If somebody you know is celebrating their birthday in May and you are looking for thoughtful gift ideas, fresh May birthday flower arrangements are perfect! When shopping for birthday blooms, there are a few tips that you can keep in mind to ensure that the recipient feels truly special.
Flowers for May birthdays
There are no strict rules when it comes to May birthday flower bouquets. However, if you want to take a more traditional approach, you should consider a bouquet that includes Lily of the Valley. This bloom is associated with the month of May which is why it is perfect. When adding these blooms to any bouquet, it’s important that you take care since all parts of the plant are poisonous. They are especially dangerous for animals. If the intended recipient has pets, this might not be the best birthday flower to send. Of course, you should not give up home, there are other amazing options that will not pose any risk to precious pets.
May birthday flower arrangements can take many forms and colours. If you want a bouquet with a traditional touch, you should consider flowers that reflect the beauty of the May birthstone. The gemstone for this month is the emerald. This means that you need a bouquet that incorporates plenty of green elements and lush foliage.
If neither of these types of May birthday flower bouquets are available, you could always take a moment to think about what the recipient will enjoy most. If they are partial to roses, sunflowers, tulips or another type of flower, you should try to include them in the floral gift. Alternatively, if they have a specific favourite colour, you can ask your florist to design a bouquet that consists of this colour.
Remember, once you have selected your May birthday flower gift, you should consider adding something extra to your order too. Many florists offer optional extras such as luxury chocolates, wine, balloons and even birthday cakes! You don’t even have to limit yourself to one extra item! You can select a few and make your gift truly memorable.
