It’s that time of year, and entire communities are getting ready for one of the biggest celebrations of the summer! July 4th marks a day observed from sea to shining sea; when we all come together to recognize the unique freedom we enjoy in our nation. Whether you are the host of the get-together – or headed to someone else’s house for the barbecue – using patriotic florals to decorate is a great way to set the ambiance for the day. July Fourth flowers are any which exhibit the red, white and blue – and there are so many great possibilities. Red roses and carnations, white lilies or daisies, and blue delphinium or iris – Mission Viejo Florist uses them all to create beautiful tributes to celebrate our nation’s birthday.
July 4th in Mission Viejo: Spend your holiday with a full day of events, starting with the Annual Street Faire and ending with the Fireworks Spectacular.
America the Beautiful, shown above, features traditional patriotic florals – red carnations, white daisies, and blue ribbons for accents.
The History of How We Celebrate: John Adams actually proclaimed July 2 to be Independence Day, but aside from that obvious difference, his description of how we should celebrate is still valid today. “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”
A Patriotic Salute, shown above, begins with a beautiful deep blue vase. We fill it with red roses and carnations, white lilies, and blue stock flowers. This arrangement is the perfect hostess gift or can be a fantastic gift to thank the veterans in your life for their service.
When you want to express your American pride and patriotic spirit with flowers, you need to look no further than Mission Viejo Florist. We wish you and your family a safe and Happy 4th of July celebration.
