The impact of flowers on health and well being is widely known, with study after study confirming that there are real benefits to be had from living a life alongside flowers. After all, we send get well flowers for a reason, and not just because fresh blooms tend to lift the spirit and boost morale. The exchange of flowers keeps us connected to our friends and loved ones. Plants and flowers oxygenate the air around us, making for a healthier environment.

Winter is the perfect time to experiment with flowers. There are a rich variety of cold-weather bloomers, and when they're worked into designs, they really capture the season and speak to its best features. This is a time when we can bring in dark greens, pine cones, branches, berries and cinnamon sticks. Designs can be luxe, rustic or elegant. Nothing's off the table.
Here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we're loving designs inspired by the winter landscape; think quiet walks in the snowy woods, bare branches dusted with snow and iced-over ponds glittering with sunshine. Read More about Winter’s Lavish White Blooms »

Good news: Our Holiday Gift Guide is here, and it's packed with truly sensational seasonal gifts, with something for everyone available. But among all the floral goodies, we at Nanz & Kraft Florists want to shine a little light on those gourmet goods that come in a box - basically, a box of goodness.
Like gift baskets, boxes offer the advantage of giving many related items all at once and can suggest abundance, comfort, adventure, romance . . . the list goes on. A box, however, looks a little more modern than a basket, offering a streamlined, rustic look that keeps the focus solidly on what's inside. Read More about Gourmet Gift Boxes »
