Now that you’re able to unwind from all of the preparations involved in a Texas-size Thanksgiving feast, it’s time to put on your thinking cap and start to gear up for Christmas decorating. We all know how much bigger everything is in Texas, so your Christmas decor, whether inside or outside your home, shouldn’t be any different. You can count on our floral design team here at Gordon Boswell to help you create lasting memories with this year’s holiday decorating – no matter where you do it.
Don’t Forget About Hanukkah
This year, Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 6. It ends at sundown on December 14th. The Menorah is the focal point of Hanukkah celebrations, but most people don’t put it in the center of their tables. You let the candles burn until they burn themselves out. With the Menorah serving as the focal point of this holiday’s celebrations, you want to provide holiday decor in other places throughout your home.
Blue and white are traditional colors associated with Hanukkah. Our Hanukkah Favorite is a beautiful tribute to this Festival of Lights. It consists of blue delphinium, white larkspur and white lilies. We add some feathery greenery to provide texture and contrast. Perfect for a mantel, console table behind a sofa, or a console table in the foyer of your home.
Gingerbread House Cookie Jar
We love the idea of using unusual or unexpected objects as vessels for flower arrangements. Our Cookie Jar is a perfect example of this. We chose a delightful gingerbread house cookie jar to be the container for a flower arrangement that consists of different types of greenery, including pine boughs, fir sprigs, red berries, white berries and red and white flowers. The keepsake gingerbread house cookie jar will bring you and your family many years of lasting memories.
The Amaryllis – A Christmas Classic
Although the name comes from the Greek, this beautiful blooming bulb has come to be associated with Christmas. Add some attractive color and a touch of exoticism to any office, spare room, or just about any space in your home or workplace. An amaryllis is a delight to the eyes, as you watch the fast rate at which the stems emerge and the flowers open. Each stem produces many luxurious looking beautiful flowers.
Don’t wait to start decorating your home or office for the holidays. When you want to do it on a grand scale, like we Texans do with everything, you need to start very early so you can do it a bit at a time. Happy Holidays from the Gordon Boswell Family to you and yours.
