As the holidays approach, we begin to see traditions we hold to crop up everywhere we look. From carols we sing and cookies we bake to how we decorate our homes and businesses, the holiday season brings out traditions that we value. The holly plant is a huge part of that traditional feel. It has been a symbol of Christmas for centuries, but did you know it was also used in winter celebrations during pre-Christian times? Ancient civilizations held holly in high esteem. Here, the floral experts at Gordon Boswell Flowers want to show you why the holly plant, December’s birth “flower,” has made such an impact for some many centuries. We’ll also show you some great ways to include it in your decor this season. Read More about Include the Traditional Symbolism of Holly »

Secret Santa is a popular gift swap in a work setting or amongst a group of friends, and for good reason. The cloak of anonymity on the part of the giver lends a lot of anticipation and just plain fun to the exchange. When everyone finally gets their gifts, it's a riot to try to figure out who gave what to whom. On the other hand, Secret Santa can lead to a lot of gimmicky gift choices, a fate we here at Gordon Boswell would love to help you avoid this year.

It's the most wonderful time of the year . . . for poinsettias!
This winter-blooming plant is all the rage when holiday time hits because of its classic Christmas color palette, true red against perfect green leaves. But this beauty is available in lots of colors, including white, pink and even orange. What makes the red version so coveted when it comes to workplace decor is that most businesses and offices desperately need holiday color but have a lot of open space, too. Clusters of poinsettias cover some of that ground and make a huge impact, all with little effort on the part of you and your colleagues. Read More about Deck the Office Halls with Poinsettias »
