We've barely put away the Mardi Gras decor and we've got another great reason to celebrate - and use a lot of left-over green beads! The Wearin' of the Green Parade takes place here in Baton Rouge on March 18th, one day after the official holiday. But why do we celebrate this day anyway? Both a cultural phenomenon and a religious observance, the date was originally established as a Catholic feast day, but has grown into a celebration of all things Irish. Whether to show off your own Irish flair or to send a token to your Celtic friends, Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts is the place to call for the most beautiful and unique green florals in town.
Did You Know? St. Patrick was not Irish, he was born to a family in Great Britain. As a young man, he was kidnapped by pirates and was held captive in Ireland. After his release, he became a priest and returned to Ireland to be a missionary to the local Celtic druid peoples. Read More about St. Patrick’s Day Florals »
Baton Rouge doesn't have the cold winters that many parts of the country experience, but we still look forward to the new season with anticipation. Beautiful spring days, before the heat of summer sets in, are carefree and sunny. And the bright flowers of springtime exhibit some of the most vivid colors we'll see all year. At Billy Heroman's Flowers, we love creating the spring bouquets that will revitalize the ambiance of any home or office, and remind us all of the promise and optimism of the season.
The earliest flowers of spring are generally the crocus (which blooms even in snow in northern states) and the daffodil - two quintessential harbingers of springtime. Read More about Seasonal Spring Flowers »
