Garden Fresh Produce and Flowers for Your 4th of July Celebration
Bring a bit of homegrown flavor and beauty to your 4th of July Celebration.
Harvest and serve red, white and blue fruits and vegetables from your garden and containers. Red or white beets and radishes, red greens, strawberries, cherries, purple carrots, and blueberries are just a few edibles that fit the bill.
Create colorful appetizers, salads and desserts with your harvest. Serve them up in a patriotic star or flag pattern or on a red, white or blue dish to complete the patriotic theme.
Pick a few colorful blooms from the garden as well. Combine red, white and blue flowers in a plain vase or display your best blossoms in a patriotic vessel.
Supplement your harvest and bouquets with a visit to your local farmers market if needed. Then make a note to add a few fun colors to your garden for next year’s celebration.
