When color powerhouse Pantone announced its pick for Color of the Year 2018, the creative world took notice. Pantone's choice, Ultra Violet, is an extraordinary color, both majestic and mystical. Since the COY is supposed to capture the cultural zeitgeist and make a projection about the coming year, this blue-based purple is carrying a lot on its shoulders. Here at Robertson's Flowers, we fully embrace this intriguing color, mostly because we've had purple blooming in our shop for a long time.

Galentine's Day is all the reason you need to celebrate your best ladies this February 13; after all, that's what it was designed for. It sprang into being during a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all her girls out to lunch and proclaimed it "Galentine's . . . only the best day of the year!"
Today, women have adapted the fictional holiday to their own ends, spending time with female friends, family members and colleagues in order to show their love and affection. We here at Robertson's Flowers are here for it, and we think it should include flowers. Read More about Give Your Favorite Friends Flowers For Galentine’s Day »

At Robertson's Flowers, we're well-versed in all the ways that people give flowers to each other. We've seen last-minute splurges on roses and fielded carefully customized bouquets planned weeks in advance. There are many occasions that call for flowers, and many imaginative approaches to giving them, but one of our favorites is Flowers For A Year, which is exactly what it sounds like. A fresh, seasonal bouquet delivered every month to your recipient's doorstep - a literal year filled with flowers. Read More about Vivid Blooms To Send Them All Year »
Is there anything more beautiful than a bed of spring tulips? We at Robertson's Flowers don't think so, but we also don't believe in waiting until spring to enjoy one of the most celebrated of all flowers, a bloom so gorgeous that the poets of antiquity even had something to say about it. There are tulip festivals across the world, and we can understand why. It's that same adoration that moves us to embrace tulips in winter. Yes, even in the coldest of seasons, tulips shine bright.

When International Floral Distributors released its annual trend report for 2018's floral designs, we at Robertson's Flowers couldn't have been more thrilled. One of the styles spoke to us in particular, and it's an approach with which we are intimately familiar. IFD is calling it "Positively Posh," and that's a pretty accurate capture of what this look is about. Whimsical and romantic, designs in this style are a gorgeous blend of the traditional and the modern. Read More about Trending: 2018’s Positively Posh Flowers »

Yes, we said it. These centerpieces are guaranteed a spot on even the pickiest of Pinterest flower boards.
We're not tooting our own horn for nothing. At Robertson's Flowers, we feel like the Thanksgiving centerpiece has been long overdue for some image rehab. Rustic cornucopias and plaid taffeta ribbons are nice - as are taper candles encircled by harvest florals - but we've got a broader view of what the Thanksgiving centerpiece can do. We like the idea of mixing it up with the season's loveliest blooms, berries, and garden goodies in a palette that feels more romantic than rustic. Check out some of our seasonal favorites to see an upgraded centerpiece. Read More about Pinterest-Worthy Centerpieces for Thanksgiving »
Thanksgiving is on the horizon, and if you're like many Americans, you'll be traveling over hill and dale (or just up the block) to gather with friends and family. Last year, 50 million people drove at least 50 miles to do the same. And while you may be contributing an item to the table, we at Robertson's Flowers encourage you to arrive with something else: a host gift.
Even in these post-Emily Post days, a host gift is a lovely gesture that shows your gratitude. It's an occasion to give something beautiful to people who are giving so much to you and going to such lengths to present a holiday feast. Naturally, we think the best host gift is flowers.

Autumn in Philly is already gorgeous, make no mistake. But at Robertson's Flowers, we believe you can gild the lily, specifically by adding some dazzling dahlias for Fall to your seasonal decorations. The flower of the moment also happens to be a terrific bloom for the cooler months. Its intricate beauty adds dimension and texture to an arrangement, and because it comes in a variety of nuanced colors, it plays well against bolder, more audacious harvest hues.

"Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower" - Albert Camus
The arrival of fall is highly anticipated by many. Whether you are ready for cooler weather, or looking forward to celebrating some of our most beloved holidays, autumn gives everyone a fresh outlook. As foliage colors emerge and apple orchards overflow, the abundance of the fall season is easy to see. Fall florals are rich and abundant as well, showing off deep colors and gorgeous attire. The team at Robertson's Flowers has designed a collection of fall flowers that are sure to fill your home with seasonal ambiance, or convey warmth and affection to someone you love. We would like to take this opportunity to share some of our most beautiful offerings of the season. Read More about Fall Florals and Harvest Centerpieces »
In the 1960's, a man in California gave his wife a transistor radio. When she asked why, he answered :just because!". Those two words started a family tradition, and he and his wife and children would dedicate one day a year specifically for doing random nice things for each other. The idea caught on in his neighborhood and community over the years, and in 2005 the day was added to the national registry. This is a day when we set aside schedules, routines, and everything we are required to do - in order to revel in life, family, and spontaneous whimsy.
The designers at Robertson's Flowers provide floral arrangements for special occasions from Philadelphia weddings to birthday celebrations and welcoming new babies. But we love the surprise and smiles that accompany flowers "just because." Read More about Beautiful Florals ‘Just Because’ »
