When sending a floral bouquet for a special birthday, there are many ways that you can choose the types of flowers to send. If you know their favorite type of flower, that is a great choice. Or perhaps you want to send a big bouquet of their favorite color of blooms. But a truly meaningful way to choose is to learn a bit about their personal birthstone and to have a custom arrangement designed just for them. After all, birthstones are thought to convey magical properties and special meanings – so floral birthstone bouquets are sure to make an impression.Birthstones were thought to have originated with ancient cultures, so they have a long and colorful history.
