September 15 to October 15 marks National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time reserved for honoring the achievements and contributions of Hispanic Americans and their families. This is a great time to embrace Latino culture, since many Latin American countries just celebrated the anniversary of their independence in September, including Mexico, where one of Bagoy's Florist & Home's most beloved employees, Maria, was born. This month, we celebrate Mexico's enduring legacy, and Maria's, too. As the member of our team who has been with us the longest, she's certainly set the bar high and established a legacy in her own right.

November is one of our favorite times here at Bagoy's Florist & Home. As we usher in the holidays (and the season's rich, luxe blooms), there are so many occasions to design and deliver flowers for, we can hardly keep track. Dinners, parties, office events, community celebrations, school festivities - all of these require decor, and lucky for us, that's often in the form of flowers. Holiday flowers are a big deal, not just for us, but for millions of people who will be using them on their tables this season or offering them as gifts.
But the biggest big deal of all is the Thanksgiving centerpiece. If ever there was a time to make a statement with flowers, it's now. Read More about Statement Centerpieces for Thanksgiving »
What are your Thanksgiving plans? If you're like many Americans - 50 million last year, to be exact - you'll be traveling over hill and dale at least 50 miles from your own home to break bread with the ones you love. In our view here at Bagoy's Florist & Home, that means you probably need to consider bringing a host or hostess gift.
You may already be contributing something to the table, but there's nothing quite like the courtesy shown when you come bearing a gift in hand. And since it's customary in the U.S. that we exchange chocolate or flowers, we're pretty certain we have something perfect for the occasion. Read More about Hostess Gifts with the Mostess »
If there's one flower that's more sought after than most right now, it's the dahlia. This uncommon beauty with the starry shape and manifold layers is about to go out of season, making it even more desirable.

We at Bagoy's Florist & Home invite you to consider the complex dahlia as a worthy addition to your floral decor. Read More about Decorating with Dahlias »
