Bright Stunners For Better Health

By casasflowers on December 26, 2017 in Flowers & Plants, Get Well. 0 Comments

What's the best thing you can do for someone who is under the weather? Give them flowers. Sure, we're biased here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, but the research supports us. A 2008 study by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their room are less reliant on pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall. Flowers and plants also oxygenate what's likely an enclosed room, as well as add a dash of nature to an otherwise indoor affair. Read More about Bright Stunners For Better Health

Decorating With Winter Flowers

By casasflowers on December 22, 2017 in Flowers & Plants, Uncategorized. 0 Comments

While we here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop love our traditional floral scheme for the holidays, which includes a great deal of green and red, we also appreciate winter's other palette. Represented by a dizzying variety of blooms, this other color story is inspired by winter's first snowfall, which takes on an iridescent cast under street lamps and twinkle lights. Lavenders, pale pinks and a range of whites come into sharp focus for winter, with blooms that speak to the delicate, tranquil beauty of outdoors. Read More about Decorating With Winter Flowers

Secret Santa Gifts With Spirit

By casasflowers on December 1, 2017 in Christmas. 0 Comments

If you're playing Secret Santa at the workplace or with another group this year, you're in for a real treat. This holiday gift swap isn't unique to the U.S., appearing in many forms throughout the West, from Kris Kindle in Ireland to Amigo Secreto in Latin America. It's hard to say where this gift exchange concept came from, but most point to Scandinavia, where people used to knock on doors and dash away before they could be identified, leaving a gift on the lucky recipient's doorstep. Now, Secret Santa joins a whole host of other present-swapping games intended for groups, and at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we're in full support of all of them.

Chic Centerpieces for Thanksgiving

By casasflowers on November 10, 2017 in Autumn, Thanksgiving. 0 Comments

Thanksgiving is a holiday rich with tradition, and we're here for it. Casas Adobes Flower Shop welcomes all of the fall flowers in their rich, rustic colors, as well as the leaves, berries, twigs and anything else from the forest floor that finds its way to us. We love working with the new textures and looks that the holiday season ushers in. It should come as no surprise to anyone, then, that we're big fans of the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Floral centerpieces have been around since antiquity, so when you're placing that arrangement at the heart of your table, you're participating in a ritual that's been going since 2,500 BCE. Talk about traditional. Occasionally, the standard floral centerpiece for Thanksgiving can feel a little, well, antique. Which is why we've reworked it.

Colorful Gifts for Your Holiday Host

Make them swoon this Thanksgiving with a gorgeous array of colorful blooms, is our position here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop. It's customary to offer your holiday hosts a gift for their efforts, even if you're already contributing something to the table. And we see no reason why that offering shouldn't be bright and cheerful, especially as we enter the season of long, dark, cool nights. It's traditional to present a floral gift that is already in a vase and to have it delivered the day before the event or the day after. Why? That way, you aren't burdening your host with the task of trying to find a container or a place to display your flowers the day of. Read More about Colorful Gifts for Your Holiday Host

Floral Gifts for Veterans Day

By casasflowers on October 27, 2017 in Holidays, Uncategorized. 0 Comments

Just before Thanksgiving, we take some time to express our gratitude for a particularly special group of people, those who have served in our U.S. military. Veterans Day has been around in some form or another since 1919, originally conceived as "Armistice Day" and intended to remember the end of WWI, which occurred on the same date a year before. Over the years, the national holiday solidified into what it is now, a time reserved for honoring the men and women who devoted themselves to protecting and defending our country. At Casas Adobes Flower Shop, we maintain a collection of arrangements for just this occasion. While we collectively honor our vets here in Tucson through parades and other events, we believe that sending floral gifts for Veterans Day is a meaningful way to show appreciation for your favorite patriots.
