Birthday, Birthstones, and Bouquets

birthstonesWith the new year here, and each month promising more opportunity for special moments – there is a lot to look forward to!  From holidays to special occasions, we love celebrating with family and friends. And when it comes to sending gifts to loved ones for their birthdays, we want to make sure they are meaningful. To guarantee that the flowers you send are extraordinary, call the professional designers at Port Charlotte Florist.  We will create beautiful custom arrangements for all of the birthdays you’ll be celebrating with family and friends this year.

One of the most popular ways to create birthday bouquets is based upon each month’s birthstone. From the red garnet of January to the turquoise that represents December, these precious stones provide the colorful inspiration for some of our favorite birthday florals. 


Birthstones have been a notable aspect of our culture since ancient times. It was long believed that these gems (and others) had mystical powers, and as such they were highly esteemed by the upper levels of society. In fact, the powerful elite and ruling class were known to amass a collection – one of each stone – so as to guarantee that they would have access to the “magic” each stone endowed. Today views are much different,  but we still cherish the tradition of having a special gem associated with each birthday.

The birthstones that represent each month are as follows:
January – Garnet (deep red)
February – Amethyst (lavender purple)
March – Aquamarine (bright blue)
April – Diamond (white and crystal)
May – Emerald (green)
June – Pearl (off white)
July – Ruby (red)
August – Peridot (yellow or lime green)
September – Sapphire (deep blue)
October – Opal (whites and pastels)
November – Topaz (orange and gold)
December  – Turquoise (light blue)

Giving gifts is simpler when you are inspired by gemstones and flowers. Creating a birthstone bouquet is simple – just call the experts at Port Charlotte Florist!  We will be glad to design custom bouquets that will perfectly express the spirit of each unique birthstone, and then deliver them throughout Port Charlotte, North Port and Punta Gorda.
