Not everyone appreciates the flowers of a Hosta, I too, am a fan of the flowers that appear!

Don't over fertilize your plants. Too much nitrogen can inhibit the flowers.

You can try a application of phosphorous to boost flowering. Bone Meal is a good way to do this.

Here are some links with more information.
