We’re getting ready for 4th of July and I figured many of you charmers would be throwing your own parties, so I invited Erin, of White Fig Designs, here to give some tips for creating a 4th of July flower arrangement at home. Flowers are my go-to decor and Erin is a flower genius. Check out her tips on creating the best 4th flowers for your 4th of July table setting!
Here are the flowers we used to create our arrangements. Give yourself a variety to make something interesting with different textures and size flowers.
Large Red Flowers – Dahlia
Small Blue flowers – Corn Flowers
Small White Flowers – Scabiosa
Large White Flower – Lithansus
Greens – Eucalyptus and Oregano
Tall Branch – Mock Orange
First, start with taping your vase to hold the flowers in place. Then add the flowers in, the tape will help hold the shape of your arrangement!
When you create the arrangement, Erin says to think of it as a triangle shape. It can be angled or the point can be at the top, like 3D, but always create the three points.
Raising the arrangement higher will help when creating the shape of it.
Erin also used herbs in her arrangements to make them smell good. You can also use herbs as a bug repellent! Add in herbs like lavender, lemon balm and basil to keep bugs away from the table.
