There are many things that can inspire our choice of birthday flowers for those we love. We may wish to create a bouquet of their favorite variety, or have a design created which celebrates their favorite color. Each month, we also can also be inspired by the birthstone and birth flower set aside to represent it – this month, the sapphire and aster are in the spotlight. Let these two be the starting point for all your September birthday flowers and arrangements – with a little help from the experts at Ah Sam Florist.
Did You Know? The iconic blue sapphire is perhaps the most cherished of the sapphires, but this gemstone also can be found in a variety of other colors from green to purple to orange! However, there is no such thing as a red sapphire – they are known as rubies.
Although there are not a lot of flowers which exhibit the vivid blue of sapphire, the ones that do are exquisite! Ask our floral designers about adding blue delphinium (see above), blue iris, or orchids to your arrangements. Although blue hydrangea is a paler blue, it blends beautifully with other blue florals perfect for September birthday flowers.
You may also choose a bouquet of September asters. These hardy flowers bloom in late summer and into fall, exhibiting a wide range of vibrant colors. Asters are similar to the daisy in appearance and are very popular both as a standalone bouquet and as a part of a mixed arrangement. Their star-like appearance is readily recognizable and are often seen in fresh cut arrangements.
When choosing September birthday flowers, you may opt for sapphire blue, or fall asters – but no matter your choice, be sure you contact Ah Sam Florist to deliver them to your loved one. You won’t find a more dedicated team in the San Mateo area!
