On the Fourth of July, we tend to think of the freedom and independence we enjoy as Americans. We also don’t want to forget the individuals who make these freedoms possible. So, if you know anyone in the military, be sure to honor them on the Fourth of July and thank them for their service. For example, a great way to do this is with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Gordon Boswell Flowers. Our patriotic blooms are second to none. So, we know we can help you find the perfect design to display in your home, at your Fourth of July celebration or to send to your favorite military service person.

Bees, as a species, are on the decline and numbers are beginning to drop into the endangered category. Attracting bees to your garden or yard is an important way to participate in boosting the declining bee population, which will allow them to continue to do the work they were designed to do- pollinating crops that make up 90% of the world’s food resources. By bringing brightly colored flowers (think of sunflowers and lavender) to your garden, you will offer a safe environment for bees to live. If gardening isn’t your thing, or you simply don’t have the space for a garden, the floral specialists at Gordon Boswell Flowers recommend including some bee-friendly flowers and plants on your outdoor porch or patio.

What makes a summertime soiree so special? We here at Gordon Boswell will let you in on a little secret: it's all about what's on the table.
And no, we don't just mean the gorgeous platter of salmon accented by lemon wedges and rosemary sprigs. Or the glistening dish of ceviche. We're not even talking about the sangria you'll pour from a crystal pitcher pulled out just for this occasion, or the meringue you've got waiting in the wings for dessert. We're talking about the flowers. Summer is peak season for easy and elegant gatherings that transition from indoors to out. Moonlight, candelight and plenty of luscious fresh food are key elements of a spectacular seasonal party. Many flowers are also at their peak during this season, and make the perfect pairing with your fiesta. Read More about Pair Thee Well This Summer »
