Patriotic Flowers For Your Holiday Table

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. Boy do we. Read More about Patriotic Flowers For Your Holiday Table »

Your Summertime Dinner Party Is Here

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 »

Flowers Fit For A Hero

Memorial Day is reserved for honoring those troops who died in service to their country. It's a solemn occasion, and yet we also use it as a time to gather with friends and family, remembering the soldiers we knew and loved and enjoying the people in our lives now. 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 »

Meet One Of Our Marvelous Moms

Nanz and Kraft Florists asked one of our resident flower experts and moms to weigh in on kids, flowers and what to give the special moms in your life for Mother's Day. Name: Debbie Frisbie Kids: Ellen, 28, Matthew, 25, Claire, 20, and John, 17 How did you get into floral work? I have always loved fresh flowers and usually have a bouquet somewhere in the house. I wanted to do something part-time with flexible hours. Nanz and Kraft was looking for seasonal help during the Christmas holiday, and I jumped at the chance to work with them. I have  loved working with the flowers from day one and have found that it is not a job but a joy to be able to be creative and make beautiful arrangements every day.

Congratulating Your Grad With Flowers

Summer is just around the corner, but before that, there's the end of the school year for our local students, and  for the seniors, graduation. This is a time filled with award ceremonies and parties, proms and other events that commemorate the achievements of our area scholars. No doubt you'll have at least one graduate to think about this year. For many of us, there are a few standout occasions on which we receive flowers. Graduation may be one of the first times in our lives that we are presented with a bouquet, making it one of the most memorable. The team at Nanz & Kraft Florists specializes in memory-making designs, so of course we have thoughts on what you should give. Read More about Congratulating Your Grad With Flowers »
