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.

Want a Fall floral design that's the equivalent of your spiced pumpkin candle? Nanz & Kraft Florists has one. Actually, more than one. What do they all have in common? A real bid to the senses. An emphasis not just on rich, harvest colors, but on rich, harvest textures. You know the kind we mean. The crackling sound and warmth from a fire. The rustle of falling leaves. The crust on a pumpkin pie. This is the season for layering texture, and we've got it in floral form. Read More about The Rustic Textures Of Fall

The native flowers and plants reflect a richly diverse range of floral types, and today we're highlighting a design that brings many of them together in one vase.

Entertain This Gorgeous Floral Design

By David Kraft on September 18, 2018 in Fall, Flowers. 0 Comments

Let's talk fall tables. Specifically, the kind you entertain from. To put a finer point on it, your dining room table. Now, while it's not quite fall yet, we can feel it in the air here at Nanz and Kraft Florists, which is why we've already debuted our collection of harvest-hued (and textured!) floral designs. But at this stage in the game, you'll want to define any entertaining you do with a piece that isn't super fall heavy. You're looking for a transitional arrangement that will take you from summer into fall. Read More about Entertain This Gorgeous Floral Design

A Tablescape Glittering With Jewel-Toned Flowers

By David Kraft on September 17, 2018 in Fall, Flowers. 0 Comments

You might think there's nothing that can top that harvest-hued decor you see popping up in September and October; it's homey, it's comforting, it's the essence of fall. But we here at Nanz & Kraft Florists beg to differ with the idea that there's only one seasonal palette that belongs to fall. The holiday season has red and green, sure, but it's dressed in white, blue, silver and gold just as often too. It's the same with autumn, for it is also the season of jewel tones, and if you think about it, that just makes sense. As we transition to a darker, cooler few months, spending more time in our homes, we look for ways to create vibrant displays in our personal space. Colors from the gemstone spectrum have depth but are also vivid. They just fit beautifully with the season. Read More about A Tablescape Glittering With Jewel-Toned Flowers
