We shared some easy and chic tablescape inspiration for your July Fourth celebrations, but we left one must-have off the list... Flowers.

Summer is in full bloom and we can't have an alfresco fete without fabulous florals decorating every corner, table, and planting pot. 

While tropical, neon, and brightly colored blooms are always a welcome addition to the seasonal scene, I like to keep things simple and streamlined for the Fourth of July. And a red, white, and blue color scheme helps set the ambiance for a patriotic party.

Americana-inspired bouquets are a given, but I like to keep my arrangements classic rather than kitschy. (That means, those artificial spray-dyed blue blooms need to go.)

Hydrangeas, daisies, and wild flowers keep it super easy and super affordable. Even deep purple flowers can be used in place of blue hues. Stick a flag in the middle of your vase and you've got a beautiful centerpiece.

And, of course, you can always use roses... but we prefer rosés!

Need more ideas? 

1. Place a big planter or a large bunch of loose white wild flowers in a Radio Flyer wagon.

2. Tie white and red bakery twine around the edge of a mason jar filled with blue or white hydrangeas.
