Yes, this is a slightly overdue post (almost 3 weeks!) but nevertheless I still want to share this milestone with you all :)

Tuesday 9th August marked the coming of my 21st Birthday- the BIG 2 1, the time to start investing in some good wrinkle cream & start thinking seriously about life, relationships, work blah blah blah & the slight niggling feeling that you are no longer a teenager & you should start growing up. Just me? I thought so!

Anyways, your probably all thinking, cor I bet you had a messy one- downed a dozen Jagers, danced provocatively on a really sticky table in an extremely dark club & that the rest of the night was a complete blur of my best friend trying to order a burger from a puzzled looking Turkish guy, my other best friend tearing off her dress in the highstreet & insisting that we all must join her unless we all wanted to be abducted by silver men, an extremely incoherent conversation with a 60 year old taxi driver about the pro's & con's of wearing stiletto heels & another friend dry humping a very lucky wheelie bin in the darkness.

Thankfully none of this actually happened, as going out drinking till the early hours & not remembering what happened the previous night is not really my idea of fun. So instead of this thrilling account of events that could have happened on my 21st, I decided to settled for something slightly more casual & chilled out.

I had a garden party with my family, close friends & people who myself & my parents have known for years. There was no theme but I suppose you could say I used the influences of the countryside & nature around me to decorate the tables & garden. I framed various photo's of myself throughout the ages to act as center pieces for each table & next to it I laid 6 Lavender pieces with rose petals sprinkled around the table. & not forgetting to add a candle to add some ambiance! Also I literally threw a rug & many cushions on the grass near the stream so that people could catch some rays whilst sipping mojitos :)
