Thanksgiving is a time to stop and reflect on who and what you are most thankful for in life. At Gordon Boswell Flowers, we are most thankful for our incredible team without whom we could not create and deliver the most beautiful flowers to you and our community. Our growers and farmers, our dedicated sales staff, our artistic designers and our professional delivery drivers all work hard to make sure we deliver the highest quality with a smile. We are grateful for each and every member of our team.
This year, instead of letting the stress of creating the perfect Thanksgiving feast take you away from the true meaning of the holiday, try refreshing your meal with a twist on tradition. Invite guests to join you for an international-themed Thanksgiving meal. Go potluck or feature dishes from your favorite cultures. A Mediterranean buffet or Japanese theme can bring out the creativity in everyone. Or simply invite guests to join you for a dessert-only Thanksgiving (who’s not thankful for dessert?). Dress your table with traditional Thanksgiving linens, china and stemware, featuring a lovely centerpiece from the collection at Gordon Boswell Flowers for a simple way to tie your non-traditional feast to the nostalgia of the holiday.
Autumn has arrived and with it, the prospect of entertaining guests and loved ones throughout the season. The floral artisans at Gordon Boswell Flowers have put together some gorgeous centerpieces as well as some great tips for creating your best tablescape ever this season.
- Along with gorgeous stemware and linens, personalize each table setting with a flower just for that guest. Bonus points for choosing flowers that match one of the blooms in your table’s centerpiece.
- While neutrals are arguably classic and easily dressed up, the fall holidays are a great time to go all out. Break out the bold colors and bright autumn hues for a festive appearance and warm, inviting vibe.
- Incorporate elements from nature throughout your table. Succulents make beautiful accent pieces to a bold autumnal centerpiece.
A beautiful autumn decor in your home or office this season is as simple as expecting the unexpected. Bring unique colors, shapes and designs into focus that blend beautifully with seasonal favorites for a stunning look like you’ve never seen. The design professionals at Gordon Boswell Flowers have some great ideas for adding a little something extra to your decor this season.
- Try mixing textures and fragrances for a delightfully fresh look and aroma in your home. Cinnamon sticks in a gorgeous floral arrangement, apples carved into candle votives, and clove-pierced oranges as a centerpiece all evoke the fragrances of fall while creating a stunning visual effect.
- Give you autumn color palette an update by grouping like shades together for a modern, stylish monochromatic look. An all-rust centerpiece or a fully-burgundy mantle will shine brightly and highlight the multiple textures found in your display.
Send a spooky treat that’s sure to delight your favorite witches, ghosts and ghouls this Halloween with a fantastic, holiday-inspired floral arrangement.

Originating in Cleveland in 1922, Sweetest Day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee who wanted to bless orphans and shut-ins by distributing candy and treats to them. Even in the midst of the Great Depression, Kingston was able to bring happiness to people whom society had forgotten. Today, Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October with gifts of flowers and candy for loved ones, sweethearts and close friends as well as those in hospitals or shelters. Gordon Boswell Flowers has everything you need to gift those around you with the sweetest treats for Sweetest Day.
Every autumn, we have the opportunity to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. This month-long festival pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. Many national institutions participate in this rich, relevant observance by sharing information, education and stories of the enduring contributions of Latinos to our history and culture. Gordon Boswell Flowers is excited to participate by introducing our collection of designs featuring blooms from Latin American countries.
Bring the bold, refreshing colors of fall into your home this season with a bright, jewel-toned floral arrangement that steps outside of the typical harvest hues often seen in autumn. These brilliant colors can compliment any decor and will dazzle the eye. Jewel-tones set a mood better than any other palette and will be a quick and fantastic update to your home’s decor. The floral experts at Gordon Boswell Flowers are eager to share our collection of jewel-toned arrangements with you.
As autumn approaches we shift our entertaining focus to items centered around harvest delights and fall flavors. Add a bit of unique flavor to your next get-together by infusing your drinks or meal with edible flowers. The freshness will take on a whole new meaning, especially when paired with one of Gordon Boswell Flowers’ stunning bouquets.
With the notion of self-care comes the idea that we must invest oodles of time, money and energy into something that only benefits ourselves. In reality small, simple changes can make a big difference in your own life and in the lives of those around you. When you care for yourself, you become better at caring for others, too. Finding balance, energy and peace can be achieved in many ways- eating healthy, exercising, meditation and rest, and even surrounding yourself with samples of nature are great ways to care for yourself. Gordon Boswell, the go-to Fort Worth flower shop, has beautiful arrangements of plants and flowers alike that will nurture your soul and help you find wellness.
