19th birthday ideas
1. Opt for big balloons
The oldie but the goodie, this is an amazing way to treat yourself on your birthday and the perfect backdrop to your birthday snaps!
2. Start a miniature garden
These can also be known as fairy gardens! This is an amazing idea if you have a small space or don’t even have your own outdoor space as you can make an indoor mini garden as well! Use there are so many cool benefits to planting a mini garden, it can be so therapeutic and such an amazing activity. Use a plant pot or basin to create your garden, mini stones and gravel for the paths, grow herbs; indoor bonsai are great to make mini trees and plants like Dwarf Mondo Grass and Baby Tears are perfect for greenery and shrubbery. You can watch them grow as you grow as a person (a bit cheesy but true!)

4. Hold a puppy party
Invite your friends and their dogs too, as a little celebratory get together for your pets. You could even bake them a dog friendly cake to share!

Why not ask to rent or buy a special garden space as part of your birthday present, or if you live on campus, ask around if there is a small outdoor garden or green space you can take care of.

You will be helping the wildlife in your area at the same time! All your subsequent birthdays can be flower filled and you can decorate your garden for special occasions with bunting, channel your cottagecore flair!
You can even use your garden to grow some fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as a variety of flora and fauna.
