Birthstone collection bouquets are a creative way to celebrate one’s birthday. August birthday celebrants are lucky to have the peridot as their birthstone. This exquisite gem has a very unique hue, occurring in variations of lime green with a golden tone overlay. This is a rare color palette for a jewel. Therefore when designing birthday bouquets to aesthetically represent the peridot, similarly unique florals must be sourced and utilized.
For instance, the Jade Butterfly Garden incorporates distinctive green Fuji mums and Bells of Ireland as the focal point for this piece. These green hues are reminiscent of the peridot stone, and this arrangement makes a wonderful August birthday bouquet once a splash of summer sun is added via orange roses. As the peridot exhibits an unusual color, so does this arrangement exhibit colors not often given a starring role.
Alternate florals that can be used to design an August birthstone arrangement are green cymbidium orchids, succulents, mums, green roses, carnations and Bells of Ireland. Because of the gold tint that the peridot enjoys, a true birthstone bouquet will include both greens and yellows; such as yellow lilies and snapdragons. This beautiful summer arrangement has combined the unusual Bells of Ireland bloom with summer yellow roses for a stunning peridot tribute that is as rare as the gem itself.
