When my brother turned 21 in November, I didn’t give him his present until February. Karly (his girlfriend) turned 21 in February and I didn’t get her her present in this past weekend. Some how I am getting worse at being on time. I really like to think that I am simply helping extend these exciting milestones and celebrating for the entire year!
I gave my brother a bar cart basket filled with mini bottles of all kinds of alcohol, a couple cocktail mixing essentials, and a basket for it all. So for Karly, I knew I wanted to do something similar.
I picked up a plastic tray from Target, one that I did not like the style/design, but one where the shape and quality were what I was looking for. I spray painted it navy and got to work decorating it. I faked calligraphy-ed “fancy another?”, “cheers”, and “cocktails here” around the edges, added fancy another on the inside, and a couple dots. I added a mini bottle of champagne, some drink stirrers, and a wine bottle topper and wrapped it up!
I have to say mini bottles of champagne are the best. I like being able to have a glass and half with out wasting an entire bottle. I think a couple of the little bottles should be a staple in any fridge.
Sadly I think that was the last 21st birthday I will be celebrating along with for a while! They have been my most favorite to gift for!
