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. Read More about Honor Your Loved One This Holiday »
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 »
Ready for the ramp up to the biggest holiday of them all this season? Nanz & Kraft Florists sure is, and to prove it, we've curated a collection of floral favorites and other gift items at our shop. We love the season of giving, and we've got a variety of flowers, wreaths, garlands, trees, poinsettias and trees to give to the ones you love or to decorate with in your own home. But today we're focusing on the kind of gift that comes in a box (surprise, we have those too!). Read More about Holiday Wishlist Gifts »
Want to make a great first impression this upcoming holiday season? Start with a wreath.
Our favorite circle of greenery ever is one of the classic emblems of the season, and also one of the first pieces of decor you can put up in advance of the holidays without feeling like you're rushing them. A wreath says, "come on in" in a way that nothing else can. Read More about Hang A Harvest Wreath In Warm Welcome »
Good news: Our Holiday Gift Guide is here, and it's packed with truly sensational seasonal gifts, with something for everyone available. But among all the floral goodies, we at Nanz & Kraft Florists want to shine a little light on those gourmet goods that come in a box - basically, a box of goodness.
Like gift baskets, boxes offer the advantage of giving many related items all at once and can suggest abundance, comfort, adventure, romance . . . the list goes on. A box, however, looks a little more modern than a basket, offering a streamlined, rustic look that keeps the focus solidly on what's inside. Read More about Gourmet Gift Boxes »
Everyone loves to play Santa sometimes, and no more so than when that involves concealing your identity from a randomly-assigned gift recipient for weeks. It just doesn't get more fun than the group gift swap, with its cloak of anonymity and big reveal at the end.
But it can be a challenge, too. After all, we often don't know the personal preferences and tastes of our assigned giftee, which is why so many people default to joke or gimmick gifts. And as fun as those are, we at Nanz & Kraft Florists think you can do better. Read More about Scrumptious Secret Santa Gifts »
We here at Nanz & Kraft Florists love the holiday season for its rich palette of colors and textures, which our seasonal blooms capture perfectly. This is the time of year when we make a strong appeal to the senses, simmering apple cider on the stove, hanging jingle bells on our doors, wrapping up in cozy blankets and staying warm by the fire.
One place that really deserves a good dose of holiday warmth is your office. And yet, our workplaces are often some of the toughest spaces to decorate. After all, it's not as if we can move the furniture around on a whim or choose the whole decorating scheme ourselves. There are customers, clients and co-workers to consider.

Christmas poinsettias are one of the classic sights of the season, and they seem to be everywhere we look!

At Nanz & Kraft Florists, we love everything about the Christmas season, and we want to make sure that your poinsettias stay looking merry and bright as long as possible.
