When thinking of the right flowers to bring to a 4th of July BBQ or event, there are a few things to take into account before making your decision. Is this an outdoor or indoor event? Will there be active sports or children at this event? The tone of the event sets the tone for the type of 4th of July arrangement you bring.
Flowers in Baskets
If the 4th of July event to which you are going is an outdoor event, then an arrangement in a basket, rather than a vase, is a better choice, especially if there will be activities or lots of children. Flowers arranged in a basket generally sit lower, so have a lower center of gravity, and are less prone to being accidentally knocked over. Further, if they are knocked over, you don’t risk broken glass everywhere, like you do with an arrangement in a glass vase.
Arrangements that are Edible
Flowers in Your Inbox!
While we are familiar with the delicious fruit-filled arrangements that many love on hot summer days, there are also some great arrangements made of fresh herbs which not only offer up a beautiful fragrance while sitting in the summer sun, but can be used at barbecue events! If you keep the beautiful arrangement barbecue-side while you prepare food, you or the host can just reach over and pluck off a few pieces of fresh herbs to make your Independence Day dishes even more delicious!
The Novelty Bouquet
If the celebration you are throwing, or to which you are going, is going to be complete with some fun games of all-American sports, there are some great bouquets that are sports-themed. Whether you will be rounding up a fun game of football or baseball, the sports-themed arrangement sets the tone for a fun event. Of course, if you are going to a 4th of July event with some of your old college friends, then an arrangement that sports the colors of your alma mater (link to our article) are the perfect way to go!
Bringing flowers to a 4th of July BBQ or event is a great way to surprise the host, and will bring an added fun and festive element to your event!
