Celebrating with April Daisies

If we asked you to name a flower that completely embodies the essence of springtime, chances are the daisy would come to mind. But although you may imagine the iconic gold and white variety, this deceivingly simple looking flower comes in over 4,000 species, and grows naturally on every continent of the globe except Antarctica. Daisies come in the full spectrum of color and represent almost 10% of the flowering plants in the world.  No matter what your special occasion or event, the daisy is a classic choice - and Nanz & Kraft Florists are the best floral experts to call for the freshest, most exquisite cut daisies in Louisville. What's in a Name? The name daisy is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word "daes eage" which means "day's eye", so named because the flower opens its petals when the sun rises and closes them at sunset.   Read More about Celebrating with April Daisies »

Bring on the Springtime Flowers

By the time that spring officially arrives, the weather in Louisville has begun to warm up, the days are getting longer, and the colors have begun to return to the landscape. The crocus and daffodil, both considered the first harbingers of the season, have shown their face in many places. And at Nanz & Kraft Florist, our floral designers are ready to create amazing seasonal bouquets to celebrate the arrival of spring. Spring flowers are here, and they are beautiful! The hallmark of arrangements created from springtime flowers is the vivid color and variety. Designers use a lot of green to represent the renewal and rebirth, and vibrant purple, orange, pink, and blue add the excitement to the design.  Read More about Bring on the Springtime Flowers »

Floral Design Day – Meet Kaitlin

National Floral Design Day is an annual celebration of the beauty of flowers and the talented people who work with them every day.  Although largely recognized within the floral community, we thought we would take this opportunity to introduce you to one of our favorite designers, Kaitlin. If you have received a bouquet or floral arrangement from Nanz and Kraft Florists over the last couple of years, chances are excellent that Kate had something to do with it. Kate has worked at Nanz & Kraft Florists for two years. She moved to our team at the urging of her floral design mentor, who loved the environment here so much that she encouraged Kate to join her.  "It turned out to be a great opportunity for me, and I've grown so much as a designer here", she says.

A Month to Celebrate Louisville Weddings

According to the National Association of Bridal Consultants, February is National Wedding Month. Although that may not seem like the most natural choice - February is near the bottom of the list when it comes to weddings - the association shares that there is a very good reason behind the designation. February is the month that most couples begin wedding planning in earnest, and wedding consultants and vendors begin to see a spike in both inquiries and bookings for the year. Why so much activity? More people get engaged over the Christmas and New Year's holidays than any other time, and once the seasonal activity dies down, newly engaged couples are ready to get to work on their ceremony. Nanz & Kraft Florists is proud to be the chosen floral wedding planners for so many Louisville weddings! Here are a few other reasons we think February is a great time to celebrate the institution of marriage. Read More about A Month to Celebrate Louisville Weddings »

Whether you are the host of the party or are headed out to a friend's house to celebrate, flowers are the perfect way to decorate. You probably know that flowers have a language all their own. Over the years, specific blooms have come to represent certain events or emotions, and they often convey meaningful messages to the recipient. On New Year's Eve, many like to send white flowers. In the floral world, white blooms represent a new beginning and a clean slate - is there any better sentiment on New Year's Eve?  Read More about New Year’s Eve Floral Decor »
