DIY Fourth of July Centerpiece

4th of july party ideasThe 4th of July is almost here and if you’re looking for DIY party ideas, you’ll love this simple red, white, and blue centerpiece!

Fourth of July FlowersI’m a little obsessed with always having fresh flowers around and having fresh blooms for special occasions is a non-negotiable in my book. So when I learned about Blooms By The Boxย and their wholesale flower delivery I was really eager to try out their services. They promised fresh flowers at affordable prices and boy did they deliver! Their DIY 4th of July Backyard Party Pack arrived and was gorgeous!

My box arrived meticulously packaged (and cool!) full of ย White Cushion Mums,ย Red Fancy Carnations, and the most stunningย Dark Blue Delphiniums. I decided to put together a couple centerpieces — one for a little party decor and the other to give as a hostess gift.

DIY 4th of July Centerpieces

4th of july decorI chose two square white vases (I picked them up at the local craft store on sale for $2 each!) and I painted one side with a little chalkboard paint (this will come in to play later).

Next, I added water and flower food to each one and then made a grid on the top of the vase using scotch tape. This will provide a little structure to my arrangement (don’t worry you won’t be able to see the tape when we’re done).

4th of july decorI decided I wanted to have a bit of a color-blocking look to the arrangements so I added in sections of blooms in groups or red and white. About 6-7 flowers make a good sized grouping.

Once my groups of red carnations and white mums were in place, I inserted a blue delphinium to pull together that red, white, and blue look. I repeated for the second arrangement.

    Seriously love this! I feel like IG is full of gorgeous blooms that never appear at my local shopping market, so I’m all about offering online. Thanks for the resource!

      Right?! I’m about 90 minutes from the nearest flower mart which is not convenient. Love that these can be delivered straight to my door!
