For the month of August, Breen’s Florist is celebrating with our birthstone collection arrangement, “Peridot.” Our arrangement features green antheriums, bells of Ireland, green cymbidium orchids, and other flowers to help accent the green that represents the peridot gemstone.
While the peridot gemstone is an inexpensive stone, it represents something much more valuable than money. The ancient Egyptians believed that the peridot harnessed the power of nature and was the gem of the sun. It is said that the stone brings protection, peace, and happiness. The accents of white roses represent a peacefulness within the arrangement, while the fun of the lime green orchids and antheriums bring a smile to those who celebrate their birthday this month.
The peridot gemstone is one of the few stones that have only one color: olive-green. The intensity of green depends on the amount of iron that is contained within the stone itself. Other flowers that might also be used to create a beautiful arrangement would be green hydrangea and succulents.
Married couples can also appreciate the peridot gemstone as it represents the 16th year of marriage. Perfect gift ideas may include 16 Lemonade roses, which have beautiful lime-green blooms.
Breen’s Florist will have the exclusive “Peridot” arrangement available throughout the month of August and remember, you can save 10% on the arrangement by using coupon code: PERIDOT.
