Custom plot options

I'd like to be able to make plots with my own custom gizmos in them.
They would be ignored by Mathematica's internal plotting organ, but
could be interpreted by my own special stuff.  But if I try to add
something special, Mathematica barfs on it and refuses to make the
plot.  As a silly example, I ask for a special option
BorderDecorations to be Flowers:

In[1]:= Plot[Cos[x],{x,0,2Pi},BorderDecorations->Flowers]

General::unkopt: Option BorderDecorations -> Flowers is not known for Plot.

Out[1]= Plot[Cos[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, BorderDecorations -> Flowers]

Does anyone now how to keep Mathematica from refusing to plot?  Just
to save you time, turning off General::unkopt would not be acceptable
to me, and it doesn't work anyway.
