Qixi Festival

August 7, 2020 | 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. We offer a classic rose box featuring one or two dozen of the most delectable red roses in our signature box with gentle fronds of foliage. Or, you can go for one of our lavish packages with premium long stemmed roses in a ceramic vase. However you choose to show your true love you can be sure our dedicated floral couriers can deliver to any suburb in Sydney.
