Fall In Love With The 4th of July

Show your love of country this 4th of July and put some roses on your holiday table.

Patriotism has a lot of romance built in; we are inspired and moved by our country’s rich history and feel genuine love for our fellow Americans on this quintessential American holiday. Neubauer’s Flowers thinks that along with your flags and red, white and blue bunting decorating the front porch, a gorgeous display of vibrant red roses is also in order.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream of Flowers

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows/Where oxlips and the nodding violet grow/Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine/With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream makes much of the season’s flowers (see above), and it’s not hard to understand why. Summer brings so many blossoms to the peak of loveliness, and it does the same for our vegetable gardens and our fruits. This makes it the perfect time to host a dinner party or any such gathering that takes its inspiration from June’s easy elegance, it’s sense of romance and sensuality. We here at Neubauer’s Flowers aren’t talking a backyard BBQ (though those are great); no, we mean a casually sophisticated event that is lit by candlelight or moonlight. Where the table is laden with platters of salmon, dishes of ceviche, cups of sorbet. Where the bright flavors of summer are captured in food and in flowers.
