Cozy blankets, spiced candles, cinnamon brooms and cornucopias. It's Fall, and here at Bagoy's Florist & Home, we're talking texture. If there's one quality that defines autumnal decor, this is it.

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 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.

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.

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
