We celebrate birthdays year-round, with each month of the year bringing more opportunity for special moments. When it comes to honoring our loved ones on their birthday, we want to send gifts that are memorable and meaningful. One sure way to send flowers that are extraordinary is to call the experts at Central Square Florist. We will create gorgeous custom bouquets for all of the birthdays you’ll be celebrating this year.
One of the most popular ways to design birthday bouquets is based upon the birthstones which represent each month. From “red garnet” roses in January to “turquoise blue” hydrangea in December, these precious gems provide the colorful inspiration for some of our favorite arrangements.
Birthstones have been a part of our culture since ancient times. It was long believed that these precious and semi-precious stones had special powers. In fact, the elite and ruling classes often obtained one of each stone so that they would own the full complement of mystical powers. Of course, today most do not believe that the birthstones have inherent power, however, we still love the idea of having a special stone associated with each birthday.
Creating a birthstone bouquet is easy – simply call the experts at Central Square Florist! We are happy to create custom bouquets that will beautifully express the unique nature of each birthstone, and deliver them throughout Cambridge and Boston.
The birthstones that represent each month are as follows:
January – Garnet (deep red, such as roses or gerberas)
February – Amethyst (lavender purple, such as orchids)
March – Aquamarine (bright blue, such s periwinkle and lapis lazuli)
April – Diamond (white and crystal, such as roses and lilies)
