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 »
Robertson's Flowers loves this time of year, when our Philadelphia-area grads are off to parties, proms, award ceremonies and, of course, graduation. For many of our young scholars, the flowers they receive (or give) during this time are some of the first of their lives, and without a doubt some of the most memorable. This is why the floral gift you offer your favorite grad takes on a lot of significance---not only will these flowers be remembered, but they will be well photographed, tied to one of the most emotion-filled moments we look back on. Graduation isn't the only momentous event to take place in spring, either. Read More about Custom Celebrations For The Spring Season »
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. Read More about A Bit Of Green For Earth Day »
After a long winter, it's time to take stock of our work surfaces. This includes, but is not limited to, conference tables, reception areas, personal desks, cubicles and common tables. If these surfaces are looking cluttered, dismal or just totally bereft, it's time for a little "Desktop Awareness." We here at Robertson's Flowers feel it's incumbent upon us to bring attention to the plight of sad desks everywhere ahead of Administrative Professionals Day, which falls on April 25. It's time to refresh those work stations with plants and flowers. Read More about Raising Desktop Awareness For Desks Everywhere »
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.

Spring has arrived and Robertson’s is stocked with fresh blooms such as tulips and hyacinth, hydrangea plants, trendy home decor, personal accessories and unique Easter and Passover inspired gifts. Stop by our Chestnut HIll or Bryn Mawr… Read More about Easter is Blooming at Robertson’s Flowers »
Don't get us wrong---we know how to construct a good Easter basket here at Robertson's Flowers, down to the perfect shade of green grass on which a classic chocolate bunny rests. But we're also invested in styling our baskets with flowers, of course, and to that end, we've got petals as pretty as a dozen dyed eggs and other goodies that will delight the eye and the senses far more than a pack of Peeps.

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.
