Need Ideas For January Birthdays?

You’ve come to the right place. You can’t go wrong with sending flowers, especially for a special birthday treat! But just what kind of flowers?

First off, the official flower of January is the carnation. Carnations come in dozens of colors, so pick a favorite color of the one having a birthday and send a bouquet of carnations just for them. Or send a mixed arrangement with their favorite flowers that includes carnations. Check out this mixed flower arrangement featuring carnations:

If you are looking for something a little more unique, why not go with the January birthstone color — garnet. Garnet is a dark redish orange color and there are LOTS of flowers available in this color. The best thing to do is contact your local florist and ask her to create a custom arrangement using all garnet colors, or here are a few to get you started:
