Introducing Our Birthstone Collection – July is RUBIES

Breen’s Florist has begun to take a new approach to birthdays by creating beautiful works of art based on the birthstones of the month. July’s birthstone is the Ruby and beautiful red flowers are used to create a “rubitastic” arrangement for those July babies.

Our deep red Explorer roses and the fun red gerbera daisies are the featured flowers in our “Rubies” arrangement. We have accented the arrangement with red alstromeria and a few mini carnations with a bracelet of eucalyptus for some exciting aroma.

This arrangement will only be available for delivery July 1st through July 31st and can be delivered throughout Houston and surrounding areas. It is the perfect way to celebrate those July birthdays.

Rubies, the birthstone of July, are considered the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom. It was believed wearing a fine red Ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. A Ruby is the most valuable gemstone and its value increases based on its color and quality. This goes hand in hand with the red rose which is also considered to be the king of flowers.

The July birthstone, Ruby and the red rose are a match made in heaven.

Daisies Announce Spring, April Birthdays

The word daisy comes from an Anglo-Saxon translation which means “day’s eye”, and it was given this name because many species of daisies close up at night and reopen their flower heads in the morning.

This complex bloom has over 23,000 species, is related to the artichoke, and is actually many flowers in one – and because it is also the birth flower of April, we thought we would tell you a bit more about it. When purchasing bouquets for April birthdays, or simply celebrating spring – call Breen’s Florist. We are committed to bringing all the beauty of springtime to Houston, one floral design at a time.  Continue reading
