Our Favorite Ways to Celebrate the Fourth of July

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 Casas Adobes Flower Shop, the top florist in Tucson, 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!

Spending time with loved ones is making memories is one of the best ways to celebrate Independence Day. Whether you host a party in the park or attend a backyard cookout with friends and neighbors, decorate the space with the colors of the American flag. Red, white, and blue flowers, ribbons, balloons, garland, banners, and down to paper plates and table cloths are wonderful ways to commemorate our patriotism and freedom.

Attend a Patriotic Parade

Fourth of July parades are a magnificent tradition that many Americans look forward to every year. While some parades commemorate the bravery of our soldiers with marching bands, others decorate bicycles and classic cars with red, white, and blue streamers. Veterans often march in the parade while onlookers wave, clap, and show their patriotism.

Support a Veteran

Donate your time or services to assist and honor the veterans in your community. This is a brilliant and generous way to show your gratitude and patriotism. Send handwritten “thank you” letters, flowers, or gift baskets to veterans in your family, around your neighborhood, or at the local VA as a way to commemorate the Fourth of July and other patriotic holidays.

Fly the Stars and Stripes

The most symbolic way to celebrate Independence Day is by waving or hanging the American flag. With red and white stripes representing the 13 original colonies and 50 white stars filling the blue background symbolizing each state, this is merely the beginning of the great significance this flag holds. As such, it is crucial to always be respectful and follow the “rules” of flying our country’s stars and stripes.

Visit a National Park or Historic Landmark

Immerse yourself in our country’s beauty and history by taking a trip to visit a National Park, landmark, or monument this Fourth of July. Travel with friends and family for an exciting day of adventure and stories that shaped America, and support these locations that often receive little funding.

Shop Local & Buy American

This Independence Day, pledge to buy local, shop small businesses, and purchase American-made goods. These small steps can be a phenomenal way to exercise your freedom, vote with your dollars, and have an incredible impact on our nation’s economy.

Display Patriotic Blooms

As a festive summer holiday, what better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with beautiful, patriotic blooms? Gardens surrounding your home, hanging flower pots on your porch, and dining tables and counters inside are just waiting to be adorned with red, white, and blue blooms. Send an uplifting arrangement to veterans and their families or place a sweet floral bouquet on a soldier’s grave to show your appreciation, gratitude, and patriotism.
