Fresh flowers for him

There are some common misconceptions when it comes to sending fresh flowers. One of which is that you can only send blooms to a female recipient. This is not entirely the case. When you wish to send a bouquet to a male recipient, here is a great way of putting together a design that he will love.

What you need:

  • A small toy truck with an open back to hold the blooms

  • Floral foam with a plastic tray that will fit into the back of the truck

  • Fresh flowers in bright colours

  • Flower food

  • A sharp pair of scissors


  • The first thing you need to do is choose the right truck to hold the flower arrangement. Unlike a vase or a hand tied bouquet, you are creating the perfect foundation for a masculine display

  • Next, you need to choose a plastic tray that will fit inside the back of the truck and cut your floral foam to fit as well.

  • Soak the floral foam in water with some flower food. This will help keep the blooms hydrated and it will provide them with nutrients to ensure that they last as long as possible.

  • Next, you will need to start arranging your flowers and foliage. Start by placing foliage around the lower rim to conceal the floral foam.

  • Next, you will need to add your main or focal blooms. You should choose bright, larger flowers and decide between placing them in the centre or spaced out around the entire arrangement.

  • Once you have placed your focal blooms, it’s time to add mass and filler flowers. You can add some foliage in between too if you spot any gaps.

  • After arranging all of your fresh flowers and greenery, you should inspect the arrangement from all angles to make sure it is balanced and complete before presenting it to the very lucky recipient.

As you can see, it really is easy to create a beautiful arrangement with fresh flowers perfect for any man. Don’t forget, no matter the occasion, you should also include a card with a personal message just for him.
