Are you ready for the year of purple? Color experts Pantone have made their pick for 2018 Color of the Year, and it's Ultra Violet, an intriguing shade and a bold choice. Pantone has been selecting an annual "It" color since 2000, the idea being that the color chosen will capture the cultural zeitgeist and reflect what's coming in the future. Designers, stylists, artists, florists and other creatives always look forward to hearing what the color will be and how they can incorporate it into the work they do.
We here at Rebel Hill Florist are no different. Ultra Violet - and more realistically, colors within the purple family - is a color that truly inspires us. Read More about Let Pantone’s Color Of The Year Brighten Up Your Winter
If you've never heard of Galentine's Day, allow Rebel Hill Florist to introduce it to you. In a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, the idea of a day reserved strictly for celebrating the love between girlfriends was born when main character Leslie Knope took all of her ladies out to lunch and proclaimed it "Galentine's Day . . . only the best day of the year."
Ever since, the notion of making February 13 a day for the ladies to show their love has been adopted by more and more women, who spend the day hosting their own long lunches or making it a true girl's night out. Read More about Galentine’s Day Bouquets For Your Besties

If you're participating in Secret Santa this year, lucky you. This group gift swap has a long and storied past; in the U.S., it was inspired by a 20th century philanthropist who generously distributed $100 to strangers in a Kansas City street. Elsewhere, anonymous holiday giving has been a long-standing tradition. In Latin America, it's called "Secretos Amigos," in Ireland, "Kris Kringel." No matter where it's played, the premise remains the same: a giver's identity remains concealed, keeping the focus on the act of giving rather than the individual responsible for it.
We at Rebel Hill Florist have put together a couple of gift ideas that will make your Secret Santa gift stand apart from the rest. Read More about Special Secret Santa Gifts
