Desktop Designs & Cubes for Administrative Professionals Week

Administrative Professionals Week was instituted in the 1950's as a way to fill the many empty office positions in growing post-war businesses. Although originally established as National Secretary's Day, the initiative grew to encompass a full week of observances and to include a range of professionals - from administrative assistants to front desk receptionists. These days, the week-long celebration is meant to honor all of those professionals who support others in the office. After all, these are the people that truly make the business run smoothly day to day. We don't know where we would be without these dedicated and diligent individuals, and that is reason enough to celebrate Administrative Professionals Week. At Robertson's Flowers, we have the sophisticated, elegant, beautiful and thoughtful designs you will need to let your most valuable employees that you couldn't do without them.

Easter Flowers & Gift Baskets

There are many Easter traditions, from finding hidden baskets to eating the ears off of chocolate bunnies. And whether you get up early for the big Easter egg hunt or the sunrise service at your church, Easter Sunday holds special meaning for everyone. This April 16th, celebrate your way, but don't forget the one things we all love about this holiday - the Easter flowers. Did You Know? Easter Sunday traditions stem from two distinctly different origins - the fertility festivals of the pagan druids, and the Christian tradition of the Resurrection of Jesus.  Over the centuries, they have intermingled and most people observe elements from both influences.  Read More about Easter Flowers & Gift Baskets »

Flowers for Those Who Rescue Animals

In every walk of life, there are unsung heroes. On March 23rd, we celebrate the tireless efforts of the dedicated staff and volunteers who work to rescue animals - most notably puppies and dogs. National Puppy Day strives to shine a light on the problems of overpopulation and overcrowding in shelters and to highlight the very great need for families to adopt from these facilities. Those involved in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming canines are passionate about their mission and sometimes go to great lengths to find a forever home for every possible pet. We wish every dog could be as loved as this gorgeous guy! This bride and groom asked us to cover his harness in wedding flowers in order to become a part of the bridal party. How cute is that?

Floral Decor for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick's Day celebrates all things Irish, and that means the beauty of many shades of green. At Robertson's Flowers, we have the privilege of working with the florals, plants, and natural elements that exhibit nuances of this verdant shade in spectacular ways. This March 17th, we look forward to celebrating the "wearing o' the green" in a different way, by covering Philadelphia in this soothing, vibrant color. Did You Know? St. Patrick, a Christian missionary to the Emerald Isle, was not Irish, but British. But he so adored his adopted homeland - and they so adored him - that upon his death he was given a feast day to honor him, The rest is history. But as St. Patrick was "Irish by association", so can we all be Irish on St. Patty's Day. Read More about Floral Decor for St. Patrick’s Day »

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.
