When it comes to finding the perfect gifts for our favorite people, sometimes we could use a little inspiration. In September, that inspiration comes by way of the birthstone and birth flower of the month – the sapphire, and the aster. The floral designers at Port Charlotte Florist have created beautiful bouquets and arrangements using these two special elements, ensuring that you can celebrate your September birthdays in elegant style. Which of these designs inspires you?
Sapphire Blue Flowers: The birthstone of the month is the brilliant sapphire. Although the stone does occur in many colors, it is the deep shade of blue which is the most iconic and cherished. Ancient Greeks associated the sapphire both with the blue of the sky, and the stars in the heavens.
This gorgeous color occurs naturally in very few flowers, but incorporating those flowers into arrangements for September birthdays ensures a striking display! To add the celestial beauty of the blue sapphire to your birthday designs, you can add blue hydrangea (shown above) blue delphinium, blue larkspur (shown below), blue statice, or purple and blue asters.
September Asters: It is not only the sapphire which the ancients associated with the stars – infact, the word “aster” also means star. These flowers are related to daisies and sunflowers, and exhibit ray petals which are star-like in shape and appearance. Asters are late summer/early fall bloomers, making them a logical choice to represent this month.
Did You Know? You can identify an aster by its yellow disk center, which is comprised of nearly 300 miniature individual flowers.
No matter the occasion, you can trust the floral designers at Port Charlotte Florist to deliver the most inspired bouquets. From Punta Gorda to Englewood, Venice, and North Port – we are committed to making sure that all of your special days are more beautiful.
