As you think about decorating your home this season for the holidays, don’t forget about your home office! This space is where you spend much of your time, so re-invigorate and refresh your workspace with a beautiful floral or plant design. Adding fresh greenery is known to improve productivity and any amount of decorating will absolutely add holiday cheer to your home office this year. Take a look at the beautiful collection of holiday wreaths, plant designs and floral bouquets created by the artisans at Gordon Boswell Flowers just for you this season.
Thanksgiving is a time to stop and reflect on who and what you are most thankful for in life. At Gordon Boswell Flowers, we are most thankful for our incredible team without whom we could not create and deliver the most beautiful flowers to you and our community. Our growers and farmers, our dedicated sales staff, our artistic designers and our professional delivery drivers all work hard to make sure we deliver the highest quality with a smile. We are grateful for each and every member of our team.
This year, instead of letting the stress of creating the perfect Thanksgiving feast take you away from the true meaning of the holiday, try refreshing your meal with a twist on tradition. Invite guests to join you for an international-themed Thanksgiving meal. Go potluck or feature dishes from your favorite cultures. A Mediterranean buffet or Japanese theme can bring out the creativity in everyone. Or simply invite guests to join you for a dessert-only Thanksgiving (who’s not thankful for dessert?). Dress your table with traditional Thanksgiving linens, china and stemware, featuring a lovely centerpiece from the collection at Gordon Boswell Flowers for a simple way to tie your non-traditional feast to the nostalgia of the holiday.
Send a spooky treat that’s sure to delight your favorite witches, ghosts and ghouls this Halloween with a fantastic, holiday-inspired floral arrangement. Let loved ones know they’re on your mind and in your heart this Halloween when a gorgeous bouquet arrives from you. The amazing designers at Gordon Boswell Flowers have created some fabulous fall and Halloween designs that embody the spirit of this holiday with stunning autumn colors and textures.
Originating in Cleveland in 1922, Sweetest Day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee who wanted to bless orphans and shut-ins by distributing candy and treats to them. Even in the midst of the Great Depression, Kingston was able to bring happiness to people whom society had forgotten. Today, Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October with gifts of flowers and candy for loved ones, sweethearts and close friends as well as those in hospitals or shelters. Gordon Boswell Flowers has everything you need to gift those around you with the sweetest treats for Sweetest Day.
When you think about the bonds created between your own parents and your children, the magnitude of this connection is beyond comprehension. Bridging generations, grandparents and grandchildren share a special and unique relationship. We get to celebrate this every autumn on Grandparents Day, the second Sunday of September. The floral designers at Gordon Boswell have created some amazing arrangements for your child to bring or send to their favorite grandparent this Grandparents Day.
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.
