All glassware and 21st birthday wish jar: c/o Top Shelf
One of my favorite things about college is the plethora of birthday celebrations that you get to be apart of. I have had the absolute best times over the past three and a half years celebrating the birthdays of dear friends of mine. There have been numerous dinners, luncheons, dorm room get-togethers, nights out on the town, and even a few classroom celebrations that I've had the pleasure to attend for different friends, as well of course as celebrating four of my own birthdays while in college!
But something that I didn't start to learn until last year was how much fun 21st birthday celebrations are. Celebrating someone near and dear in your life becoming a legal adult just takes the birthday fun and shenanigans to a whole new level! During the past few years, I was usually a DD for older friends who had their 21st birthdays, but this year now that I'm legal myself I can partake in all of the fun that 21st's entail!
My sweet sorority sister Mary turned 21 last week! Her birthday fell during the middle of the week, but some sisters and I made sure that she still got a chance to celebrate properly once the weekend arrived. One thing that I wanted to plan for Mary was a fun Wine Night. We held this at my sister Hannah's apartment (who is Mary's Big sister in ADPi), and the three of us had such fun trying out fun 21st birthday and sister-themed wine glasses!
My favorite thing that we got to do for Mary was give her one of Top Shelf's brand-new Wish Jars. These beautiful mason jars are filled with rolls of blank "wish tickets" which you can give to a lucky recipient- there are jars perfect for anyone with special birthdays, new homeowners, newly married or engaged couples, retirees, or many other special occasions! The friends and family of the guest(s) of honor then write their special wishes on each ticket, and the person receiving the jar can keep all of their wishes for years to come. Hannah and I had so much fun writing down wishes for Mary's 21st year- everything from silly inside jokes in our sorority, to more serious wishes for the rest of her college experience!
Top Shelf provides the perfect glassware and party accessories not only for birthdays, but for all of life's special occasions! I have linked some of my favorite Top Shelf glasses below:
