We enjoy the holiday, getting together with friends and family, having barbecues and watching fireworks. Here in the Boston area, where there is a proud history leading back to colonial days, we celebrate Independence Day very seriously.

Flowers enhance just about every aspect of our existence, and they can definitely enhance the Fourth of July experience. There are many beautiful flowers available in red, white and blue, and your florist can help you celebrate with a custom floral design.

Welcome guests with patriotic flowers in the entry area of your home. This adorable ensemble features red roses, white and blue hydrangeas, and blue delphinium.

Thank your Fourth of July party host with a festive floral arrangement. If you’re the host, order a patriotic floral design for your centerpiece or to decorate an end table or sideboard buffet. An American flag and a patriotic ribbon are added to this floral design of red carnations, red roses, red gerberas, white roses, white snapdragons and blue statice.

This sleek hybrid design has both linear and natural growth characteristics. It includes red carnations, blue and white hydrangea and blue delphinium. I love this kind of arrangement for a mantle or sideboard buffet.

When I look at this floral arrangement, I hear the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah playing. This dramatic arrangement would look fabulous on a mantle or sideboard buffet.
