Qixi Festival

August 12, 2021 | Flower CareFlowersWinter
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.

Over the last few weeks, our floral cupids have been busy crafting a beautiful Chinese Valentine’s Day range. We have combined the most romantic ingredients - from sweetly scented candles to premium roses - and arranged them into Pearsons signature stylish packages.
