Since the corona pandemic, celebrating a birthday is very different from what it was. Especially when there is a so-called lockdown. People are not able to go out for dinner with their family, invite all their friends to a party at home, or dance the night away in a club. Luckily there is the ability to throw a party digitally. There are lots of communication tools that make it possible to meet each other online, also for a little party. Is the birthday of someone special to you coming up? Then throw them a digital birthday party they won’t forget! In this article, you’ll find some tips.
Use a party app
You can throw your best friend a birthday party via ZOOM, Skype, or Google Hangouts, but these apps are more suitable for business meetings. In other words: they’re quite boring. If you want to use a fun app, for example with the ability to play games, then make sure to download the video-chatting app HouseParty. It’s in the name: HouseParty is a real party app. Conversations via Houseparty are fun and you can also play games with all invitees. You can play, for example, Pictionary, Chips and Guac, quizzes, etc. You can download the app for free!
Send a party package
If you really want your best friend to feel like it’s his or her birthday, then make sure to send him or her a party package. You can include, for example, festive decorations (Dutch: feestversiering) such as balloons (Dutch: ballonnen) and confetti. You can also think of sending some tasty snacks or yummy beers. Message all invitees that they should get some snacks and beverages as well, so you can toast together on the birthday boy or girl!
Even though it’s through a screen and not face-to-face, a speech often is everything. A birthday is a perfect day to put your best friend in the spotlight. Don’t forget to make it personal. Then it will probably be a speech he or she will never forget.
Hopefully, this article gives you inspiration on how to create the best digital birthday party for your loved ones. Have fun!
