How do you celebrate a birthday Party Safely?
If you are practicing social distancing here are a few ideas for drive-by parties that say it BIG!
For most people a drive-by party is not how the planned celebrating their loved ones birthdays, but that doesn't mean you still can't have fun! For many people the idea of not having a birthday party is unimaginable.
If you aren't able to be physically close to your loved ones this year there are more than a few ideas for drive-by birthday party ideas that work just as well as a traditional party.
If you are wondering how to have a drive-by party here are a few fun ideas to get you started.
1. Bring on the Birthday Signs
Decorate your front yard and provide a great photo opportunity during your drive-by party for your guests. They will all want to snap pictures of your birthday boy/girl in front of their sign. It also ensures that no one will miss the right house!
What is great about yard signs is that they can be customized for your birthday boy/girl. Check and see if there is a signgypsies.com near you to book your yard sign rental.
2. Host a virtual party before the drive by party
Maybe you have family and friends out of town who won't be able to make it to the drive-by party. Invite them to a virtual party using Skype or Zoom.
It will make the birthday girl or boy feel really special to have a virtual party and a drive-by party in the same day!
3. Have a car decorating contest
Encourage your guests to decorate their cars for the drive-by party. You can even have prizes for the best decorated cars.
4. Have a table for gifts
Set up a table in your front yard so that guests can keep their distance but still drop off gifts for the birthday boy or girl. People love giving gifts and they will enjoy the opportunity to easily drop off their presents.
5. Have a "goodie bag" table
Just because it is a drive-by party doesn't mean you can't give out goodie bags. Consider giving out individual cupcakes instead of slices of cakes or candy bags so that you can still enjoy treats with your guests!
6. Don't forget the Thank You Cards
It is important to remember to thank your guests for coming to your party and for gifts. You can use one of your yard sign photos with the birthday boy or girl to use as your thank you card!
