Do you have a loved one celebrating a birthday soon? Like every month on the calendar, September birthdays have both a birthstone and a birth flower – and this month, we look to the sapphire and the aster to communicate our love and affection. At City Line Florist, we specialize in delivering just the right bouquet or arrangement for every occasion, and we’ve got some beautiful selections for you in September.
The sapphire traditionally is considered to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight; and while being a symbol of strength, also represents kindness and wisdom. True Blue Orchids, shown above, are a perfect floral representation of the precious sapphire gemstone. The deep celestial blues mimic those of the sapphire, which to the ancient world signified the epitome of hope and faith. If you have a true blue friend or loved one, someone kind and wise and strong – these birthday orchids will be a meaningful gift. (Please note, these exquisite blooms are local only and may require a bit of advance notice – so order today!) You may also wish to speak to the expert floral designers at City Line Florist about other sapphire-inspired options, such as blue delphinium and blue hydrangea, in order to create something fabulous for your September baby.
If you’d prefer to give the official birth flower of September, the versatile aster is the flower of the month. A plant of the daisy family, the aster’s bright rayed flowers – which resemble stars – are one of fall’s best offerings. Although often utilized in gardens due to their hardy nature, asters can also be found in floral bouquets, providing brilliant bursts of colors. They exhibit yellow centers and brilliant petals that span the spectrum range.
There are many choices as to how to honor a September birthday, but only one florist to call when it comes time to order. Don’t forget, City Line Florist delivers birthday wishes from Trumbull to Shelton to Fairfield – so call us today and let’s talk about how we can make their birthday extra meaningful this year.
