On March 8, we'll join over 100 countries across the world in honoring the achievements and efforts of women on International Women's Day. And while we may not have a floral giving tradition for this important day, we here at Nanz & Kraft Florists think we should. In Italy, they exchange yellow mimosa flowers, for instance. And while that would be beautiful, we don't think our gifts should be limited to one flower; after all, what better way to emphasize the collective power of thousands of unique individual women than to offer them the whole range of flowers?

But we are going to speak from experience---we live with flowers and plants---and say that everything you've read is true. Flowers and plants connect us to nature. They cheer us up.

Some flowers matter more than others, and when that happens, it's because of the occasion. One of the most meaningful flower exchanges we see here at Nanz & Kraft Florists relates to small, personal moments and events. The kinds of occasions that we create by giving flowers, rather than the reverse. There are no flowers that matter more than the ones that are truly unexpected, that are given with a sense of occasion even if one doesn't exist. On the other hand, big gestures of flowers on certifiably momentous occasions are equally wonderful. Read More about Flowers That Matter So Much »
