What inspires you about summer in South Florida? It may be the amazing nightly sunset or the cool breeze off the Gulf. Maybe you love long days of fishing and sailing, or lazy days lounging beachside. For those celebrating birthdays in the summer, these days are especially exciting and fun-filled. There is a seemingly endless supply of activities to commemorate an August birth. If you are looking for unique birthday florals to say “Happy Birthday” to these summer babies, Port Charlotte Florist has a bit of our own inspiration to provide.
For instance, you may not know that the birthstone of August is the peridot. This gemstone, often referred to as a “poor man’s emerald,” is anything but second class! The gem is a lime-to-olive green color and exhibits a gold tint that sets it apart visually. Choosing a floral arrangement that aesthetically represents those same hues is a beautiful way to express birthday sentiments.
For example, our elegant and unique Island Cabana bouquet features a range of florals and greenery in shades of green reminiscent of the peridot. Crisp green cymbidium orchids, pink snapdragons, orange protea, peach roses, fluffy pink hydrangea, green hypericum, and curly willow are accented with silver dollar eucalyptus and river rock in this tall glass marbled-effect vase. Both the orchids and the peridot are said to embody a spirit of good fortune, good health, and prosperity. This elegant gift will be right at home in a Florida room, on a living room end table, or in any office.
Equally eloquent but much more lavish is the gorgeous arrangement, Island Time, which has peridot-green hydrangea, olive-green orchids, and dark-green Bells of Ireland offset by deep red roses and other tropical florals. This is a birthday gift sure to delight and surprise.
Finally, a simple vase of green, pink, and blue hydrangea paired with green eucalyptus for accent is a wonderfully elegant and lovely way to celebrate someone’s August birthday.
Remember, any floral gift will make the birthday girl (or guy) smile in delight. Flowers have the proven ability to lift one’s spirits, spread joy, and lower stress. They are the perfect gift for anyone. For more information on which gems go with which months, read our birthdays, birthstones, and bouquets blog.
Sophisticated to fun-loving, Port Charlotte Florist knows how to deliver the birthday arrangements that will be the life of the party. So whether you are meeting them at a bonfire on the beach, or having dinner for two on the Bay – stop by our flower shop first. Their birthday deserves a little floral inspiration.
