4 Tips for Having an Unforgettable Birthday

Whether your birthday is around the corner, or a few months away, chances are you’re planning how to make sure you have a fabulous birthday. Let’s be real for a minute: 2020 has been a really weird year. Most of us have spent months of the year social distancing, meaning that the year has had a lot less celebrations than normal. If that’s the case for you, then I’m sure you’re itching to find a special way to celebrate your big day. Here are my top 4 tips for having an unforgettable birthday this year:

1. Don’t Forget The Invites
Invitations set the tone for the birthday, they let people know what to expect and also serve as the perfect reminders to lock it in their calendars. Basic invite birthday invitations offer you the ability to have almost unlimited color choices, meaning that you can personalise every aspect of your birthday invite, ensuring that it’s so you. You’re going to want to pick out an invite that sets the mood for the celebrations. Be sure to include important information such as where the celebration will be, what people need to bring (if anything) and any other details such as Covid-19 safety precautions you might be taking into consideration.

2. Get a Polaroid Camera
For my wedding I chose to have a polaroid camera with a guestbook and I left a bunch of pens nearby. People took such fun photos, stuck them in and wrote a cute note. I plan to do this for every big celebration so that I have a special memento of the day. Yes, most of us have smartphones with excellent cameras on them, but how many hundreds- no thousands – of photos do you have sitting on there that you never look back at. Borrowing or buying a Polaroid and getting a bunch of film ensures that you’ll actually have physical photos to remember your special day.

3. Don’t Skimp On Snacks
One of my favorite parts of going to a birthday celebration is all the wonderful food. If you’re a bit apprehensive about organizing it all, why not enlist the help of friends and family? In place of a gift, you can always ask people to bring a plate of their speciality, that way you’ll have oodles of food without having to shell out for it. Ensuring there are enough snacks and drinks for everyone attending is a sure fire way to ensure a wonderful gathering.

4. Consider Some Games
If you have a few friends who don’t yet know each other, introducing some games in order to make mixing between different groups can go a long way. There are simple games you can have like corn hole, giant Jenga or even some card games. Having reasons for different people to get together and get to know each other will ensure that your party is fun and memorable for everyone.

I hope that your birthday celebrations are everything you hope for and I’m sure with these four things in mind they’ll be great.
