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.

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.

We here at Robertson's Flowers are steeped in classic long-stemmed roses in the run-up to Valentine's Day, but our designers are skilled in a fresh, modern approach, too.

We see this holiday as an opportunity to create pieces that feel nuanced and customized, ensuring that you can express your feelings for someone in a way that feels tailored to your relationship with them.
