YOUR JULY BIRTHDAY!

Happy July Birthday—You Natural Nurturers and Stage Seekers 

YOUR JULY BIRTHDAY! “All the world’s a stage”

—William Shakespeare

Right at home as the center of attention, those born during the month of July have a noticeable “stage presence.” Not only are they comfortable being in the spotlight, but they can help others feel at ease, too. As much as they may crave attention, they’re also intensely private, so picture them at a masquerade ball where they’d dazzle others with their costume while hiding behind their party mask.

Cancer

If born a Cancer, you’re an emotional creature of habit whose moods can shift, but with a predictability and consistency. A deep, sensitive soul who adores the comforts of home, you value not only your privacy, but recognize others’ need for privacy as well. A nurturing spirit and defender of the family, you seek peace and tranquility in a domestic setting, but at the same time, go to bat in a heartbeat for those you care about. Memories are of the utmost importance to you, so you enjoy hobbies like scrap-booking and anything else that preserves those precious moments.

Leo

What can we say, Leo? You lead, take center stage, and are the king of your castle! Generous and open-hearted, you love and are affectionate with those you care about. Taking great pride in whatever you do, you operate with a certainty that others can envy, but being as generous as you are, you willing helps others achieve their dreams. For if others admire your creations and try to mimic them, you can’t help but smile with pride and feel flattered.

YOUR JULY BIRTHDAY! July Flower

July’s birth flower, the Larkspur, get its scientific name, delphinium, from the Greek word, delphis, meaning “dolphin,” although its use in birthday celebrations dates back to the Roman Empire. Its more colloquial meaning is that of an open heart and great passion. The spur part of the flower is shaped like the hind toe of the lark, hence its more common name. Used medicinally in ancient times to heal wounds, its nectar is popular among butterflies and bumblebees. Nowadays, it is used decoratively in bouquets and other flower arrangements, for it stands out due to its considerable height.

July Birthstone

Your birthstone, the ruby, comes from the Latin, YOUR JULY BIRTHDAY! rubens, meaning “red.” Originally mined in the country of Burma in 2500 B.C., it has a history of being used by shaman for its healing and protective qualities, especially when worn next to an affected area. It’s also considered helpful in boosting energy and bringing about much prosperity. This precious red gemstone can also be made into jewelry, and has been a favorite among the rich and famous, most notably Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Making Memorable Birthday Celebrations for Kids!

Making Memorable Birthday Celebrations for Kids!Put on those colorful party hats, light those candle sparklers, and make a wish!  It’s time for birthday magic! Planning an unforgettable birthday party can be as much fun as the party itself.  Kid’s birthdays are a special treat, and the exciting possibilities are endless.  Make that birthday bash memorable with these fun tips and creative theme suggestions, and you’ll be on your way to birthday party heaven!

Birthday party themes we love for boys:

  • Cowboys and the Old West 
  • Sports-mania
  • Astronaut Adventure
  • Superhero Madness
  • Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Predators

Birthday party themes we love for girls:

  • Princess Paradise 
  • Ballerina Ball
  • Sport Spectacular
  • Circus Dream
  • Girls Rock

Fun Birthday Games!

Game ideas should match the theme. Consider updating an old favorite of yours from when you were little – think, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but with a cowboy theme.  Schedule brainstorming sessions among the organizers to have a host of games ready for all the party-goers – and don’t forget special prizes for all the winners.

Tasty Treats!

The question is what to serve in addition to the birthday cake and ice cream?   The theme will give your “party chefs” a range of options, but don’t stop there!  Up the fun-factor and give the menu items special names. Try “Outlaw burgers and fast-trigger fries” for cowboy theme.  Go one step further and create a graphic-designed menu to send along with the birthday party invitations. 

Birthday Greetings

A fun alternative to traditional birthday cards are fun birthday eCards. Choose from funny talking birthday eCards, interactive birthday ecards, and even a fun interactive game! You can find all of these options and more at BlueMountain.com.
