A Gigantic Explosion of Flowers for Your 4th of July Table from Schneider's Florist

Fireworks in Springfield Ohio
4th of July flowers? You better believe it! Take your Independence Day party to the next level with fresh flowers this year. Your guests will ooh and ah over the arrangements I'm showing you today.

Fireworks is my flagship design for this holiday. The name says it all. Birds of Paradise and Pin Cushion Protea, accented with Hypericum berries and Bear Grass arranged in a large globe vase. This would make a perfect finishing touch for your picnic and buffet tables.
Beat the Heat in Springfield Ohio
While you're at it, scatter a few of these firecrackers around for an extra pop. Beat the Heat is a nice size to go on your home bar or in your powder room. 

Maybe you're looking at these and thinking "I love these arrangements, you're a creative genius, but what about something more traditional?"
Honor and Glory Centerpiece in Springfield Ohio
'Murica. The Honor and Glory Centerpiece will bring tears of patriotism to your eyes. Red, white and blue flowers with Old Glory standing proud. Bald Eagles will swoop down to admire your 4th of July spread.
Red White and True in Springfield Ohio
Red, White, and True is the perfect arrangement to accent your Honor and Glory Centerpiece. Red Roses, Blue Delphinium, Baby's Breath, and other flowers arranged in a cobalt blue vase make a classic look for the season. Order several for your event and put them everywhere. 

I hope I gave you some good ideas for your 4th of July party. Next week I'll be at the AIFD Symposium in Anaheim, California. The symposium is one of the largest floral design events in the world. I'll be sure to take photos of  all of the amazing floral installations and bonus photos of Disneyland! Thanks for reading today.

Pop Up Wedding? We Can Do That! Wedding Flowers On the Fly from Schneider's Florist

Wedding traditions in the United States are changing. While large, elaborate ceremonies and receptions are still very popular, small, improvised, pop up weddings can be equally special and memorable. My readers already know our consultants can help you plan your wedding and we have fabulous wedding packages for people who want to simplify the ordering process, but what about a pop up wedding?

We can do that! We have created bridal bouquets on the fly for same day wedding ceremonies with very short notice. 

Need a location? Talk to us! You can get married right here. We're in the process of restoring a room on the second floor with twenty foot ceilings, a giant fireplace, and beautiful north light from towering stained glass windows. This room could easily accommodate an improvised ceremony and a handful of guests. 

We can announce your wedding on our gigantic marquee sign out front. Parking and a restroom are available. We can even chill your champagne in our cooler! All of this and more can be accomplished with very short notice for a very reasonable price.

Our clients give us the best ideas. Visit the shop or call us at 937-323-4634 to discuss your plan, or lack of a plan, to see what we can do for you. Thanks for reading, see you next week.
