Offer to help unpack, bring a home-cooked meal, or give them something beautiful from Casas Adobes Flower Shop. Your act of hospitality will go a long way to helping them to relax, and who know?

Grandparents Day Bouquets and Gifts

Grandparents Day was established in 1978, when Congress agreed to recognize it officially. The day, observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day, was originally presented by Marian McQuade, a mother and grandmother herself. Marian's vision was one of family togetherness and legacy. She hoped that families would use the day to plan reunions and gatherings, so that elders could share wisdom and stories - and younger generations could show their appreciation and gratitude. The effort to keep the generations knitted together came as American families were more and more leaving behind the tradition of multi-generational living. It is in the spirit of love, gratitude and family that Casas Adobes Flowers Shop celebrates this month!  Read More about Grandparents Day Bouquets and Gifts »

Express Condolences with Funeral Flowers

Flowers are special during all occasions of life, but can be especially poignant and meaningful when a loved one passes away. Funeral flowers and sympathy arrangements are a beautiful way to commemorate a special life and an even more special person. The team at Casas Adobes Flower Shop is very sorry to hear of your loss, and we are here to assist in any way we can during this difficult time. Which Flowers to Send? The gladioli bloom is a traditional choice among funeral flowers. The name is derived from the legacy of the Roman gladiator, most likely because of the flower's elongated stem which resembles a sword. Gladioli have come to signify loyalty, the strength of character and moral integrity, and are considered especially meaningful for memorial services.
