Over the course of the past few months, Petals Plus has been undergoing a makeover! We’ve got new business cards, new aprons, new colours on the wall, and more!
There are more changes coming, but don’t worry, the quality and the staff that you know and love are still here.
We learn something new everyday…!
On the seventh day of the seventh month on the Lunar Calendar, the Qixi Festival (Double Seventh, or Chinese Valentine’s) is celebrated in China. Inspired by the traditional mythology of the Weaver Girl and the Cowherd, modern festivities include gift-giving for young couples, somewhat akin to Western Valentine’s Day.
This year, the Festival falls on August 2nd of the Western Calendar. We’ve had a number of young men buying roses and other flowers for this weekend, which is what prompted us to research this occasion! Read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qixi_Festival
