Buy Flowers & Plants For Yourself, It’s Good For You!

We're not doctors, but Nanz & Kraft Florists have made some keen observations about the impact of flowers on emotional well being, and we're prepared to deliver the results. In short, flowers are good for you. We're not going to cite the countless studies that show conclusively that a vase, dish, bowl, planter or any other container full of blooms or greens positively affects your health. 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. They stimulate and reward our senses. They clean our air. They make us feel loved and looked after. Therefore, we should be buying them for ourselves.

Flowers That Matter So Much

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 »

Halloween Gifts & Spooky Decor

It's never too early in the season of giving to start doling out the gifts, or so we think here at Nanz & Kraft Florists. And since Halloween is such a kid-centered occasion, a time of magic and mischief, it's the perfect opportunity to send your favorite ghost or ghoulie a surprising treat that doesn't involve sugar. Halloween gifts can afford to be playful and often come topped off with some spooky decor. While you'd never add a fake spider to your roses in February, there's no reason not to add a bewitching element to your blooms in October. Read More about Halloween Gifts & Spooky Decor »

Sweetest Day Flowers Show Kindness

Sweetest Day has been celebrated in the Midwest for nearly 100 years, the creation of a group of businessmen in Cleveland, OH in the early 1900's. The inaugural event consisted of handing out candy and small gifts to shut-ins and orphans, and the day has evolved to include any acts of kindness - although giving candy is still entirely appropriate! We also love the idea of giving flowers, as flowers are known to increase happiness and enhance well-being. With such sweet benefits, why wouldn't you call Nanz & Kraft Florists?  Read More about Sweetest Day Flowers Show Kindness »
