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.

Fitting Flowers For Teachers And Nurses

There are some women in our lives who could only be described as ‘Super Ladies’. They are in our schools, in our hospitals, and in our doctor’s offices; our nurses and teachers. These inspiring women demonstrate strength, compassion, determination, and selflessness as they help the rest of us succeed. The women who embody these roles deserve to be thanked, to be shown just how much we appreciate them. The florists at Walter Knoll Florist wanted to design arrangements that would help you say ‘thank you’ to the teachers and nurses in your life.

Refresh Those Desks For Administrative Professionals Day

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.

How To Get The Scent Of Spring In A Vase

Now that we’re on Daylight Savings Time, it stands to reason that we’d be hopeful that warmer temperatures would be here to stay. Sadly, that’s never the case with weather in St. Louis - and most other parts of the country for that matter. Mother Nature keeps teasing us with a taste of spring, only to turn around and unleash cooler temperatures the next day. If you’re as impatient as the Walter Knoll Florist team is, there’s only one solution that’s guaranteed to help us deal with the uncertainty of spring until there’s proof that it’s here to stay. That solution involves filling any or every room in your home or workplace with the smell of spring - in the form of vases full of fragrant flowers.

Between now and then, anything is possible, and garden season is still a month or two away. For the time being, Walter Knoll Florist encourages you to infuse your home or workplace (preferably both), with a taste of spring through flowers, of course.
