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. The stone, often referred to as a “poor man’s emerald”, is anything but second class, however. The gem is lime-to-olive green in 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. This orchid/bromeliad combination not only exhibits the green and yellow color scheme, but its symbolism is similar to that of the gemstone. 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 this gorgeous summer bouquet, overflowing with peridot-green hydrangea and purple roses and carnations. But if your style is a little more whimsical, go straight to our Fun and Festive Bouquet. We’ve included birthstone-inspired green mums in the arrangement but made sure to incorporate bursts of bright summer blooms – red carnations, yellow asters, and orange roses. This arrangement, delivered in a keepsake mug, will bring the celebration to any birthday party.
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.
