get well flowers

When someone we love is under the weather, we definitely want to cheer them up. Studies have shown that receiving flowers has an instant effect on our well-being and happiness, making floral bouquets a perfect choice to send to someone who is ill. Whether your friend or family member is in the hospital or sick at home, choosing beautiful plants and flowers from Gordon Boswell Flowers is a guaranteed way to make them smile.

Which flowers are right to send? If your loved one is at home, virtually any florals are appropriate, but you may wish to ask the experts as to which blooms have the least scent.

They are not only low fragrance but are cheerful and easy to care for.  Continue reading

It’s no secret that we love flowers. But more than that, the professionals at Gordon Boswell are passionate about floral design – arranging beautiful florals and unique accents to create true works of art. We turn ordinary bouquets into extraordinary displays. When celebrating special people and special occasions in Fort Worth, don’t settle for anything less than spectacular.

Creative design often incorporates wild accents and natural details to add depth, texture, and aesthetic interest. Curly willow, fall foliage, varied greens, and berries are examples of these details; even more exotic are purple kale and cabbage leaves, artichokes, and fruits and gourds. These elements draw their inspiration from the abundance of nature and from the essence of the seasonal harvest.

Roses and hydrangea are elevated with many of these details in our beautiful Autumn’s Glory arrangement, perfect for your fall dinner table.

Succulents are a popular accent, as they provide exotic geometric shape and texture. Succulents are often relegated to desert or wildflower arrangements., but actually add surprising beauty to sophisticated flowers such as roses and orchids as well.

This unexpected pairing of bright blue orchids and succulents may be our favorite creative design. When the rare and luxurious orchid is presented with the hardy and resilient succulent, the result is captivating. This is design at it’s best – the application of artistry to create something truly unique and special.
