When it comes to choosing your wedding flowers, there's a lot to learn. Every Tuesday, we'll feature all you need to know about an in-season flower. From colors and care to costs and all sorts of wedding floral design inspiration, we're your "best bud."
This week, we're showing you how to make a 4th of July centerpiece.
If you're planning a BBQ for Independence Day and need a little inspiration for your all-American decor, this simple floral arrangement is the perfect way to add a patriotic touch!
SuppliesThree white vases of varying sizes (ours were 3.5 inches tall, 5.5 inches tall, and 8 inches tall)
One large block of floral foam
Red arrangement (tall vase)
6-8 red carnations
6 red mini Gerbera daisies
Blue arrangement (medium vase)
6 blue carnations
6-8 blue cornflowers
White arrangement (short vase)
6 white mini spray roses
6-8 white carnations
Instructions1. Cut a piece of foam a few inches tall to fit inside each vase and place inside.
2. Place stems along the side of the vase to gauge the desired height and trim accordingly with wire cutters.
3. Fill each vase with the corresponding carnations, pushing the stems into the foam.
4. Use the remaining flowers to fill out the arrangement.
We love that these arrangements are so simple to create and add a fun punch of color to your 4th of July party! (And if you're not feeling the red, white, and blue, you could use the same method with flowers in different colors to create a monochromatic arrangement for any occasion!)
