DIY 4th of July Centerpiece using Plants

4th of July parties call for nature-inspired, red, white, and blue arrangements — or even just red! This is where lovely geraniums come in, or even petunias, for an easy DIY 4th of July centerpiece this year.

Red is stunning and beautiful.

You can always accessorize red flowers with blue or white napkins and you’re set.

How about an alfresco sit-down dinner this year using what’s already in your yard?

I’ll be bringing this one simple pot to the center of the table.

At a recent dinner I attended, they used the galvanized garden containers and planted geraniums along with other greenery, right in the pot.

If you place votive candles along with the larger candles on your fresh white-starched tablecloth, they’ll cast a warm glow over the arrangement, especially if you’re entertaining at dusk.

Have you thought ahead to using fresh “red” or blue? flowers from your yard for the 4th of July this year?

  1. I love this! I’m bad at decorations so I love tutorials such as this one.

  2. What a simple yet elegant idea! Very pretty! Happy Week end to you =O)

  3. Red geraniums are always perfect for the 4th of July! But, I generally scour the nearby fields for Queen Anne’s Lace, Chicory, and wild Daisies. And anything else that’s blooming and beautiful. For fun I often throw an American flag in the arrangement. 4th of July arrangements are the most fun. It’s when my ‘country’ side comes out….as do the assortment of red, white, and blue napkins and table cloths. Your post was just what I needed to get thinking about hosting a July 4th partay!

  4. Our deck and gazebo boxes are planted with red geraniums and white petunias, so clean and fresh looking. We will be using red, white and blue plates and napkins for the 4th with blue tableclothes. We will be using natural material baskets to hold food platters for serving a family style dinner. Happy weekend to all!

  5. Hi Sandy,

    I just love this idea! Natural centerpieces always look so much nicer than a lot of store bought nick-nacks.

    Here in Texas we have a lot of salvia that has beautiful blue flowers which would be perfect for a centerpiece. You have given me such a good idea! :-) I am having the whole clan over on the 4th, so anywhere I can save on table settings and use what I have is always a bonus. That way I can put the bulk of my money into the food…always a good thing! :-)


  6. Love it! Simple and elegant, it makes the table.

  7. We’re all about red and white here in Canada – it’s so easy to put together a Canada Day celebration (July 1st). I like to use geraniums in white pots on gingham tablecloths – so homey and fresh. And it’s raspberries and vanilla ice cream to keep the theme going!
