This month the designers at Bagoy's Florist are eager to celebrate International Women’s Day with flowers on March 8. This is a day recognized across the globe when women everywhere celebrate strides, efforts and achievements in the fight for gender parity and equality. What women do you know who will be encouraged by your positive show of support? Female teachers, mentors and leaders who support and influence others are to be commended. This year's campaign theme is balance for better. Encourage the women you know who aim for a balanced, better world on a daily basis to continue their strong work with a beautiful bouquet of purple flowers, the movement's signature color.  Read More about Celebrate International Women’s Day With Flowers
