What’s the best way to keep spirits up this winter season? Flowers, that’s how.
We here at Gordon Boswell aren’t kidding around; studies show that flowers have the ability to lift the mood, increase mental clarity and contribute overall to a person’s outlook. And during winter, when the days are short and the nights long (and seasonal affective disorder a real concern), flowers can be a wonderful way to combat the winter blues. There are many reasons to introduce them into your home during the colder months.
If you appreciate getting ahead of a good design trend, like we do here at Gordon Boswell, read on.
As we look forward to 2018, International Floral Distributors gives us one more thing to get excited about with their annual floral design trend report. This year’s capture includes a variety of styles, but we’re highlighting one in this week’s blog. We love “Magnificent Mediterranean” for its rich tones of orange, gold and blue, meant to invoke the Mediterranean landscape.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, it’s time to start dressing that table – and we don’t mean with food. Among the heritage linens and heirloom china, another classic bit of decor awaits its moment in the spotlight: a floral centerpiece.
Whether you go grand and lavish or sweet and simple, your Thanksgiving table’s centerpiece reflects the mood you want to set. Flowers put at the heart of a table are meant to be looked at, remarked over and enjoyed for the rest of the meal. They have to be of a scale that conversation can easily happen over them; visually arresting but not too distracting. In short, centerpieces are major players in our experience of Thanksgiving.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving?
Your answer may fall somewhere between “not remotely” and “absolutely,” and if so, you wouldn’t be alone. There is so much planning, preparing and execution to be done if you’re hosting Turkey Day in your home that it’s tough to feel completely prepared. But what if you’ve been graciously invited into someone else’s home for the big day? If that’s the case, we here at Gordon Boswell Flowers encourage you to remember one of your most important duties as a Thanksgiving guest: the host gift.
Oh, dahlias. Is there a more delightful (and more on trend) flower? We at Gordon Boswell know the field is crowded with candidates, but we humbly submit our dazzlers for your consideration.

So do yourself a favor and add the richly complex dahlia to your decorating scheme.
