Strong, soft material like chenille and crushed velvet are accented with marble, copper, wood grain, and leather. Garden flowers like roses, dahlias and astilbe will be complemented by gray-green foliage like dusty miller, sage and seeded eucalyptus for a muted neutral appearance.

How did you get into floral work? I have always loved fresh flowers and usually have a bouquet somewhere in the house. I wanted to do something part-time with flexible hours. Nanz and Kraft was looking for seasonal help during the Christmas holiday, and I jumped at the chance to work with them. 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.

This is a time filled with award ceremonies and parties, proms and other events that commemorate the achievements of our area scholars.

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?

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.
