Absolutely! The Coronavirus has made it difficult to engage with friends and family but it doesn’t have to stop people from celebrating with their loved ones! Social distancing may have affected our ability to throw classic parties but with a bit of creativity and ingenuity, you’ll be celebrating in style while staying a safe distance apart. This blog will go over some fun and pandemic-friendly ideas to cheer everyone up and break free from Coronavirus blues.
Drive-By Birthday Party
This is perfect for a birthday or other celebration where everyone can come together while still observing social distancing rules. Set up some decorations on your lawn and invite friends and family members to drive-by parade style in their cars to greet, congratulate and get pictures with the celebrated person. This is a great way to surprise someone and see heaps of friends and family on their special day.
At Home Cinema
Get a projector, some comfy seats, snacks and speakers for your very own outdoor cinema at home! This unique idea is a great way to have people gather outdoors and forget the worries of the coronavirus pandemic by enjoying classic films under the stars.
Social Distancing Picnic
Have everyone gather a picnic blanket and their own food and refreshments and tell them to meet you at your lawn or a local park for a social distancing picnic party. Enjoy each other’s company while soaking up the sun and staying safe.
While outdoor activities are safer and can include more people, having a few friends over could still prove to be a successful night with some social distance friendly games. For examples, games that don’t require physical contact or close proximity like charades or heads up are a great way to keep everyone entertained. You also have the option to watch movies or TV and play video games. Everyone can bring their own controller or controllers can be properly disinfected after using by following a few simple steps. If you’re especially nervous about indoor interaction, a DIY disinfection or one done by a professional cleaning company can help to put minds at ease.
Backyard camping is a great way to take a vacation without ever leaving home. Just set up some tents, a campfire and get some tasty treats to cook over the fire. Australia boasts some beautiful nature and night skies, so getting back to the feeling of being in nature is a sure-fire way to refresh after constantly staying inside. Bonus point if you combine this with the at home cinema!
