprise to anyone, then, that we're big fans of the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Floral centerpieces have been around since antiquity, so when you're placing that arrangement at the heart of your table, you're participating in a ritual that's been going since 2,500 BCE. Talk about traditional. Occasionally, the standard floral centerpiece for Thanksgiving can feel a little, well, antique. Which is why we've reworked it.

Colorful Gifts for Your Holiday Host

Make them swoon this Thanksgiving with a gorgeous array of colorful blooms, is our position here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop. It's customary to offer your holiday hosts a gift for their efforts, even if you're already contributing something to the table.

It's traditional to present a floral gift that is already in a vase and to have it delivered the day before the event or the day after. Why?

Floral Gifts for Veterans Day

Just before Thanksgiving, we take some time to express our gratitude for a particularly special group of people, those who have served in our U.S. military. Veterans Day has been around in some form or another since 1919, originally conceived as "Armistice Day" and intended to remember the end of WWI, which occurred on the same date a year before. Over the years, the national holiday solidified into what it is now, a time reserved for honoring the men and women who devoted themselves to protecting and defending our country. At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we maintain a collection of arrangements for just this occasion. While we collectively honor our vets here in Tucson through parades and other events, we believe that sending floral gifts for Veterans Day is a meaningful way to show appreciation for your favorite patriots.

Sweetest Day Inspires Acts of Kindness

Although more prevalent in the Northeast and Midwest, Sweetest Day has been continuously celebrated since 1916. It was established by a group of candy executives in Cleveland, who banded together to give away over 26,000 boxes of candy to orphans, shut-ins, and the needy. Blasted by cynics for being self-serving in trying to establish another holiday that would require people to buy lots of candy, the movement nevertheless grew - and today, remains as a day set aside to show kind and sweet gestures to those who may be struggling a bit. October 21 is Sweetest Day, and is a wonderful opportunity to let someone know you love and support them. Casas Adobes Flower Shop has the flowers, gifts, and chocolates you'll need.  Read More about Sweetest Day Inspires Acts of Kindness »
