How To Prepare A Virtual Party | Virtual Birthday Party

Updated: Aug 10, 2023

Have you decided to go ahead and throw an online party for your children's birthday? Fantastic! At Non-Stop Kids we have performed thousands of virtual parties for children's parties all across the country. We've loved performing them and want all parents to know they are amazing!

Planning for a Virtual Party | Crafting an Online Birthday Celebration

Garden parties will be making their return very soon. But until then we will still be providing virtual parties and offering great advice. In today's blog we will talk you through everything you need to know about preparing a virtual birthday party.

Decide On Your Platform!

A virtual birthday party is much more than an average call through Facebook or FaceTime. Without the right platform then there is no party. Decide on the type of platform you would like to use that is easy to use and all of your guests will understand how to use it as well. Once you decide on an application, get in touch with everyone on your guest list to download said app. Maybe even do a test call just to make sure everyone has an idea on how it will work. There's hundreds of applications out there that are easy to use without being tech savvy.

Zoom is a great choice for your party. You can have up to 100 guests attending virtually. The free version allows you to run up to 40 minutes, so it would be ideal to get the full version for all its amazing features. Skype is another great alternative that allows you to have up to 50 people. It works perfectly for all devices and can run as long as you like. For more information, we have a vlog that talks about what you can use to host a virtual party. Do your research and find the sharing platform that is right for you and your guests.

Prepare Your Guest List!

No party is without guests! As you would with a normal party, consider who you want to invite for your children's party. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology we can now meet up with tons of friends & family alone. Video sharing platforms such as Zoom allow you to have up to 100 people. Even better, you can also invite relatives who live in another country. As long as everyone has a computing device and internet connection, everyone can join in the fun and festivities. Work out a suitable time for your guests to join and let them know how to join the party.

Choose A Birthday Theme!

For your children's birthday party, go ahead and pick an amazing birthday theme! Your children's birthday party might be virtual, but that doesn't mean you can't have a fun theme. For a lot of kids out there the theme of the party is their most favourite part! There are so many great birthday party themes out there for your party. You can base a theme around something your child loves and then get the guests to help bring that theme to life. For example, if your child is really into superheroes, make the theme centred around that. All the guests attending can even dress up as a different superhero character and help bring the theme to life. There's tons of themes out there that are perfect to give your virtual party that extra special feeling.

Virtual Invitations!

Every party needs invitations for your guests. Instead of simply texting all of your guests the date and time, why not make it more fun with some virtual birthday party invitations? At Non-Stop Kids Entertainment, we teamed up with Mini Epic to bring you awesome virtual e-invites to send out to your friends for our Deluxe Package. These virtual invitations have amazing unique animations to send to your friends & family that can even be tailored to a specific theme as well. You can check out these amazing virtual invitations below.
