Soft White Styles For End Of Summer

By David Kraft on August 19, 2018 in Flowers, Summer Flowers. 0 Comments

Ease up this coming Labor Day weekend---you deserve it. Nanz & Kraft Florists sees no reason not to spend Monday, September 3 in the style in which it was intended: feeling proud about your achievements so far this year and giving yourself a much-deserved break from them. Labor Day is a moment to celebrate the American worker, and since most of us count ourselves a part of this group, we've all got reason to take a day off. Over time, this weekend has also evolved to mark the end of summer, and we're often scrambling to socialize or get one last trip in before the onset of fall and the holiday season. But we encourage you to slow down and put your feet up, partake in a little self-care. And we've got the flowers to support that. Read More about Soft White Styles For End Of Summer

Sunny, Bee-Friendly Sunflowers

Nanz & Kraft Florists simply can't thank bees enough. These multi-tasking powerhouses are responsible for pollinating 90 commercially grown crops and over 80% of all flowering plants. Together, plants and bees have adapted and evolved for millions of years each to the benefit of the other, refining their symbiotic relationship over time like the most successful romances do. We're taking a minute to honor the work of bees by showing off one of their favorite flowers. Read More about Sunny, Bee-Friendly Sunflowers

There's nothing like having flowers in the home, whether you bought them for yourself or received them as a gift. First you take a minute (or 20) to swoon, admiring their glory from every angle, noticing all of the little details and appreciating the overall design. After that, you're faced with where to place those flowers. Naturally, you seek a spot that will show them off to best advantage and allow them to be admired as much as possible. Nanz & Kraft Florists can help you match the perfect space in your home with the perfect flowers you have in hand (or vase). Read More about Finding The Perfect Home For Flowers In Yours

Songs Of Summer, Floral Edition

By David Kraft on July 16, 2018 in Summer Flowers. 0 Comments

There's nothing quite like the onset of summer to put us in the mood for music. Every year, performers release albums and songs that seem designed for the season, all vying to become the top tracks of the summer. These tunes are often catchy and created in the season's spirit, capturing its playful, lazy vibe. Nanz and Kraft Florists has put together one such playlist for you, and of course it is inspired by flowers. In fact, since what seems like forever, musical artists have felt compelled to sing about the natural world, taking titles, lyrics and subject matter from flowers, plants and herbs. The result? Some of our most beloved songs. Read More about Songs Of Summer, Floral Edition

Your Summertime Dinner Party Is Here

By David Kraft on June 18, 2018 in Flowers, Summer Flowers. 0 Comments

Whether you're hosting a summer gathering or attending one, there are several key elements necessary to creating a magical dinner party. Fortunately, many of them are abundantly available: longer days and warmer nights. Moonlight, the chirping of cicadas, fruits and veggies spilling from the garden (or the grocer's shelves). Half of the work is already done for you, leaving just the meal planning and the decor (and the music, don't forget the music!). When we think of summer dinner party menus here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we're inspired by the season's easy elegance, its relaxed polish. Put down a platter of grilled chicken or salmon, a heaping bowl of salad, crudite and charcuterie that showcase summer's meats, cheeses and fruits. The flavors should be bright and light, palette-cleansing and citrus-forward. And you know what? We think your florals should be too. Read More about Your Summertime Dinner Party Is Here

A Preview Of Summer’s Flowers

If you're in the mood to ruminate a little about summer's flowers, join the club. We here at Nanz & Kraft Florists love to look ahead to each season's floral riches, and even though spring and summer share many flowers in common, there are still certain bloomers that have their fullest expression in summer, along with ways of designing with them that fit better, too. We also bring flowers and plants to different areas of our spaces in the summertime such as the patio, the garden, out by the pool. We refresh our entryways with new plants and fill our indoor pots with florals that introduce the fresh, vibrant spirit of the season. Read More about A Preview Of Summer’s Flowers
