Most people think of cookouts, hotdogs, parades, and fireworks when the 4th of July holiday comes around, but flowers? Perhaps not so much. But, you’ll be surprised to know that some flowers are intricately linked with the history of our country and how fallen soldiers, war, freedom, and independence are honored.
For example, red poppies and forget-me-nots have long represented fallen soldiers, nasturtium flowers symbolize patriotism and victory in war, and the red rose is America’s national flower. So, along with the flying flags, and red, white, and blue decor, make sure you also pick up a fresh, beautiful arrangement of flowers to show your patriotism and elevate your July 4th celebration. Here at Toblers Flowers, we have a specially curated collection of patriotic blooms as well as how to incorporate flowers into your patriotic festivities.
How to Make Independence Day Extra Special with Flowers
Spruce Up Your Front Porch with Patriotic Blooms
Put hanging planters full of red, white, and blue flowers on your front porch, or create a container garden with flowers in these same colors. It’s a great way to naturally decorate your home in patriotic colors as well as enhance your entryway.
Decorate Your Home
Decorate your kitchen, back patio, or any room with the beauty of fresh flowers in classic patriotic colors. Choose red florals such as roses, carnations, or Peruvian lilies to pair with blue Irises, larkspur, or blue hydrangea, accented with white daisies, lilies of the valley, or white carnations for a fun burst of poppin’ patriotic blooms.
Perfectly Patriotic Blooms for Your Backyard BBQ
Besides a red, white, and blue flower color combo, you can also showcase blooms that have a deeper, patriotic meaning, such as the below flowers and what they symbolize:
Freesias – freedom
Edelweiss – strength and courage
Guernsey Lilies – freedom and good fortune
Black-Eyed Susans – justice.
Friends and neighbors will be impressed with your thoughtful and beautiful collection of patriotic blooms.
Patriotic Flower Arrangements to Give
If you want to give a flower arrangement to a veteran or service member, you can’t go wrong with a combination of red, white, and blue blooms. Patriotic arrangements are also perfect for gifting to local VFWs or a community event honoring those who have served and are currently serving our country.
Wearable Patriotic Blooms
Enhance your outfit in an appropriately patriotic way by wearing a corsage or boutonniere of red, white, and blue blooms. Wearable flowers are also great gifts for current or former military personnel and spouses who may be at a celebration with you.
When shopping for your patriotic party items, make sure to shop local. Putting money back into your community by supporting small business owners is one of the most patriotic things you can do. For all your celebratory floral occasions or “just because” moments, Toblers Flowers is the best place for the freshest, longest-lasting blooms.
