Everyone knows that flowers from a Monmouth florist make a great gift for any occasion, be it holidays, birthdays, bereavement, support, and any other event you can think of. What many people may not realize however is that each month of the year has its own birth flower. |
Instead of gemstones, consider giving your loved ones flowers for their birthdays, or for your friends after they have had babies. Here are all of the months of the year and the corresponding flowers to pick up from the florist to celebrate the occasion.
January: Carnations Carnations are an interesting flower because they come in an array of different colors, all of which have different meanings attached. You could choose a different color depending on your intended message. For example, pink carnations signify deep and loyal friendships while red carnations symbolize love.
February: Iris The birth flower for February is the iris, not the rose as one might think in this month that celebrates love. The three petals standing upright on the iris symbolize faith, valor, and wisdom. If a loved one represents these qualities and was born in February, a bouquet of irises would be a great choice.
March: Daffodil The daffodil symbolizes birth and new beginnings. This makes it a particularly relevant gift for a new mom whose baby was born in March.
April: Daisy Not surprisingly, this fun and simple flower symbolizes happiness, joy, and playfulness. This would be another good choice to celebrate a loved one having a baby, since daisies also signify childlike innocence.
May: Lily Lilies are beautiful flowers that signify purity, majesty, and honor. Another significant day in May, Mother’s Day, gives you another reason to celebrate honorable women in your life with the gift of lilies.
June: Rose Although roses carry a lot of significance and giving roses is pretty much never a bad choice, giving roses typically signifies passionate love. However, this is one other flower that holds different meanings based on the color of the petals.
July: Delphinium Although the name is somewhat a mouthful, delphinium is an extremely fragrant flower that not only symbolizes the warmth and carefree spirit of summer, but also ardent love and attachment.
August: Gladiola An interesting fact about gladiolas is that their sword shaped petals gave these flowers their name—originally gladius, or gladiator. This flower represents strength and integrity as well as infatuation.
September: Aster Symbolizing love and elegance, the aster has been thought during several periods of history to contain magical powers. A lesser known choice for a bouquet, asters can be a unique way to show someone how much you care on their birthday each year.
October: Marigold Unfortunately, marigolds do not fare well after they have been cut, but a reminder of this birth flower’s significance can be expressed in other ways. Few people can resist the broad bloom of these autumn-hued flowers. Although they would not do well being cut and would not make a very impressive bouquet, marigolds represent affection and grace.
November: Chrysanthemum You don’t have to know how to spell chrysanthemum in order to understand and appreciate the meaning of this particularly stunning flower. These flowers have been said to bring peace to troubled hearts, a fitting reminder any month of the year to center on happiness and let go of the negative.
December: Poinsettia December is a month that is typically full of joyful celebrations and gatherings with family. This is what makes it an especially appropriate gift for new parents whose children were born during this month. No matter what day or month of the year it is, and regardless of the occasion, sending flowers to loved ones can signify messages of love and serve as a thoughtful gift.
