Birth flowers are real, find out yours!

Birthdays, not only are they fun because you get presents, they are also very fun, because there are all manner of fun games to play to find out more about your personality. And birth flowers are a thing! So, let’s find out yours!

January – Carnation and Snowdrop

Carnations symbolise pure love and good luck, and snowdrops symbolise rebirth and purity. Both very fitting meanings for the first cold month of the year. Can you relate?

February – Primrose and Violet

In the Victorian era, primrose blossoms were thought to symbolize young love, bashfulness, and the feeling of not being able to live without someone. How romantic! Violets, on the other hand, represent innocence. Are you innocent enough to not be able to live with someone you love?

March – Daffodil

Herald of spring, this yellow beauty symbolises creativity and vitality. Are you creative and born in March?

April – Daisy and Sweet Pea

Daisies symbolise youth and innocence and Sweet peas stand for blissful pleasure. Which one are you?

May – Lily of the valley

Finland’s national flower is also the flower for May. Humble and happy, these flowers bloom abundantly. Will you give this to your best friend born in May?

June – Rose

Different colours have different meanings for Roses. Red roses signify love, while orange roses signify desire. Which one feels best for your personality?

July – Larkspur and water lily

Although waterlilies don’t do well in a vase, larkspurs are gorgeous and can communicate intense romantic feelings.

August – Gladiolus and Poppy

Sweet red poppies are known as the symbol of sleep and death, but also peace. Gladiolus are a symbol for strength and integrity. In ancient times, they were considered magical!

September – Aster and Morning Glory

Patient love and love in vain, two opposing meanings for the two birth flowers of September. But they will make an interesting arrangement!

October – Marigolds

A fitting flower for the season in bright orange, yellow and red. They mean undying love and thinking of you. Sometimes they symbolise grief and are used in Mexican funeral rituals.

November – Chrysanthemum

These cute little flowers symbolise cheer and friendship, so you are probably a great pal if you are born in November. Right?

December – Holly

A very fitting flower for the winter season. They show a desire for a happy home. Are you a home body?

Flowers

Flowers and mourning, what do they mean?

As far back as the ancient Egyptians, humans use flowers to remember and mourned the deceased. In Hawaii, they use flower garlands such as Lei’s for happy moments, but also for funerals. In Mexico, sugar skulls and flowers are used to celebrate the Day of the Dead, on November the 1st. But what do different flowers symbolize?

Lilies

Somehow Lilies are intrinsically interwoven with the smell of funerals. And because of this, some people really dislike lilies. But this regal flower is not just the fragrance of funeral homes, it actually symbolizes the soul of the deceased returned to a peaceful state of innocence. I bet you did not know that!

Roses

Roses, and especially white roses are a common flower for funerals. They are the ultimate symbol of spirituality and purity and are fit to say goodbye to our beloved ones.

Chrysanthemums

In Asia this flower symbolises rebirth, so they can also be given at baby showers. In Europe they mainly symbolise honour and sympathy.

Calla Lily

The Calla stands for purity and the shape is good for arrangements that are made for lying down. Pick this in a modern colour to give the flower arrangement a more modern twist.

Dahlia

Dahlia are the flower of the moment and they symbolise, amongst other things: forever yours. Which is a beautiful message for a lover passed away.
