As the new year approaches, we begin to think about changes we can make in our lives that will make us happier and healthier. The floral experts at Casas Adobes Flower Shop have discovered that simply adding flowers to your environment on a regular basis can do just that. Here's how:
Flowers bring creativity. Viewing your favorite color has been proven to boost creativity, so surround yourself with blooms in your favorite hues.
Flowers bring cleaner air. Plants and flowers absorb impurities and toxins in the air, purifying what we breathe in and helping us breathe easier.
Flowers bring less stress. The color green provides a calming effect, so being in the presence of flowers with leafy green foliage will decrease stress and anxiety and boost positive vibes. Read More about Healthy New You Is Easy With Flowers

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

If you haven't guessed already, we're taking a minute to show our effusive gratitude to one of our fave team members, in the spirit of Thanksgiving.

How about a new twist on Thanksgiving this year? Instead of just family, you invite friends too, or make it all about friends. We're talking co-workers, neighbors, teachers—it's called Friendsgiving, and yes, it's a thing.
Its inception is attributed to everything from a television show to Twitter to an ad campaign, but the truth is, Friendsgiving as a concept has been around a long time. Many of us can't travel to be with our flesh-and-blood over the holidays. Maybe we're working, home-bound or stationed elsewhere. Naturally, we compensate by doing the next best thing: having a Thanksgiving celebration with our chosen family, i.e. our friends. No matter what our Thanksgiving meal looks like, two things are for sure. There's a table and people are gathered around it, ready to eat. And where there's a table, there are flowers.

Is there anything more exciting than designing your Fall table? We here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop think not. And yes, we're biased. We're totally inclined to thrill at the prospect of making a table look as gorgeous as possible, all in hopes of pleasing the people who are gathered there. Today, we're talking tablescaping. Naturally, we start with the centerpiece and work our way out from that. Why? Because the centerpiece is the single item on the table that captures the mood and spirit of your soiree. It reflects whether this is a formal dinner, a casual one or somewhere in between. It expresses the season or the occasion. Everything else follows suit.
