The Year Ahead in Birthstones

birthstonesWelcome to a new year! There is much to look forward to, and many new floral designs to create and explore. Each month of the calendar year represents its own birthstone, and based upon that stone we can design birthday designs with colorful flowers to match. When it comes to sending the freshest, most beautiful flowers in San Mateo, you need only call Ah Sam Florist.

Here is a list of the birthstones for each month, as well as flowers you may wish to consider for a custom birthday bouquet. It is our hope that you will find this list to be useful throughout all of 2017, for all of your loved one’s special days. 

birthstonesJanuary – Although the garnet comes in many shades, the red garnet is the traditional birthstone. Red roses and amaryllis are beautiful choices.
February – The lilac colored amethyst inspires bouquets of purple roses or orchids.
March – The aquamarine is a uniquely colored stone, which can be represented florally with blue hyacinth.
April – The diamond is most often incorporated in any color florals with crystals and sparkling decor elements.
May  – The iconic emerald has a coveted color that can be recreated with a bouquet of cymbidium, green button mums, or a backdrop of Bells of Ireland.
June – The pearl birthstone is easily recreated in creamy white roses, lilies, or orchids.
July – The hot month offers a fiery birthstone in the red ruby, which shines through in summer bouquets of red gerbera daisies, tulips, salvia or hibiscus.
August – The peridot is a pale green, and you should choose cymbidium orchids or green hyacinth for the perfect flowers.
September – The dramatic sapphire represents the month of September, and blue dendrobium orchids and delphinium show it off proudly.
October – The translucent opal shines through in creamy vintage roses.
November – Topaz and citrine and both a bronze color that is not normally reflected in any flowers, so choose a topaz vase and decorative elements to adorn white roses for a rich effect.
December – We finish out the year with turquoise, so choose a blue hydrangea to recreate the birthstone.

This list represents only floral representations of the year’s birthstones, but there are many other ways to celebrate birthdays throughout the year. Whatever your birthday celebration style, we have the perfect flowers to express your love and affection. For every occasion this year, you can trust the designers at Ah Sam Florist to create a bouquet worthy of the occasion.
