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
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.

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. Read More about Let’s Hear It For Desktop Awareness
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.

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
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
They say it's in like a lion and out like a lamb, but we here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop are enjoying March so far, first and foremost for the wonderful flowers it gives us. We're filling up our arms with the assorted goodies of the season, and everything looks vibrant and feels fresh. And even if it isn't quite spring yet officially, our weather here doesn't hold us back. We can go ahead and pretend it is now. Read More about Spring’s Bells And Whistles
International Women's Day is an occasion on which we honor the achievements of women young and old, past and present. And we're not alone. Over 100 countries worldwide participate, making IWD a massive global effort and a huge opportunity to connect over what we have in common, rather than what divides us. Casas Adobes Flower Shop knows that one of the most popular ways to celebrate the women on this day is to give them flowers (in Italy, they exchange yellow mimosas), and we've got just the bouquet for that.

What's the best way to ensure that you love the flowers you receive as a gift? Pick them out yourself, of course.

On what occasions do flowers matter more than others? At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we find that it's the ones that are most personal to you, that don't necessarily adhere to a holiday or a calendar occasion. These unique moments belong to you and the recipient alone, and these flower occasions reflect the reason and the relationship between you perfectly. Read More about Uniquely Meaningful Flowers
