One of the biggest holidays of the year, Independence Day is typically celebrated with fireworks, backyard BBQs, parades, and family get-togethers. However you decide to celebrate this significant day, make sure you include patriotic flowers to make July 4th more bright, colorful, and emotionally powerful.
You may be surprised to discover certain flowers are symbolically significant in celebrating America’s historic moments. For example, red poppies and forget-me-nots symbolize fallen soldiers, nasturtiums represent patriotism and victory in war, and the universally-known rose is America’s national flower. Having fresh, beautiful, and symbolically significant blooms in your home are a great way to show your patriotism and elevate any July 4th celebration. Here at Heartfelt Florist, we have a special collection of patriotic blooms as well as ideas for how to make Independence Day more patriotic with fresh, gorgeous flowers.
Make July 4th Extra Special with Patriotic Flowers
Decorate Your Front Porch
Beautify your porch with the colors of the flag! Hang planters with red, white, and blue flowers to show your patriotic spirit while elevating your porch decoration. Or, create a red, white, and blue container garden near your entrance, along with bright red, white, and blue flower beds in your front yard.
Decorate Your Home
Brighten your kitchen, back patio, or any living space with beautiful fresh flowers in classic patriotic colors. Pick up blooms such as red roses, carnations, or red Peruvian lilies to pair with blue Irises, larkspur, and hydrangea, adding white daisies, lilies of the valley, or white carnations to round out the patriotic color trio.
Perfectly Patriotic Petals for Your Backyard BBQ
Besides red, white, and blue flowers, display blooms have patriotic meanings, like
Freesias – that symbolize freedom
Edelweiss – signifies strength and courage
Guernsey Lilies – represent freedom and good fortune
Black-Eyed Susans – symbolize justice.
Impress your friends and neighbors and delight them with your colorful collection of patriotic blooms. If you’re not the one hosting a party, then bring along some patriotic arrangements as a welcomed gift.
Patriotic Flower Arrangements to Give
If you’d like to gift a floral arrangement to a veteran or someone currently serving in the military, then you can’t go wrong with a combination of red, white, and blue blooms. Patriotic arrangements are also perfect for taking to a local VFW, a cemetery, or a community event to honor those who have served and are currently serving our country.
Wearable Patriotic Blooms
Attend an Independence Day parade in style by wearing red, white, and blue blooms on your wrist as a corsage or on your jacket as a boutonniere. Wearable patriotic blooms are also perfect for giving to current or former military personnel and spouses.
When shopping for your July Fourth celebrations, the most patriotic thing you can do is shop local. Putting money back into your community and supporting small business owners benefit our nation.
