A beautiful bouquet goes hand in hand with a birthday card and has for as long as we can remember. Though we create many arrangements here at Amazing Graze, the most frequent and moving orders are usually those put together to celebrate a birthday. Whether you’re turning 16, or 60, everybody appreciates receiving an arrangement of fragrant flowers that send a note of appreciation and love on a special day.
Using the secret language of flowers, or floriography, you can send meaningful messages to your loved ones through a bouquet. Why not create an arrangement that features the receiver's birth flower and make your bouquet that much more significant? For those who are looking to order some blooms for the next birthday on their calendar, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of our best birthday bouquet recommendations by month.
