Thanksgiving is on the horizon, and if you're like many Americans, you'll be traveling over hill and dale (or just up the block) to gather with friends and family. Last year, 50 million people drove at least 50 miles to do the same. And while you may be contributing an item to the table, we at Robertson's Flowers encourage you to arrive with something else: a host gift.
Even in these post-Emily Post days, a host gift is a lovely gesture that shows your gratitude. It's an occasion to give something beautiful to people who are giving so much to you and going to such lengths to present a holiday feast. Naturally, we think the best host gift is flowers.

Here in Philadelphia, we're gearing up for the Veterans Parade on November 5, as well as a wave of other events that celebrate our U.S. military veterans' service to their country. Our community is rich with such heroes, and as the observances get underway, we at Robertson's Flowers & Events are thinking about how personal gestures that extend our gratitude to our favorite patriots are just as important as public expressions. Naturally, we see the gift of flowers as the perfect way to honor our deserving family and friends. Read More about Floral Arrangements for Veterans Day
Autumn in Philly is already gorgeous, make no mistake. But at Robertson's Flowers, we believe you can gild the lily, specifically by adding some dazzling dahlias for Fall to your seasonal decorations. The flower of the moment also happens to be a terrific bloom for the cooler months. It's intricate beauty adds dimension and texture to an arrangement, and because it comes in a variety of nuanced colors, it plays well against bolder, more audacious harvest hues.

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.

Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild. ~Welsh Proverb
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’
