One of the biggest celebrations of the summer season is July 4th, a time when the entire country comes together to celebrate the unique freedoms in our nation. Whether you are hosting the party or headed to someone else’s gathering, the addition of patriotic flowers is a great way to set the mood. July Fourth flowers can be comprised of any blooms which exhibit the red, white and blue – and the possibilities for gorgeous bouquets are many!

They were ignited over Philadelphia and the celebration also included bonfires and bells, likely inspired by John Adam’s proclamation regarding the holiday. “It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shews, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”
