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?

Just in time for Administrative Professionals Day (April 25), we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home are calling attention to the condition of desks everywhere. After taking stock of the work surfaces in your place---including, but not limited to, conference tables, personal desks, common tables, reception areas and cubicles---ask yourself: Are our desks being all that they can be? Do they reflect order and efficiency? Or are they looking a little dismal and distressed? If the answer is the latter, you need a little desktop awareness in the form of new flowers and plants.

We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home welcome spring for so many reasons, not least of which is the chance to clean and organize our homes for the season. We love the opportunity for a refresh and a reset, and one of the best ways to achieve both is to introduce new plants and flowers into our homes. Our healthy plants line is the perfect way to both refresh your home and to ensure that you're creating a healthier environment too. Read More about Plants And Flowers For A Healthier Spring
One of the most charming emblems of Easter is its baskets, which we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home are just as inclined to fill with flowers and plants as candy. This custom comes to us from ancient times, when farmers carted their spring seedlings in baskets to be blessed. Later still, the big Easter meal was brought in the same way for the same purpose. It's only fair that the Easter Bunny would be hopping around with one, too. Read More about Easter’s Flower-Filled Baskets
Ah spring . . . It's just around the corner, and we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home are ready to welcome it with open arms. But it's not just the season's flowers we're beholding, it's their scent. We like to remember that the experience of fresh flowers is more than just what we see; they appeal to all of our senses equally. And while it's true that not every flower is created equally when it comes to fragrance, each one does have a distinct smell of freshness. Today we look to one of the most fragrant flowers of the bunch. Read More about The Radiant Fragrance of Stargazer Lilies
Bagoy's Florist & Home is looking ahead to spring, which is just around the corner, and by corner, we mean April. Still, there's the sense that spring is on the horizon as the temperature begins to creep up ever so slightly. We welcome all that heralds the season---the holidays, the equinox, the traditions, and of course, the flowers. Read More about Fresh From The Garden Flowers
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. And as that's exactly what IWD sets out to do (worldwide, we might add), Bagoy's is here to help you find the design that will do this important occasion justice.

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
We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home know that when we give flowers, it's always a meaningful gesture. But there are some occasions where flowers, and the impact they have, matter more than others. Think of the first time you were given flowers on a date (or gave them), the first corsage you pinned to your lapel or slipped on your wrist, the bouquet that was handed over with a hug when your loved one passed away. Flowers express feelings, but they also mark occasions. Read More about When Flowers Matter The Most Of All
