Forgo the formal flower arrangement this summer and opt for this simple twist on a festive centerpiece.
-40 clear glass vases (you can use empty baby food jars or a mixture of vases or mason jars)
-Red dahlias, white phlox, blue thistle and blue hydrangea
Fill the jars with water and clip the stem of each flower.
Arrange the stems of each flower by color in separate vases.
Arrange vases in the shape of the American Flag.
