Celebrating birthdays with flowers is a beloved tradition – and for good reason. Everyone loves receiving flowers, and they are even scientifically proven to make people happy. This year, when you are choosing the perfect floral designs for your loved ones, consider making them even more meaningful. Bouquets inspired by monthly birthstones are a beautiful and colorful way to celebrate their special day.
Birthstones have been a part of our culture since ancient times. Many believe that they originated with the Hebrew priests, who in the Old Testament wore breastplates with twelve precious stones. The ancient Greeks began to associate each stone with a birth month, and also believed that each stone had magical powers.
In modern times, the birthstone is rarely thought to endow mystical qualities, but they are still considered a classic birthday gift. If giving a precious stone isn’t in your budget this year, call City Line Florist and ask our professional designers to create a custom bouquet inspired by the appropriate gem. For instance, the month of January is represented by the garnet, a deep red stone. Birthstone bouquets may be comprised of red roses, gerbera daisies, or amaryllis flowers. February showcases the amethyst, a beautiful lavender purple hue that can be expressed through orchids and roses.
They may have a birthday every year, but that doesn’t mean that their gift has to be boring or predictable. From May’s emerald green to the September sapphire’s brilliant blue, you can’t go wrong by using the birthstone’s colors as a starting point for your floral bouquets. If you need a little help, just ask us! We know the perfect flowers for every color palette, and can create the gorgeous arrangements that will make their day.
