October birth flower
Every month is associated with a particular flower. The flower for the month of October is the marigold or calendula. These bright and full-looking flowers can be displayed in so many ways. They are great inside the home as well as in the garden.
These flowers are known for sending a message of warmth, elegance, and devotion. A bunch of marigolds looks lovely in a modest vase. Remember, if the stems aren’t particularly long, you will need to choose a shorter vase in order to achieve the right effect.
Marigolds also make lovely floating arrangements. Simply pick several flowers and trim the stems as short as possible. Take care not to cut them too short or the flower could end up falling apart. Place the flowers in a vase or bowl of water and enjoy! Remember to look for flowers with slight colour differences rather than trying to match their orange shade perfectly. The various shades make for an even more spectacular end result.
The shape of this flower also makes it ideal for creating floral balls. Using a floral foam sphere as a base, cover the entire green surface with these glorious flowers. Remember to attach your ribbon first and make sure that it’s a satin or fabric ribbon rather than one made from paper.
If you would like to mix things up, you can combine marigolds with several other flowers such as roses, chrysanthemums, and any other flower from the daisy family to create an abundant-looking bouquet. Colours that look great with bright orange marigolds include white, off-white, and even a splash of dark orange. Don’t forget to add some foliage for good measure.
If you are looking for the perfect birthday flowers for October, keep marigolds in mind. Even if you order a bouquet of fresh flowers from your local florist, you can always add some homegrown marigolds from your garden too.
