Many people are feeling impacted by the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, but that doesn’t mean those spring birthdays and other events can’t still be celebrated! Celebrations right now might look a little different than they usually do. However, throwing a party for your kids or loved ones is still a possibility! Read on for fun online party ideas while you are social distancing.
Parties To Go Can Help You Celebrate!
During this time, Parties to Go is open, but no one can come into the store. We will shop for you and bring it out to you and everything will be completely sanitized! Just call us and we will help you create the perfect celebration. You can place orders over the phone and we will bring it out to your car when you arrive for easy, contactless pickup.
Family Photoshoots with a Photo Backdrop Wall
The first of our online party ideas is a photo backdrop wall! If you can’t leave the house as a family, try setting up a fun photo backdrop wall. These are extremely popular all over Pinterest. Check out this board for ideas!
Take advantage of our full selection of fringe curtains, photo props, wacky sunglasses, and other fun photo supplies! This will allow for a fun bonding experience for the whole family. Plus, the photos will be a great memory to look back on!
Make Goodie Bags & Door Drop
One of our favorite things about parties is the goodie bags! Although we can’t gather for parties right now, a wonderful way to still make birthdays (or any celebration!) special is to put together goodie bags for all of your friends (or kid’s friends) and deliver them on their doorsteps.
For kids, we have a great selection of noisemakers, party favors, bead necklaces, and more! Just give us a call for our current selection. For extra fun, have your kids join a Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype party to share their goodies with each other. This gives them a chance to see each other and play, while still maintaining distance!
For adult friends, mini bottles of champagne treats, and other little gifts are a perfect option. We have many party favors that cater to adults as well. Call us today to find out what we have in stock!
Don’t Forget Dessert
Consider bringing a delicious birthday dessert to drop off with your goodie bags! Baking a wonderful dessert can help them feel a part of celebration during these difficult times.
