How to Organise a Virtual Birthday Party for your Travelling friends

It's that time of the year again, your best friend's birthday! But this year it's a little bit different. This is because your friend is an adventurous person and decided to travel around the world. Unfortunately, you don't have the means to go and visit him/her but you do want to throw a birthday party. That's why you should organise a virtual party for your travelling friend. Want to know how? Follow these steps. 

1. Which platform will work best for you

Which platform can be best used for your surprise party idea? Each platform has their pros and cons. You can choose between multiple platforms like Google Hangout, Zoom or Skype.

2. Make sure to invite lots of people

You're going to need some more people to pull this off. Ask family and friends who you think would want to attend and build your guestlist from there. From here you can decide if it is going to be a big virtual party with friends and family, or just a smaller party with friends.

3. Select a theme

Pick a theme that the birthday girl/boy will enjoy, after all it's their party.. Has he/she for instance been binge watching Grey's Anatomy lately? Then you can make everyone dress up as a doctor or nurse. But you can also just choose a colour scheme or something else! 

4. The proper party accessories

Send everyone who'll be attending the party an invitation by sending a party box. What you put in this party box is entirely up to you. Think about candy, confetti, balloons or other party decorations, which they can use as background decorations during the virtual party. Create a personal party box for the birthday girl/boy, with special cards from other friends, add some party decorations (Dutch: feestversiering) such as balloons (Dutch: balloons) and send it to their hotel. 

5. Slideshow of memories

Ask all the attendees if they can send pictures of the birthday boy/girl and make a powerpoint presentation/ slide show. Show the slide show during the whole virtual party. These can vary between childhood pictures to embarrassing drunk pictures. 

6. Personal Pubquiz

When it's someone's birthday, they're the man/woman of the hour. Everything is about them. Seeing all the people in the ZOOM or Skype meeting would probably be a surprise of itself. To even surprise the birthday boy or girl even more, create a pub quiz purely about them. Ask everyone to send in questions regarding the birthday girl/boy. These questions can be about everything, from childhood to holidays. 

With these tips, your friend will have the best virtual birthday party they could ever wish for!
