Every birthday is special. Now more than ever, having the chance to celebrate the little wins is an important part of growing up. Despite the restrictions, a party with just household members can be just as meaningful and fullfilling. If you’re considering additional guests, here’re 5 tips to stay safe.
Tip #1: Less is more
Whether the restrictions are for 2, 5 or 8 pax, don’t worry about filling up the numbers. Having more people doesn’t make it a better party! Our party hosts and clients have repeatedly mention that it is more enjoyable to have a session with much fewer. There are less to prepare too!
Tip #2: Close the Playroom
It’s easy to want to open up the play room to keep children occupied. If you’re engaging any talents or entertainer for your event, toys are only going to distract the little ones. Toys with their small parts are also difficult to clean, sanitize or disinfect. As much as possible minimize sharing of high-touch materials or otherwise, limit the number of shared toys.
Tip #3: Wash & Sanitize
This is especially important when preparing chips, fruits or other small bites at the party. Encourage the little ones to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If it is easier, kids and adults can also use hand sanatizers to rub their hands till dry.
Tip #4: Prepacked Meals
Consider individually packed meals to put your guests at ease, and save yourself the hassle. Given this period, opting to skip providing meals altogether is also understandable.
