Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to enjoy friends and family, eat your favorite traditional holiday foods, and reflect on everything you’re thankful for. If this year is not your turn to host Thanksgiving, and you get to arrive as a guest instead, count yourself blessed, but also realize you still have some responsibility. It’s unacceptable to show up empty-handed, so make sure you have a thoughtful hostess gift in hand when you step into your host’s home. Read More about Give Epic Hostess Gifts this Thanksgiving »

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.

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. Read More about Graceful Gifts for the Host »
In many ways, our Thanksgiving traditions are similar from family to family. It is said that nearly 90% of us will have turkey on the table, and in Fort Worth, nearly everyone will be glued to the set for the football games. Still, each family has their own special ways to celebrate, and each holiday table is a little different. Whatever your Thanksgiving style, Gordon Boswell Florist has the perfect florals for your gathering. From traditional to contemporary centerpieces, giving thanks never looked so beautiful.

This is a favorite time of the year for many people. With the weather cooling off, the landscape changing, and family and friends preparing for the holiday season - autumn is truly a special time. We love the vivid colors of fall - the reds, oranges, and golds are rich and luxurious and give off an inviting air. At Gordon Boswell, we have been decorating Fort Worth homes with the magic of Thanksgiving for nearly 100 years. Read More about Thanksgiving Celebrations and Customs »
