Birthstone Inspired Flowers for August

Are you looking for the perfect birthday flowers? We think you will be inspired by a small green stone. Each month has its own special birthstone that is said to encompass characteristics and nature of those born under its sign. For the month of August, the stone of the hour is the peridot – a green and gold gem also known as the “evening emerald” because its hue is a bit more muted than the other green gem. Its unique beauty has been desired for centuries; dating back to the Egyptian era when jewelry and religious pieces were adorned with peridot.

Monochromatic arrangements in this particular color are nothing short of exquisite. This simple and elegant bouquet of cymbidium orchids and hydrangea truly embodies all the magical aura of the peridot; while the dramatic Green Light arrangement showcases lime colored roses and spider chrysanthemums in a uniquely fabulous display.  Many people do not even realize that there are green flowers, let alone that they are this exotic and striking.

The peridot stone is used to create stunning jewelry, and those in the fashion world tell us that the best colors to pair with these gemstones are bold and neon pastels. Our designers translate that advice into floral form in gorgeous style, utilizing green hydrangea and orchids as well as pink roses, hydrangea and tulips.
