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.
While it’s very hard to narrow it down to some of Gordon Boswell’s favorite things during this time of year, we’ve done it. See our very best seasonal blooms, arrangements and more in our Holiday Gift Guide, a real one-stop shop in that you can find something for anyone in its pages – we promise.
One of our most beloved lines, Coton Colors, makes a spectacular gift for the holidays. Once filled to the brim with bright winter blooms and arranged with a touch of whimsy, these distinctive floral containers become the gift that keeps on giving.
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.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, it’s time to start dressing that table – and we don’t mean with food. Among the heritage linens and heirloom china, another classic bit of decor awaits its moment in the spotlight: a floral centerpiece.
Whether you go grand and lavish or sweet and simple, your Thanksgiving table’s centerpiece reflects the mood you want to set. Flowers put at the heart of a table are meant to be looked at, remarked over and enjoyed for the rest of the meal. They have to be of a scale that conversation can easily happen over them; visually arresting but not too distracting. In short, centerpieces are major players in our experience of Thanksgiving.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving?
Your answer may fall somewhere between “not remotely” and “absolutely,” and if so, you wouldn’t be alone. There is so much planning, preparing and execution to be done if you’re hosting Turkey Day in your home that it’s tough to feel completely prepared. But what if you’ve been graciously invited into someone else’s home for the big day? If that’s the case, we here at Gordon Boswell Flowers encourage you to remember one of your most important duties as a Thanksgiving guest: the host gift.
Veterans Day is an especially important day here in Fort Worth because we have so many brave former U.S. military in our community, among them survivors of Pearl Harbor and others who served in WWII. We have many to honor and to thank, which is why Fort Worth’s parades and observations are so important to attend.
Put down the Styrofoam gravestones and the bags of spiderweb: it’s time to take a new approach to Halloween decorating. Instead of gloom-and-dooming up your house, imagine a Halloween interior that feels festive, modern and stylish and yet still celebrates the most macabre of holidays. Decorate with boo-tiful Halloween flowers, which we at Gordon Boswell are offering in a variety of elegant arrangements.
