The first Independence Day took place on July 4th, 1776 – although at the time, no one really knew about it. In fact, John Adams had proclaimed that July 2nd would be our nation’s birthday, and with the exception of John Hancock’s famous signature, most founding fathers would not even sign the document until August 2nd. Still, the date on the Declaration of Independence is July 4th, and so that is the day we celebrate! From coast to coast and throughout Albuquerque, people will attend picnics, parades, parties, and fireworks displays, all to commemorate the special freedoms we enjoy here in America.
Fourth of July flowers are the perfect way to add patriotic spirit to your backyard barbecue or to thank a veteran for their service. Peoples Flowers is proud to continue our tradition of providing our friends and neighbors in Albuquerque with the beautiful bouquets and arrangements that make every occasion special.
The flowers you can choose to make patriotic arrangements are many – perhaps red roses and white spider mums with blue delphinium, or red and white daisies in a deep blue vase? Whatever you choose, you can be assured that your arrangement will add a spirit and style to your gathering. If you need ideas, just check out our 4th of July collection, or give our floral designers a call.
Did You Know? The red, white and blue colors of our flag have special meaning. Red stands for sacrifice and valor, white for purity of heart and innocence, and blue for loyalty, perseverance, and justice.
