September birthdays have the honor of being represented by one of the most cherished birthstones, the sapphire. Only four of the birthstones are true precious gems, and this is one of them. Known as the “celestial stone” because of its brilliant blue color, the sapphire actually occurs in a full range of colors including pink, orange, and red. But it is the blue and violets hues of the sapphire that are the most recognized, and what we celebrate this month.
In addition to sapphires, the birth flower of the month is the aster. Asters are members of the daisy family and are most often characterized by a bright yellow center surrounded by vividly colored petals that fan our like a star. In fact, the name aster originates from the Greek word for “star”, linking both the aster and the sapphire in their meaning.
Our Heaven Sent bouquet, seen above, combines these two symbols of September with sapphire-hued asters and blue delphinium providing the beautiful color of this arrangement. Pink and lavender roses, seeded eucalyptus and other delicate blooms create a romantic bouquet perfect for your loved one’s special day. Another way to infuse your bouquet with sapphire inspiration is by asking for a blue vase and Happy Birthday balloon!
