Don’t let your kids suffer from yet another boring birthday. Follow this guide and plan a virtual birthday party with their friends.
A virtual birthday party is the perfect way to celebrate your child's big day without all of the fuss.
Children love celebrating their birthday, and you wouldn't want to deprive them. It's also a great idea if you're on a tight budget or don't have many friends and family members nearby.
Everyone loves a birthday party, whether it's the actual day of the celebration or a whole week before and after. So, they'd be sure to attend it since it also won't involve the hassle of traveling.
The good news is you won't have to go out and search for decorations, prep food, clean up the mess when it's over, but rather, you can sit back and enjoy the fun.
At our gift & specialty shop in Essex, The Eclectic Chic Boutique, we offer virtual craft parties and carry handmade artisan jewelry, hair accessories, gourmet food items, clothing, and bath and body items that you might need.
Here's a guide on hosting a memorable virtual birthday party:
Choose a Fun Theme
A fun theme serves as a great starting point for your planning.
It also gives a unique way to get your kid and the others excited about the event. You can plan your outfits, cake, décor, goody bags, and other items accordingly so that it emulates a wonderland of sorts.
Whether your theme pertains to a cartoon or movie character, make sure it's modern and relatable.
Start by sending out themed invitation cards. Since it's a virtual event, virtual cards will do and will also prove lighter on the pocket.
Mail the Goody Bags
This is where you'll need to plan ahead.
Fill the goody bags with some fun items like these hot chocolate bombs and keychains or bag charms and let the parents of kids hide them till the day of the virtual party.
We also have fun gift and card options for you to choose from.
Get The Décor Sorted
Even for a virtual birthday, don't compromise on the décor. It's one of the few things that will keep the ambiance alive and allow your child to feel the birthday vibes even by the end of the day.
Decorate the room for your child's party accordingly by hanging streamers and balloons, placing colorful cupcake stands with snacks on them. Place a pile of presents so that your child has a chance to open them later.
Ask attendees to mail the presents before the virtual party so that your child can open them and give their reactions live.
Make sure your décor is strategic so that when your child sits in front of the screen, it makes for a lovely backdrop.
Book a Craft Party Session
A birthday party is no fun without any activities.
Get the kids engaged in a virtual craft session with the talented artists from The Eclectic Chic Boutique.
Upon confirmation of the class, participants will receive a DIY craft kit containing all the necessary materials along with an instruction sheet. They'll also be informed of any tools they'll need beforehand.
On the day of the party, they can follow along with an interactive instructor and have a great time creating something unique such as cookies, candles, soaps, or tiaras.
