Let's talk fall tables. Specifically, the kind you entertain from. To put a finer point on it, your dining room table.

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 »
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 »
One of Thanksgiving's most enduring symbols is the cornucopia, an expression of the harvest that came from Greek mythology. While in that case it was a goat horn that Zeus accidentally broke off, today the cornucopia is typically represented as a basket full of the fruits of the season's harvest. What hasn't changed? The ancient cornucopia and the modern one both symbolize abundance, the results of our endeavors over the growing season, and the nourishment we take from our hearths and homes.
Is it any surprise then that we've made cornucopias into Thanksgiving centerpieces? Not to us at Nanz & Kraft Florists. Read More about Glorious Cornucopia Centerpieces and More »
