We are frequently asked what a peaseblossom is and we are always happy to reply! Peaseblossom was an attending flower fairy to Titania the fairy queen in William Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. As time wore on, by the Victorian Era, a peaseblossom became synonymous with simply being a flower fairy. Sweet, charming and whimsical are all traits we love about our shop and we think our name suits us to a 't'.
