Going Green anyone?

As the summer days heat up, we are looking for a few good ways to curb our carbon footprint on the planet!

Our vase suppliers are supporting our efforts by providing the newest in guilt free glass: Eco Glass.
The line of Recycled “Eco Glass” is a complete line of recycled glass utility and specialty vases made from 100% recycled materials!

Nanz and Kraft also provides a recycle service for your used flower vases. Just bring your vase by one of our locations, and we will make sure it is recycled in the proper manner! And you receive a FREE flower just for doing so! Its one way we say thank you for helping in our initiative to keep things “green” in our area.

Glass Recycling helps in the following ways:
*Saves Energy: Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to power a 100-watt light bulb for 4 hours!
*Saves Resources: Glass Recycling causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution
* All glass jars and bottles are recyclable ( by the appropriate agency)

Thanks as always for your support of your local florist, Nanz and Kraft!

Add a fresh or permanent floral fixture to your home with Nanz & Kraft

In this economy, many of us are opting for redesign and remodeling projects in lieu of moving into a new home. When you are working with your builders and home decor, don’t forget the wonderful way flowers and silk arrangements can enhance your interiors. We have designers who can work with you in the fresh flower areas and our permanent silks design department, these are great ways to fill your space.

The feeling one gets when entering your dinner party or office function is a combination of many things. Of course, while you are the center of attention, everything around you reflects your personal taste creating an overall statement about your lifestyle.

Just as color co-coordinating and matching items are necessary to complete the harmony of design, so should your flowers. Our designers decorate around and in your settings. From adding flowers to a water pitcher, to combination designs across your dinning room table including fruit and flowers. We design to compliment and enhance your accessories while adding finishing touches where needed.

Remember, since flowers come in every size imaginable, we can create and fill in the most awkward space with a creative design that would flow beautifully. Best of all, we can duplicate almost any fresh flower or design in permanent silk displays giving you the beauty of flowers all year long at a nominal cost. The illustrations in our online gallery are for area homes that we have decorated for parties and other special events. Notice how the flowers follow the design of the room where they are used. In many cases, single cut blooms are used to accent decorations. Request an appointment with our consultants today and let us show you the difference a coordinated floral arrangement can make in your setting.

Please call our showrooms for more information on how we can help you enhance your life with flowers.

Happy Birthday America,
~ Nanz and Kraft Florists

In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.

Families often celebrate Independence Day by hosting or attending a picnic or barbecue and take advantage of the day off and, in some years, long weekend to gather with relatives. Decorations (e.g., streamers, balloons, and clothing) are generally colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades often are in the morning, while fireworks displays occur in the evening at such places as parks, fairgrounds, or town squares.
Independence Day fireworks are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner”, “God Bless America”, “America the Beautiful”, “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”, “This Land Is Your Land”, “Stars and Stripes Forever”, and, regionally, “Yankee Doodle” in northeastern states and “Dixie” in southern states. Some of the lyrics recall images of the Revolutionary War or the War of 1812.

Father’s day is just one week away, we have a fun way to celebrate Dad!

June 21 marks the day we can all sit back and celebrate the great patriarch of our family trees, Dad.

Lets reflect on what makes Father’s special…is it his quiet wisdom? Those big arms to wrap you in when you need safety? That really ugly, tattered old plaid shirt that he will not let go to Goodwill?  The way he and only he can mow the grass to look like Valhalla? Or do we love him for his grizzly unshaven look on weekends?

What ever the reasons, show him that you care , no matter where he may be! Remember, we can also ship great gourmet baskets, flowers and gifts for you, just to show Dad that you care.

If you have a Pops that is tops for fun, the dig out those old funny photographs and send them along to our Father’s Day Photo contest! We are holding a great ay to win our famous “grill basket” and a $50 gift card to Cafe Lou Lou!

Log in to our website and upload your snapshot of dear old Dad right here:

While you are there, call your siblings and Mother Dear for their shopping input and make this a Father’s day you will remember. 

Best wishes to all of the great Father’s and those who love them,

~ Nanz and Kraft Florists
