By David Kraft on May 17, 2017 in Memorial Day. 0 Comments

Monday, May 29 is Memorial Day, a yearly observance which originated nearly 150 years ago, in the years following the Civil War. It was established out of respect for the brave men and women who died in that war - but has continued in order to give honor to all those throughout the history of our country who have sacrificed everything for freedom. At Nanz & Kraft Florists, we join our community in remembering the fallen, as well as in comforting the families still grieving the loss of a military spouse, sibling, child, or parent. "Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." - Harry S. Truman Read More about Patriotic Flowers to Remember Them

Prom Flowers & Corsages for Mom

By David Kraft on April 18, 2017 in Graduation, Prom. 0 Comments

In ancient cultures, the floral corsage was worn to ward off evil spirits, especially during special events such as weddings. Because flowers and herbs were also thought to protect people from illness and disease, eventually corsages and boutonnieres were worn nearly every day. However, as the centuries passed, beliefs changed and medical knowledge increased, the usage of flowers for these purposes waned and became more of a luxury. By the late 17th century, floral corsages were primarily used as a gift of courtship and romantic admiration. Today, corsages and boutonnieres are for special formal occasions - as prom flowers, for formal events, graduation ceremonies, and even Mother's Day. No matter what the event or celebration this spring, you can trust the designers at Nanz & Kraft Florists to create something beautiful!  Read More about Prom Flowers & Corsages for Mom
