Some days carry more significance than others. Memorial Day is Monday, May 29, and is an opportunity to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as to send an acknowledgment to their loved ones who remain. If you are looking for patriotic flowers, memorial day arrangements, or thoughtful bouquets to observe this special day, Billy Heroman’s Flowers would be honored to help.

There are 85 million moms in the United States, but there are none as unique as yours. Although we all love our moms, each mother has influenced us in her own special way. That is what we celebrate this May 14 – the Mother’s Day stories that are unique to each family.
For all your special Moms and the stories they inspire, Billy Heroman’s Flowers has the floral designs and gifts that will make their day amazing. Here is a story shared by our team member Janet, who shares why motherhood has been so important to her.
“When I became a mom 31 years ago, I thought my greatest dream had been realized. My daughter was hope, joy, blessings, love, and laughter all wrapped up in one precious bundle. She taught me how much my mother loved & cared for me – in fact, the lessons my mother taught me in my youth now had meaning. I didn’t think love could be bigger than what I felt for my daughter – until this year when she gave birth to the two most perfect twin boys. As a retired teacher, working part-time at Billy Heroman’s Flowers, my schedule allows me to be home with Noah and Finn several days per week. The boys gave me a T-shirt that says, ‘A grandmommy is a mom with lots of frosting.’ I say, ‘Grandchildren are children with lots of frosting!’ I love being a mom and a grandmommy!” Janet Evans
Did You Know? Since ancient times, the matriarch of the family has been honored with floral displays and gifts – to this day, flowers are the top gift on Mother’s Day.
No matter your Mom’s style, you’ll find the perfect gift at Billy Heroman’s Flowers. So whether you choose a flowering plant or a luxurious bouquet of orchids, roses, lilies, and hydrangea, you can be assured that we will design it with love.

There is no one like her. She’s your best friend, your cheerleader, your confidante. She deserves recognition all year long, but on Mother’s Day, you want to be sure that she feels all the love you have for her. Billy Heroman’s Flowers has been helping you to honor all the special people in your life for over 60 years, and we have the most beautiful Mother’s Day gifts in Baton Rouge.

It is a wonderful feeling to be recognized for what you do. And this May we are given the opportunity to celebrate two very important careers. National Teachers Week is May 7-13, and National Nurses Week is May 6-12. Both teachers and nurses give of themselves selflessly and are known for their caring heart. Is there a special teacher or nurse in your life? Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has the floral designs and gifts that will let them know just how much you appreciate them.
Did You Know? Although the observance is celebrated over a week’s time, National Nurse’s Day is celebrated on May 6, and the week celebration which follows ends on May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
Most of us can think of a teacher that has influenced our lives and made a difference. Teachers inspire us to work harder and believe in ourselves. They invest time and energy into our progress and truly care about our success. Whether you are in school now, or still fondly remember a teacher from years ago, a floral design is a beautiful way to thank them for their heart.
Get Social: Tuesday, May 9 is National Teacher’s Day. Everyone is encouraged to post photos and stories of their favorite teacher to social media, along with the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
Nurses are with us through some of the most dramatic times of our lives. Aside from having an exceptionally demanding job, they also share their emotions and heart. They hold our hands when we are worried about a loved one, and rejoice with us when we welcome a new baby. It takes a special person to be a nurse, and during National Nurses Week, you have an awesome opportunity to tell them how much of a difference they make.
Billy Heroman’s Flowers has a beautiful collection of floral arrangements designed to be perfect for every occasion. To all of our Baton Rouge teachers and nurses we say thank you, and we appreciate all you do.
During World War II, the need arose for administrative personnel who could lend their skills and expertise to the general economy. Before long, the National Secretaries’ Association formed to recognize these hard-working individuals and the contributions they made to our nation’s commerce. Now known collectively as Administrative Professionals, these skilled individuals help businesses and organizations everywhere run efficiently, contributing to the overall success of the business and to the national economy at large. As we approach Administrative Professionals Week, Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts has some excellent suggestions designed to show your administrative professionals appreciation for the work they do every day.

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. Continue reading
