January is the first month of the New Year with its winter magic. Of course, people have birthdays in this month as well and if you could surprise them with something special, it would be so touching. Art Flowers LA would love to tell you more about flowers that represent January and what they mean and symbolize so that you can choose your perfect January birthday flower gift.
January official flowers
There are two main birthday flowers of January – the carnation and the snowdrop.
Let’s start with carnations. Our florists love carnations! Carnations could be in both small and medium size. They have round shaped buttons around three to six cm in diameter. The petals are layered and separated and sometimes have ruffled edges. This bloom is so fragrant and you do not confuse the scent with anything. Carnations have so many colors, you can just imagine. They come in white, pink, red, purple, green, yellow, burgundy, and brown. Sometimes these blooms even have stripes. They are so colorful and beautiful! You can pick any color to match in different bouquets or flower arrangements to give them texture and their gorgeous look. Do not forget about the special meaning that carnations symbolize. They mean love and fascination. Also they mean pure love of mother because from the legend Virgin Mary was watching Jesus carrying the cross and cried, and her tears became carnations. So that people think that carnations are Mother’s Day flowers to honor our lovely mothers. Fresh carnations are long-lasting flowers, and they can last up to 21 days (almost 3 weeks). Just remember, do not leave them on direct light and near heaters, and you can enjoy these stunning blooms for a long time. That is why florists all over the world love arranging them! It is a perfect addition to any bouquet or centerpiece to make it more interesting and textured. You can find really rare colors of them that sometimes people do not believe that it is just a carnation.
The other flower for January birthday is the snowdrop. Snowdrops are bell shaped flowers, which have 6 petals – three outer petals and three smaller inner petals, with a straight stem with linear leaves. They usually have white colors, but rare species sometimes could be purple, blue, or even pink. Their fragrance is light and sweet. Snowdrops symbolize rebirth and new beginnings, they literally poke out of snow to tell you – nothing bad happened, life is perfect, you overcome your challenges, just hope. Usually these beauties start blooming from January to March, but it depends on the winter. If the weather is warm and not too freezing during winter, so they can start blooming in December or even in late November. They are one of the first blooms that appear in the New Year. If you want to encourage and support someone, it would be a perfect gift for him or her. The interesting fact is that snowdrops contain alkaloid in their stems, bulbs and stems so that they are kind of poisonous and can cause nausea and diarrhea. But in medicine they can be used to help with headache, migraine, and even Alzheimer’s disease. But be careful they are toxic to your pets. These gorgeous blooms are also endangered.
Now you know symbolize and meaning of the official birth flowers of January but there are so many other gorgeous flowers that you can use for your January flower arrangements, not only carnations and snowdrops. Only imagine stunning yellow winter jasmine, colorful iris, crocus, vibrant amaryllis, anthurium, and beautiful narcissus. They are all so gorgeous that could be a perfect addition to your January floral arrangements.
Our talented florists could mix these flowers with different tones and colors of them in bouquets, in our luxury velvet boxes or even in heart shaped flower boxes. For example, imagine a red bouquet with red bright amaryllis, carnations, and white roses with eucalyptus – such a masterpiece!
You have so many choices of flower arrangements to make your loved one happy and thankful on her or his birthday!
If you are thinking about some flowers that last longer than cut ones – think about anthurium in a pot, maybe succulents, or how about classic orchids? It is not only a good gift but also it will fill a home with a warm attitude and decorate your home.
