1 week to go until Valentine's Day! February 2017 Edition of the Booker Flowers and Gifts Newsletter
Don't forget Valentine's - pre-order today!
Just 1 week to go until Valentine's Day!
We know how easy it is to forget, so we thought that this month we would send our Newsletter a little early so that you have plenty of time to pre-order your Valentine's bouquets with us! We have so many to offer this year, with the added selection of balloons, champagne, chocolates and wine to go with orders, or to send a lovely selection box of all of them. Take a look at our Valentine's flowers here.
FLOWER OF THE MONTH
Alstroemeria are the flowers of the month for February and they are all about Love, but this time instead of romantic love, they are a symbol of the love you feel for your friendships. They originate from the Andes and are also known as the Inca Lily. They have a lovely long vase life if you look after them and this is why they symbolise enduring friendship. Each petal stands for something different that you respect in your friendship - understanding, humour, patience, empathy, commitment and respect. If you don't want to send a romantic bouquet, but want to mark a special friend instead, take a look at our Bouquet of the Month instead.

The beautiful spring colours of yellow, pinks, whites and purples make you feel happy inside knowing warmer months are ahead. The long lasting Alstroemeria start off as inconspicuous tight buds and opens out into a beautiful colourful trumpet.
In this example of Spring flowers we have mixed Alstroemeria with Carnations, Chrysanthemum, Gerberas, Statice, Roses and greenery. Our flowers are guaranteed to last for 7 days, but this combination should last a lot longer

"Booker Flowers and Gifts provided our flowers for our winter, woodland themed wedding at the end of last year. We were thrilled with the flowers and the service provided. We wanted something a bit "different" and asked for a twiggy, winter look with succulents and some copper sprayed cones and some copper wire running through everything. They delivered exactly what we wanted!"
We're so glad you liked them Jessica - thank you for the lovely photos you have allowed us to share.
