Of course, you can also take part in larger events as many cities and towns host Fourth of July events and parades.

Even if you plan to make it a quiet Fourth of July celebration at home with the family, you can still decorate your home with some patriotic décor, including flowers in red, white, and blue.memorialafm3

Patriotic Flower Design Ideas

We regularly create patriotic flower arrangements for Long Beach government and civic holidays, including wreaths for cemeteries, flower garlands for parade floats, and flower arrangements for centerpieces at city events.

Our flower shop has also made many flower arrangements for local areas to use in hanging flower baskets or large vases on various streets.

You can also create your own patriotic flower arrangements with our loose flowers or ask our floral design team to put together something for your local event or party. We have many flowers in red and white as well as flowers we have dyed like stunning blue roses that make a bold and bright statement.

Fresh Fourth of July Flowers

Regardless of the heat or humidity, we make sure we are using the freshest flowers possible. When you get flowers from us to use for your Fourth of July party or event, make sure you follow the instructions for care, including using fresh water and replacing it regularly as well as adding the flower food and cutting the stems.

Before using the flowers in an event that may involve outdoors and direct sunlight, keep them in a cool, dark place for as long as possible. Then, when putting them outside, regularly mist them with water to keep their blooms and petals moist.
