Robertson's Flowers & Events is all for having a robust sense of tradition; after all, we work in flowers, one of the oldest and more powerful ways to commemorate an occasion. Flowers have been involved in social rituals across cultures since ancient times, and while we certainly come up with new and exciting ways to give them every year, we are also tied to the customs that have been passed down to us. With Grandparents Day just around the corner, it seems the perfect time to embrace and honor our sense of tradition when it comes to flowers.

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 »

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.

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.

" Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower" - Albert Camus
The arrival of fall is highly anticipated by many. Whether you are ready for cooler weather, or looking forward to celebrating some of our most beloved holidays, autumn gives everyone a fresh outlook. As foliage colors emerge and apple orchards overflow, the abundance of the fall season is easy to see. Fall florals are rich and abundant as well, showing off deep colors and gorgeous attire. The team at Robertson's Flowers has designed a collection of fall flowers that are sure to fill your home with seasonal ambiance, or convey warmth and affection to someone you love. We would like to take this opportunity to share some of our most beautiful offerings of the season. Read More about Fall Florals and Harvest Centerpieces »
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.
