Patriotic Posies

Are you throwing a bash for the 4th? Don't forget the flowers! You can go well beyond the usual mason jar of white daisies and really show some creativity this year. Here are some fun ideas for you-and I guarantee that flowers will make your event more special!

Using permanent botanicals is an option. This cute red lantern makes an unexpected container.

And adding flags to this hanging basket arrangement adds a patriotic touch without being over the top.

This pinwheel centerpiece is gorgeous. The red Geranium and white Hydrangea are stunning together, and the red striped container ties it all together. What fun!

A wreath is appropriate anywhere. This dried wreath incorporates varying shades of blue, and with the addition of herbs, is fragrant, too!

3 colors of Hydrangea, a triple-tier basket, a bit of moss, and voila! A stunning centerpiece in just a few minutes!

I love how this gardener has incorporated a weathered chair into this still life of Iris, Poppies and Peonies, all blooming at the same time.

And how's this for a patriotic yard? Love it!
