The Fourth of July is all about independence, patriotism and celebrating the birthday of the United States. Whether you live in the state of Texas or somewhere else in the country, you are probably already looking forward to getting together with your friends and family, enjoying a backyard barbecue and attending a local fireworks show.
If you are looking for a way to make your Fourth of July celebration even more special, you need look no further than the fresh flowers on your dining room table. Whether you pick up a fresh bouquet on your way to the backyard barbecue or just grab a few blooms from your existing arrangement, there are plenty of ways to incorporate fresh flowers into your Fourth of July celebration.
Create a Fourth of July Flavored Centerpiece
Whether you are enjoying a cookout in the backyard or hosting a formal dinner party to celebrate the Fourth of July, fresh flowers can make the occasion even more special. If you are hosting a cookout or barbecue for your friends and family, use fresh flowers to create a patriotic centerpiece. The kids will have endless fun arranging their favorite red, white and blue blossoms and creating cardboard fireworks to make the picnic table look both festive and patriotic.
If you are having friends and family over for a formal Fourth of July dinner party, you can use fresh flowers to create an elegant and beautiful centerpiece. Just grab your best crystal bowl, fill it with cold water and give your flowers a new home.
Decorate Your Fireworks in Style
The Fourth of July is all about fireworks, but you can incorporate fresh flowers into the celebration. If you plan to set off your own fireworks at home, intersperse a few fresh flowers with the boxes of sparklers, black snacks, fire pops and other firecrackers.
Your guests will be suitably impressed when they see your patriotic floral fireworks display. They will love the time and the care you took creating it, and it will make your homegrown fireworks show all the more special.
Create a Patriotic Gift Basket
The Fourth of July is a great time to give gifts to those you love. If you are looking for a suitably patriotic present, try creating a patriotic gift basket filled with your favorite American foods, a local bottle of wine and other goodies to delight your friends.
You can use your patriotic gift basket as a host or hostess gift if you are attending a Fourth of July celebration at the home of a family member or friend. Whether you are stopping by your neighbor's house for a simple backyard barbecue or attending a formal Independence Day dinner party at your boss' house, your patriotic gift basket will be a big hit.
The Fourth of July is the perfect time to celebrate family, friends and love of country. If you are already putting your Fourth of July plans together, be sure to bring plenty of fresh flowers to the party.
