When we think of the Christmas holidays, we picture plenty of red and green, twinkling lights and of course, lots of evergreen foliage everywhere we look. Holly plants are a superstar of holiday decor, and it’s easy to see why. Not only is holly the perfect color for Christmas, it’s rich history and symbolism brings ancient traditions into the present day. Take a look at why the designers at Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist find December’s birth “flower” to be everything we love this time of year. Read More about Enjoy the History and Tradition of Holly »
Every holiday season, while many people are preparing for joy and merry-making, the families of fallen veterans painstakingly prepare for another holiday without their loved one by their side. We encourage those families to consider participating in a wreath-laying ceremony like Wreaths Across America. Started at Arlington National Cemetery, this time-honored ceremony is conducted in various communities across the country and abroad. Beginning a new family tradition that pays tribute to your beloved is just the way to celebrate their life of service and sacrifice this season. The floral artisans at Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist have created beautiful holiday memorial flowers to commemorate your loved one's dedication and service to our country.

If you're participating in Secret Santa this year, it's sure to be a good time. The popular group gift swap is a mainstay in the West, with dozens of variations - some of them online - in play.

Secret Santa is a great way to bring coworkers or friends together for the holiday season and to ensure that everyone walks away with something without breaking the bank.
But finding a gift can be a challenge, given the fact that we may not know the preferences and tastes of our recipient. Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist is here to help. Read More about Tempting Secret Santa Gifts »

It is estimated that over 34 million poinsettia plants will be sold this Christmas, and that number represents 25% of all the potted plants sold this year. The king of the Christmas flowers is prolific during this season, seen everywhere from corporate lobbies to nativity scenes. Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist is proud to offer high-quality, long-lasting poinsettia plants for every name on your list - but why is this classic flowering plant so strongly associated with this holiday?
The legend of the poinsettia plant began in Mexico, which is where the plant was discovered by Joel Roberts Poinsett. Locals told Poinsett of the story of a young girl who wished to bring a gift to the Christ child on the first Christmas, but she was poor and had no means to bring an offering. Placing a bouquet of raggedy wildflowers at His feet in a gesture of love, the weeds transformed into the beautiful poinsettia. Read More about Traditional Poinsettia – Christmas Flowers »
