Our Favorite Ways to Commemorate America’s Independence

On the Fourth of July, we wave the American flag to commemorate our nation’s Independence and freedom that was achieved in 1776. In addition to traditional backyard cookouts with neighbors and loved ones, celebrating Independence Day is done in a myriad of ways that allow us to show our patriotism. Here at Blossom Flower Shops, the top florist in Yonkers and White Plains, we are talking about some of our favorite ways to celebrate America and honor those who have made our country one of the best.

7 Ways to Show Your Patriotism


Celebrate America’s birthday with a party, cookout, boat ride, beach day, or picnic in the park with family, friends, and neighbors. Decorate your surroundings with lots of red, white, and blue decor like streamers, garland, ribbon, plates, napkins, and flowers. Play games, indulge in treats, share laughs, and make memories in honor of our nation’s freedom.

Attend a Patriotic Parade

Wave, sing along, catch some candy, and wear your favorite patriotic outfit to celebrate Independence Day at a classic parade. Watch as decorated floats, cars, and bicycles go by with pride and patriotism and listen as marching bands and singers honor the brave men and women who fought for our freedom. This marvelous and lively tradition is unlike any other celebration.

Support a Veteran

Your local VA, neighbors, and relatives are sure to be deeply moved if a heartwarming letter of gratitude came their way this Fourth of July. Patriotic holidays often commemorate the bravery, courage, and sacrifices of those who served our country, and they deserved to be honored. Celebrating veterans by listening to stories, donating your time, and sending them a fresh flower bouquet will surely brighten their day.

Fly the Stars and Stripes

Perhaps the most symbolic tribute to our nation is the red, white, and blue stars and stripes that create the American flag. Each stitch holds significant meaning and, when flown with pride, is the most patriotic way to celebrate the Fourth of July and honor other holidays like Veterans Day and Memorial Day.

Visit a National Park or Historic Landmark

Planning a day trip or long weekend to celebrate America’s birthday is even better if a significant landmark or national park is on your itinerary. Whether you are looking for a change of scenery or seeking out exciting stories about our nation’s history, there are numerous eye-opening, breathtaking, and stunning locations all across the country waiting for you.

Shop Local & Buy American

This Fourth of July, pledge to shop small, buy local, and purchase “made in the U.S.A.” goods. These little decisions are more ways we can honor and exercise our freedom of choice, vote with our dollars, and positively impact our country’s economy. 

Display Patriotic Blooms

Flowers are always a vibrant, beautiful, and cheerful way to celebrate. For Independence Day, red, white, and blue flowers are ideal for hanging in baskets on your porch, planting in flower beds outside, and displaying on tables and counters inside your home. We love sharing patriotic floral bouquets with loved ones, party hosts, veterans, and even soldiers who lost their lives in battle by placing stems on their gravestones. Consider adding a few of these symbolic blooms to your Fourth of July flower collection:

  • Rose – America’s national flower
  • Freesias – these flowy and beautiful blooms symbolize freedom
  • Edelweiss – charming white flowers shaped like stars that signify strength and courage
  • Guernsey Lilies – unique flowers that resemble fireworks and represent freedom and good fortune
  • Black-Eyed Susans – these bright yellow star-burst-like blooms with a striking dark round center symbolize justice.

Celebrating our nation this Fourth of July and every day is easy, fun, and exciting. For the best patriotic floral arrangements and designs for any special occasion, Blossom Flower Shops is here with the freshest flowers and endless creativity.
