July fourth is nearly upon us – and with it all the parades, picnics, and celebrations that make it one of our favorite holidays of the year. If you are hosting the barbecue, or if you are looking for a beautiful hostess gift for those who are, look no further than Ah Sam Florist. We’ve taken the traditional red, white, and blue and transformed it into our own beautiful style that will make any gathering more gorgeous!
Did We Get it Wrong? John Adams wrote that July 2, the date the Second Continental Congress voted in Philadelphia to declare independence from Britain, would be the day that we celebrated freedom. “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America,” Adams wrote on July 3 and declared that “pomp and parade, shows, games, sports, bells, bonfires, and illuminations” should be part of the revelry. Still, July 4th has come down through history as the day to celebrate.
America the Beautiful, shown above, is an exclusive design from our creative team. Showcasing our national colors and a touch of true Americana, this arrangement of lilies, roses and hydrangea will be a sophisticated addition to your gathering.
Creating a July fourth bouquet with patriotic flowers is as easy as speaking to our designers. For instance, we love this Blissful Bouquet, shown below. White roses and carnations are joined by blue delphinium and irises – add a red ribbon or American flag for a beautiful patriotic tribute. July 4th in San Mateo: The city of San Mateo Department of Parks & Recreation presents July Fourth in the Park on July 4, 2017. The event takes place from 11 am-2 pm at the Martin Luther King Park and Pool. The event features games for both kids and adults, music, swimming, inflatables, and a cardboard boat race.
No matter your plans, if you need patriotic flowers there is only one place in town to call – Ah Sam Florist. Check out our July 4th collection here.
