What inspires you? When planning for September birthdays, one of our great inspirations is the September birth flower, the aster. Because they bloom in late summer and early fall – when many other flowers are ending their season – they are the perfect flower to help us celebrate. A staple among cut floral arrangements, the flower’s star-like appearance and bright colors make for beautiful bouquets – so let’s look a little closer at birthday asters from City Line Florist.
Asters are related to daisies and sunflowers. Like those flowers, they are actually comprised of hundreds of individual flowers. Their disk center is made up of approximately 300 tubular “mini-flowers”, surrounded by ray florets. The aster is named with a nod towards the celestial, with aster being the greek word for star, aptly named because of its appearance.
Sapphire Blue: The birthstone of September is the sapphire, one of the most cherished gems in the world. Although the sapphire comes in many colors, it is the iconic bright blue that is not only most associated with the stone, but is the most valuable. The sapphire is similarly named to the aster, with a root name which means “celestial”.
When designing bouquet for this month’s celebrants, you may choose to blend the influences of both the flower and the birthstone. Ask our designers about a custom bouquet which can showcase birthday asters in blue, or perhaps blue delphinium, blue hydrangea, or blue iris as well.
When it comes to honoring the special people in your life, inspiration is everywhere. Let the floral designers at City Line Florist help you to send a birthday bouquet that will convey your heartfelt affection. Remember, we deliver birthday wishes – and flowers for every occasion – throughout Trumbull and across the country.
