The current situation of being in isolation in the world should not worry you if your birthday or that of a loved one is here or around the corner. You don’t have to be stressed that you won’t be in a position to have a good time on your big day due to the novel Coronavirus. Surprisingly, a birthday in isolation might be the best yet. In the wake of social distancing and quarantining, you may wonder how you can really enjoy your birthday. I’ve put together several ideas to help you celebrate your birthday in style while in isolation.
Organize for video conferencing
Since social gatherings are forbidden in current times, you can enjoy your birthday virtually. This is by simply planning a video conference in one of the platforms like Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Skype. Ensure you include your close friends and family in the video. They can then sing the birthday girl or boy a birthday song. In addition to singing, they can send them sweet birthday messages. Nothing beats the feeling brought by this. It’s a great way to also connect and wish the special person a great life ahead.
Sending gifts over the internet
A birthday is not complete without gifts and presents. You can plan to surprise the special person by ordering gifts which will be delivered to their address. Get them what they love most and send it over to them. This means a lot to them and shows them that they are special despite the difficult times we are living in. You can also send the gift on time so that it gets to them on the actual day of the birthday. Attaching a letter with a lovely message and best wishes will go a long way in making them feel loved and appreciated. COVID-19 doesn’t have to prevent you from having a great birthday!
Decorating the house with balloons and sweet messages
If you live with the birthday girl or guy, consider decorating the house with balloons and ribbons. You can as well script sweet birthday messages on papers then hang them on the wall. This puts you in party mood despite the fact that you are in isolation. You can also place flowers on the table to fill the air with sweet scent. To add spice to life, try making the décor stay on a few days after the birthday. Additionally, you can write the name of the special person on small papers and put them carefully on the table. Having a birthday in isolation doesn’t have to be boring with all the home décor we have in mind.
Have some fun with the special person
Try to keep the special person entertained during their birthday. What is that they like doing? Is it sports? Swimming? Baking? Gardening? Or watching movies? Engage them in their hobby so that they don’t feel bored. While quarantining, there’s a lot of uncertainty hovering around. You can keep this away by doing those hobbies together so as to celebrate their birthday. Keeping them company doing what they love most proves that this is not just a normal day but a great day to celebrate life. The best thing is that this idea is also keeping you safe since you are staying home thus keeping safe.
Have a dinner as a family and sing a happy birthday song
The current times call for families to reunite and connect with much isolation time left in their hands. Organizing dinner for the whole family would be an awesome idea for the birthday. You can prepare the special person’s favorite meal then gather as a family for the dinner. Surprise the birthday boy or girl by singing a birthday song in unison in the middle of the dinner. This might even bring tears of joy since they will very awed. Several of you can hand them birthday presents then. They will enjoy the birthday and might even the best birthday yet.
