We spend a lot of time at the start of spring thinking about how to pare down in our homes, performing deep cleans and deciding what will stay and what will go. We think about what still serves us in our private spaces (and in our gardens), and what does not, and start whittling down from there. The urge to refresh our homes is strong, but we here at Robertson's Flowers recommend that you focus instead on what you can add in to bring a sense of renewal and well-being to your space.

We love to design for the eyes here at Robertson's Flowers, don't get us wrong, but it's another thing altogether to design for the nose. Our olfactory sense is powerful (just ask the scientists) and one of the most meaningful ways we associate certain feelings with people, places, and events. All flowers have a fragrance, even the ones that appear not to. We might describe that scent as "fresh" and "green," but it's there, and when you've developed a nose for these things, as we have, you pick up on it right away.

Oh, the charms of spring. We at Robertson's Flowers can hardly wait for the most glorious of seasons to make itself felt in earnest here in Philadelphia, but until then, we've got flowers. A dizzying array of fragrant, voluptuous, seasonal flowers that are just begging us to work them into designs that suggest all of the attitudes of spring---a sense of rebirth, renewal, joy.

Every year, two things happen: Pantone selects its color of the year (and we're big fans of this year's pick) and International Women's Day happens. On this day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women, we join over 100 countries in a global effort to acknowledge the most influential women in our lives---our mentors, teachers, guides, mothers, sisters and heroes. We honor the work that continues to be done on behalf of women everywhere, by women everywhere. This March 8, Pantone's vivid Ultra Violet and IWD join forces, and we at Robertson's Flowers couldn't be happier about it. Read More about Vivid Violet Is The Color Of #PressForProgress »

When's the last time you treated yourself to flowers?
We should clarify---we don't mean the kind pulled from the bin at the supermarket. We mean a rich, robust, fragrant, layered clutch of flowers, brought together in a vase just so by skilled designers. We mean a piece of art that happens (very deliberately, we might add) to be made of flowers. If it's been awhile (or worse, never!), then allow us at Robertson's Flowers to elaborate on why it's so important to give yourself the gift of blooms.

Some of our favorite flower exchanges here at Robertson's Flowers have nothing to do with the major events, holidays or occasions we typically think of as warranting them. It's the flower gifts that are personal to the people involved and where the giving is entirely self-motivated that really inspire us. And though we have category-upon- category of flowers organized in such a way as to get you to the perfect design for an occasion, we love the fact that when it's a unique exchange, you can pick from wherever you like.

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 »
