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

A Weekend Reserved For Entertaining

By robertsonsflowers on May 14, 2018 in Flowers, Memorial Day. 0 Comments

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

A Moment With One Of Our Moms

By robertsonsflowers on May 7, 2018 in Flowers, Gifts, Mother's Day, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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

Custom Celebrations For The Spring Season

By robertsonsflowers on April 30, 2018 in Celebrations, Chestnut Hill Store, Flower Gifts, Flowers, Prom Flowers, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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

A Bit Of Green For Earth Day

By robertsonsflowers on April 16, 2018 in Earth Day. 0 Comments

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

Raising Desktop Awareness For Desks Everywhere

By robertsonsflowers on April 9, 2018 in Administrative Professional's Week, Flowers, Plants, Tulips. 0 Comments

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

A Fresh Addition For Spring

By robertsonsflowers on April 2, 2018 in Flowers, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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.

Fill Your Easter Basket With Flowers

By robertsonsflowers on March 26, 2018 in Easter. 0 Comments

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.

Meet Scent Standout, Hyacinth

By robertsonsflowers on March 19, 2018 in Flowers, Spring Flowers. 0 Comments

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.
