    Office Professional's Day

    Friday 4th May 2018

    A history of Office Professional's Day

    During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to Depression-era birth-rate decline and booming post-war business. The National Secretaries Association, founded in 1942, was formed to recognise the contributions of administrative personnel to the economy, support their personal development, and to help attract workers to the administrative field. The official period of celebration was first proclaimed by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles W. Sawyer as "National Secretaries Week", which was held June 1–7 in 1952 with Wednesday, June 4 designated as National Secretaries' Day. The first Secretaries' Day was sponsored by the National Secretaries Association with the support of corporate groups. The name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week in 1981 and became Administrative Professionals Week in 2000 to encomp

  7. ANZAC Day

    ANZAC Day

    Most of us are familiar with the archetypal image of ancient Greek scholars; with fabric draped around their shoulders, temples adorned with garlands of ... Ivy? Holly? Juniper? Think again! It’s Rosemary.

    For many Australians, this eminent perennial shrub is a key ingredient for our beloved lamb & potato roasts. We also know to fasten a sprig onto our collars on Anzac Day.

    But why Rosemary? Ancient mythology proposed that the plant’s fragrant aroma strengthened memory – which is why those Greek scholars wore Rosemary (not ivy, not holly, not juniper) in their hair - to help memorise their studies! This association with remembrance has continued to be woven into literature and folklore in cultures all over the world and today, it remains an emblem of remembrance & commemoration especially in Australia on Anzac Day. In fact, some Australians insist that a special species of the herb – called Gallipoli Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) -

    St Patrick's Day

    "What are those adorable fluffy green balls called?”

    The amazing florists in our retail stores are calling it the Green Fluffy Ball Phenomenon. “I get asked about them at least 5 times a day” says Bec from our Bondi store. She’s talking about the adorable carnation variety called Green Trick Dianthus. With a fuzzy golf ball sized bloom in an almost-fluorescent-green colour, it’s no wonder they get so much attention.

    Green Tricks (known as Trixies by most florists) are a unique Carnation variety, originally bred in Holland. Now available in all parts of the world - from Israel to Ecuador to Australia - the Green Trick Dianthus is a real show stopper. In fact, in won the 2008 World Flower Show for best novelty flower.

    With an exceptionally long vase life of 2-4 weeks, these little green balls of joy are not only adorable, but versatile too. Admired in contemporary corporate arrangements, especially popular in vase designs, these da

  9. International Women's Day

    International Women's Day

    In the lead up to International Women’s Day on March 8, the team at Pearsons have been sharing stories about the exceptional women in our lives; friends, wives, girlfriends, mothers, grand mothers, aunts, employees and colleagues who have made (or continue to make) selfless contributions to the home, office, school, community and beyond. These are the incredible women whose efforts and sacrifices often go unacknowledged. Even when we say “congratulations” for a win at work or “thank you for going above and beyond your call of duty” on that project, it’s easy to overlook that (on average) these women are still juggling the majority of domestic duties at the same time. Let’s not forget the gender gap when it comes to equal pay either!

    For Bernard, Barbara & Avi Pollak - second and third generation Pearsons Florist owners, managers & designers - International Women’s Day is a time when they devote particular respect to the

    Dahlias

    The shooting stars of the flower kingdom!

    Humans have been captivated by stars — those glittery specks of light across our night sky — for time immemorial. Maybe it’s their perceived connection to the heavens which has given them such holy status. Perhaps this is why they have come to represent excellence & distinction (5 star hotel anyone?)

    In the flower kingdom, blooms from the daisy family hold a similar appeal. This should come as no surprise when you consider their scientific name - Asteraceae - which refers to the star-like form of their inflorescences. Daisies, chrysanthemums and sunflowers are all revered members of the Asteraceae family, but this season, one flower in particular is getting 5 star ratings left right and centre … it’s the Dahlia.

    With their puffy double flowering & multi-layered petals that appear to be dipped, stripped and tipped in an impressive range of colours (such a fuchsia, scarlet, yellow
