Billy Heroman Flowers & Gifts has a vacation destination for you---and we think you're going to fall in love with it. It's inspired by one of our country's most beautiful assets, its flowers.

In New York, lilacs take center stage, while Michigan delights in its endless rows of tulips. We think there's no better time than now to start planning a flower-centric vacation for next year. Attending a city or region's floral event is a great way to discover the natural beauty of a place and to participate in its local culture. Our top picks for our Baton Rouge neighbors are below.

Chances are, you'll be doing some socializing this 4th of July, and probably in your own home. We here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts think that in that case, you should have some firework-level flowers on hand. Preferably in the center of your holiday table, where everyone can get a good look at them. Contrary to what you might think, your 4th flowers don't need to be of the red, white and blue variety; you've got plenty of opportunities to decorate with patriotic flair elsewhere in your home and outdoors. Instead, focus on putting something out that offers a lot of impact and feels just right for summer. Read More about Unveil A Showstopper Centerpiece This Fourth of July »
Summertime is practically made for pretty parties, so unfurl the table linens and set out the good china.

Everyone loves getting an invite to a summertime fest. Everything seems to be conspiring in favor of gatherings that go late into the evening, taking advantage of the long days and great weather. Your flowers can do the same. Read More about The Great Entertainer »
In the U.S., June is the most popular month for marriage, and we here at Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts understand why. Weather-wise, most of the country has its fair share of blue-skies-and-sunshine. Flowers are at their rosiest (forgive the pun), and it's an optimal time to travel. And where there are weddings, there are anniversaries. If June is all about the wedding flower bounty, it follows that it's awash in anniversary blooms, too.

On National Best Friend's Day, do something special for your bestie. Take her to lunch, meet her for drinks, sneak in a midday movie and definitely present her with flowers. Flowers have the ability to convey our feelings, sure, but you're probably already good at that when it comes to your best friend. Instead, offer her a batch of blooms that will both elaborate on what she already knows and give her something beautiful to look at. The Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts team has seen every flower exchange in the books, and the ones that are intended to honor a friendship are always so fun to put together. Because we know our besties so well, it's easy to create the perfect piece. Read More about Sweet Flowers To Honor The Best Of Friendships »
We've all heard the expression, "April showers bring May flowers," but what do May's flowers bring?
Aside from our abject appreciation, they give way to June's flowers, or the blossoms of early summer, to wax poetic about it. Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts loves what every season brings flower-wise, but there's certainly something about summer. The flowers that thrive then are some of the most dazzling of the year, saturated with color, bursting with interest. And that's why we want to do a sneak peek at what's in store, and also to point out how many flowers spring and summer share in common, making the transition from May to June not only easy but beautiful.
