If you’re hosting a shindig at your place for the 4th of July this year, it’s time to have some fun. Gordon Boswell is going to show you exactly how you can do that in florals, but first, can we take a minute to appreciate the incredible opportunity to decorate we have on this day? We love it when we see patriotic bunting hanging from porches or clusters of sparklers on the table, especially if that table is draped with a red-checkered cloth. Everyone’s in a festive mood, and the decor we dress our homes in should seize on that spirit and reflect it back.
Well, not just any gift basket. We here at Gordon Boswell want to be clear: this June 17, otherwise known as Father’s Day, you’re going to want to give a particular kind of gift basket to the dad (or dads) in your life. Don’t overthink it. Simply imagine what your father or the father in your life would always love to receive, and the answer becomes easy. Straight up goodies. Delectable treats and snacks that can carry him through the game, the soccer practice, the long meetings at work. A basket of dad-centric indulgence that would make anyone of that persuasion happy.
Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those soldiers who died in service to country, the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our nation. It’s also a time to gather with friends and family, attending parades, ceremonies and grave sites. For many of us, that means a visit to Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, a beautiful resting place for our community’s military. We will stroll through the memorial walkway and look out over Mountain Creek Lake, reflecting on the profound service so many of our local heroes gave and continue to give.
Gordon Boswell joins you in honoring our country’s finest this Memorial Day, and we also know that many of you will be gathering with friends and family to celebrate the fallen heroes you called your own. We’ll be hosting backyard barbecues, potluck dinners and more to both commemorate our military connections and to embrace each other at the advent of summer.
It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day is almost here, but it is. And that means it’s time to start thinking about gifts to give our mothers for their special day. The Gordon Boswell team is working hard to come up with a variety of gorgeous and over-the-top flower arrangements that are worthy of a Texas-size and Texas-style Mother’s Day celebration.
Earth Day is an annual celebration throughout the United States on April 22. This year is no exception. With bluebonnets in bloom all over north and central Texas, we’re sort of feeling the spring spirit and getting into the gardening mindset, but we have to admit; it’s really hard to get excited about the warm weather when the temperatures in Texas are as extreme as things are big in our state. If you’re wondering what to do or how to celebrate Earth Day, the Gordon Boswell team is here to give you some inspiration.
On April 24, 2018, the business world observes Administrative Professionals Day, which is part of Administrative Professionals Week. The observance was conceived of by Mary Barrett, a former president of the National Secretaries Association, an organization that was formed during World War II as a way to support receptionists and secretaries. The Gordon Boswell team loves to join in campaigns that honor the unsung heroes whose tireless efforts make our lives better in so many ways.
As Texans, we’re used to experiencing big things, and we’re not strangers to monstrous weather conditions. It’s finally feeling like Spring in our northern part of the Lone Star state, and we see proof of that when we’re out and about because of the patches of blue that dot the landscape. We know it’s spring when bluebonnets bloom. For us, it’s not enough to enjoy the splendor of wildflowers in bloom all over Texas. We feel compelled to bring some of that beauty into our homes and businesses. At Gordon Boswell, we strive to fill our store with a variety of floral tastes of spring so that our customers can fill their homes and workplaces with the warmth and brightness of color, and the freshness of floral scents.
Spring is here. The surest sign that spring is finally here in Texas is the sight of bluebonnets. While we’re basking in delightful temperatures and enjoying cloudless skies, the Northeastern part of the United States is bracing for – or already experiencing another Nor’easter. But all that beautiful weather outside leaves our indoor work and living spaces dreary and empty. Thankfully, Gordon Boswell has a vast array of colorful flower arrangements and potted plants that are ideal for adding a touch of spring to your home or business. Flowers are a nice alternative to the traditional candy baskets that people typically give to others for Easter.
Our talented team of floral designers here at Gordon Boswell are constantly looking ahead to the next creative challenge. When they get the opportunity to customize arrangements, they eagerly accept them, thrilled to work within your specifications or to create something on their own that will blow you away. Every occasion that calls for a custom bouquet is different, but we know that each scenario is filled with emotion, and we try to reflect that emotion in the pieces we craft for you.
This Valentine’s Day, get yourself some roses that go a step beyond the usual in both color and container, and jazz up February 14th for someone special.
We tend to think of our romantic roses in one way only – a dozen long red stems rocketing from a simple vase – but there’s so much more variety in the floral landscape than that. V-Day roses, like so many things, have become modernized, and we here at Gordon Boswell are right in line with that trend.
