can you please describe what you mean by country? I helped a couple last year to decorate theirs country, and we did a picnic theme. Give me a little more information on your ideas of what you would like to see when you walk into the room, and I will see what I can help you come up with.

I think you should get these little white pickett fence holders that are in a circular shape and put your watermelon colored flowers in the holders. That would be really cute.

I saw the cutest piece in Southern Living Magazine, from a couple months ago, and they did flower arrangements in the aluminum soup cans, cleaned of the labels, that had hydrangeas in them. They also added succulents and fruit, like blackberry vines and nectarines, which I didn’t like, but the cans were very unique and would go well with a country theme. I think hydrangeas are very nice for that purpose, also sunflowers are a country flower. You could do pink ranuncules or peonies though.



I also like the daisies and spray roses in this arrangement, it is the last one on the page. You could DIY for cheaper if you have someone handy with flowers. It would also be easy to do a similar thing with the ribbon and those flowers in a small cylinder vase.

Well for an idea to throw out(or two) you could get small vases with a smaller glass inside of that with a candle so then between the two glasses(the candle one and the outer one) put the color you want of something to separate both glasses. Like rocks , beads ribbons, anything I guess you can think of!
Another one my sis went to a wedding and came back with a center piece and I’m going to describe it as well as I can so bare with me! If you took a glass bowl and folded the top rim down to where the bottom of the bowl is. So now if it’s on the table there’s still a bowl to it but now you can go under it and stuff it. The thing she has is like a beaded stiff thing that circles around the bowl. And there was a floating candle in each one. I’m sorry if this confused you! I tried at least to help!!!!

I think centerpieces for a 4th of July wedding should be simple and traditional – such as groups of small American flags, tied together or use small colored vases to hold three to five miniature flags. Cover tables with blue cloths and tie red ribbons around white candles as centerpieces.

Why not find out what flowers will be in season for your wedding, and then do a different loose floral arrangement containing in season flowers for each table. I did this for my wedding reception. Using seasonal flowers in my color scheme I had the florist do a different ‘loose’ arrangement for each table, and the flowers were arranged in ‘found’ vintage pressed glass vases (she and I found vases at charity shops, vintage stores, etc). So, each table had an unique floral arrangement and vase. I got loads of compliments!

Carved watermelons for the main part and skewers of melon balls and small white flowers sticking out from them. It will match your colors, look fabulous and the melon ball skewers can be eaten during dessert for extra fun.
