The Year of Birthstones and Bouquets

birthstone bouquetsWelcome to the new year! When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions throughout the year, the best place in Columbus to find the most beautiful flowers is Griffin’s Floral Designs.

There are many ways to be inspired when creating bouquets for birthdays. Some people choose an arrangement overflowing with their favorite flowers, others their favorite colors – but birthstones are also a common inspiration for beautiful bouquets on this most special day.

There are three months of the year – March, September, and December – that feature stones which exhibit shades of blue, with September’s sapphire being the boldest and most vibrant.

The emerald of May and the peridot of August both exhibit beautiful greens that create striking bouquets, and the amethyst, the official birthstone of February, showcases gorgeous shades of purple. birthstones
