Make It The Sweetest Of Days

Originating in Cleveland in 1922, Sweetest Day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee who wanted to bless orphans and shut-ins by distributing candy and treats to them. Even in the midst of the Great Depression, Kingston was able to bring happiness to people whom society had forgotten. Today, Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October with gifts of flowers and candy for loved ones, sweethearts and close friends as well as those in hospitals or shelters. Gordon Boswell Flowers has everything you need to gift those around you with the sweetest treats for Sweetest Day. Read More about Make It The Sweetest Of Days »

Self Care In The Form Of Gorgeous Plants

With the notion of self-care comes the idea that we must invest oodles of time, money and energy into something that only benefits ourselves. In reality small, simple changes can make a big difference in your own life and in the lives of those around you. When you care for yourself, you become better at caring for others, too. Finding balance, energy and peace can be achieved in many ways- eating healthy, exercising, meditation and rest, and even surrounding yourself with samples of nature are great ways to care for yourself. Gordon Boswell, the go-to Fort Worth flower shop, has beautiful arrangements of plants and flowers alike that will nurture your soul and help you find wellness.

Gordon Boswell designs sentimental pieces that will help you show reverence during the loss of a loved one. Read More about The Flowers That Speak For Us »

White Flowers All Year Long

Using white as part of your decorating scheme no longer needs to have a stigma revolving around Labor Day. In days gone by, this was the cut-off for wearing or decorating with white at all. White was used in the summer due to the heat, and starting with Labor Day, white had to move over for the burnt oranges, forest greens and chocolates of fall. Now that we have climate-controlled homes, and fall or winter textures can come in any shade, white can be a staple in any season. Gordon Boswell encourages you to experiment with white this fall and see what sort of delightful looks you discover. Read More about White Flowers All Year Long »

Get Some Bee-Friendly Flowers

Bees, as a species, are on the decline and numbers are beginning to drop into the endangered category. Attracting bees to your garden or yard is an important way to participate in boosting the declining bee population, which will allow them to continue to do the work they were designed to do- pollinating crops that make up 90% of the world’s food resources. By bringing brightly colored flowers (think of sunflowers and lavender) to your garden, you will offer a safe environment for bees to live. If gardening isn’t your thing, or you simply don’t have the space for a garden, the floral specialists at Gordon Boswell Flowers recommend including some bee-friendly flowers and plants on your outdoor porch or patio.
