Of all the summer celebrations, we might love the 4th of July the best. Whether attending a local parade, getting together with friends at a barbecue, or gathering under the stars for a spectacular fireworks display, the day is filled with memories from start to finish. Patriotic parties are a tradition, and the red, white and blue is everywhere you look. This year, make sure your annual event is adorned with flowers that exude the spirit of the day - after all, what party is complete without flowers?
Why Do Other Countries Celebrate July 4th? Seems a little strange that other nations, such as Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal, and Sweden have fireworks to commemorate the American holiday. The reason is that thousands of people emigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900s, and these countries hold events to attract tourists, as well as for the benefit of American troops stationed abroad.

Summer in Cambridge and Boston is a special time. We have warm days, but it is still not uncomfortable. There is a host of outdoor activities, whether you want to try sailing, exploring the Freedom Trail, or taking a bicycle tour. And extended daylight hours means that we have more time to get together with family and friends - in fact, sharing a meal in the summer is practically a tradition! Whether you prefer a barbecue at the beach pavilion or a dinner party in your backyard, Central Square Florist would like to remind you to bring along flowers! We know that gorgeous summer bouquets and centerpieces turn a normal event into a special occasion - and they also make lovely hostess gifts.
