The fall season is one of extravagance - full of overflowing fields and abundant harvests. It is a season of indulgence, offering pumpkin spice lattes, hot apple cider, and pumpkin pie.

Housewarming parties are becoming less popular, but giving housewarming gifts is still a wonderful way to welcome new neighbors. When someone moves to a different neighborhood, they may feel a bit disconnected, unsure, or frazzled - and your welcome smile at the front door is sure to make a difference! Offer to help unpack, bring a home-cooked meal, or give them something beautiful from Casas Adobes Flower Shop. Your act of hospitality will go a long way to helping them to relax, and who know? This may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship! Keeping the House Warm: The term housewarming is quite literal. In the days before electricity, new homeowners were given gifts of firewood in order to stay warm during the winter.  Read More about Give Flowers for Beautiful Housewarming Gifts

Grandparents Day Bouquets and Gifts

By casasflowers on August 24, 2017 in Grandparents Day. 0 Comments

Grandparents Day was established in 1978, when Congress agreed to recognize it officially. The day, observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day, was originally presented by Marian McQuade, a mother and grandmother herself. Marian's vision was one of family togetherness and legacy. She hoped that families would use the day to plan reunions and gatherings, so that elders could share wisdom and stories - and younger generations could show their appreciation and gratitude. The effort to keep the generations knitted together came as American families were more and more leaving behind the tradition of multi-generational living. It is in the spirit of love, gratitude and family that Casas Adobes Flowers Shop celebrates this month!  Read More about Grandparents Day Bouquets and Gifts

Express Condolences with Funeral Flowers

By casasflowers on July 26, 2017 in Sympathy. 0 Comments

Flowers are special during all occasions of life, but can be especially poignant and meaningful when a loved one passes away. Funeral flowers and sympathy arrangements are a beautiful way to  commemorate a special life and an even more special person. The team at Casas Adobes Flower Shop is very sorry to hear of your loss, and we are here to assist in any way we can during this difficult time. Which Flowers to Send? The gladioli bloom is a traditional choice among funeral flowers. The name is derived from the legacy of the Roman gladiator, most likely because of the flower's elongated stem which resembles a sword. Gladioli have come to signify loyalty, strength of character and moral integrity, and are considered especially meaningful for memorial services.  Read More about Express Condolences with Funeral Flowers
