A Flower Shop Named After a Shakespearean Character - Calgary - Canada‘s Podcast

A Flower Shop Named After a Shakespearean Character - Calgary - Canada‘s Podcast

October 8, 2021

Marika Styba is the Owner of Peaseblossoms, which opened its doors in 1995 with a unique name based on the work of playwright William Shakespeare.

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 Styba loves about her shop and she thinks the name suits them to a 't'. The small flower shop has seen steady business in the past year even during the pandemic as people continue to want connections with others through the beauty of flowers.
