Robertson's Flowers doesn't pretend to be a travel guide, but we can point you in the direction of some of the country's best flower festivals and events.
Every spring and summer, a whole crop of festivities pops up around the nation in honor of a particular area's signature flower (in Michigan, it's tulips; in California, the poppy). It seems we all love to celebrate our most beautiful assets, inviting others to join us in celebration of our environment and to learn more about local culture. To that end, we've rounded up four such festivals for you to bookmark on the calendar. Read More about The Top 4 Floral Festivals & Events »
It's summertime, and the living is easy---partially because we've got some sweet tunes for you to cue up on the sound dock. Robertson's Flowers may be in the business of florals, but we know a thing or two about music, too. Specifically, we're aware that songwriters and performers have been inspired by the world of flowers, plants and herbs for what seems like ages. Artists have long used the natural landscape as fodder for their work, and music is no exception. Everyone from soft crooners to hard rockers has taken a note from flowers, using them in titles and as metaphors, exploring their mythology, even penning odes to them. Don't believe us? Ask Alexa to throw this mix on. Read More about Push Play On Our Floral Playlist »

Going on vacay this summer? Robertson's Flowers sure hopes so, whether it's that milestone trip abroad or a tour of the States. If you aren't planning anything more than a staycation, no worries, you can fake an atmosphere of worldly well-traveledness with flowers.
Don't believe us? Flowers have the capacity to conjure up memories, to reflect the spirit and landscape of other cultures, to transport us to distant places or distant moments. It's because they make such a strong appeal to the senses (with the exception of sound), connecting us to a moment or a destination in a way that many things can't.

Like many of you, Robertson's Flowers & Events will be spending Independence Day commemorating our nation's rich history and celebrating our freedoms by exercising them---gathering with friends and family, attending parades and staying all the way until the firework finale. Most of us will partake in barbecue and football and a long, easy day spent outdoors. Maybe we'll be at the lake or unwinding by the pool, or meandering down the street to our neighbor's annual potluck, waving our sparklers and bearing provisions. If we'll be spending the holiday in someone else's home, it's the sweetest of gestures to offer a hostess gift. And on this iconic American holiday, a delectable food gift feels just right.

Why is June the most popular month of the year to get married? We here at Robertson's Flowers & Events will tell you why: because it's beautiful.
The weather is more temperate---so blue skies and sunny days. People are up for adventure, taking their vacation days (and advantage of school being out) to explore new places and visit loved ones. And as for flowers? So many are at their peak, making it a veritable garden of floral choices for brides and grooms. We love designing for our June weddings, reveling in the textures, colors and fragrances of so many signature blooms. Where there are weddings, there are anniversaries, and the season's glorious offerings make the perfect floral gift there too. Read More about Anniversary Flowers That Will Make You Renew Your Vows »
Here at Robertson's Flowers & Events, we want to give you a taste of what summer has in store, flower-wise. Does that involve peonies, you ask? Why yes, yes it does.
Peonies are one of our favorite flowers to work with. To us, they just scream summer in a vase, with their manifold layers, each one perfectly painted with color. What makes peonies so precious is that they don't, in fact, bloom very long each season. But if you treat them right once they arrive in the home, you'll have them around for a good long time.

On May 28th, we honor the soldiers who died in service to country, remembering the friends and family whose heroism touched our lives. But this is also a time when we gather together with the people in our lives now. The three-day weekend on the cusp of summer is an occasion to go outdoors and celebrate the change of seasons and the time we have together. Many people will be hosting backyard barbecues, al fresco dinners or other events in tribute to Memorial Day. Whether big or small, informal or formal, flowers are often called for. We use them in multiple ways on an occasion like this---to commemorate our fallen heroes, to decorate our outdoor tables and to enhance our outdoor spaces overall in preparation for summer. Robertson's Flowers has an abundance of flowering plants and floral designs to do just that. Read More about A Weekend Reserved For Entertaining »
In honor of Mother's Day, Robertson's Flowers asked one of our own super moms to share her experience and insight when it comes to both floral design and raising kids.
Name: Sandy Robertson MacEachern
Kids' first names and ages: I have a daughter, Sarah (27) and a son, Jaime (22).
How did you get into floral work?
I'm part of the 4th generation at Robertson's, my family's business, so I started working on weekends as a teenager and it has just evolved from there. It's been such an amazing journey watching the company grow and evolve with the community and trends in the floral industry. Read More about A Moment With One Of Our Moms »
