Go ahead and use a red con­tain­er with blue and white flow­ers for your July 4th par­ty. Pic­tured here are suc­cu­lent rosettes with blue hydrangea and white lisianthus.
Here is a close­up of the “red” echev­e­ria suc­cu­lent rosette. You can have cer­tain suc­cu­lents turn red if you refrain from water­ing them or keep the in a pot that is too small. Over the short term, you won’t do much dam­age to the plant an it cre­ates a neat effect.
Here is a very sim­ple idea for July 4th flo­ral dec­o­ra­tion. We took about 15 stems of very open white car­na­tions and did a small hand-tied design and secured the stems with a rub­ber band. Then, we cut the stems very short in order to fit into the short blue pail. Final­ly, we placed it on a red nap­kin to cre­ate the final “red, white and blue” flo­ral design for our July 4th party!
