Flowers have always been the #1 gift for Mother’s Day, and for good reason. Throughout the centuries, flowers have taken on meanings far beyond just their beauty, and represented sentiments such as love, gratitude, and wisdom. If your Mom has been a guiding force in your life, always there for you and always full of love, Gordon Boswell has the floral designs that will let her know how much you appreciate her. There is an arrangement for every mom and every personality. May 14 is Mother’s Day, and we can’t wait to honor our moms!
Statistics tell us that there are over 85 million moms in the United States. Which one is the world’s best mother? The one you call Mom, of course! On May 14, we give Mom all of the love and admiration that she deserves. There will be many gifts given on that day, but none are more classic or traditional than the gift of flowers. People have been honoring the matriarchs of the family with flowers since ancient times, but it wasn’t until 1908 that Mother’s Day was formally introduced in the United States as an official holiday.
Gordon Boswell has been helping Fort Wort residents celebrate their moms for nearly 100 years, and we have the perfect flowers to say “I love you” on this special day. Continue reading
