The year is flying by, it seems, and August is upon us already! This year, there is no need to worry about finding gifts for all your friends and relatives – we have the perfect gifts, inspired by the season. Everyone appreciates being surprised by a lush bouquet of August birthday flowers at their desk or front door. This month, these floral designs are more vibrant, beautiful and meaningful than ever.
The birth flower of the month is the bold and confident gladioli bloom. So named because of its association with ancient Roman gladiators, this long and slender bloom can grow several feet tall and comes in a wide range of striking colors. Known as “glorious glads” for their impressive appearance, the gladiolus bloom symbolized strength of character, loyalty, and courage. These attributes make the gladioli a perfect birthday tribute to a best friend or loved one who has always been there for you. Simply call the experts at City Line Florists and ask them which colors are available at this time.
The birthstone of August is the peridot, a gem whose hue ranges from lime to olive green , with traces of a gold tint. While we don’t sell precious gems at the flower shop, we can create a custom bouquet utilizing exquisite summer blooms that share the stone’s unique coloration. Popular choices include green hydrangea, poms, mums, green roses or orchids. Once you have your “gemstone” flowers, add in all the colors of the season for a lush and colorful bouquet unrivaled by any others.
In the summertime, the wide variety of seasonal flowers allows for an endless array of choices for the perfect birthday bouquet. Our designers can create a display featuring their favorite color; or perhaps a lavish, overflowing bouquet of nothing but their favorite bloom. Come into City Line Florist and lets the gorgeous blooms of summer inspire you, just as your special someone does every day.
