Mom's Guide to Each Month's Unique Birth Flower

March 04, 2024 4 min read

Back in the day, when expressing feelings was a bit hush-hush, people turned to flowers as their secret language. Each bloom carried a special meaning, creating a unique way to say things without saying anything at all. 

Fast forward to now, and we've got birth flowers, a charming tradition that gives a special floral buddy to each month.

So, where did it all start? Think Victorian era, where subtlety was key, and emotions were whispered through flowers. The cool part? It was like sending a secret floral message! 

The American National Retail Florist Association took this idea and ran with it in 1912, giving us the official birth flowers we know and love today.

Now, why should you care? Well, besides being pretty, these blooms have stories to tell and traits to share. They're like little companions, each with its own vibe, each with its own personality. 

So, next time you're picking flowers or someone hands you a bouquet, remember, it's not just about the petals – it's nature's way of saying, "Hey! Here's a special bloom and a secret message just for you!”

Now that we've planted the seed of curiosity about birth flowers, let's dig in!
