Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!
Autumn is well and truly setting in, with the leaves turning yellow and falling from the trees already! The weather has certainly picked up some autumn traits too, with misty mornings and a chill in the air. But we just love this season and the flower that is our flower of the month is of the same name - September!
The September flower, or Aster as it can be known, is a daisy like flower and comes in a range of colours - pink, white, red and purple. The name is derived from the Greek word for Star and symbolises Love, Faith, Wisdom and Colour.
Congratulations to Shanyu, one of our amazing florists, who recently won two awards at the Southport Flower Show, ahead of some very experienced florists. Shanyu has just been awarded a distinction in her Level 3 Floristry course and then went on to win these two awards in August - a Mediterranean themed Bridal bouquet and a Child's bridesmaid carry-on-arm novelty bouquet. We couldn't be more proud of her and have dedicated one of the windows in our shop to her trophies. Well done Shanyu, we know you're brilliant and now everyone else does too!
Our Early Autumn Bouquet of the Month features the flower of the month - September, also known as Aster. We chose the purple variety combined with lilac roses, green hypericum, pink gerberas and green carnations to give a moving towards an autumn feeling without the full colour turn.
The cost is £35, with your FREE delivery when you order online - so place an order today to take advantage of this special presentation bouquet.
Thank you to Sheila and Dave for a lovely testimonial that they emailed to us:
"We recently got married at the Hope Street Hotel. After being badly let down by another florist, the hotel recommend Booker Flowers. We arranged a meeting with a lovely lady called Pat. We talked about our big day and what we would like. Not only was she helpful, but suggested things we never even thought about, not only knowledgeable and experienced about all aspects of the flowers, she knew the venue which was a great help. The professionalism and excellent service ensured a perfect day for us. Thankyou so much."
