New! Show your Patriotism Every Day
★ Patriotic Invitations
New for 2014!
Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle patriotic stamps. Please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required. If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.
★ Patriotic Flower Arrangements and Centerpieces
Whether you are hosting a get together or attending one, celebrate the spirit of freedom with a bouquet of red, white and blue!
This is so frustrating — we must apologize – we cannot keep up with the constantly changing floral links so rather than continue to send you to places that no longer exist, we have decided to just post pictures for inspiration and recommend you check out the current selection at our “go to” florists!
★Patriotic Mylar Centerpieces
For an affordable yet festive centerpiece, combine mylar centerpieces with balloons, stuffed animals, or fresh picked garden flowers.

Do a patriotic good deed. Help de-litter your local park or seashore. “I believe my children will remember how they helped do things that are good for others, like clean up the beach, more than just watching the parade and fireworks,” says Wendy Griffiths, who this weekend plans to take her three daughters out with a garbage bag.
Hold a red, white and blue water balloon fight. Buy a few packages of water balloons and pick out the red, white and blue ones. Save the others for another day.
