By their very nature, flowers have inherent meaning. They express sentiments, emotions, and messages, whether through the type of flower, or the color of the bloom. Another way that flowers are used to be meaningful gifts is in birthstone bouquets.
Birthstone bouquets are designed to be floral representations of the precious stones which represent each month of the year. Over the years, these gems were thought to have magical powers which were transferred to anyone who was lucky enough to own one. In modern times, the beautiful stones are more symbolic than anything else, but do make the perfect inspiration for vivid birthday floral designs.
