Halloween is only weeks away, and preparations are well underway. Die-hard Halloween fans are decorating lawns, while moms are helping kids search for the perfect costume. Although the holiday has its origins in both a pagan Celtic festival, and the Christian “All Hallow’s Eve”; for most it is a celebration of childhood, candy and spooky fun.
Halloween is marked by a number of popular festivities, including hayrides, apple bobbing, costume contests and bonfires. In many locations around the world, trick or treating emphasizes the “trick” aspect of the activity. But here at home, it’s all about the candy! From the earliest ages, children look forward to traveling from door to door asking for a treat. With that in mind, perhaps you have an older child or colleague that is a bit nostalgic for the old days of candy-gathering. If so, this gift is for them. Send them some of their favorite sweet treats and let them know you appreciate that they are still a kid at heart, even if trick-or-treating is a thing of the past.
This is a great time of year to decorate a home or office, either for a party or simply for seasonal ambiance. Nanz & Kraft has created several whimsically “spooky” plants and flower arrangements especially for Halloween. The Haunted Hijinks bouquet is a perfect example of how bright fall blooms – such as roses, hydrangea and mums – can be paired with fall leaves, a few haunted accessories and a pumpkin container; resulting in the perfect Halloween centerpiece.
From spiders in their webs, to cats wearing hats and plants growing out of skulls – Nanz & Kraft’s expert florists have outdone themselves creating fun ways for you to accentuate the fun of Halloween in a beautiful way. We invite you to look around our site to view such arrangements as Kreepy Kalanchoe, That Old Black Magic, and Mums Macabre. We had fun assembling this collection, and we know you and your party guests will enjoy them as well.
Happy Halloween, Louisville!
