If you are searching for the perfect birthday gift for a loved one who was born in August, then we have some gorgeous and unique gift ideas for these late summer celebrants. Your friends and family are special and unique and deserve a gift that reflects their bright personalities which is why the floral experts at Tobler’s Flowers have created extraordinary designs around the August birthstone, peridot.
Peridot is a beautiful, striking green gemstone that dates all the way back to ancient Egypt. The gem variety of from the Olivine mineral and comes in a light green to olive-green color. The intensity of the green color depends on the amount of iron present in the chemical structure of Peridot. More iron results in a deeper green color.
Our Favorite Peridot-Inspired August Bouquets
The peridot is sometimes called the poor man’s emerald because its green color is lighter than the more famous green jewel. The stone can be lime green, yellow-green, or olive green, and always has a golden cast that gives it its unique appearance. Because bouquets comprised of green s are relatively rare, they are both surprising and eye-catching. These bouquets have a truly different aesthetic, blending various green elements such as grasses and leaves with green orchids, roses, hydrangea, and mums. Often cream or yellow blooms are included to add the gold overtone.
Hydrangea & Calla Lilies
Here the abundant and full hydrangea in various shades of dark green and yellow-green captures the essence of the peridot’s color. The gorgeous purple calla lilies and smaller purple wax flowers contrast with the green to truly make it stand out.
Beautiful green Bells of Ireland with darker-green foliage contrasts wonderfully with bright yellow cymbidium orchid blooms, lavender stock, orange free spirit roses, veronica, and seeded eucalyptus. The light and dark greenery is beautifully offset by the brightly-colored centered blooms.
For a more subtle and sophisticated correlation to the Peridot Gem, then our “Pure Heaven” bouquet is a perfect choice. Inspire your recipient with pristine blooms bursting with radiant light. Garden Hydrangea, calla lilies, roses, lisianthus, and Peruvian Lilies are perfectly beautiful accented with lush vibrant greens.

Extravagant and gorgeous, the greenery used in the above bouquet reflects the deep and varying colors of the Peridot. Arching Calla Lilies in a deep purple color makes the green all the more striking.
As a birthstone, the peridot gem is often set in necklaces, rings, and bracelets. When fashion experts advise as to what types of colors are best to wear when accessorizing with peridot, they recommend vivid, deep jewel-toned colors. Our designers agree and often pair greenery in different shades with bright orange roses, yellow orchids, or purple calla lilies. These arrangements offer the same rare beauty as the stones that inspire them.
