Hello and welcome to a very special Christmas edition of our newsletter. This is a great time to head over to the shop on Booker Avenue as we have a lot going on including our beautiful array of Nordman Pines being sold outside the front.
We will also be selling mistletoe in the run up to Christmas. From the earliest times mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious, and sacred plants of European folklore. It was considered to bestow life and fertility; a protection against poison; and an aphrodisiac.
The mistletoe of the sacred oak was especially sacred to the ancient Celtic Druids. On the sixth night of the moon white-robed Druid priests would cut the oak mistletoe with a golden sickle. Two white bulls would be sacrificed amid prayers that the recipients of the mistletoe would prosper.
Great news! We have been awarded a certificate of excellence by three best rated for being one of the top 3 florists in Liverpool! Three Best Rated was created to find you the top three local businesses per category in your city, we are very happy to be on the list.
We adore the way this sumptuous bouquet in scarlet and white is the perfect match with Santa's traditional outfit. And we've added a sprinkling of glitter and copper and gold highlights for extra seasonal sparkle too. This stylish gift will get everyone in the festive mood!
It is FREE delivery if you order online - so don't delay order today.
It is that time of year again and our highly sought after Noordman Pine Christmas trees and wreaths are in. Remember we only sell Top quality Grade A low drop Noordman Pines, this means we only get the best shaped ones and though they may cost a touch more they are definitely worth it.
We also have a large range of fresh door wreath and grave posies for you to choose from.
We also have a fantastic range of Christmas decorations in the Christmas Section on the Booker Gifts website. We are also going to be opening up the shop on Sundays from 10-4 during the Christmas period.

Christmas Floral Demo
On the 25th we did our annual Christmas demo this year was in aid of the Charity 'R' – specifically for the new Breast unit at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital.
The hospital will open in 2017 and part of this will be a state of the art breast unit. This will feature 3 new mammography units, including 2 with the latest tomosynthesis technology – a welcome first for our region. We are delighted to say we managed to raise £190 and are very happy that we could contribute to such a worthwhile cause and service for the city of Liverpool.
