As floral designers, we are inspired by many things. When it comes to birthdays, there are two inspirations each month that we look to – the birthstone, and the birth flower. In September, that means sapphires and asters. If you have loved ones celebrating this month, look no further than Bice’s Florist for your September birthday bouquets.
The sapphire is one of the world’s most precious stones and its brilliant blue color has been cherished throughout history. When creating sapphire birthday bouquets, blue blooms such as hydrangea, orchids, iris, delphinium, and asters are great choices. Blue flowers are relatively uncommon, and the make for striking and unique bouquets.
The sapphire is called the “celestial stone”, as it has been revered for centuries as being a conduit of heavenly powers. Fittingly, the September birth flower also has cosmic connotations. The aster is a member of the daisy family, and its name means “star-like”. Asters generally have yellow centers surrounded by ray-like petals of vivid color.
Blue Caribbean is one of our most popular arrangements, and celebrates September both with a sapphire-hued vase and violet blue Matsumoto asters. Combined with Asiatic lilies, gerbera daisies, roses and alstroemeria, this is a birthday celebration in a vase.
