Rather than go to the ends of the earth to find that dad in your life something special for Father's Day, look to the earth for inspiration.
Robertson's Flowers & Events acknowledges that shopping for dad is difficult, and this June 17 will likely be no exception. Though we may implore him to tell us what he wants, even needs, dads aren't very forthcoming in offering gift ideas. They tend to put themselves last and everybody else first, preferring to stay out of the limelight and to instead focus it on everyone else in the family. But fear not. This year, we've got a clever solution to the dilemma of what to give dad. Read More about An Easy Green Gift Idea For Dad
Here at Robertson's Flowers & Events, we want to give you a taste of what summer has in store, flower-wise. Does that involve peonies, you ask? Why yes, yes it does.
Peonies are one of our favorite flowers to work with. To us, they just scream summer in a vase, with their manifold layers, each one perfectly painted with color. What makes peonies so precious is that they don't, in fact, bloom very long each season. But if you treat them right once they arrive in the home, you'll have them around for a good long time.

A PSA from Robertson's Flowers & Events: June 8 is Best Friend's Day, and we don't want you to forget it. This is the moment to honor the person (or people) who has stood by you through thick and thin, helping to create some of your most unforgettable memories (and jokes). Round up your closest friends and celebrate your singular relationship, whether you go to brunch, dinner or cocktails. Flowers are an easy add to the mix; give a design that captures how substantial, meaningful and beautiful your friendship is. Read More about Heart Your BFF? Send Flowers June 8
On May 28th, we honor the soldiers who died in service to country, remembering the friends and family whose heroism touched our lives. But this is also a time when we gather together with the people in our lives now. The three-day weekend on the cusp of summer is an occasion to go outdoors and celebrate the change of seasons and the time we have together. Many people will be hosting backyard barbecues, al fresco dinners or other events in tribute to Memorial Day. Whether big or small, informal or formal, flowers are often called for. We use them in multiple ways on an occasion like this---to commemorate our fallen heroes, to decorate our outdoor tables and to enhance our outdoor spaces overall in preparation for summer. Robertson's Flowers has an abundance of flowering plants and floral designs to do just that. Read More about A Weekend Reserved For Entertaining
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.
