Spring flowers exhibit vivid colors and a fresh vibe that we just can’t get enough of – so whether you are looking for gorgeous Easter decor or the perfect gift, check out Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts Easter collection.  Continue reading

St. Patrick’s Day Florals

St. Patrick's 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

Thanking Grandparents for All They Do!

They have a role in the family that is irreplaceable. Part teacher, part best friend, part cheerleader and always there for their loved ones, we honor them on September 11 with their very own holiday. After all, what would we do without our grandparents? At Billy Heroman’s Flowers, we want to help you to thank these most amazing people with the perfect gift.

Grandma is beautiful, and her love is rare. That’s why the Exquisite Beauty bouquet is a great offering on Grandparent’s Day. This luxurious design showcases lilies, roses, hydrangea and cymbidium orchids, and is lavish in its presentation. For the person who always goes above and beyond, this arrangement tells her how much she is valued.

Decorate their home with this trio of delicate orchid plants. Graceful, elegant and always breath-taking, your grandparents will absolutely love this striking display. grandparents

Grandpa took you on adventures, long walks, and explorations – nothing was every boring or ordinary when you were with him. We love the idea of giving your grandfather this unique nature terrarium for his den or office – but it is only available in the local Baton Rouge and Port Allen areas, so stop by the shop and hand-deliver it to him. He’ll love seeing and spending time with you – and that you cherish the relationship you have with him.

Grandparent’s Day is September 11, and we know you can’t wait to honor these very special family members. Call Billy Heroman’s Flowers and tell us why your grandparents are the best on earth – and we’ll make sure we deliver the love they deserve.

With a closet full of ties and a garage packed with power tools, this Father’s Day may be the one that you should consider treating Dad a unique gift and an unexpected adventure. Dads say that their #1 desire is to spend time with those he loves, so why not create some memories that will make their way into the family photo album?

From the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center to the Shaw Center for the Arts to hot air balloon rides – there is something to fit every dad’s personality! Make sure no one goes hungry while you are exploring the city – before you leave, give dad one of our Tasting and Toasting treat baskets, filled with gourmet wine, cheese, nuts, and chocolate. These delicacies will provide great food whether running around Baton Rouge or relaxing on the couch watching a game.
