How to Style Flowers for the Fourth of July

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Fireworks won’t be the only beautiful thing in sight on Independence Day. Fourth of July flowers are the perfect way to elevate any celebration or table setting. While lights in the sky may only last for a few seconds, your fresh and festive Fourth of July flowers will last for much longer.

Are you decorating for an outdoor barbeque or family gathering? You can combine many of the pieces you already have at home with fresh flowers to create something special for this Independence Day!

How to Incorporate Flowers into July Fourth Decor

Start with the basics. A red, white, and blue color scheme makes it easy to pull from your existing interior decor pieces. Try matching your white dishes with red or blue table linens like a runner, tablecloth, or placemats. You can also tuck small American flags in with your napkins and cutlery for a festive touch.

A sensational Fourth of July bouquet will create a cohesive and polished look for your celebration. If you’re serving a plated meal, you can use your bouquet as a centerpiece.

Maybe you're planning to serve your backyard barbeque buffet-style? In this case, use a floral arrangement to anchor your serving table near the plates, napkins, and cutlery. An eye-catching display of flowers helps tell your guest where to start.

Fourth of July Flowers for Brunch

Start your patriotic celebrations with a mid-morning brunch. Festive foods might include pancakes or waffles with blueberries, strawberries, and fresh cream. If you’re entertaining your family or friends for brunch, they’ll appreciate the extra attention to detail.

Center your table settings around a celebratory collection of fresh florals. Try using a ginger jar as a vase to create a classic but surprising centerpiece of fresh flowers. You can also wrap your glass vases with fabric or caning to add more color and texture. White linens and mini American flags will take your traditional brunch decor to a new level of civic engagement.

Fourth of July Blooms for Backyard Barbecues

Keep your backyard barbecue festive and fun with plenty of Fourth of July decor. Anything in a red or blue gingham print will exude a classic Americana theme. Bonus points if you’re serving apple pie and ice cream.

For a casual gathering, arrange your bouquet in a watering can, a glass or ceramic pitcher from your kitchen. A simple event does not mean skipping out on the holiday spirit!

If your chosen vase feels a bit too big, or if you don’t want to put water directly into the watering can, here’s a tip!

Find a jar that comfortably fits inside your chosen vase. Then, carefully set your jar inside the vase and surround it with grocery bags, extra table linens, or kitchen towels. Now you can arrange your flowers, fill the jar with water, and no one will be the wiser!

Fresh Fourth of July Flowers for Alfresco Dining

If your July Fourth plans include eating a meal outside, fresh flowers are a must. There’s almost nothing better than good company and a great meal. Especially when you get to enjoy them on a perfect summer evening.

If alfresco dining is a part of your standard summer routine, adding a bouquet of flowers will elevate your gathering, making it even more memorable. Special touches like fresh flowers, tea lights, and music will encourage your guests to linger after a meal--at least until it’s time for fireworks.
