A Step Beyond the Ordinary

Flowers That Will Make You Excited For Summer

By casasflowers on May 21, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Summer. 0 Comments

If there's one thing we love here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, it's the change of seasons. Fall to winter, winter to spring and---maybe the most glorious of all---spring to summer. There are a bevy of seasonal flowers that open up in spring and carry right into summer, such as hydrangea, dahlia, marigold and more. It's as though the two seasons conspired to shower us in the most beautiful and dazzling of blossoms through the warmer months. It's our pleasure to offer you a window into what summer will look like, flower-wise, even as we bid adieu to spring. Read More about Flowers That Will Make You Excited For Summer

Make Memorial Day Count

By casasflowers on May 14, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Holidays, Memorial Day. 0 Comments

We've got many patriotic holidays on the calendar, but the only one dedicated to honoring those troops who sacrificed their lives for their country is Memorial Day. This May 28th, join Casas Adobes Flower Shop in remembering our fallen heroes. The three-day weekend ensures that we have ample time to gather with friends and family to do just that, and many of us will be hosting dinners and barbecues to both herald the arrival of summer and to pay our respects to the men and women in our lives whose courage has impacted so many. If you're hosting a gathering (or attending one) where there is a guest of honor---someone who is particularly feeling a loss right now---offer them a gift of flowers that reflects your support and acknowledgement.

By casasflowers on May 7, 2018 in Floral Design, Mother's Day. 0 Comments

If you're planning on giving flowers to the mamas in your life this May 13th, you're not alone. Americans will spend over 2 billion dollars on their floral gifts for mom this month, and Casas Adobes Flower Shop is prepared for the requests of fathers, kids and of course everyone else for gorgeous ones. We've been fairly categorical about it, selecting our most mom-worthy bouquets and designs for inclusion in a gallery of Mother's Day looks, each one more lovely than the next. But of course what you buy depends on the mom you're buying for. Read More about Make Mother’s Day Her Best One

Standout Flowers For Grads Who Stand Out

By flowermanager on April 30, 2018 in Gifts, Graduation. 0 Comments

School is nearly out, and you know what that means: a whole new crop of graduates, fresh off to college come fall. We here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop are looking ahead to the graduations, award ceremonies, proms and parties that will fill the coming season with the sound of applause and congratulations. It's as customary to offer flowers to a graduate as it is to wear them to prom; in fact, this is a time where flowers are often called upon to assist in providing a festive or formal tone to end of the school year events and celebrations.

A Vivid Gesture Of Appreciation

By casasflowers on April 23, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Teacher Gifts. 0 Comments

Make Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Weeks count this year (yes, they fall on the same week, May 6 through May 12) and offer the wonder women in your life a flower design that communicates your appreciation and admiration. These are fields dominated mostly by women, women who are mentors and mamas, sisters, cousins, friends, neighbors and colleagues. They are women who educate, nurture and empower. They deserve a gift as vibrant and alive as they are. Read More about A Vivid Gesture Of Appreciation

An Earth Day Gift They Won’t Forget

By casasflowers on April 16, 2018 in Earth Day, Flowers & Plants. 0 Comments

Earth Day is April 22, and we here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop love watching our community come together to celebrate Mother Earth through recycling drives, plantings, clean-ups---you name it. There are so many ways to carry out Earth Day's mission, which is to promote environmental awareness and remind the global community that we're all stewards of the planet. We think this begins at home, and we've devised a creative way to teach our kids (and ourselves) that caring for our Earth is more than something we do for one day but a way of life.

Let’s Hear It For Desktop Awareness

By casasflowers on April 9, 2018 in Administrative Professionals, Holidays. 0 Comments

Casas Adobes Flower Shop is calling for a little "Desktop Awareness" ahead of Administrative Professionals Day on April 25. We're asking workplaces to take stock of the state of their desks and other work surfaces---including, but not limited to, conference tables, waiting areas, point-of-entry desks and cubicles---and to ask themselves honestly: are our desks as happy as they can be? If the answer is no, and your work surfaces are desperately in need of a refresh, then do yourselves (and especially your admins) proud. Grace those surfaces with new flowers and plants.

We've got a new line in the shop here at Casas Adobes, and we're the only ones in Tucson where you'll find it. We love our flowers, we love our plants, but we're also loving our new chocolate, which comes to us by way of Ethereal Confections. This totally organic, single origin and blended chocolate is ethically sourced from trusted bean farmers, whose beans undergo a meticulous process---and transformation---into rich, delicious chocolate.

Easter Blooms From Our Baskets

By casasflowers on March 26, 2018 in Easter, Flowers & Plants, Holidays. 0 Comments

There's nothing sweeter than waking up on Easter morning to find that the bunny has left you a basket of chocolate goodies, if you're a kid (and even if you aren't, we wouldn't judge!). We're huge fans of the Easter basket tradition here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, and we mean that in every sense. We love designing a beautiful spring look inside a basket as much as we love filling one to the brim with Peeps and chocolate bunnies. Read More about Easter Blooms From Our Baskets

A Magnificent, Fragrant Bouquet For Spring

By casasflowers on March 19, 2018 in Flowers & Plants, Roses, Spring. 0 Comments

One of the divine things about the arrival of spring and the glorious haul of flowers that it provides is that everything smells fresh again. The flowers themselves contribute much to this condition, but not every bloom is created equal when it comes to scent. Some flowers just got luckier than others, like the rose, whose fragrance is the result of some 300 chemicals, only a handful of which give it that recognizable aroma. But every flower to one degree or another has a smell. We at Casas Adobes Flower Shop can attest to this. Read More about A Magnificent, Fragrant Bouquet For Spring
