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 »
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 »

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.

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 »
They're some of our must undersung heroes, working tirelessly to educate, nurture, inspire and protect some of our youngest and most helpless citizens. In between, they raise their own children.

Nanz & Kraft Florists knows just what to give these super ladies. Read More about A Green Beauty For Your Super Ladies »
Oh, Earth, how much do we love you? Let us at Nanz & Kraft Florists count the ways.
For starters, we spend the majority of our days working with some of our planet's most glorious features---its plants and flowers. So we're thrilled every time Earth Day comes around (April 22). We love to see our customers take home nature's riches at a time when interest and appreciation for our planet is at its highest. We know that having plants and flowers in the home promotes a love of nature, helps keep the air healthy and gives people a connection to the Earth. If we care for plants and flowers, we are far more likely to be conscious in how we care for our planet overall. Read More about Celebrate Our Pretty Planet This Earth Day »
At Nanz & Kraft Florists, no holiday goes uncelebrated, and that includes Administrative Professionals Day. In fact, we see this as an occasion to not only honor those professionals who so often make up the backbone of our business or workplace, but to call attention to their work space itself. These important people need a desktop that not only functions well but looks good too. And after a long and trying winter, we're certain your admins areas could use some sprucing up.

We pride ourselves on our understanding of how plants keep us healthy here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, so much so that we've devoted an entire category to those plants in our shop. We're so convinced of the health-giving benefits of plants that we work to get them into the hands and homes of our customers. In spring, we're often preoccupied with doing a big clean in our homes paring down and sweeping away the last of the winter. But we suggest that you think about what you can add to your space to help make it a healthier, happier year. Read More about A Deep Refresh For Spring With Healthy Plants »
Nanz & Kraft Florists sees every holiday or occasion as an opportunity to be creative and to have some fun. Along with our classic designs featuring traditional seasonal flowers, we like to take a chance here and there and do something really different. In this case, you might call it a leap, given that our twist on the Easter basket involves a bunny. No, we're not talking a basket tied up with cellophane and brimming with chocolates and Peeps.

Oh, the stargazer. It explodes open to reveal its intense signature pink, its petals fanning out to form a star. But that's only half of the story, the rest belongs to its scent.
Here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we appreciate the wholeness of each bloom that comes our way, understanding that the experience of flowers goes far beyond their visual appeal. Many entice the nose as much as they do the eyes, and one of the best at that is the stargazer lily. Read More about Scent Your Spring With Stargazers »
