This months featured bouquet is the Vibrant Hand-Tied and is a very colourful and varied bouquet as we continue with the autumnal theme. Someone is going to love this gift. The kaleidoscope of radiant colour ensures this striking hand-tied takes centre stage right away. With roses, lilies, carnations, chrysanthemums and so much more, this is certainly the right choice of gift to make an impression.
It's that time of year again where the nights begin to draw in and the trees give us a beautiful display of reds, yellows and oranges before losing all of their leaves and surrendering to the winter.
We love this time of year, the trees and plants become so colourful and varied and this is reflected in our hand-tied bouquets. The past few weeks have been very busy which included a great week displaying our products over at the 'This is Summer' festival in the Exchange Flags.

Fragrance lamps do much more than simply making a room smell nice through scented oils. They purify the air by eliminating bothersome bacteria and germs which leads to an increase in oxygen levels. Fragrance lamps were initially developed for hospital use in the early 20th century to clean the air and spread the fragrance evenly and quickly around the room. Using a fragrance lamp is a far more efficient way to freshen the air and have it smelling nice.
'I wasn't sure what I wanted or what I could have with our budget. Gemma was fantastic. She had lots of ideas and was very creative. My bouquet was white roses and blue hydrangeas: it was perfect. The bridesmaids and flower girls bouquets were also beautiful. Everything was well coordinated. She provided flowers to decorate both the church and the venue. She additionally set them up and decorated the tables at the venue. She made the tables even more beautiful than I had imagined. The mothers' bouquets for thank yous topped off the floral display! With the beautiful arrangements together with the personalised service and help she gave on our wedding day I cannot recommend highly enough.'
As you can see it is a very exciting period for us at Booker Flowers and Gifts with lots happening and plenty of new stock so be sure to check out our websites for some fantastic products and great deals.
