The world has seen an unprecedented change in the way we do things since the coronavirus saga started early this year. Officially declared by the World Health Organisation as a global health pandemic in March, all of us have started adapting to this so-called new normal, wherein life continues but with restricted movements. This resulted in the postponement and cancellation of events and gatherings, notwithstanding their scale and significance. People cannot just simply go out, and even if they already can, going out to party is still not yet permitted.
The good thing about this restriction that all of us must adhere to is it unleashes our creativity how to have fun amid many constraints and limitations. Since it is still risky to freely go out and meet up with our friends at our favourite bar, we can do our party online for the time being.
Yes, the virtual party is now becoming a new way to party in the age of coronavirus. We just need to set a meeting with our friends online and we can hold a virtual party the way we want it to be.
However, there are ways on how to take your virtual party to the next level of fun. All we need is to activate our crazy imagination and establish the ways how to transform our ideas into virtual reality.
These are some of the ideas that may be helpful to organise your first virtual party. Don’t feel anxious or pessimistic because is almost everybody’s first time planning a virtual party.
(1) Choose an easy virtual platform for your virtual party
There are several virtual platforms that are available in the online market today, mostly free of charge. If you think that Zoom is the most popular platform among your friends and colleagues, so use Zoom then. It is important that everybody is comfortable with the platform to be used to avoid unnecessary hiccups. It is still best that everybody joining the party is familiar with the basic functions of the platform. You can really save a lot of time if everybody can join independently and stay in the meeting without assistance.
(2) Think of a unique themed virtual party
Like typical physical parties, having a theme or a concept can be used to elevate the event experience of all involved. For example, you can hold a neon party wherein you can wear neon party accessories while at home. Crazy Hat theme or Masquerade is also another good idea since the focus of your party outfit is around the head area. You can be outlandish or minimalist if you want.
(3) Integrate food into the experience
What is a party without food, right? Since you cannot hold your party in a hotel ballroom or restaurant, you can still eat together by ordering food delivery. You can pre-order from your favourite caterer and have the food delivered to every party guest an hour before the event starts. Alternatively, the easiest option is to give your guests food vouchers, so they can decide on what to eat.
(4) Create a rundown akin to a physical party
To avoid confusion and complexities, use physical party ideas for your virtual party. You can still ask your superior to welcome the guests, you can invite your favourite live band to play and ask your virtual emcee to play virtual games with all the guests. Remember, all of you are in the same virtual meeting room, so interaction and engagement are still very possible. You can even propose a virtual toast and celebrate your resilience as a group or a company in this midst of this challenging time of the year.
(5) Hire an event company
You also need to enjoy the party, and you cannot do that if you are working the entire duration of the party. Event companies, no matter how event landscape has changed, are still the experts in doing events, be it in-person or online. Hire an event company that has a clear understanding and experience in pulling off a successful virtual event. Leverage on their creative ideas, impressive coordination with all vendors and stakeholders, and their full understanding of your objectives.
