Bagoy's Florist & Home is serving up some classic Thanksgiving centerpiece looks for your table. We love one in particular for the unexpected twist it offers, a little update to traditional centerpiece styling. And in fact, Thanksgiving itself is experiencing a bit of a reinvention these days. As one of our most cherished holidays, we don't do too much variation on the theme. But with the addition of Friendsgiving, tons of new takes on classic Thanksgiving dishes and more people than ever going the catering route, Thanksgiving has evolved, too.

Bagoy's Florist and Home is always excited to try out new entertaining ideas, and when those involve flowers, all the better! So we're happy to bring you a fun new twist on what to serve up on your fall entertaining table, especially when it showcases edible flowers. You may have known it's possible to consume certain flowers (organically-grown only, of course!), but chefs, foodies and mixologists have been having a field day (pardon the pun) with them, working edible blooms into salads, entrees and cocktails to beautiful effect.

We love a good summer soundtrack here at Bagoy's Florist & Home---something that captures the upbeat, sunny spirit of the season. But don't get us wrong: we love the sentimental and nostalgic songs that recall summer's past as much as we love danceable classics, too.
Because we're florists, our seasonal playlist is inspired by flowers. Every one of the picks below takes the floral world as its inspiration, from the title to the last note. And these are all classic songs you'll know and love, tried and true favorites that sound just as good now as they did when you first heard them. So sit back, relax and enjoy the sweet, sweet sounds of summer. Read More about A Summer Playlist Inspired By Flowers »
Customizing weddings is our passion here at Bagoy's Florist and Home, and that's never more the case than in June, the month with more weddings than any other. We provide the florals for everything from a spontaneous courthouse wedding to a destination one---we're talking the kind that take place atop glaciers and mountains---and love working on small, intimate affairs as much as we do large, formal ones. Our weddings showcase a variety of blooms that express the unique character of the couple at hand. Read More about June’s Custom Wedding & Anniversary Flowers »
Galentine's Day just might be one of the most inventive and necessary of the modern holidays, taken as it was from a television comedy. On an episode of Parks and Recreation in 2010, show protagonist Leslie Knope got all of her girls together for a female-centered lunch celebrating the sisterly bonds between them. The group exchanged gifts and laughs and in the process, Galentine's Day was born. And on February 13th, more and more women are getting together to make this holiday devoted to honoring female friendship a reality. We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home are here to help you make your Galentine's dreams come true for your favorite ladies. Read More about Flowers And Chocolate For Your Besties »

Let's face it, we do things a little differently here in Anchorage - necessarily so! While the rest of the country prepares for football games in sweater weather and balmy walks to the homecoming dance, we are bundled up against the elements - but that just means we do homecoming Alaska-style! The cold and (likely) rain aren't daunting to us. In fact, we are just as likely to pair our short dresses with rain boots or xtratufs than with stiletto heels.
Still, some things are traditional no matter where you are, and homecoming flowers fall into that category. If you are looking for the most beautiful homecoming flowers in these parts, you need look no further than Bagoy's Florist & Home. Read More about Florals for the Homecoming Dance »
Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends — and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode
The bonds which are created when a new baby is born extend beyond parent and child. In fact, any grandparent will tell you that the relationships with their grandchildren are among the strongest they have ever experienced. But once parents become grandparents, studies also indicate that the relationship with their grown children improves as well - indicating that building a strong inter-generational connection is one of the best things you can do for your family. National Grandparents Day is a time set aside to recognize how important the older generations are to our legacy, and Grandparents Day flowers are a great way to celebrate. .

We all have a list of responsibilities and tasks to accomplish. There are many things that are required of us each day, and sometimes we can lose the joy and simplicity of life. The motivation behind National "Just Because Day", which is celebrated on August 27, is to slow down just a bit and to do something for no reason at all. Whether you take the day off "just because", invite friends over for dinner "just because", or send flowers to someone special "just because" - this day gives us a great opportunity to break out of our routine and do something out of the ordinary. And why not?
Bagoy's Florist & Home provides flowers for special occasions all year long, but we love the spontaneity and joy of something done on a whim. You don't need a reason to send beautiful flowers this month - except to make someone happy! Read More about Sending Flowers Just Because »
