Your Fourth of July celebration could begin and end with a real bang when you use flowers to accent and decorate the day. If you're thinking you need to stick with the traditional red, white, and blue carnation arrangements you normally see on Independence Day, think again! Flowers come in so many varieties and they're so easy to customize to the occasion that the possibilities are endless.

If you're planning on throwing a Fourth of July celebration, contact your local florist for help in choosing the perfect floral arrangements and other accents to make your party memorable and your guests feel special. When you decorate with fresh flowers, it shows your guests that you've taken the time to think about how you can make the surroundings beautiful and enjoyable for them. Your florist can make doing so easier than you ever thought possible.

Your florist is a professional designer who is able to create just the pieces you need to accent and beautify your party location. And, he or she will also have unique, fun ideas that you could use as party favors, to recognize special guests, and to use as centerpieces.

Because flowers come in so many different colors, you'll have a huge selection to choose from even if you decide to go with the traditional red, white, and blue theme. Although your florist will be able to show you many flowers he or she has available, here are some flower varieties in the traditional colors to get you started:

  • Red Flowers: Roses, tulips, carnations, anthurium, gladiolus, freesia, lily, gerbera, chrysanthemum.

  • White Flowers: Asters, gladiolus, freesia, hydrangea, lily, orchid, chrysanthemum, rose, snapdragons.

  • Blue Flowers: Delphinium, gladiolus, liatris, irises.

    All these beautiful red, white, and blue flowers can be used in many different ways for your party. Your florist can create small, simple centerpieces, or large and elaborate pieces to place in more spacious areas. You can also ask your florist to make special napkin rings or provide single stems to tuck into your napkins or place at each setting. These can double as party favors that your guests can take home. And, since the Fourth of July is a day to celebrate the freedom of our country, you might also consider having corsages and boutonnieres made to honor guests who served in the military.

    Talk to your florist about the endless possibilities for using flowers in your Fourth of July celebration. He or she is sure to have many great ideas to suit your needs and light up your party more brightly than the fireworks in the sky.
