A Green Beauty For Your Super Ladies

They’re some of our must undersung heroes, working tirelessly to educate, nurture, inspire and protect some of our youngest and most helpless citizens. In between, they raise their own children. They are our best friends, sisters, aunts, mothers, colleagues and neighbors. Teachers and Nurses Appreciation Weeks run from May 6 through May 12 this year, a time to honor the people—mostly women, in these female dominated fields—who empower the rest of us. Nanz & Kraft Florists knows just what to give these super ladies.

Celebrate Our Pretty Planet This Earth Day

Oh, Earth, how much do we love you? Let us at Nanz & Kraft Florists count the ways.

For starters, we spend the majority of our days working with some of our planet’s most glorious features—its plants and flowers. So we’re thrilled every time Earth Day comes around (April 22). We love to see our customers take home nature’s riches at a time when interest and appreciation for our planet is at its highest. We know that having plants and flowers in the home promotes a love of nature, helps keep the air healthy and gives people a connection to the Earth. If we care for plants and flowers, we are far more likely to be conscious in how we care for our planet overall.

Raising Awareness For Your Desktop

At Nanz & Kraft Florists, no holiday goes uncelebrated, and that includes Administrative Professionals Day. In fact, we see this as an occasion to not only honor those professionals who so often make up the backbone of our business or workplace, but to call attention to their work space itself. These important people need a desktop that not only functions well but looks good too. And after a long and trying winter, we’re certain your admins areas could use some sprucing up.

A Deep Refresh For Spring With Healthy Plants

We pride ourselves on our understanding of how plants keep us healthy here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, so much so that we’ve devoted an entire category to those plants in our shop. We’re so convinced of the health-giving benefits of plants that we work to get them into the hands and homes of our customers. In spring, we’re often preoccupied with doing a big clean in our homes paring down and sweeping away the last of the winter. But we suggest that you think about what you can add to your space to help make it a healthier, happier year.

Fun Baskets For Easter

Nanz & Kraft Florists sees every holiday or occasion as an opportunity to be creative and to have some fun. Along with our classic designs featuring traditional seasonal flowers, we like to take a chance here and there and do something really different. In this case, you might call it a leap, given that our twist on the Easter basket involves a bunny. No, we’re not talking a basket tied up with cellophane and brimming with chocolates and Peeps.

Scent Your Spring With Stargazers

Oh, the stargazer. It explodes open to reveal its intense signature pink, its petals fanning out to form a star. But that’s only half of the story, the rest belongs to its scent.

Here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we appreciate the wholeness of each bloom that comes our way, understanding that the experience of flowers goes far beyond their visual appeal. Many entice the nose as much as they do the eyes, and one of the best at that is the stargazer lily.

Sneak Some Spring Into Your Scene

While we may still have a few weeks of winter left here in Louisville, at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we’re starting to see our spring haul come in. And by haul we don’t mean from the garden—though that would be nice—we mean the bright flowers and plants (and blooming plants) that herald the arrival of spring. So while it might not look like it yet outside, we have exactly what you need to turn your inside spaces right around the corner into spring.

A Vivid Bouquet For International Women’s Day

On March 8, we’ll join over 100 countries across the world in honoring the achievements and efforts of women on International Women’s Day. And while we may not have a floral giving tradition for this important day, we here at Nanz & Kraft Florists think we should. In Italy, they exchange yellow mimosa flowers, for instance. And while that would be beautiful, we don’t think our gifts should be limited to one flower; after all, what better way to emphasize the collective power of thousands of unique individual women than to offer them the whole range of flowers?

Buy Flowers & Plants For Yourself, It’s Good For You!

We’re not doctors, but Nanz & Kraft Florists have made some keen observations about the impact of flowers on emotional well being, and we’re prepared to deliver the results. In short, flowers are good for you.

We’re not going to cite the countless studies that show conclusively that a vase, dish, bowl, planter or any other container full of blooms or greens positively affects your health. But we are going to speak from experience—we live with flowers and plants—and say that everything you’ve read is true. Flowers and plants connect us to nature. They cheer us up. They stimulate and reward our senses. They clean our air. They make us feel loved and looked after. Therefore, we should be buying them for ourselves.

Flowers That Matter So Much

Some flowers matter more than others, and when that happens, it’s because of the occasion. One of the most meaningful flower exchanges we see here at Nanz & Kraft Florists relates to small, personal moments and events. The kinds of occasions that we create by giving flowers, rather than the reverse. There are no flowers that matter more than the ones that are truly unexpected, that are given with a sense of occasion even if one doesn’t exist. On the other hand, big gestures of flowers on certifiably momentous occasions are equally wonderful.
