Birthday planning for me can take an awful long time to pull together so I started off 6 months in advance for my other halves 21st birthday.
I started off with planning what to buy as a special gift. One that he would keep and treasure for a long long time.
The watch I bought him is Hugo Boss and is the trendiest watch I’ve ever laid eyes on. He’s always wanted a watch and I couldn’t think of a more perfect 21St gift.
I also bought him a watch stand so he keeps it away from being damaged. I found the stand on a personalised website, you can probably find one easily enough.
We went out for his birthday meal to a lovely curry restaurant with his family. Jay absolutely hates public arrays and was so embarrassed when they sang happy birthday to him.
After the meal we went back to his mums so he could cut the cake I made him. He demanded there would be donuts on it!
The cake had 6 layers with a Chocolate Fudge filling. I added gold ’21’ sparklers when I got to his mums.
I booked a surprise stay at the hilton in Manchester for us for a night and I also booked a surprise meal while we were in Manchester to make it extra special. I booked the table for us at the rosso restaurant.
I can’t go anywhere without having a pornstar martini!
We both had a lasagne for our main and shared a sorbet for dessert. The food here is absolutely gorgeous! All fresh and the waiters are very polite and attentive.
I would highly recommend the rosso restaurant to anyone who hasn’t been.
When we came back home I set up some coffee and cake for the afternoon so my auntie and nan could give Jay his presents.
About a week later jay’s birthday continued as we went out for another meal as a present off my auntie. We went for Mexican food at chiquitos.
This starter was amazing! Spicy chicken parcels.
Obviously Jay had garlic bread! I even tried jalapeño poppers which weren’t even spicy/hot like at all! They were cream cheese stuffed jalapeños and coated in bread crumbs.
TACO’S. Love them, just hate the onion part but I did eat them on it until the last two as they were cold. Yes, I can be fussy with food haha
So after all the birthday celebrations, we’ve been waiting for his last present for the past month. I’ve booked for us to go Amsterdam!! Only a few days to go.
Sorry for the very late post on this one guys! I’ve been exhaustingly busy again, I’ll be glad to get this break!
Love, V x
