Striking fall florals in vivid reds, yellow and oranges are a logical starting place – and arranging them in a keepsake pumpkin makes for the perfect centerpiece or embellishment for your desk at the office. Bright autumn hues and themes warm up any space and remind everyone in the room of the magical fun heading our way by the end of the month. Lilies, roses, carnations, and daisies provide the beauty – while leaves, cattails, and wheat provide the accents.  The pumpkin can be used for years to come to display candy (or maybe stash away your favorites so no one else can find them).  If your style is a bit more sophisticated, we have  you covered as well. You may prefer decor for Halloween that will add class and elegance while still displaying the colors of the season.

Bi-colored roses, gerbera daisies, and Asiatic lilies luxuriously display the seasonal orange in a decorative flaredHalloween decor glass vase. You’ll be bewitched by this charming arrangement – it’s all treat with no trick, and makes a wonderful gift for fall.

But if you know someone who misses the days of neighborhood candy collecting, we can help you out as well. Deliver a Halloween bucket full of delicious candy directly to their front door and remember all the fun times when you were kids.

Start the holiday season off in beautiful style with Halloween decor from Gordon Boswell Florist. From colorful flowers to candy to share, we ‘ll help you enjoy the best this season has to offer.

 

Super-Size Your Halloween Greetings – Texas Style

halloweenIt’s no secret that folks in Texas never shy away from letting others know that EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas. The Gordon Boswell team couldn’t agree more, and we’re honoring that tradition through our Halloween floral arrangements and sweet and savory treats.

 

We’re excited about helping our Fort Worth customers share Halloween greetings with their friends, neighbors, family members and coworkers. We’re equally eager to help you spread some Halloween cheer to people who live far away.

 

How Did Halloween Begin?

 

We naturally assume that Halloween is one of those American traditions that’s as patriotic as apple pie. Have you ever stopped to think about how Halloween came about in the first place? We believe that this fascinating story is worth sharing.

 

Halloween is an observance that evolved from several Ancient Pagan and Roman celebrations. It’s widely believed the holiday we refer to as Halloween actually began with a Celtic Pagan harvest and New Year celebration called Samhain. It combines elements of an Ancient Roman tradition that celebrated the Roman Goddess Pomona, who oversaw fruit and trees.

 

After the fall of the Roman Empire, Christianity spread throughout Europe and eventually came to England. In England, church leaders took over many Pagan traditions and celebrations because they thought it was easier to appropriate them than ban them. They blended them with Christian holidays, feast days and observances as they saw fit.

 

Samhain fit perfectly into the Church Calendar because November 1 of every year is the celebration of the Feast of All Saints. The next day, November 2 is observed as All Souls’ Day. It made perfect sense to transform Samhain into All Hallows’ Eve. That term eventually turned into a simpler Halloween.

 

For those of you who aren’t sure about appropriate gifts for Halloween, we’ve come up with two ideas to inspire you.
