Rebel Hill Florist invites you to sit back, relax and breathe a sigh of relief this Labor Day---after all, that's what this day was intended for. In the 19th century, it was proposed that the American worker deserved both a day of recognition and a day of rest, and ultimately, the first Monday in September was adopted by the nation for this purpose. Now, we think of Labor Day weekend as the second in a pair of bookends to summer, a time when we try to get one last trip in or to gather with friends and family for one last true summer barbecue. And while that's all well and good, this is also the perfect moment for some self-care, the chance to both refresh yourself and your space. Read More about Seriously Serene Late Summer Flowers
Rebel Hill Florist is enamored of the humble worker bee---and we think you should be, too.
After all, this industrious little insect pollinates at least 90 commercially-grown crops, as well as 80% of all flowering plants. Without them, we'd be missing everything from apples and avocados to coffee and carrots. Over millions of years, bees have adapted into efficient machines for transporting both nectar and pollen back to their colonies, which can consist of anywhere from 10,000 to 60,000 bees. There, they turn that nectar into honey and bee bread, a nutrient-rich food source. And along the way, they pollinate thousands and thousands of plants, which is the only way those plants will grow. How do they do it? Read More about Bee-Friendly Flowers Are Beautiful
Rebel Hill Florist knows that feeling you get when you arrive home with fresh flowers or receive them at the door as a gift. After admiring them from every angle, you'll be faced with where to display them in your home. Should it be the dining room table? The mantel? The foyer? On the credenza behind the couch? In short, where should those flowers live?
Depends on the flowers. A highly fragrant design may not be the best choice for a dining area, while a humidity-loving orchid could thrive next to the tub in the bathroom. A small, compact grouping of flowers looks just right on a desk, while flowers with dramatic scale (like gladiolus) make a glorious entryway or living room piece. The point is, know thy flowers.

The start of school is just around the corner, and we've got one other thing to add to your school supplies list---a teacher gift.
We know, we know. Typically we offer the teachers, administrators and staff in our lives a gift at the end of the year as a way to say "job well done" and to express our gratitude for all of their efforts. And while Rebel Hill Florist isn't suggesting you forgo that custom, we are suggesting that you add a new one, offering your child's educators (or yours) a little something at the start of the year as well. Why? It establishes a positive relationship right away. It gives the teacher something to set right on her desk, brightening it up and bringing nature into the classroom. And if you choose wisely, your gift can be something that endures all year. Read More about A Top Of The Class Gift

There are few occasions that call upon our national pride quite like the 4th of July does. This iconic summer holiday is also a historic celebration of our country's independence, a commemoration of those who have nobly served the U.S., and a time to gather with friends and family. We attend parades and other festivities, spend time in the great outdoors, play football, go boating, soak up the sun. We host barbecues and potlucks and pool parties, and at the end of it all, we head out to see the fireworks, our own sparklers in tow. Whether we're having people over to our own homes or going to someone else's, some patriotic flowers are in order to mark the occasion the way only flowers can. Rebel Hill Florist is here to help you do that. Read More about Flowers For Your 4th of July Table
Summer calls for long, voluptuous dinner parties that take advantage of the warm days and mild nights. This is the time to plan a gathering that showcases the season's most delicious dishes.

Sangria and wine are in order, as is a charcuterie spread with meats, cheeses and the bountiful fruits of the season. What's missing? Flowers, of course. Rebel Hill Florist has plenty of beautiful designs that work as table decor or the centerpiece itself for your summer dinners, whether they take place indoors lit by candles or outside under the stars.
