The Fourth of July is a day filled with joyous nostalgia, a time evoking memories of crackling barbecues, welcome summer breezes, moments between friends and family, and awe-inspiring fireworks. It’s also a celebration, and no celebration is complete without an extra dash of pizzazz. Check out Griffin’s Floral Design’s list of why you should consider roses to spice up your Independence Day festivities.
Roses are Unexpected
Holidays are events steeped in tradition, but there’s no reason you should let your holidays run stale. Whether you buy them as a gift for a loved one or for stunning decoration at your family gathering, roses are certain to make others marvel at your ingenuity. And maybe make them a bit jealous.
Consider our off-beat selection of a dozen mixed roses. Not only are they unexpected, but they’re also deceptively perfect for the summer months! The shades of red, pink, yellow, and orange accent the season’s warm colors and embrace the months to come. If any guest is too jealous of your originality, hand them a yellow rose—it used to symbolize jealousy.
Roses are Floral Fireworks
Any Fourth of July celebration worth its merit is punctuated by a riveting display of fireworks. With their bold attitude, crisp colors, and punchy, outward bloom, roses are fireworks incarnate. They’re just more personal.
For maximum drama and theatrics matching their explosive counterparts, consider our “Hearts A-Fire” arrangement. The mingling of coral, orange, and lavender spray roses against the bright pink carnations captures the essence of this exciting holiday. Even better, guests can view these fireworks safely up close.
Roses are Patriotic
Getting roses for the Fourth of July is not just inventive and charming, it’s also practically a patriotic duty.
Few other flowers wear such a brazen committment to color. Red roses are a striking, romantic crimson. White roses evoke liquid purity and light. All other colors follow suit in their strength of beauty.
That’s why our red and white roses in our “Love’s Divine” arrangement represent unfiltered patriotism in their presentation. The roses, accompanied by white Queen Anne’s Lace, speak to the majesty of the United States’ birthday and pay tribute to the love, passion, and strength built into this country’s history. Honor that history with this, or any of our other, arrangement of roses.
