Your Summertime Dinner Party Is Here

.single #maincontent .img-featured { object-position: top; } 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 »

Insect-Resistant Butterfly & Bee Gardens

What is more peaceful than relaxing in your own backyard during the summer? We love long sunny afternoons in a backyard oasis of lounge chairs, lemonade, and peace. Sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Make this serene day even more beautiful by inviting butterflies to your afternoon - it is as easy as adding a few beautiful flowers to your patio or yard. Butterfly and bee gardens are a natural way to both help the environment and add color and interest to your outdoor space - and Nanz & Kraft Florists are here to help you to cultivate the perfect plants and flowers to do just that. Why Bees? The honeybee population is in dramatic decline globally, as well as here in the US. Bees are critical to the ecosystem, especially in the area of cultivating the food (vegetables, fruit and grains) that we need. Playing even a small part to encourage the return of the bees is important - and experts assure us that when gathering nectar and pollinating, bees will almost never sting. Just leave them to do their job, and they will ignore you.  Read More about Insect-Resistant Butterfly & Bee Gardens »
