Is Covid-19 getting in the way of a birthday celebration for someone you love? Birthday celebrations in 2020 might not be what you planned or what you're used to, but they can still be really special during the time of coronavirus — you just have to be a little creative! Here are five ideas on how to make this birthday great, even while practicing social distancing:
Birthday door surprise
Decorate the yard
Just because you're social distancing doesn't mean you can't decorate the yard! Deck out your yard with balloons and signs, or yard ornaments like pink flamingos. You can even post a sign telling passersby to honk for a birthday!
Host a video virtual birthday party
Have dessert delivered
A great way to support your local businesses in these difficult times is by ordering delivery! Choose a local bakery or a restaurant with stellar desserts and send something sweet to a friend's home to let them know you're thinking of them.
Hold a birthday parade!
