Many people even keep the enclosure card in a scrapbook long after the day has passed. You’ve gone the extra mile to send flowers.

Remember The Birth Month Flower of August?

People who received a birthday bouquet full of the birth month flower of August probably remember what it is. If you’ve read last year’s August birth month flower blog, “Glad To Have Gladiolus”, you probably remember also.

Ok. So I just gave you a huge hint. Don’t make me have to work here.

Red Gladiolus Are A Great August Birthday Gift!

Red Gladiolus Are A Great August Birthday Gift!

The birth month flower of August is the gladiola. Though poppy holds this title, you’re not going to find it in a birthday bouquet from your local florist. What you are likely to find in a birth month flower birthday bouquet is a wide range of flowers centered around (or at least including) gladiolus in orange or red. Why orange and red? Because orange, red and light green are the official birth month flower colors for August.

Ready for the flower meaning of gladiolus? “Strength of character; Sincerity; Generosity; Natural Grace” These together make a gladiolus birthday bouquet one of the most meaningful, sweet gifts that you can send! Florists use gladiolus often because it’s a fresh and beautiful flower with a lot of features that enhance each arrangement. Add in a dash of meaning and a hint of happy birthday wishes and you have a great birthday gift!

Summer flowers like the gladiolus are perfect for August birthdays. Orange and red are excellent colors to represent the full summer sun, the breezy sunsets of the summer, and the way the seasons are preparing to change. Just before the leaves begin to turn color, August birthdays are very special because they are shared by people who are always on the cusp of something great. Luckily for you, it’s easy to find a birthday gift for someone this fantastic. Just ask your local florist about August birth month flowers.

Need Birthday Flowers For A Leo?

When it’s time to shop for a birthday gift for a Leo, strike “trip to the mall” off of the list. Instead, call your local florist and ask about zodiac flowers for a Leo. This is a unique gift that they probably aren’t going to get twice. The creativity of zodiac flower arrangements shows that you’re paying attention to the birthday boy or girl and really wanted to go the extra mile for a cool gift this year. Well you did! At least, you will have when you contact your local florist and talk about zodiac flowers in a birthday bouquet.

So what flowers qualify as Leo zodiac flowers and astrological flowers? Here are the most popular blooms for Leos:

Orange Carnations Are Always Fun!

Orange Carnations Are Always Fun!

  • Carnations (yay!!!)
  • Amaranthus
  • Peonies
  • Anthuriums
  • Cacti
  • Sunflowers
  • Venus Fly Trap (though you’ll have to go farther than your local florist to find this TRULY unique gift)

So when it comes to shopping around for a birthday gift for your loveable Leo, look to your local florist. They have just what you need this year — zodiac flowers!

What’s The July Birth Month Flower?

Try The "Thinking of You" Bouquet with Larkspur

Try The "Thinking of You" Bouquet with Larkspur

I won’t keep you guessing. The July birth month flower is the larkspur. Of course, regular readers probably remember this from last year’s July Birth Month Flower blog. For those who haven’t gone back that far, here’s a head’s up.

The official birth month flowers of July are the larkspur and the water lily. You’re not going to see many florists with water lily arrangements so most people tend to use larkspur instead. This is great though! Larkspur is gorgeous in birthday flower bouquets. It adds height and shape while looking as beautiful as any flower has a right to be.

What wasn’t mentioned in last year’s blog are the flower colors and flower meanings associated with the birth month flowers of July. Did you send birth month flowers last year? Send them again this year but add another dash of whimsy and character to the bouquet by using just birth month flowers in these colors:  green, russet and red. The flower meaning of larkspur is “laughter” or “levity.” Who wouldn’t want to send something so cheerful?

Whatever bouquet you choose to send this year, make sure you ask your local florist about using larkspur in the flower arrangement!

These Flowers Make It Cool To Be A Cancer

Many readers probably remember last year’s post about zodiac flowers for Cancers.  Cancers are people with whose birthdays fall between June 21 and July 21. In my family, that’s a lot of people! Finding unique gifts for each of them becomes very difficult each year. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.  These are the people who have everything, enjoy only a few hobbies, and have spent many years collecting gifts so they don’t seem to need anything either. What to do, what to do!?

Just enough Delphinium to be exciting!

Just enough Delphinium to be exciting!

I can say that just like last year I stand beside cancer zodiac flowers as awesome and unique birthday gifts. I mean, come on. Who would expect something which requires so much thought and effort (or so it seems)?

My local florist makes it practically effortless to pick up a pretty birthday bouquet for my friends and family. I just call up June and say “I need an arrangement centered around zodiac flowers for cancer. They are roses, lily of the valley, hydrangea, iris, cornflower, delphinium, and ferns. Can I get something in an X price range?” That’s almost the entire extent of the conversation and the birthday gift shopping is done!

Yeah. As far as zodiac flowers are concerned, two thumbs WAY up for Cancer zodiac flowers!

Birth Month Flowers Get No Better Than White Roses

People with a birthday in June lucked out where birth month flowers are concerned. The birth month flower of June is the rose! It’s a pretty traditional, easy to find, popular, easy to love flower. To connect the dots–the perfect birthday gift!

So why send the birth month flower of June? Why is a rose such a special birthday gift in June? Well for starters, sending a unique birthday gift shows that you put extra thought into the recipient, what they would like, and put more effort into getting just the right gift. That deserves major props! After the birthday boy or girl calms down from having the spotlight aimed on them all day, they’re going to remember who went the extra mile and who barely got off the starting line.

The Perfect Birthday Gift This June!

The Perfect Birthday Gift This June!

Racing analogies aside, the rose is one of the most beautiful birth month flowers. It’s easy to find at any local flower shop. Florists have worked with roses since the dawn of the floral industry. They know how to treat roses with special care. They know how to make traditional rose arrangements stand out as a fabulous birthday gift. This is a perk for you because it makes it fast and simple to find what you need and get a unique birthday gift all at the same time.

