Every year, as September nears, we start to think of autumn leaves falling and cooler weather. Since 1979, we also think of our grandparents. Grandparents Day is a holiday that we celebrate on the second Sunday after Labor Day in September. Although our grandparents means so much to us every day, this special day allows us to honor their love and devotion for us. Walter Knoll Florist can deliver your carefully chosen flowers, plants or other gifts to your grandparent’s residence, hospital, or assisted living facility anywhere in the greater St. Louis area, including Chesterfield Nursing Homes in the St. Louis area. In addition, the designers of Walter Knoll Florist are offering four ways to celebrate grandparents. Read More about 4 Ways to Celebrate Grandparents »
This month is Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated from September 15 until October 15 every fall. This is a wonderful opportunity to share stories, honor specific individuals, and promote deeper understanding and greater appreciation for the enduring contributions these individuals have made to our culture. We pay tribute during this month to the many generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced our nation and society. At Walter Knoll Florist, we are honored to participate in this rich cultural occasion by showcasing floral arrangements that feature flowers originating in Latin American regions.

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.

With Administrative Professionals Day just around the corner (April 25), it's time to bring a little "Desktop Awareness" to those work places and their surfaces. We here at Walter Knoll Florist want to bring attention to all the sad, bereft, disorganized, cluttered desks out there and call upon work places everywhere to restore them to their former glory. Given the fact that we spend almost as much time at work as we do at home (in some cases, more), it's important that we take the time to refresh and renew our work areas. Conference tables, cubicles, reception desks and personal desks need a good spring clean, too. What else do they need? New flowers and plants.
