When summer rolls around, many of us are jonesing to travel. We either have a once-in-a-lifetime trip planned or maybe we're finally visiting that U.S. destination we've always meant to get to. There's the desire to bring some culture and worldly experience into our lives, to see and feel things from a different perspective. Even if you aren't taking a trip this season, Bagoy's Florist & Home can offer you a little vacation hack in the form of flowers. We know that florals have the unique ability to conjure up the mood and sensibility of other places. They can be arranged to reflect a different culture, either helping you recall a visit or standing in for one. Read More about Flowers Inspired By Italy
Bagoy's Florist & Home spends the 4th of July like many of you do---relaxing and enjoying the long summer day. We love to be outside camping or at the lake, firing up the grill later for some good old American BBQ. We too look forward to the fireworks show and the chance to commune with family and friends, whether we're in a backyard, on a boat or gathering around the table. If you've been invited to spend Independence Day at someone else's home this year, bring a proper hostess gift along with that six pack and extra hot dog buns.

What will you bring to the table this summer? A citrusy ceviche? A platter of wild-caught salmon?

Bagoy's Florist & Home is here to help you pair your culinary creations with a floral centerpiece that is just as enchanting.

Customizing weddings is our passion here at Bagoy's Florist and Home, and that's never more the case than in June, the month with more weddings than any other. We provide the florals for everything from a spontaneous courthouse wedding to a destination one---we're talking the kind that take place atop glaciers and mountains---and love working on small, intimate affairs as much as we do large, formal ones. Our weddings showcase a variety of blooms that express the unique character of the couple at hand. Read More about June’s Custom Wedding & Anniversary Flowers
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
Imagine your best friend. Now imagine your best friend getting flowers, from you, on Best Friend's Day. If ever there was a time to deliver some blooming goodness to your bestie, it's on June 8, a day reserved for celebrating that one irreplaceable soul in your life who has---through thick and thin, for better or worse---been there. There are some people in our lives who deserve flowers, and then there are those people in our lives who deserve flowers. Bagoy's Florist & Home understands this distinction very well, and we have the flowers that speak to your most prized of friendships. Read More about The Best Flowers For Your Best Friends
Is there any transition more glorious than the one from spring to summer? We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home think not.
It's our pleasure to entice you with an early look at summer's floral bounty, featuring many of the flowers we fall in love with in spring. For sure, the two seasons share a lot of flowers in common (think hydrangea, iris and tulips), but in summer, we tend to see more assertive, richly-colored blossoms. There are those hammy showstoppers, sunflowers, and then there are those flowers that seem overdressed for the occasion (we're looking at you, zinnias). We have towering snapdragons, delicate garden roses and pretty petunias. Summer's a showcase for gorgeous flowers. In honor of our trees starting to show green here in Anchorage, we're giving you a glimpse of what's to come. Read More about Summer’s Coming, Go Outside!
Memorial Day has always been a hallowed occasion, a time when we commemorate our fallen soldiers and their service to country. This is why the Bagoy's Florist & Home team prepares a range of floral tributes---we want to ensure that the families of our dedicated servicemen and women find exactly what they need as they pay their respects. But the long weekend is also a time to gather with close friends and family to celebrate the arrival of summer. This is often a weekend full of events, from ceremonies and parades to backyard barbecues and pool parties. People come together to remember the brave soldiers in their lives, but also to enjoy the company of their loved ones. Read More about White Lilies Are Perfect For Memorial Day
Often we ask moms what they really want for Mother's Day, and that elicits a range of answers, most of which translate to just having some time to herself. Bagoy's Florist & Home have helped many, many people honor their mothers through flowers throughout the years, and we know that one of the reasons giving flowers is so popular is because they bring nature to us. In large part, flowers represent the opportunity to take a deep breath, to admire the beauty around us and to be soothed by it. Flowers are beloved for their exceptional beauty, but also for the overall experience they offer our senses. Read More about A Truly Transporting Gift For Mother’s Day
As May approaches, so does the end of the school year, and with it, graduations, recitals, awards ceremonies and all sorts of other events. Bagoy's Florist & Home knows that these celebrations often have their own floral traditions, including everything from boutennieres and corsages to a dozen congratulatory roses. There are decor considerations too, if you're hosting a graduation party or pre-prom photos in your home, along with the flowers you should offer your graduate or someone else's. Regardless, it's one of the happiest times to shop for flowers, since what they're commemorating is either a major accomplishment or one of the most important dances we will attend in our lives.
