Manly Men Men Men

My almost-BIL (my cousin's husband) had a birthday this weekend. I made him the manliest bouquet you have ever seen--booze, cigars, and moustaches!

Another pinterest success! I got the original idea here. I found the printable moustaches here. Something was up with my printer, so they printed in plaid rather than in black. The best screw-up ever! I had the pot in the basement. I bought a styrofoam disk and moss at AC Moore to hold (and cover up) the bamboo skewers I got at the grocery store. I had a really nice guy help me at the local cigar store (no web presence, d'oh). I looked for a printable "happy birthday" but the one I really wanted said "happy birthday, babe" which would have been totally inappropriate. So I made it myself in word. Everything is attached to the skewers with Glue Dots glue lines. Just a note, they worked much better on the square bottles than on the round ones. Total cost: $45 but you can make different choices about the cigars--which is where most of that cost came from.

The birthday boy liked it.

The guy at the cigar store said, "that's a great gift and presentation."

Its' man approved!
