Choose carnations for January birthday flowers

by webdev

January 10, 2012

Flowers are a perfect way to celebrate the birthday of a friend, family member or partner. While bouquets for this occasion can range from simple to extravagant, there are ways to add a personal touch to your birthday gift.

Choosing a bouquet of your loved one's favorite bloom is thoughtful, but if you don't know what it is, reaching for his or her birth flower is just as good. For January babies, purchase arrangements that feature carnations, a plant that originated in the Near East more than 2,000 years ago.

Because it has been around for so long, the carnation has been cultivated to bloom in nearly endless color combinations. While carnations have gained a name for themselves as the January birth flower, they symbolize different things in different parts of the world, according to In Rome, the bloom was known as "Jove's Flower" after a Roman god. In Korea, young girls will adorn their hair with carnations, believing that the order in which the flowers die will signify the order in which they will face difficulty in their lives.

Options like Teleflora's Pink Notion Vase or Precious Love bouquet highlight the carnation's beauty.
