Corsages for Mother’s Day & Prom

Memorable occasions are made even more special when you include flowers and long-standing traditions. During the spring, one such tradition is the wearing of corsages for proms, Mother's Day, or graduations. The word corsage is French in origin and was strictly translated as "the bodice of a dress". The flowers worn were called the "bouquet de corsage," and over time, the term was shortened to simply "corsage." In contemporary times, corsages are also worn on the wrist, held in place by beautiful wristlets or bracelets. Whichever your preference, you can be sure that Bagoy's Florist & Home will provide the perfect floral accompaniment to your attire. Read More about Corsages for Mother’s Day & Prom »

Did You Know? The daisy is a composite flower - meaning that is is actually made up of many flowers that exist together. Each of the smaller flowers is called a floret.

Disk florets are located at the center of the flower; they are small and tubular.  Read More about Celebrating with Spring Daisies »

National Puppy Day – Remembering Sydney

Colleen Paige really loves pets. She is the founder of both National Dog Day and National Cat Day - but a decade ago, she organized National Puppy Day with a very different motive in mind. The day is set aside not only to celebrate the magic and love that puppies add to our lives - but to encourage people to adopt and rescue their furry friends, instead of buying them from puppy mills. The initiative has gained huge momentum around the globe, as people are encouraged to either adopt a puppy on March 23rd, or to donate to a local no-kill shelter. At Bagoy's Florist & Home, we agree that our dogs can be our best friends. We'd like to take this opportunity to remember our shop helper, Sydney, who we lost about one year ago at the age of 16.
