As the New Year approaches, many people begin to think about small changes we can make to have a positive impact on our health, work and relationships. The floral experts at Nanz and Kraft Florists believe this can be done easily by simply including more flowers in your daily life. Here's why:
Flowers help you breathe cleaner air. Plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, absorbing harmful toxins and impurities in the air and leaving behind only clean air for clear thinking and increased focus.
Flowers boost creativity. Being around your favorite color has been proven to increase creative thought. So surrounding yourself with blooms in your favorite hues is a great way to channel more creative energy your way.
Flowers help strengthen relationships. Not only can sending someone flowers create a bond, but caring for another living thing will increase your sense of compassion and empathy, which are great traits in any relationship. Read More about A Motivated New Year »

I have loved working with the flowers from day one and have found that it is not a job but a joy to be able to be creative and make beautiful arrangements every 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?
