Were you aware that September is all about self care? Yes, the officially-designated month of well-being is a wonderful time to give a little attention to yourself. Particularly as we head into fall, it's an excellent moment to refresh your personal space, removing the the things that don't serve and adding the things that do. You may also want to evaluate your usual routine and assess whether or not you get enough exercise and have enough time built into your day to do things you want to do. Casas Adobes Flower Shop would humbly suggest getting flowers or plants (or picking up one of our aromatherapy baskets!) as the first step in treating yourself well this month.

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
Like you, Casas Adobes Flower Shop has fond memories of our grandparents. This September 9, we have an opportunity to honor our most cherished elders, the ones who passed down so much to us, including a respect for tradition. There are those customs that are unique to our own families, and then there are the ones that we participate in collectively, as a culture. One of those is the giving of flowers.

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
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
There are some flowers and plants that really do better in one part of your house than another. Looking for a great bathroom floral? Choose something like an orchid, which will lend an element of grace but also stand up to the subtropical climate of your shower. What about the dining room table? Look for flowers that provide a lot of visual impact and not a lot of fragrance. Foyer? A grand, tall design that functions as an accent or an art piece as well as a welcoming element. The point is, consider where you'll place those flowers or plants you get from Casas Adobes Flower Shop; it can make a huge difference! Read More about Giving Plants And Flowers A Home In Your House
Casas Adobes Flower Shop knows exactly how you can win the Most Likely To Succeed Award this year---give those teachers, admins and other staff at your kid's school (or yours!) flowers.
Yes, we tend to think of giving flowers to our beloved educators as a matter best left to the end of the year, a kind and fragrant thank you. But we'd argue that it's best to start off the year giving something green and growing. It not only establishes a positive relationship from the outset, but it brings the outdoors into the classroom or office---and the outdoors is something that everyone from the teacher to the student is probably missing. But that's not all a floral back-to-school gift can do. Read More about A Gift The Whole Class Will Love
