The popular tradition of sending a birthday bouquet that reflects that month’s birthstone is especially fun in the month of August, when the beautiful and intriguing peridot is showcased. Although it may not be a household name, the peridot is an ancient gemstone that was treasured as far back as the Pharaohs. Often called the “poor man’s emerald”, the jewel is anything but – the peridot is found in gorgeous shades ranging from lime green to olive green, most often with tints of gold. The darker stones are referred to as olivine and are considered the most valuable in the family. The floral designers at Breen’s Florist have created memorable August birthstone flowers that are sure to delight your birthday honorees.
When choosing a flower birthday gift, you have available some truly exotic and unique flowers to represent the birthstone, much like the jewel itself. Perhaps one of the most popular flowers chosen to reflect the peridot are green cymbidium orchids – not only is the striking color of the flowers a perfect match, but the rare beauty of these blooms is just as precious. The flower itself represents love, beauty and refinement, and combined with bamboo, river rocks or curly willow, they make a perfect birthday gift that will bring grace to any home or office.
If you are looking for something a little more whimsical, try combining green roses, button poms, carnations and chrysanthemums and offset the arrangement with white lilies. This eye-catching floral design embodies all the colors and spirit of the peridot birthstone, in a living and gorgeous birthday bouquet.
