4th of July Celebrations in San Diego

One of our favorite summer holidays is the 4th of July because there are so many city celebrations with fireworks and festivities to ignite the patriotism in all of us plus there are many picnics and barbecues that bring friends, family, and neighbors together. This is also a very important holiday for us because it reminds us of how hard our ancestors fought for their independence and freedom.  The fireworks and the celebrations are one way to remind us of what we have in this country and how grateful we are to enjoy such freedoms.

Celebrating the Fourth of July with Flowers

Beyond flags, fireworks, and streamers, the Fourth of July is a reminder of our freedom as a nation and as individuals. It is a special holiday that is often celebrated with parades, parties, and picnics. This makes it a great opportunity to use flowers as part of the decorations and enjoy the natural beauty all around us. Decorating with Flowers The beauty of flowers is that they often can become the decorations thanks to their colorful and patriotic color palette. This includes many flowers in red and white, including roses, carnations, lilies, daisies and tulips. Flowers can also be dyed blue to add to the patriotic palette of Fourth of July flower arrangements. Of course, not all flowers have to be red, white, and blue to befit an Independence Day bash. You can use vases and ribbons in red, white, and blue as well as add pinwheels or miniature firework rockets or stars on sticks within the patriotic flower arrangements.
