Celebrate Your Super Dad

“He adopted a role called Being a Father so his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector.”

-Tom Wolfe

Fathers are the very first superheroes we encounter. They keep us safe, encourage us to do more, and cheer us on when we go further than we thought we could. Sometimes they even wear funny outfits, just to make us laugh. Dads who love their children and take their role as a father seriously are larger-than-life. This Father’s Day, let your dad know what a hero he is to you with a fantastic gift just for him. The floral designers at Walter Knoll Florist know how special dads are, and we’ve created some amazing arrangements just for them.

Memorial Day’s Meaningful Flowers

Memorial Day became a legal federal holiday with the passage of the National Holiday Act of 1971. The holiday that we know as Memorial Day began as Decoration Day in May of 1868 when General John A Logan (who led a Northern organization for Civil War veterans), came up with the idea for a National Day of Remembrance to encourage people to decorate the graves of Civil War veterans. Today, Memorial Day is always observed on the last Monday of May. The historical roots of the observance are a distant memory as most people celebrate the holiday as the unofficial start of summer. Whether you’re having a backyard barbecue or a more informal picnic at the beach, the Walter Knoll Florist team wants to encourage you to infuse your celebration with colorful flowers.
