Green Plants and Flowers

There is no doubt that the Irish culture is embedded in our own. We have phrases that are a part of our everyday life, we have foods that comfort us, and we even have a holiday that celebrates all things from Ireland. Interestingly enough, St. Patrick's Day was originally a religious observance honoring a man who was not even Irish - yet today, the over 36 million Americans who claim this heritage see March 17th as a day set aside for parades, green beer, and the wearing o' the green. St. Patrick's Day is a diverse cultural feast day, and one which everyone loves partaking in, whether Irish or not. St. Maewyn's Day? Saint Patrick's birth name was Maewyn Succat. He was born in Great Britain but adored in Ireland after single-handedly bringing Christianity to the nation.   Read More about Green Plants and Flowers »

As the year nears its end, the team at Nanz and Kraft Florists would like to thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special occasions all year long - and we look forward to providing the beauty and joy to life's important moments in the new year. With the holidays rapidly coming to a close, it is time to turn our eyes to New Year's Eve, and the parties and festivities we enjoy at this time of year. Whether you are the host of the party or are headed out to a friend's house to celebrate, flowers are the perfect way to decorate. You probably know that flowers have a language all their own. Over the years, specific blooms have come to represent certain events or emotions, and they often convey meaningful messages to the recipient. On New Year's Eve, many like to send white flowers. In the floral world, white blooms represent a new beginning and a clean slate - is there any better sentiment on New Year's Eve?  Read More about New Year’s Eve Floral Decor »
