Earth Day is rolling around again on April 22, and we here at Robertson’s Flowers are happy to report that our Philadelphia community is pulling out all the stops when it comes to celebrating our great planet. The sheer variety of events going on about town offers us the chance to get educated and informed as well as to do something active to promote environmental awareness. Clean-ups, recycling drives and other initiatives give us an opportunity to give back to our community and to feel a part of the bigger global effort to preserve the Earth. It’s a little like terra firma’s birthday, and it deserves a party. After you’ve done your part, gather up friends and family and make a meal together. Shop local, serve a big salad and make sure you’re featuring some of Mother Nature’s greenest treasures.
Set the tone at an Earth Day get together and top a beautiful table with a Succulent Log. Though we have many succulent designs to choose from, we especially love this one for Earth Day. A range of green is presented here as the succulents take root in a bed of moss. The entire design is set in a rustic log, giving it an earthy, organic feel. Nestle some votive candles around for a touch of elegance.
Celebrate Earth’s natural resources, especially its flora and fauna, this April 22. Bring some nature indoors to help you do that.
