5 Tips for Decorating This Independence Day

Posted by Nancy's Floral on 24th Jun 2020

The Fourth of July is just around the corner. While celebrations may look a bit different this year due to COVID-19, our Portland flower delivery is here to help you decorate for your socially distanced party!

Here at Nancy’s Floral, we serve clients throughout all of Portland metro with flower delivery, flower bouquets, gift baskets, plants, and so much more. If you’re planning for an upcoming Independence Day celebration, then make sure to do so with your local florist in mind! Schedule flower delivery in Portland today and get ready for a red, white, and blue extravaganza.

Don’t Forget the Entry

The front porch, patio, or walkway is the first thing your friends, family, and other guests will see upon arriving at your home. Make it shine! From DIY red, white, and blue wreaths to professional wreaths from a Portland florist, your door should have a pop of color that greets your guests. Line your walkway with flowers, colorful potted plants, flags, lanterns, and more to make your entry hospitable and colorful.

Flags, Banners, & Bunting — Oh My!

Any fence, wall, tree, patio, or other areas that aren’t lined with flags, banners, or bunting is a missed opportunity! There are only so many times a year that you can let all the flags fly, and Independence Day is certainly the best time to do so! Find or make bunting and flag banners and hang them up to add dimension and color to an area without blocking walkways or views.

All Things Floral

You are reading a florist’s blog, after all, so you can only expect us to talk about flowers, bouquets, wreaths, and flower delivery! Here in the Portland metro area, Nancy’s Floral is your source for, well, all things floral! This Fourth of July, we recommend you order flower delivery ahead of time so you have all the bouquets and flowers you need for centerpieces, entryways, and your garden.

Our America the Beautiful bouquet features red roses, white Asiatic lilies, white alstroemeria, blue statice, and red carnations to help your centerpieces shine. This particular flower delivery comes with a small U.S. flag peeking out of the flowers and is held inside a cobalt blue glass cube. Be sure to also check out our entire red, white, and blue flower collection.

Tip: Add flags, pinwheels, and paper rockets to any of your homemade flower bouquets. You can also add festivity easily with red, white, and blue flower pots.

Choose Decor That Sparkles

Not all that glitters is gold, and we’re looking at you, sparklers! No Fourth of July celebration is complete without some sparklers to light up the night. Instead of having them waiting nearby, though, go ahead and make them part of your decor! Tie up groups of three with festive ribbons, incorporate them into place settings, place them in your flower bouquets, or find some other creative way to show them off!

Tip: If you’re going to be lighting fireworks and not just sparklers, be sure to check with your local county and city regulations.

Let There Be Light

Finally, be sure to incorporate plenty of light into your decor. Yes, flower delivery, flags, wreaths, and more will add color and lighten up the environment, but we’re talking about actual light here. Find lanterns, candles, paper lanterns, outdoor hanging lights, holiday light strands, and more to add as much light as possible to the space and create an ambiance you’ll love. Sure, we may have long days full of light right now, but with what a fun party this will be, it’s sure to go well into the night! You could even place cute candles (even battery-powered ones!) next to flowers, centerpieces, and more so that your guests see your beautiful decor all night long.
