In the ancient Roman Empire, a goddess named Flora was worshiped by everyone. Since she was a symbol of the harvest and springtime, the Romans used to pick the most beautiful flowers they could find to offer to Flora in order to receive her blessing. Then, as time went by, this tradition took another form since the flowers were meant to bring luck and prosperity to the people who received them.

Nowadays, whether you offer flowers in person or you use a flower delivery service, the intention is still somewhat the same. You do want to make someone happy, but the fact that this act has also taken on a more personal meaning.

Flowers for a birth: an unforgettable gift

Nowadays, it is customary to mark the arrival of a newborn with precious gifts such as flowers to welcome the baby. They are often linked to life and make the event exceptional. Flower bouquets and arrangements, on the occasion of a birth, express joy and renewal.

There are many reasons why giving flowers to welcome a new baby into the world is an excellent choice. First, all women love flowers! And young moms even more! Receiving birth flower arrangements marks the occasion and conveys a message of joy and congratulations. As life is filled, with the birth of a fragile little one, it is for the new mother that the message is intended. Flowers express strong feelings and are always interpreted positively.

Did you know that each month is associated with a type of flower ?

Birth month flowers are a tradition that goes back to ancient times. Each month of the year is assigned a flower, which has a particular symbolism. In fact, just as you can give a loved one a piece of jewelry with his or her birthstone on it, it is possible to create a floral arrangement featuring the flower matching the month of birth of the newborn. Here are baby flower names or gifts for new parents or welcome newborns with flowers that match each of the 12 months of the year:

  • January: Carnation or Snowdrop
  • February: Violet or Primrose
  • March: Daffodil
  • April: Sweet pea or Rudbeckia
  • May: Lily of the valley and Hawthorn
  • June: Rose or Honeysuckle
  • July: Water lily or Larkspur
  • August: Poppy or the Gladiolus
  • September: Aster or the Queen daisy
  • October: Gardenia or Marigold
  • November: Hrysanthemum
  • December: Narcissus or Holly.

Florists are masters at designing adorable Birth month flower arrangements. They will be willing to help you choose the right variety for your Birth month flowers.

A very original birth flower arrangement!

If you are looking for an even more original gift, here is a suggestion to make a real impact: create a birth bouquet combining fresh flowers and small gifts. The idea is to roll up clothes and accessories for newborns (pajamas, bodysuits, bibs, hats...) to imitate a cone reminiscent of the shape of a rose. With the help of a florist, all you have to do is add beautiful flowers in your creation that match the colors of the newborn baby's kit. This is definitely a gift that will delight the new mother as well.

To change a little from the traditional floral arrangement, you can find some unusual floral gifts designed to impress young parents. Moreover, these gifts can be kept for years. So they will be a wonderful reminder of a baby's first days of life, and the joy that comes with it.

A crown of flowers

This original gift can be worn by a baby during a photo session, or even during his baptism. To mark the occasion and also celebrate the young mother, it is possible to offer a pair of matching crowns for her and her child.

A perennial flowering plant, to see it bloom every year

For a family involved in nature and gardening, you can direct your choice to a perennial flowering plant, such as a Bougainvillea, Hydrangea, Fuchsia, or even an Arum that can be replanted in the garden and bloom every year on the baby's birthday.

A teddy bear in roses

If you want to give a flowery gift that can also be a decoration for the baby's room, you can opt for a teddy bear made of roses! This tender little teddy bear, which comes in many colors, will sublimate the room of the child and be part of his first years.

If you are hoping to give a Flower arrangement that will be future-proof and that baby will appreciate over the years, it is also possible to go for artificial flowers. Either way, the florist can help you to "bring to life" the most adorable birth bouquet.
