Independence Day falls on a Wednesday this year, but that mid-week date won’t put a damper on the celebrations. The City of Albuquerque is hosting its annual fireworks show and concert while people all over New Mexico are planning their own parties. Whether you’re having a small gathering or big grilling shindig, the fun is in decorating for the occasion.
Flowers as Firecrackers
Hot, dry weather and restrictions on home fireworks doesn’t mean your July 4th party has to look dull. You can safely bring the sizzle and spark inside through artful and exuberant floral arrangements. Check out the appropriately-named Dazzler bouquet. Reds, yellows, pinks and purples burst forth from a clear vase. Use this as a centerpiece at your party and bring the feel of fireworks indoors.
Top Flowers for the 4th
Peoples Flower Shops carries a wide range of summer flowers that will awe your Independence Day guests and visually light up your party. What better way to capture the season than with sunflowers? Bursts of yellow petals mimic the halo of sparkling fireworks expanding in the air. They bring cheer and happiness to any gathering and will put a enthusiastic exclamation point on your Independence Day decorations.
Star-shaped lilies are a exhilarating way to mirror the sprightly colors we associate with the 4th of July. Combine them with roses and bright Gerbera daisies in the Just Happy Bouquet. The reds and oranges in this arrangement are a lively way to light up your party and get guests in the mood for a fun time.
