Everyone loves receiving flowers for their birthday. With advanced notice, you can ask your local florist to combine seasonal flowers with greens and other elements to make a very creative and unusual flower arrangement for a family member or friend. Here are some ideas that you can ask your florist to create when gifting flowers to a loved one for their birthday:
Sculpted Flowers: Your florist can create a sculpted birthday cake completely out of flowers and fruit and place it on a glass cake stand. Ask your florist to combine the flowers on the sculpted cake with seasonal fruits such as whole strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and green and purple grapes. Pineapples and apples can also be sliced and cut into the shapes of flowers and placed around the edges of the sculpted birthday cake next to the flowers. The addition of these fruits will add a variety of different shapes and colors to the flowers of the sculpted birthday cake.
Zodiac Flowers: Find the astrological flower symbol for the person who is having a birthday and ask your florist to create a floral birthday arrangement or bouquet using that particular flower as the main element. Choosing one specific flower as the dominant flower in an arrangement will simplify the color and look of the flower arrangement when paired with small accent flowers and green leaves. If the birthday person has children, you can ask your florist to also use the astrological flower symbols for each of the children for a flower arrangement with more colors and shapes.
Scenic Flowers: Ask your florist to create a fantasy scene completely out of flowers, grasses, and moss. This scene can be placed on a large tray with a central vase of additional flowers to give the arrangement some height. Trees in the fantasy scene can be created out of chrysanthemums, dahlias, roses, and other long-stemmed flowers. Small squirrels, rabbits, and other creatures can be made out of floral foam, moss, leaves, and berries. These creatures can add a bit of humor to the floral fantasy scene.
Gifts With Flowers: Wrap small gifts for the person who is having a birthday and give them to your florist. Ask your florist to mount the small wrapped gifts on bamboo or willow branches and intersperse them with the flowers in a flower arrangement. Wrap all of the small gifts in the same wrapping paper and ribbon to make them easy to harmonize with the colors of the flowers in the arrangement.
Contact your florist a week or two ahead of time to tell them that you will want them to create an unusual arrangement. Ask them what flowers will be plentiful during that time of year so you can coordinate the color of your small gifts and birthday cards to harmonize with the flowers that your florist will use. With a bit of time and research, you and your florist can create a unique flower arrangement that your family member or friend will always remember.
