Hauls - Birthday Haul - 21st Birthday

Just over a week ago was my 21st Birthday, so that's why I haven't been on here for a while it's been a manic week or so for me with family visiting and celebrating two Birthdays mine and my mums.

On my actual 21st I had a family BBQ, to celebrate mine and mums Birthdays. We were very lucky that it stayed sunny and was lovely and warm too.

We had a typical BBQ with delicious meat from our local butcher, far far better than supermarket meat. Various cheesecakes for dessert, Birthday cake (even though that ended up being eat the next day) and some refreshing drinks.

Pictures below...♡

Thank you to all who wished me a Happy Birthday and to all for my lovely cards and gifts.

Things - DIY - Jar Drinking Cup

I've always thought there's something cute about drinks in jars so I had a look around and places like Amazon sell some plastic versions with lids for about £11ish which is quite expensive for a cup, so I decided I would make one myself.

Things You Will Need...♡ 

Jar - I used a large Kilner purchased from Dunelm Mill - £2.50
Grommets (4) - Halfords - £1.59
Straws (25) - Hobby Craft - £2.99

You need to mark the lid like seen below...

Drill through the mark (my Dad kindly did mine), then simply place the grommet in and they're done!

Here's the finished look with a cute chevron baby blue straw so cute!

Here's a summer fruit infused water in my jar (without lid!) it was delicious.
