The Right Flowers for an October Birthday

Share the flowers!

Finding the right flowers to send an October birthday bouquet can be tricky because the birth flower for October is the marigold. Marigolds are not typically found in bouquets and definitely not the easiest flower to track down if you want the convenience of calling a floral shop and sending a bouquet. A great alternative to marigolds are blue flowers since the birthstone for October is the sapphire. In fact, many October birthday flower recipients are more likely to know the symbolism of the color of their birthstone than to receive their actual birth flowers. Here are a few of our favorite blue bouquets for those October birthday celebrations:

Blue Roses

Blue roses are a fun way to say “Happy Birthday” to your favorite October birthday boy or girl. This dazzling blue rose bouquet comes with 12, 18, 24, or 36 stems that are beautifully arranged in a silver julep cup vase. What we love about this bouquet is that it comes with a bonus gift of a gorgeous blue sapphire pendant, further emphasizing the symbolic blue shade of the roses.

This beautiful plant features small hydrangeas in a deep blue, that are planted in a cheerful bright green planter with natural fibers. The best part about a plant is that the recipient can keep it much longer than a regular bouquet.
