Today we want to share with you something special:
Socially Distant Birthday Party Ideas - Virtual Birthday Party
With social distancing rules still in place across the country, it seems that large-scale parties are still a long way off.
But just because she can't host that 20-person dinner she's always dreamed of, or rent her favorite bar for a loud night out, doesn't mean her birthday doesn't have to be celebrated.
You can still make your day special, even if you celebrate it virtually or on a much smaller scale than originally planned. It just takes a little creativity.
Whether you spend an evening toasting with your roommates and family or hosting a virtual get-together for all of your loved ones, there are many ways to make this anniversary unforgettable.
Read on to discover nine creative ways to celebrate your birthday and be socially distant at the same time.
Have a Self-Indulgent Self-Care Day
Even under normal circumstances, pampering yourself during the day is a classic birthday gift for a reason. What better way to welcome a new year of life than with a day of relaxation and pleasure.
And while it may not be possible to go to a spa to get your favorite treatments right now, you can still pay for them at home. Whether you choose a bath bomb, mask, home manicure, or all of the above, you are sure to feel calm and rejuvenated.
Revisit Family Traditions, Virtually
Consider celebrating your birthday with a new version of the long family tradition.
We know the whole family can't be together to celebrate or feast on that favorite iced birthday cake, you could make sure each faction of the family had their own cake (yes, that meant collecting multiples of the same cake and coordinating a cake safely and confident, surrender, socially distant).
When everyone joins for Zoom's birthday party, the whole family can enjoy the sweet birthday cake together. This will only show that if there is a birthday tradition that deters you from losing, being creative and virtually recreating it is always an option.
Have a Virtual Game Night
Although virtual happy hours lost their luster weeks ago, there are still plenty of ways to make them exciting. You don't just have to have a drink while looking at your friends' faces with the zoom.
Instead, consider hosting a game night. Jackbox Games offers a variety of party games that will make you and your friends laugh all night long, but you can also keep it simple and bring up old issues like two truths and a lie, or even the truth or courage.
Make a black deal
Another easy way to kick up your virtual birthday party? Add an elegant dress code. Wearing your best party outfit (and maybe even an actual pair of shoes, instead of the slippers you wear most days) will make a Zoom call an instant event.
Just make sure your virtual guests know what the costume will look like, they may need to prepare to swap out the leggings for pants or a dress.
Create an At-Home Bar Crawl
If you can socialize in small groups or live with roommates or family members, consider creating your own home bar.
Like a real bar stroll, you'll enjoy a different drink at each stop, but instead of traveling around town, you'll just have to travel from room to room. Find a theme (libations inspired by your favorite TV shows or movies, classic cocktails, drink recreations of your favorite places, or anything else that suits your interests) and assign each person a room where they will create a drink author's theme.
As the evening progresses, you can even vote for the best cocktail if you want to add a little competition to the mix. As always, drink responsibly and keep the number of "follow-up stops" to a reasonable amount.
Host Your Own Wine Tasting
Another idea that works virtually or with a small group is a wine tasting of your favorite varieties. Choose up to five of your favorite wines to share.
If you are traveling the virtual route, be sure to send the list to your guests at least a week in advance. You can then organize the tasting in the traditional way, discussing the tasting notes, aromas, and body of each wine, or go your own way and talk to your guests about what they like about each option and ask them to share their ideas.
Of course, if you want something a little more refined and professional, you can opt for a virtual wine tasting led by a specialist, such as the Priority Wine Pass.
Learn How to Make Your Favorite Recipe
This may not be the easiest time to dine at a fancy restaurant, but it's a great time to try it out in the kitchen.
If there's a dish you want to master, why not turn it into a fun birthday challenge? If you live with a partner, friends, or family, everyone can work together and go out at night, and if you live alone, you can view the activity as a birthday-inspired moment of self-improvement, or FaceTime with a friend so you can talk about the process.
If you're lacking in culinary skills (hello, guilty!), Make sure you have something else in your freezer or pantry as a backup food. But even if the recipe isn't perfect, there's a lot to be said for making an effort to try something new.
Or Splurge On a Fancy Meal
Of course, not wanting to cook for your birthday is 100% understandable. But that doesn't mean you should be without a special meal.
And as restaurants across the country are learning more and more about takeout and home delivery, great food is just a phone call away. Call your favorite place to order your favorite items or take the opportunity to finally try a restaurant that has been on your list for years.
Make a Meaningful Donation
Sure, gifts are great, but stepping back and paying on your birthday can be even more satisfying. Get ready for a great year by donating to a cause that interests you.
Few things are better than knowing that you have made a difference, especially when so many causes deserve our attention and support. Browsing the internet you will find many organizations that need your help, even if it is minimal.
