Do you know that song “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party”? Well, nobody cares indeed. Some of us might be lucky enough to have great friends who will do their best to cheer us up on our birthdays, but eventually, they will also get tired if we don’t show a little enthusiasm. So, if your birthday is coming up but you don’t feel festive, keep reading this article cause it might change your mind.
Quarantine birthdays can be stressful and discouraging. I know this well because my birthday is just in a few days and I didn’t feel festive until I decided to make the best out of it no matter what. I did a quick google search to come up with ideas then added a flavor of individuality, creativity, glitter, and here are the tips I have received as a final product:
- Decorate your house
Since you can not spend money anywhere else, you can invest it in decorating your house. Filling a house with balloons, LED lights, party lighting, or Disco lights together with festive tunes will definitely give you Birthday vibes and put you in a joyful mood.
- Put on a Special Outfit
The visual aspect of your birthday is more important this year than ever before. Taking care of interior design is an important step for making your birthday special, but this is only the beginning. Your outfit is also one of the crucial elements for expressing the festive nature of the day. Themed birthday parties are one of the great ways of doing that. You and your friends can dress as movie characters’ such as Marvel or DC superheroes.
- Treat Yourself
Are you tired of quarantine food? Having the same frozen food every day? It’s your birthday in the middle of the global pandemic, so there definitely is no time for frugality now. You have deserved a treat for making it through 2020, so order dinner from the finest restaurant or the local cafe you are a big fan of and enjoy delightful tastes together with the finest wine or non-alcoholic drinks if you are under 21.
- Play Virtual games With your friends
In order to make this day more jubilant, you can come up with a game to play with your friends online. It can be a drinking game such as a “Bus Driver” or a quiz to find out which friend knows you best. Games, even virtual ones, can be a great way to connect with your friends and have fun at the same time. If you are not into games you can organize a movie night with your friends. Netflix Party is a great way to bring cinema into your house and watch your favorite movie with your friends online, no matter how big the distance is between you.
- Hold a Virtual Party On Social Media
With the start of pandemics, it became a norm to hold virtual conferences, classes, and parties. If you are someone who enjoys massive parties rather than private gatherings with only a handful of friends, then you can organize a virtual party with the help of social media. On top of this, you don’t need to worry about the number of guests and invitees because there are multiple websites that will help you get social media followers. Whether you opt for a Facebook party or Instagram live, it will turn your birthday into a public event and bring unforgettable memories.
- After Party
The memories from your birthday are always precious no matter how and where you celebrate it. Hence, it is important to take care of collecting screenshots from your virtual party and pictures of yourself preparing for the birthday. The next day of your birthday can be a chill day and you can take a walk in the city with your friends or organize a picnic.
