Yes, you heard it right, I said man-rangement. Sure I made that word up, but that's exactly what today's post is all about, men + arrangements. Flowers are beautiful, there's no doubt, and what lady doesn't love receiving them for special occasions, or just because. But it's a little tougher sometimes to buy for dudes. Not all guys appreciate a good floral arrangement.
When a client approached me about making one for her and her husbands one year anniversary, I was totally up for the challenge. I had done her wedding flowers the year before, and her husband was a big fan of billy balls. They were the jumping off point for the design.
I wanted the arrangement to last past one week, so I actually planted some of the elements in the post, including some chicks and hen succulents, and dark maroon sedum. I added in some fresh cut floral elements too, keeping things textural and simple, like poppy pods, pin cushion protea, and of course billy balls.
I thought that it was the perfect balance of manly and natural, and my client and her husband loved it. It's a super simple arrangement to put together, so on the next special occasion you have with your guy, try making him your own man-rangement.
