How much do you love your girlfriends? Well enough to have an entire day devoted to celebrating them? We at Gordon Boswell agree, and guess what? There’s a day for that.
The idea for Galentine’s Day was first proposed in a 2010 episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all of her ladies out to a long lunch and gave them gifts the day before Valentine’s Day. She called it “Galentine’s,” and the rest is history. Each year, more and more women are taking the chance to celebrate their friendships on February 13th.
We here at Gordon Boswell welcome 2018, which will be filled with flowers for us, and we’re hoping for you, too. In fact, we have two programs that will help you make sure that your year is abundant with beautiful blooms, and January is the perfect time to get on board with one of them.
If you have something special in mind for your ailing friend or loved one, look no further than flowers. A bright, bountiful bouquet is just the thing when someone is feeling more than the winter blues and needs a good dose of sunshine and cheer. Flowers, studies show, are major mood enhancers, and they also promote a positive outlook. Patients who have flowers or potted plants in their hospital rooms use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure than their flower-less counterparts.
We here at Gordon Boswell have a rich collection of get well flowers designed to perk up anyone suffering during cold and flu season.
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.

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. And by “consideration,” we mean your floral decor for Fall. Fort Worth is teeming with pumpkin patches, festivals and friendly farms celebrating the season, and we know you’re prepping your home for it, too. So do yourself a favor and add the richly complex dahlia to your decorating scheme.
