Mardi Gras Traditions and Celebrations

Derived both from traditions of the Christian faith and pagan fertility festivals, Mardi Gras is a holiday celebration unlike any other. Although famously celebrated in places such as New Orleans and Mobile, the birthplace of the custom, Mardi Gras festivities now take place in virtually every major city in the United States - from parades to costume contests, to over-the-top food festivals, "Fat Tuesday" does not disappoint. In you are having a Mardi Gras party, you'll need masks, beads, King Cake - and flowers! After all, you'll need to cover your home with the traditional gold, purple and green, and there is no more beautiful way to do that than with flowers. Robertson's Flowers is proud to be a part of all of Philadelphia's best events and celebrations, and this is no exception. Did You Know? Mardi Gras dates back to the early days of Christianity. As Rome tried to integrate the new faith with pagan tradition and ritual, they decided to have a massive party that culminated on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. During Lent, the faithful would fast and repent, so "Fat Tuesday" was created to eat all of the food in the house before the fast began. The tradition spread to France, where the name was translated "Mardi Gras".  Read More about Mardi Gras Traditions and Celebrations »

A Month To Celebrate Philadelphia Weddings

As we make our way through cold weather and snowstorms in this part of the country, we may wonder why February has been designated as National Wedding Month. It is not as if February is a popular month for nuptials - as a matter of fact, it falls at 10th place on the list, with June, August, and September being the top choices for brides. But the National Association of Bridal Consultants actually had a strong argument for choosing this wintry month for the designation, and it has more to do with wedding planning than wedding ceremonies. If you are among the many planning Philadelphia weddings this year, you can trust Robertson's Flowers to provide the most spectacular bridal bouquets, centerpieces, and venue decor - not to mention exceptional expertise and customer service.
