Forget the traditional bouquet of flowers. Birthdays are all about making the one celebrating it feel extra special. If you want to make the occasion truly memorable, send birth month flowers to show that you really wish the one celebrating a real happy birthday.
For sure you’ve already heard about birth stones and their meanings. Birth month flowers are pretty much the same—they make gift-giving personalized and with a touch of love. Here are the birth month flowers and their descriptions:
Carnation is the birth flower for January and it signifies a lot of things, depending on its color. White is for friendship; pink, romance; and red for love. Just be careful not to send the yellow or striped varieties as they mean contempt and refusal, respectively.
People born in this love month will surely delight in the Iris’ warm, deep color. This flower revered since ancient times suggests faith, wisdom and hope—three things to wish for as one turns another year wiser.
The daffodil, known all over the world as the first flower of spring, is birth flower for March. Daffodils denote respect, rebirth and regard. These flowers last a long time, which is perfect for the beginning of the summer in the Philippines.
Daisies are known for their elaborate beauty, and it is the perfect birth flower for those who were born in April. You wouldn’t go wrong with these colorful blooms that go well with any kind of floral arrangement.
Humility, chastity, purity and sweetness—these are all represented by the lily of the valley. Usually used in bridal floral arrangements, these blooms give a sweet hint of fragrance that will certainly captivate the senses of the recipient.
A rose is known for its classic appeal. Popular for being the flower of passion (in Greek mythology, Aphrodite gave a rose to Eros, the god of love), the rose can be given on birthdays to show love and appreciation.
Lightheartedness is what Larkspur, the July birth flower, is known for. Bring cheerfulness to one’s birthday by giving this wonderful and graceful-looking flower.
Show tribute to your friend’s or family’s birthday with the gladiolus. This beautiful garden flower which represents remembrance comes in a variety of colors. Include each shade in the bouquet and you’ll surely put a smile on someone’s face.
Birthdays in September won’t be as special without a single aster in a bouquet. The aster indicates daintiness—the perfect gift to give for someone who wants something that shows refinement and beauty.
If you want something that shows ‘winning grace’, the marigold flower is the right kind of bloom to give. This October birth flower is also known as calendula and is considered sacred in places like India. Marigold is also known as a symbol of joy—something that everyone deserves to have especially during a person’s birthday.
Nothing else says “You’re a wonderful friend” better than a Chrysanthemum. This November birth flower comes in white, yellow and red. Throw in a bunch of chrysanthemum in a bouquet and spread infectious cheerfulness.
Persons born this holiday season deserve nothing else but a delightful bunch of Poinsettia. Send good wishes as another year ends with the bright red hues of the Poinsettia.
Birthdays are big occasions that should not be missed. This is also the perfect time to show how savvy you are when it comes to sending gifts. Surprise your family and friends with your birth month flowers know-how, and they’ll surely treasure the flowers that you give them.
