Moving into a new neighborhood can be a bit overwhelming. Between unpacking boxes, getting kids settled and making sure that the internet is working, it is easy to feel a little lost.
So if you see a moving truck heading into your Philadelphia subdivision carrying a new family, be sure to greet them and ask if there is anything you can do to help. Consider bringing over a home-cooked meal, along with paper plates and utensils. You may even offer to help stack empty boxes, or run to the store for needed items. But once things settle down, sending a gift from Robertson's Flowers is an awesome way to assure them that they are welcome, and you are glad to be new neighbors.

Established by Congress in 1978, Grandparents Day began as a grassroots effort to help to preserve family histories. A mother and grandmother from West Virginia had the original idea, but her vision was far from commercial. Marian McQuade's dream was that people would use the day to gather together, share family stories and history, and honor "the keepers of the legacy" - grandparents and older generations.
She also saw this as a wonderful opportunity for grandchildren to show their appreciation and love for their grandparents. If your Grandma or Grandpa is a special person in your life, September 10 is the day to celebrate them. Read More about Floral Designs for Grandparents Day

In the 1960's, a man in California gave his wife a transistor radio. When she asked why, he answered :just because!". Those two words started a family tradition, and he and his wife and children would dedicate one day a year specifically for doing random nice things for each other. The idea caught on in his neighborhood and community over the years, and in 2005 the day was added to the national registry. This is a day when we set aside schedules, routines, and everything we are required to do - in order to revel in life, family, and spontaneous whimsy.
The designers at Robertson's Flowers provide floral arrangements for special occasions from Philadelphia weddings to birthday celebrations and welcoming new babies. But we love the surprise and smiles that accompany flowers "just because." Read More about Beautiful Florals ‘Just Because’

Nature is definitely amazing. Not only are flowers - in all their variety - absolutely gorgeous, but they are part of a delicate ecosystem. Butterflies and bees rely on the flowers for their survival, and we rely on the insects for pollination of all plants and flowers. Given the interdependence between people, flowers and insects, bee and butterfly gardens are an awesome way to celebrate the beauty of nature. And although some butterfly gardens are extravagant, you really only need a few flowers and plants to attract the industrious insects - whether in pots or window boxes! Robertson's Flowers is proud to provide the bright and beautiful flowers that will beckon and welcome them into your yard.
Wait, we want bees? You may be surprised to hear us speaking about attracting honeybees to your backyard. But the bee population worldwide is in rapid and dramatic decline, and these little guys need our help. They need healthy and safe places to gather nectar and pollen, so that they can continue to do what they do best. Remember, bees are a critical component to our food supply globally! And don't worry, scientists say that a honeybee foraging for food will pay you no attention - simply give them their space so they don't feel threatened, and you won't have to worry about being stung.
