Meaningful Ways to Celebrate Your Patriotism

The 4th of July is a day to wave the American flag and celebrate the independence of our nation that was achieved over 200 years ago in 1776. Most people like to celebrate this holiday with backyard BBQs amongst friends and family. If you’re looking for a few other ideas to show your patriotism, though, then you’ve come to the right place. The floral experts at   The Blossom Shop, have put together a list of fun, easy, and meaningful ways to celebrate this country every day of the year!

7 Meaningful Ways to Show Your Patriotism


Gather with friends, neighbors, and family to celebrate the 4th with plenty of food, drinks, and red, white, and blue decor. Along with festive tableware, streamers, banners, and flags, include several fresh floral arrangements with red, white, and blue flowers to elevate the patriotism and prestige of the party.

Attend a Patriotic Parade

Towns across the nation traditionally hold Independence Day parades to celebrate veterans and service members. Take your family to see the parade and watch the spectacle of patriotic people and floats go by. You’ll be dazzled and inspired.

Support a Veteran

Volunteer your time or services to help veterans in your community. Or, you can thank them for their service by giving them a beautiful and patriotic flower arrangement or gift basket. If you don’t know any veterans, contact your local VA facility to find out how you can assist veterans and their families.

Fly the Stars and Stripes

Fly the American flag to show your patriotism. Hang it high and hang it properly. The American flag should fly above all other flags, should not touch the ground, and should be illuminated if displayed at night.

Visit a National Park or Historic Landmark

America’s National Parks are some of the most amazing and beautiful natural resources in the world. Our national landmarks and monuments commemorating natural wonders and historically important sites are also impressive and bound to fill you with American pride. Often operating on a shoe-string budget, you can support our national parks and landmarks by visiting them, joining a Friends of the Park organization, or donating to a specific park.

Shop Local & Buy American

Support your community by shopping locally-owned businesses and Made-in-America products as often as possible. Putting money back into your local economy is one of the most patriotic things you can do.

Display Patriotic Blooms

Plant or hang red, white, and blue flowers in your front yard to show patriotism and spruce up your entryway. For the inside of your home, or for a patriotic party, choose from the below blooms which carry patriotic-specific meanings:

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

For all your 4th of July celebrations or any occasion that calls for flowers, The Blossom Shop is the place to go for the freshest, and longest-lasting, high-quality blooms.
