Patriotic Planter

Are you ready for Independence Day celebrations?  

When shopping for container plants this year, our daughter said these Cherry Red Angelonia made her think of fire crackers. 

I had to agree and they became the 'red' part of our Patriotic Planter.

This white euphorbia seems reminiscent of sparklers.

We have a fun stash of pin wheels in the toy room.  The shimmery silver and blue one hopped in the middle.

For now, the planter is nestled inside the greenhouse so it can fatten up just a bit.  By July 4, these plants will be nice and full!  On Independence Day, it will be a centerpiece for our backyard picnic!

Tomorrow, I will begin co-hosting a month long link party for all things patriotic.  If you have time, I'd love for you to join the fun!

  1. Red white and blue are great combos for a planter. I love the short size of your terra cotta pot. You often do not see them in this shape. Happy Summer.

  2. I'd be happy to join up, thank you! As I create a few more patriotic themed posts, I'll swing back by, too. I'll reload this page and try and pin some of your photos out to Pinterest. Not loading at present.

    Happy Wednesday evening to you and Happy June 1st tomorrow,
    Barb :)

  3. What a lovely way to create your own centerpiece for your picnic. The pin wheel adds such a fun pop to the planters. Pinning and sharing.

  4. Marci, Love your planter! No doubt it will be full and beautiful for your centerpiece on the 4th!

  5. Cute idea! I love flowers, summer, and red, white, and blue!

  6. Cute! I love the pin wheel. I have a couple in my planters outside... No flowers yet, though... I do love your Cherry Red Angelonia. They're so pretty!

  7. The pin wheel is the perfect addition to the planter.

  8. I love your pictures and I believe we should all show our patriotism in every way we can and what more beautiful way than through flowers. Visiting #GoingGreenLinky Have a healthy, happy & blessed day.

  9. What a great idea. Never thought to colour scheme my planters. Tend to be more random, but that is me. This is going to look wonderful for your Independence day. #PoCoLo

  10. Great idea! I love the idea of color schemed planters. Thanks for linking up to #HomeMattersParty

  11. I'm sure they'll be gorgeous by July 4th!

  12. I could pinch this idea for either France, where I live, or the UK where I hail from as both have red white and blue flags!

    Thank you so much for linking up to #GoingGreen and I hope you'll pop over for the next one which opens on July 3rd 💚
