With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s time to start thinking about all things sentimental: cards, boxes of chocolates, and, of course, flowers. At Bagoy's Florist we believe roses are the most sentimental classic display of true love. The meaning behind roses is historically represented in their color. To choose a color that says exactly what you want is to communicate your love to your sweetheart this year at Valentine’s Day. Read More about Valentine’s Roses
Bagoy's Florist & Home provides flowers and plants for every occasion on the books, but we acknowledge that Father's Day can be a real trick in terms of what to give. Our dads can be some of the most difficult people to buy for, since they are so often devoted to giving and don't think too much about what they'd like for themselves. We examine their hobbies and interests, pick up on the latest gadgets or trends, or default to buying them their favorite goodies. This year, we encourage you to think outside the box. Well, not too far outside the box. Just think differently about what can be in it. Read More about A Handsome Gift for Dad
This year saw the unparalleled success of the movie Wonder Woman, which featured the classic superhero in fully modern form. As both Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Weeks approach (May 6-May 12), we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home encourage you to honor the super ladies in your life---not only the teachers and nurses, but the moms, sisters, friends and colleagues who empower the lives of others every day. These women deserve to be celebrated, and the best way to honor them is with a flower gift that speaks to their strength. Read More about Who Are Your Wonder Women?
Whether you buy them for yourself (which we advised last week), or for someone else on International Women's Day (March 8 this year), flower gifts are an excellent way to honor the achievements of women.

It's lovely when someone gives us flowers---there's truly nothing like it. But we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home think that sometimes, you just need to give yourself the gift of flowers.
With all of their proven health benefits, taking home a lush bowl of fresh blooms (or a plant!) is really an act of self-care. Flowers do their work on us without us really knowing it. They make for beautiful decorative pieces, sure, but they're also important reminders to slow down, embrace the moment and connect with nature. Read More about Flowers That Uplift The Soul
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

On November 28, we celebrate Giving Tuesday, the last in a row of named days after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Unlike those other two, Giving Tuesday is not devoted to consumers and the marketplace, at least not usually. Unless you're shopping flowers at Bagoy's Florist & Home, that is. Giving Tuesday can become even more rich and meaningful when you combine it with the giving of flowers, creating two recipients - your loved one and your favorite charity - instead of just one.

The idea of National Boss Day originated in 1958, when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce. She chose October 16 as an homage to her father's birthday, and her goal was to show appreciation for her boss at State Farm Insurance Company. She also imagined that the day could serve to enhance the relationship between employees and supervisors. In 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner officially proclaimed the day, which has grown in popularity and is observed not only in the United States, but also in Australia, India, and South Africa.
At Bagoy's Florist & Home, we believe that anyone who is a great leader deserves a little recognition. So for the encouragers, the promoters, and those who make our workplace a fun place to be, we say thank you! If you want to thank your great boss for all they do, we are here to help.
