    Father's Day

    Dad.

    Generous. Dependable. And a little less predictable than we give him credit for! After years of watching him tinkering with this tools, we’ve started to see him playing dolls with the little ones instead … His Sunday cycles with the gents are sometimes replaced with “salutes to the sun” with Mum – Suddenly, the man who used to sit at the kitchen bench in his daggy tracksuit from the 80s, instant coffee in one hand (and vegemite on white in the other) prefers a trip to the local café, for a soy latte and slice of sourdough, donning his slim chinos – which he bought online! That’s right, the Fathers of Sydney are finally moving with the times , embracing their sensitive side, discovering a sense of style. Or ONE of the above, at the very least.

    To celebrate, Pearsons Florist has JOINED THE EVOLUTION and just in time for Fathers Day too.

    So you can thank Dad for all of his support while

    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!!

    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 distinctive

    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 encompass

  8. 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) -

    "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 darlings

    Valentine's Day - SAY IT WITH ROSES!

    When you can’t find a seamless way to say “I know it’s only been a few months, but I’ve got a really good feeling about this and I’m pretty sure I’m falling for you”

    Say it with roses

    When “For some reason I find you the most adorable in the morning, especially when your hair is a mess” just doesn’t strike the right romantic chord,

    Say it with roses

    When “Even after all these years, nobody makes me laugh the way you do when you sing off key” isn’t sensitive enough, “I’m sorry I don’t tell you I love as much as you’d like” just won’t cut it, When “Thank you for putting up with me” is too self-deprecating, “You’re sexy when you get angry” is too saucy, “You’re top notch” lacks poetic flair but “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” just isn’t you …

    Say it with roses

    When “Be my valentine” sounds too cliché and “Be my sweethe
