In just a few days it will be time to gather together friends and family for a day of grilling, parades and fireworks. One fantastic way to show your patriotic pride is by displaying some gorgeous flowers in the nations' colors - red, white and blue.
Red flowers are easy to come by. If you want something traditional, elegant roses will fit the bill. In fact, the rose is the national flower of the United States, so why not go all out and order a dozen?
To represent the stars on the flag, white long-stemmed lilies are a lovely option. Amaryllis are also the perfect choice for this part of your bouquet.
Blue flowers may be harder to come by, but there are still plenty of options. Many varieties of hyacinths have a blue hue, or you can pepper the arrangement with bluebells.
You'll want to make sure your flowers are proudly displayed in a thematic vase or bowl. Find something that reflects the holiday, or tie a patriotic ribbon around the base to invoke the spirit of Independence Day.
