That means that Walter Knoll Florist had already been in operation for 25 years when the holiday began! Read More about Honoring Mom on Her Special Day »
There are people around us every day that are doing great things - but their efforts seem to go unnoticed by most. However, if you asked people across St, Louis if they could recall a teacher that had influenced them, they would likely have a story to tell. Likewise, if you asked about a hospital stay the chances are excellent that they would have great things to say about their nurse. Although the two professions are very different, they have one characteristic in common - both nurses and teachers lead with their hearts when dealing with those in their charge. In the process, they encourage, comfort, and inspire us. Both teachers and nurses are being celebrated in May, and it is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to let them know just how much they matter.
Mark Your Calendars: National Nurses Week is May 6-12, with National Nurse Day being recognized on May 6. National Teachers Week is May 7-13, with National Teachers Day falling on May 9.

Easter Sunday is a holiday with something for everyone - a combination of two distinctly opposite traditions that have managed to merge to create one celebration. With Easter eggs and bunnies originating in pagan fertility festivals, and the Christian tradition contributing the story of the Resurrection, it is a strange combination indeed. Still, many people do observe elements of both traditions - and no matter how you celebrate, Walter Knoll Florist has the florals and gifts you are looking for.
The Easter Lily: While flowers have a place in both traditions, it is the Christian faith that views the Easter lily as symbolic. Representing hope and new life, the white lily is often used in Easter Sunday church services and to give to people of faith. Read More about Easter Lilies, Floral Designs & Gifts »

Here at Walter Knoll Florist, we love dogs. In fact, as a pet-friendly shop, it is not uncommon for us to have four or five dogs come to visit us every day. Because of our love for our puppies, we admire efforts such as National Puppy Day that aim to make life better for animals.
Established 10 years ago by Colleen Paige - who is also the pet-lover behind National Dog Day and National Cat Day - this latest effort was meant to bring attention to the issue of puppy mills for-profit breeders and to encourage people to adopt puppies from shelters instead. There are over 70,000 puppies born annually in the United States, and approximately 1.4 million dogs are surrendered to shelters each year. National Puppy Day seeks to educate families on the great need to give homes to these lovable animals who are hoping for a forever home.
