The 21st birthday is a big one, possibly the BIGGEST and therefore needs to be the BEST. An outrageous celebration with copious amounts of alcohol, fun and games is therefore a must. Well, we’ve put together 10 simple steps for you to follow in order to have the best 21st birthday party yet!
First of all you need to do the preparations:
1. Make a play list of party tunes on your iPod. Make sure it’s some upbeat tunes, something that’s going to set the atmosphere and get people up and dancing!
2. Plug the iPod into the Rock Amp and place out of the way. On a high shelf would be ideal, so it’s out of the way from potential spillages and everyone can hear the music!
3. Prepare the Vodka Jelly Mould. Begin by mixing 300ml of boiling water (in a jug) with your chosen jelly flavour. Then add vodka and mix well. Pour the mixture into the Vodka Jelly Mould and allow it to set. Once ready, place the vodka jelly contents onto a plate so it’s ready to serve.
4. Next, take out the Giant Wine Glasses and an equal number of wine bottles (yep, it’s one glass per bottle). Crack open the bottle and pour all contents of bottle into glass.
5. Repeat step four until all wine bottles are empty.
6. Take out the Black Wine Glasses for those non-alcoholics attending the party and fill with your chosen wine.
7. Add the Jager Bombs! Place the Jagermeister into the centre of the cup to the desired level, and then add the red bull to the remaining areas.
8. Repeat step seven until all Jager Bomb glasses are filled.
9. Fill up the Ice Diamond tray with water and place in the freezer, leaving it until frozen.
10. Take the Ice Shots and fill with your chosen beverage. Then place the shots into the freezer until frozen.

Festival Essentials – we’ve got it all!
I bought the retro poncho for Parklife Festival in Manchester this year! The weather forecasted for a few light showers but nothing major, but for only a fiver i bought the retro poncho to make sure i had something just incase, and what a saviour it was! The saturday hurled it down with rain and the stalls that were selling waterproofs quickly ran out. So i got my retro poncho out my back pocket and pulled it over my head and i stayed dry throughout the showers whilst others had to fork out a small fortune for an awful, barely even waterproof contraption! Or even worse, they didn’t get one at all! I would strongly advise to go prepared to any festival no matter what the forecast says because you just never know what the clouds may bring! Probably the best fiver i ever spent on a fest!
