With Grandparents Day quickly approaching (on the first Sunday after Labor Day in September), it’s time to think about ways to acknowledge and thank grandparents for all they do for their grandchildren and the family as a whole. In particular, the bond between grandchildren and grandparents can be very strong and lead to lasting memories. Spending time together, creating gifts for one another and simply giving encouraging words and advice are all wonderful ways to bridge the generational gap.
To honor grandparents, have children choose a beautiful floral arrangement, long-lasting plant design, or special gift to be delivered directly to Nana and Papa on Grandparents Day. The professionals at Bagoy’s Florist & Home are proud to deliver your special design anywhere in the Anchorage area, including nursing homes like Anchorage Pioneer Home, Atlas Home Care, Providence Horizon House, as well as residences in the area or in the lower 48. We have also come up with a few ways you and your family might enjoy spending time with your grandparents! Read More about Gifts To Thank And Celebrate Grandparents »

Each January, we all search for ways to become healthier, happier versions of ourselves. One simple way to make improvements to our mental and physical well-being is by adding more flowers into our lives. The floral experts at Bagoy's Florist have several reasons flowers will add value to your year.
Flowers can help you breathe easier. Plants and flowers are air purifiers, meaning they absorb harmful toxins in the air that can often be the root cause of headaches, congestion and other cold symptoms. Breathing fresh air will make you more focused and productive, so think about adding a regular bouquet to your desk at work.
Flowers can reduce stress. The greenery that accompanies flowers is known to reduce stress and help create a calm, peaceful environment. Lower stress and anxiety by spending a few minutes gazing at flowers each day.
Flowers can improve your creativity. Color is a creativity booster, so surrounding yourself with blooms in your favorite hues is a sure way to start thinking outside the box. Read More about Healthier, Happier You in 2019! »
