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?

The 4th of July is upon us, and Nanz & Kraft Florists can't wait to spend time with friends and family celebrating our great nation. And we know we're not alone; the chatter in the last couple of weeks in June is always about how you'll be spending your 4th of July. Will it be at the lake? By the pool? In the backyard, throwing the football around? We meander down the way to our neighbor's annual cookout and pile the kids in the car to go see the fireworks at night. It's an easy, laid back day of being outside in the company of those we enjoy the most, paying festive tribute to our country's independent spirit. Yes, we have the flowers to capture this sentiment.

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

Flowers Fit For A Hero

Most of us whose lives have been touched by someone in the military make some kind of tribute, whether that's a dinner, a visit to a grave site or attending a parade or commemorative event. In these cases, flowers that speak to the spirit of the day are in order, and we at Nanz & Kraft Florists are happy to provide them. Read More about Flowers Fit For A Hero
