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. We have flowers that are best for your bff!

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. We know that one of the reasons for giving flowers is because they bring nature to us.
Flowers represent the opportunity to take a deep breath, 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.
Let a tropical arrangement like Private Paradise take you away! 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.

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 »
