  2. Qixi Festival

    Qixi Festival

    Wednesday 7th August 2019

    Florists LOVE romance! And what could be more romantic than the story behind Chinese Valentine's Day, the Qixi Festival. The tale is a love story between Zhinu (the weaver girl, symbolised by the star Vega) and Niulang (the cowherd, symbolised by Altair). Their love was forbidden, and so they were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (symbolised by the the Milky Way). Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies forms a bridge to reunite the lovers for one day. SIGH!!! Such a lovely story. Read more...

    Captivated by Moonlight!

    Humans have been captivated by the moon — that glittery orb of light across our night sky — for time immemorial. Maybe it’s our perceived connection to the heavens which has given it such reverent status? Perhaps it is just it's beautiful white glow? This week during the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing it is our divine inspiration! Read more...

    Winter Flowers, to keep Sydney smiling!

    Winter isn’t exactly our favourite season here in Sydney; our active inhabitants start to grieve the absence of summer the moment we sense the first hint of autumn coolness!

    By July, the cold has well and truly set in. Sydney-siders can be spotted on coastal walks all over town, lamenting “What can we do this winter to bring the outside in?”

    Here at Pearsons Florist, we are so lucky to spend our entire year surrounded by a wide range of beautiful flowers. So what blooms will keep us smiling through the colder months. Ready to be inspired? Here’s a list of our favourites!

    Cymbidium Orchids are a stunning addition to almost any wintery arrangement and look fantastic with traditional flowers and wildflowers, but are especially elegant on their own with twigs and foliage.

    Tulips are a perfect winter bloom – they love the cold!!

  7. Tulips

    Tulips

    What do Antique Serapi Carpets, Saffron Ice-Cream & Tulips have in common?

    They are all absolute heaven to the senses AND share Persian ancestry.

    While the team at Pearsons Florist do have a great eye for interiors and a keen taste for exotic ice-cream flavours (do you blame us?), flowers are our speciality! So allow us to tempt and tantalise with a trip down the Royal Road to Tulip Paradise.

    Your journey begins in the Persian & Ottoman Empires where it is believed the Kingdoms’ most captivated poets endowed the Tulip with its name due to its resemblance to a Turban (Tülbend meaning muslin or gauze in Turkish). Illustrations also reveal early fashionistas wearing tulips on their Turbans.

    Jump to 16th Century Europe where the tulips made their debut and have been charming the trendsetters on The Continent ever since. With most Tulip species producing a single, goblet shaped flower with 6 waxy petals, some distinctiv

    Cymbidium Orchids in Winter

    Cymbidium Orchid, making Sydney smile again.

    Winter isn’t exactly held in high esteem here in Sydney; a city whose glamorous inhabitants start to grieve the absence of Summer the moment they sense the first autumn chill (while dining alfresco by the harbour or on the beach).

    By May, the panic has well and truly set in. Sydney-siders can be spotted on coastal walks all over town, lamenting, “What joys can Winter possibly bring?”

    Here at Pearsons Florist, we feel blessed to spend our entire year surrounded by so many beautiful species of flowers. And one bloom in particular, is sure to keep Sydney smiling through the colder months. Ready to be inspired? Enter the Cymbidium Orchid.

    With a winter palette to remind our sun-worshipers of their favourite frosty pleasures. From golden yellows to oranges (like a steamy bowl of Pumpkin Soup) to reds (like the glow from a fireplace) to burgundy (like a glass of mulled wine) to earthy browns (li
