How To Celebrate Sweetest Day

Sweetest Day is coming up this month and we want to help you celebrate it in style. Designated on the third Saturday of October, this special day began in 1922 when Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee, wanted to spread a little joy and happiness to the people around him that had very little. He passed out candy and treats to orphans, shut-ins and others whom society had forgotten. Today we celebrate by sharing treats with our loved ones and sweethearts, and by bringing them to hospitals, nursing homes or shelters to bless those less fortunate. Walter Knoll Florist is ready with plenty of great ideas to help you make Sweetest Day the best ever.

Center Yourself This September With Plants

When stress levels begin to rise and everything can feel out of balance, find a way to center yourself in small ways that restore and refresh. Surrounding yourself with beautiful natural foliage is a great way to connect with nature, breathe some fresh air and gaze on calming colors and textures. Incorporate a dish garden or blooming plant into your office or work space for a restorative balance that will leave you feeling refreshed and whole. Since plants give off oxygen and take in carbon dioxide, they purify the air and provide you with healthy fresh air in return. St. Louis florist Walter Knoll Florist suggests taking a few minutes to engage in meditation and deep breathing exercises near your favorite plant when things get stressful.

While Forget-Me-Nots were traditionally given on this day, the floral experts at Walter Knoll Florist suggest sending or bringing your grandparents an arrangement that has special meaning to them.

Summer’s Beautiful White Flowers

When you include white in your home or office decor, you bring a freshness to the space like no other. While white has traditionally been a summer-only color, we offer an alternative to this idea. Much like the trend in the fashion industry of ignoring the “no white after Labor Day” rule, we admire the bold and modern look of white decor all year round. Whether you go all out with white furniture and carpeting, or simply add white accents to make a room sizzle for a season, white has a major effect on your look. Clean lines and unusual textures emerge when you use white in your decorating. The floral designers at Walter Knoll Florist have some excellent all-white floral arrangements to include in your decorating.

Garden Flowers That Enchant Bees

Bees are fighting a losing battle these days, with environmental changes affecting their livelihood. These important contributors to the world’s food sources could leave a very big problem behind if they disappear completely. But there are ways we can help, right in our own backyards. If you have a thriving garden, be sure to include bee-friendly options like daisies, irises, roses and lavender to attract bees and give them a safe place to work. Bees need fresh water to stay hydrated and some shade for hot days- providing both of these elements in your garden is a recipe for a successful bee culture in your yard. Walter Knoll Florist encourages you to make your outdoor space beautifully inviting for bees and other pollinators.
