August Birthday Inspiration

AAugust birthday inspiration

There are an untold number of gifts that will say “Happy birthday”, but none quite so stunning as a birthday bouquet. When you are choosing flowers to celebrate your loved one, there are many gorgeous choices – so how do you make a decision? This month, the expert floral designers at Casas Adobes Flower Shop have two suggestions that will give you August birthday inspiration – and help you to honor them in a unique and personal way.

The birth flower of the month is the gladiolus. This striking plant presents multiple colorful blooms on a long, slender stalk. Also called the sword lily, the gladioli flower was given to the victorious gladiators of ancient Rome, which explains the origin of their name. They represent strength of character and loyalty, and so make a wonderful birthday choice for a best friend or family member. The gladiolus bloom comes in a variety of bright and festive colors – just call us and ask what is available!

Another distinct way to celebrate an August birthday is with flowers that represent the birthstone of the month, the peridot. This stone has been coveted since ancient times; it was collected by queens and rulers who esteemed its exquisite color. Often confused with the emerald, the green of the peridot ranges more from lime to olive shades. Flowers which exhibit this color are often rare and exotic as well, including the green cymbidium orchid and green Fuji mums. Pairing them with hydrangea, green roses, and exotic grasses will result in unusual and memorable birthday gifts that will stand out from the rest.

For those celebrating in Tucson, Oro Valley or the surrounding areas, Casas Adobes Flower Shop is the place to go for August birthday inspiration. From flowers to green plants, fruit baskets to chocolates, we have it all. For every birthday this month, don’t forget the flowers!
