Floral Design Day – Meet The Designers

Floral Design Day was originally imagined as a unique way to celebrate the birthday of Carl Rittner, the founder of the Rittners School of Floral Design in Boston. Recognized as both a visionary and pioneer in floral art education, Rittner helped to elevate floral design to an art form.  In 1995, Governor William F. Weld of Massachusetts, proclaimed this day as Floral Design Day, and this month we celebrate the artistic professionals who make gorgeous flowers a part of our everyday life.

Get Well Flowers, Plants and Gifts

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. If someone is not feeling well, an overwhelming fragrance may be offensive, so stay away from highly aromatic flowers - instead, choose gerbera daisies, tulips or sunflowers. They are not only low fragrance but are cheerful and easy to care for.  Read More about Get Well Flowers, Plants and Gifts »
