Every month of the year is represented by both a birth flower and a birthstone, and both of these symbols are often used as inspiration for beautiful birthday floral arrangements. In the month of September, the honor goes to the aster and the sapphire, both special in their own right. In you have a loved one celebrating a birthday in September, the floral designers at Curran’s Flowers hope to inspire you.
Fall Asters: The fact that asters bloom in the autumn season likely played a role in their selection as the September birth flower. When other flowers are ending their seasonal run, these beauties begin to bloom. Related to the daisy and sharing the familiar ray-like flower head, asters are popular choices for cut-flower bouquets. The lovely aster comes in virtually any color and is known to signify enchantment.
September Sapphires: Sapphire is one of the most cherished gemstones in the world. The brilliant blue of the iconic stone is the most popular and valuable variety of sapphire, but it actually occurs in many colors across the spectrum. The sapphire has been revered in nearly every culture and religion for millennia and is considered to be of divine origin, signifying royalty and majesty. Like the aster, the sapphire is associated with stars and has celestial connotations. If you wish to create a bouquet of sapphire-inspired flowers, you can choose blue delphinium, forget-me-nots, irises, or blue and violet-hued asters.
Whatever your choice for the perfect birthday bouquet, you can always trust the floral designers at Curran’s Flowers to create eye-catching, head-turning arrangements worthy to celebrate your loved one’s special day. Whether inspired by September sapphires, asters, or their favorite flower, these arrangements are the most beautiful in Danvers.
