When you hear “summer colors”, what comes to mind? Here in South Florida we may think of the white sand or the blue water; or perhaps the blazing orange of the nightly sunsets. Summer flowers are often vivid and bold, with tropical orange, yellow, and pink dominating the landscape. These hues make for bright and stunning bouquets and arrangements, but green is rarely mentioned. As a matter of fact, when it comes to summer birthday floral designs, green is generally utilized as background filler, relegated to residing in leaves and grasses.
But in the month of August, green takes center stage. This is because the birthstone of August is the peridot, an exquisite light green gem with a tint of gold. The peridot often looks lime green, inspiring unconventional bouquets with surprising blooms and artistic touches. Birthstone bouquet collections will often offer a monochromatic design which makes the color even more striking, as is the case with the Green Garden. This innovative arrangement utilizes unusual plants to create a rare result not seen anywhere else; mini green hydrangeas are paired with succulents, seeded eucalyptus, hypericom, and aspidistra leaves.
The gemstone is best represented by adding yellow blooms to the peridot-green flowers. Just as precious stones are rare and beautiful, so are the designs created by our skilled floral experts. In one of our more popular products, green cymbidium orchids rise above yellow roses and white hydrangea in a high-style arrangement. Trust us, these are not your ordinary birthday floral designs! Those celebrating August birthdays will be amazed at the level of intricacy, detail, and care evidenced in their birthday gift, delivered to their front door.
This month, the color of birthdays is vivid green. And the best place in Miami to get the most elegant, sophisticated and gorgeous flowers is Trias Flowers.
