This No-Fail Guide Will Help You Plan a SOLID Virtual Birthday Party
Do not sleep on virtual birthday parties. I know nothing can ever compare to actually clinking champagne glasses together in person, but, yes, it's possible to throw a popping party online. Ya just gotta use your imagination and get a lil creative.
It also helps to plan things in advance, but I'm guessing that's why you're here, you overachiever. The most successful virtual party planners make sure everything is in place before the actual event. Taking the time to personalize Zoom backgrounds and double check that cake delivery will help you win the Party Coordinator of the Year Award (IDK if that exists...but it should!). That's just the beginning of all of the fun things you can do.
Ahead, you'll find 10 virtual birthday party ideas for a seriously good turn up.

6) Video Greeting Card
Don't even try singing happy birthday over Zoom. It's a technical disaster waiting to happen. Instead, everyone can record short messages and you can put them all together with help from this (not at all $$$) video editing service. It'll be cute (and maybe slightly embarrassing) to add some baby pics too.
