Honor Your Loved One This Holiday

By David Kraft on December 10, 2018 in Christmas, Flowers, Sympathy. 0 Comments

The holidays are a time when we travel over hill and dale to be with the ones we love. We reunite with family members we maybe haven't seen since last Christmas. We introduce new family members. We spend time with our closest friends and neighbors, feasting and making merry. It can be a time where the loss of a loved one can be felt acutely. Programs like Wreaths Across America, which holds a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery every year, are an inspiring example of how to honor and remember the ones we've lost at the holidays. Nanz & Kraft Florists is also here to help you do that.

A Fun, Creative Holiday

By David Kraft on December 3, 2018 in Christmas, Flowers. 0 Comments

Of the many many ways we have fun over the holidays, being creative has got to be at the top. Whether we're brainstorming the best way to light up the front yard, baking the first of many sets of cookies (or fudge, or candy, or cake), we're hands-on in our homemaking this time of year. Sure, we cherish our traditions, but making new things is always in order during the season. And if we have kids? It's almost craft overload on our kitchen table. We here at Nanz & Kraft Florists celebrate creativity in all its forms, naturally, since we're creative types ourselves. And we want to bring some floral artistry to your table and leave you with a way to make your own. Read More about A Fun, Creative Holiday

How To Style Friendsgiving

By David Kraft on November 5, 2018 in Flowers, Thanksgiving. 0 Comments

If you're one of the lucky people to have been invited to a Friendsgiving celebration, get ready to have a good time. This approach to Thanksgiving has been gaining traction in recent years, and with it comes a whole new set of traditions to blend in with the old. You may be entreated to bring a dish that reflects your culture or ethnic background. You may be asked to provide a side item that puts a new twist on a classic holiday dish. Friendsgiving may seem more like a casual cocktail party or mixer, with neighbors, friends, co-workers, teachers and more mingling and getting to know each other, even as they're gathered in the same spirit as at traditional Thanksgiving.

A Distinctive Gift For Your Boss

By David Kraft on October 7, 2018 in gifts, Plants. 0 Comments

In 1958, an enterprising young employee wanted to create a special day for her boss, who also happened to be her dad. Just a few short years later, National Bosses Day was officially adopted, and thereafter, our mentors, leaders and guides were treated to some much-deserved appreciation on October 16. Nanz & Kraft Florists has a bevy of appropriate gifts to offer in tribute, all of them hitting just the right note. But our favorite item is green, interesting and the perfect scale to keep on an office desk. Read More about A Distinctive Gift For Your Boss
