Red, White and Beautiful

Fireworks, barbecue, and lots of fun! July is only days away, and you know what that means: it’s almost time to celebrate the Fourth of July. The holiday celebrates America’s birth, and history; it’s a day to reflect on our patriotism and spend time with friends and family.

We can’t think of a better way to ring in the Fourth of July than with fresh floral bouquets that showcase the red, white, and blue.

That’s why we at Cole’s Flowers are offering a special selection of patriotic flowers this year, just in time for the holiday.

Red, White and BeautifulUSA Fresh Floral Bouquet

Our ‘Red, White, and Beautiful’ arrangement features Red Gerberas, White Avalanche Alstroemeria, Blue Delphinium, White Stock, and Misty Blue Limonium. They come tastefully displayed in a blue vase, with a patriotic ribbon attached. And they’re a must for any Fourth party or gathering you’re throwing.

Star-Spangled Style

 If you’re throwing a timeless Fourth of July celebration, we give you… ‘Star-Spangled Style.’ This sleek arrangement includes blue delphinium, red roses, and white ‘Fuji’ spider mums. The tall glass rectangular vase offers a chic look, that is both patriotic and pretty.

Liberty Bouquet

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is what we honor on the Fourth of July. And our ‘Liberty Bouquet’ joins in that effort, with a fountain of Miniature Red Spray Roses, Red Tulips, White Lilies, Blue Iris, Blue Delphinium, and Red Roses pouring out of a red gathering vase.

American Themed Fresh Floral BouquetsPatriotic Memorial

 And of course, the Fourth of July is also a day of remembrance, for those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom and families. That’s why we offer the ‘Patriotic Memorial’ arrangement to those honoring the loss of a loved one on this special day. Its red, white, and blue foliage in a solemn white vase is a touching tribute to the veterans and patriots who gave their all for America.

For the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, purchase a flower arrangement that celebrates America! For more information on our patriotic flower arrangements, contact Cole’s Flowers today!

Below are a few of our holiday floral arrangements we are featuring in December!

Glitzy Gatsby Arrangement 

Worthy of a star-studded meeting or red carpet event, the concept behind the Glitzy Gatsby Arrangement was born from a longing for ritzy regalia, the glamorous lifestyle, and the rich and famous.  Your best friend will lust over the delicate extravagance of white roses, snapdragons, and golden fern “feathers” layered over white cushion poms and other show-stopping touches.

Floral Bing

Floral Bling shimmers with the colors of softly falling snow and will glow like a sparkling snow globe filled with childlike wonder on any table it is placed on. This bouquet includes fuji mums, mini carnations, and green hypericum blanketing a cluster of silver ornaments and silver tapers.

Alabaster Roses Arrangement

Alabaster Roses is the style of bouquet a bride in a fairy tale dream would walk down the aisle with. Arranged in a clear ginger vase are an assortment of pastel-colored roses that create the perfect wedding scheme, seeded Eucalyptus, and misty blue Limonium.

Blissful Bells of Ireland Bouquet

This winter bouquet is almost too beautiful to touch as it looks like an architecturally designed work of art! The Blissful Bells of Ireland Bouquet captures the changing colors of an Irish countryside before the winter season makes its dash. Contained within a red ming bowl are galax leaves, the bells of Ireland, red Gerberas, and white roses.

You can create your own personalized winter floral arrangement or choose from our more delicate designs at Cole’s Flowers!
