Birthday parties are inevitable in these days of lockdown and quarantine too. With kids attending school, art classes and all such activities online through video calls, birthday parties too can be organised online.
Decide on the date and time of the part, it better be over a weekend if you plan a lot of activities. Let’s start with the invitations. Send your guests a free electronic one; beautifully and thoughtfully designed by you. You’ll save what you’d normally spend on paper invites.
Things that need to be done in advance:
Though the celebration happens online, before the big event, the kid’s parents can deliver a package of goodies and supplies kids can use to enjoy physical activities during the virtual birthday party.
It would serve two purposes if you could choose crafts that double as favors. Try a personalized craft activity. It eliminates the need for hired entertainment and takes the place of a costly return favor bag.
Prices aren’t always better if you shop online, but browsing the web for your favors and decorations may help you with multiple options and choices.
Start hunting for supplies early; it’ll give you time to do comparisons. Plus, you’ll save yourself from running out at the last minute to buy overpriced things that you would have forgotten.
There are a large number of apps and sites offering interesting games to play online with your guests. Choose a few depending on the age group of your guests. Send the links to them prior to the start of the event so that you can save up on time.
Do the home decor and set the place with all required items and apps for the fun event to be organised.
At the time of the event/ birthday party:
Welcome the guests with the same enthusiasm as you would at a physical party. It is the enthusiasm and tone that would keep the party lively.
Apart from the cake cutting and singing wishes to the birthday baby, the events and games that are to be conducted is what will make the party memorable.
Towards the end of the party, you can send the guests a ‘Thank You’ card online that you have designed for them.