Want to give birth month flowers as a birthday gift this June? Give your bouquet even more meaning by applying the traditional flower colors of this birth month flower. Look for white or cream roses when sending June birth month flowers. These carry with them a meaning of love and devoted affection. Whether a mother, girlfriend, brother, best friend or new friend, “love and devoted affection” helps keep a happy relationship blooming.

What A Treasure, What A Gemini!

Geminis are fun people. Well, at least generally speaking. I have known and loved many a Gemini in my time and continue to fall in love with the unique personality each person has even though many Geminis share the same characteristics.

Born between May 21st and June 20th, Geminis are said to be talkative, energetic and intellectual. Yup, that’s spot on for most of the Geminis that I know. They can also be inconsistent, inquisitive, nervous and tense. Wow…that would be a bad day. I have an idea for curing those woes around their birthday this year. Send flowers! Some examples of Gemini zodiac flowers are:

  • Alstroemeria
  • Solidago
  • Daffodil
  • Cactus
  • Acacia

Truth be told, this idea was given to me last year and I liked it so much that I thought I’d share it again. (You can still view the 2008 zodiac flowers post.) I’m not much on astrology but I do see a lot of fun in sending astrological flowers for a person’s birthday or special day inside the month. It’s always interesting to have something unique to discuss. Bring up the type of zodiac flowers at the birthday party and see if you don’t get a rapid response.

Want to send a unique birthday gift like zodiac flowers but are afraid you’ll offend the recipient. Send birth month flowers instead! All the greatness, none of the guilt!

Forget A Birthday? Here’s A Cool Belated Birthday Gift

My brothers are hilarious. If you’ve ever seen the hit comedy series Frasier, picture Niles and Frasier at 25 and 23.  Aaron (who turned 25 on the 4th of April) is finicky about his appearance, his preferences, his likes and dislikes. He plays the “big brother” role very well. Mark (my surrogate brother who is 8 days my senior) is also finicky but in very different ways. He’s a “go green” enthusiast, avid vegetarian, and soon-to-be father. Their byplay is priceless and merited a very fun belated birthday gift for Aaron.

Mark forgot Aaron’s birthday this year. Not sure how but it slipped his mind until the following Monday. My sister (22 on the 14th of April) was also forgotten briefly. Feeling horrible for forgetting Aaron’s birthday, Mark brought over the coolest gift ever. I couldn’t  help but laugh. I only wish I’d taken a picture!

Aaron and Mark enjoy gardening. In lieu of some elaborate reparations, Mark brought over a packet of forget-me-not seeds and a small garden shovel. It was too cool! Ok, maybe it’s my warped sense of humor that made me laugh so much when I heard about this belated birthday gift. Something like this is always fun. If you have an equally wry sense of humor and just so happen to forget a birthday, call your local florist. I’m sure they can hook you up with some forget-me-nots for the occasion. Let’s hope you never need this belated birthday tip!

What Does May Mean To You?

It may mean nothing. It may mean everything.

It may mean sports and activities. It may mean the end of school.

It may mean celebrating a birthday. If this is the case, it may mean birth month flowers.

Birth month flowers are beautiful fresh flowers associated with a particular month and are usually sent as unique birthday gifts. If celebrating a birthday in May, get excited about your options this month because the birth month flower for May is the lily!

Lilies Make Unique Birthday Gifts in May

Lilies Make Unique Birthday Gifts in May

Lilies make great gifts because so much meaning can be attached to them. Lilies represent purity. There are tons of great card messages wrapped around encouraging words of purity. Score one for lilies.

Lilies are beautiful, popular flowers. Everyone loves waking up to fresh bouquet of lilies. Whether Asiatic lilies, stargazer lilies, Casablanca lilies or others, these fresh flowers are always big hits. That makes it easy to please any birthday girl or boy with fresh flowers. Score two for lilies.

Lilies are the birth month flower of May. This makes them a unique birthday gift idea. Who doesn’t like knowing that extra thought went into their birthday gift?

Bull-oney! There Are Taurus Zodiac Flowers?

Zodiac flowers are fun, especially for Taurus. This fun zodiac sign is represented by a bull. How cool is that?! When I think of a bull, I picture the same qualities that most people would assign to these animals. Bulls are usually calm animals when left alone. They are stubborn, powerful, bold, and tenacious when provoked to such. I know plenty of people like that and I was surprised just how many have a birthday between April 21st and May 20th (that makes them a Taurus).

It’s hard to find unique gifts every year. Most of the Bloomin’ Blog followers know that I’ve been on a fresh flower kick. Why not? It’s as much fun for the sender to send flowers with a unique twist as it is for the recipient to receive an interesting birthday gift. Two perks in one–I say go for it!

"Fashionable Father’s Day Bouquet"

"Fashionable Father’s Day Bouquet"

Taurus Zodiac flowers (also called astrological flowers) are violets, iris, sweet pea, lilac and lavender. You can also enjoy aster, lily of the valley, scented stock, sweet William and fruit bearing trees for a Taurus birthday. Flower arrangements like the “Fashionable Fathers Day Bouquet” at left are perfect for Taurus birthdays. Don’t let the title fool you—this bouquet of iris and daisies go over well all year!

You know your birthday boy or girl the best. Deciding which flowers to send will be a breeze! Simply contact your local florist to create a unique birthday gift that your friend will love.

Please Note: Zodiac flowers are assigned to each of the 12 astrological signs. There is no cosmic magic associated with zodiac flowers. There is no spell cast over astrological flowers. Zodiac flowers are just a fun way to acknowledge something that helps group people together, gives them something in common–their zodiac sign.
