How to throw a lockdown birthday party
If there’s one thing that lockdown has taught us, it’s how to be resourceful when it comes to having fun. Friday nights down the local have morphed into dial-in quizzes, we’ve blushed our way through one too many virtual hen parties, and we’ve yelled “you’re on mute!” more times than we’ve stepped outside. If you were lucky enough to escape a lockdown birthday in 2020, then never fear – we’ve got everything you need to make your socially distanced soiree one to remember.
Of course there are many different versions of what a Lockdown Birthday Party can be depending on the current state of actual lockdown, tiers, time of year etc. You may be home alone on Zoom to your friends or family, you may be able to have 6 of your family or friends around to your house or you may even be able to have a full on festival birthday party in your back garden. Which ever option you have been dealt just remember this is hopefully a one off so why not just roll with it and have as much fun as possible.
Planning your Lockdown Birthday Party
Choose a date
If you’re hosting a lockdown birthday party, chances are it’s going to be online. Use a shared calendar to find out when your pals are available, there are lots of great free ones online.
Set a Birthday Party Theme, Festival theme birthday parties would be our recommendation 🙂
We’re biased, obviously, but there’s nothing like a little festival flair to get everyone in the mood to have fun. Festivals remind everyone of a time when we could all get a bit *too* close, sing without masks on, and revel in music and activities without having to book ahead. Throw back to these simpler times by making sure your party has great tunes (perhaps a shared playlist), some hilarious festival crafts (flower crown, anyone?), and plenty of warm cocktails. Yum. So yes a festival themed birthday party is exactly what we would recommend, but of course there is other less fun options available 🙂 See below some photos from our awesome customers festival themed lockdown birthday parties last summer…
Pop to the Post Office
With a date secured and a theme nailed, it’s time to let the lucky few know they’ve made the guestlist for the party of the season. Send a care package to each attendee with a few goodies inside – we recommend a whistle, a glowstick, one of our festival birthday party wristbands and a Festival Birthday Party VIP lanyard…similar to these awesome examples we offer below… this is an exclusive event, after all.
Decorate, decorate, decorate
We can hardly think of a problem that isn’t made at least a bit better by the presence of streamers, and a pandemic is no exception. From flags to pom poms, bunting to glitter curtains, there’s a wealth of decorative goodness to be found online to spruce up your party palace. For bonus points, get crafty and make some of your own – it’ll help wile away the lockdown days and it’s way more fun.
Dress to the nines!
Well, if you can’t wear head to toe sequins to your living room, then where can you?! Make sure you and your guests are in full festival clobber, with a prize for the best dressed. Your wristband and lanyard will help fool even the most experienced festival-goer into thinking this event is the real deal.
