Each month gives a birthstone and a birth flower the chance to shine – and in September, the honor goes to the sapphire and the aster.
Whether you choose the vivid blue colors of the sapphire, or the stellar beauty of the fall aster, you can be sure that your September birthday arrangements will be exquisite. Not sure where to begin? Just give the floral designers at Bagoy’s Florist & Home a call – we are happy to help.
The aster is very similar in appearance to the daisy, and is a member of the same broad family. It’s ray-like petals bloom in late summer into the fall, making it the perfect September birthday flower. Asters are popular additions to cut flower arrangements both for their bold beauty and their resilience. There are even several varieties that exhibit a blue or violet hue, if you want to tie in the sapphire reference.
Did You Know? Sapphires are one of two gems made of the mineral known as corundum – the other is the ruby. Sapphires exhibit a full range of colors, but the iconic brilliant blue is by far the most popular and valuable. If you want to create a sapphire blue floral arrangement, you can select blue delphinium. blue iris, blue hydrangea, or unique blue orchids. Another way to incorporate sapphire blue into your September birthday arrangements is by asking for a blue vase, or blue “gems” to place in the bottom of a clear vase.
If you are welcoming a new baby boy in September, these blue arrangements are the perfect choice to celebrate the original birthday!
