The first week of May is packed with celebrations that recognize professionals. Following a week of honoring nurses, we celebrate National Nurses’ Day on May 12th, the birthdate of Florence Nightengale. Teacher Appreciation Week takes place between May 7th, and May 11th, with the day devoted to showing appreciation for teachers falling on May 8th. Flowers are a customary gift to give to these people as a symbol of your gratitude, respect, and appreciation. Gordon Boswell is proud to participate in events that pay homage to two critical groups of unsung heroes in our community.
Earth Day is an annual celebration throughout the United States on April 22. This year is no exception. With bluebonnets in bloom all over north and central Texas, we’re sort of feeling the spring spirit and getting into the gardening mindset, but we have to admit; it’s really hard to get excited about the warm weather when the temperatures in Texas are as extreme as things are big in our state. If you’re wondering what to do or how to celebrate Earth Day, the Gordon Boswell team is here to give you some inspiration.
On April 24, 2018, the business world observes Administrative Professionals Day, which is part of Administrative Professionals Week. The observance was conceived of by Mary Barrett, a former president of the National Secretaries Association, an organization that was formed during World War II as a way to support receptionists and secretaries. The Gordon Boswell team loves to join in campaigns that honor the unsung heroes whose tireless efforts make our lives better in so many ways.
As Texans, we’re used to experiencing big things, and we’re not strangers to monstrous weather conditions. It’s finally feeling like Spring in our northern part of the Lone Star state, and we see proof of that when we’re out and about because of the patches of blue that dot the landscape. We know it’s spring when bluebonnets bloom. For us, it’s not enough to enjoy the splendor of wildflowers in bloom all over Texas. We feel compelled to bring some of that beauty into our homes and businesses. At Gordon Boswell, we strive to fill our store with a variety of floral tastes of spring so that our customers can fill their homes and workplaces with the warmth and brightness of color, and the freshness of floral scents.
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.
Most Texans are undoubtedly fed up with winter weather. We certainly are, and even though we’re now on Daylight’s Savings, you never know what type of severe weather Mother Nature will unleash on North Texas before the temperatures finally warm up enough for us to enjoy vistas of bluebonnets and other wildflowers as they bloom in sequence. Luckily, people in the Fort Worth area can count on Gordon Boswell to entice their eyes and noses with beautiful flowers and great smells.
Extreme weather is nothing new to North Texas, and the Fort Worth area knows that all too well. But one of the best things about spring in Texas, and not just the Fort Worth area, is the abundance of wildflowers that sprout up everywhere. That’s no exaggeration, either. Our Gordon Boswell customers may get to enjoy an abundance of wildflowers as they bloom in sequence anywhere all over Texas, but those small flowers aren’t suited to cutting.
On March 8, cities, countries, states, counties, and women’s groups will observe International Women’s Day. It is an international campaign that started in the early 1900s when Suffragettes began their fight to gain the right to vote. The first observance took place in 1911, and now, 107 years later, the theme of this year’s celebration is #PressforProgress. At Gordon Boswell, we believe that flowers are the ideal way to express sentiments. In this case, we encourage you to show your support and appreciation for the women in your lives, and for everything they do – whether it be at work, home, in friendship, a romantic relationship, or a business partnership.
Every day, you work hard to provide for your family and ensure life is enjoyable and comfortable. Yet when it comes to treating yourself, you often have to wait on someone else. Gordon Boswell Flowers believes you shouldn’t have to. If you need a little pick-me-up, why not give flowers to yourself?
Few things lift the spirits like receiving the gift of flowers. They are a symbol of nature’s beauty and the precious, delicate nature of life. Gordon Boswell Flowers is pleased to provide a range of options in their floral selection. From bouquets to wrist corsages and boutonnieres, we can meet all your floral needs.
