While socializing has been super difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is still possible to find ways to see the people we love. Keeping ourselves and our families safe throughout coronavirus has been the priority, but we all still crave that fun social aspect to our lives, don’t we?

If you have a celebration coming up, such as a birthday, anniversary or a professional milestone, you might be worrying about throwing a get-together that keeps everybody safe from coronavirus. If that sounds like you, don’t worry - your guide to throwing a socially distanced party is here!

Let’s get started, shall we?

  1. Host The Event Outdoors

Of course, it is much safer to hang out outdoors than inside your home during the pandemic. Fresh air allows any virus particles to dissipate into the air, not land on objects in your home and potentially spread to others. Additionally, it is easier to stand apart from each other at an appropriate distance if the event is held outdoors.

  1. Have The Event Catered

Certain aspects of parties are bound to increase the chance of spreading coronavirus. This includes preparing and sharing food in your home. This type of close contact could be potentially dangerous for your guests, and is best avoided.

Instead of catering the party yourself, invest in professional lunch catering that can help you to feed people in a sanitary, covid-safe way. All the catering staff will be trained in social distancing measures, and you can rely on the fact that the food will be prepared in a hygienic, professional-grade kitchen. Furthermore, you won’t be required to clean plates or cups that other people have used, reducing the risk of contracting the virus from anyone.

  1. Invite Only Your Core Circle

We all love big parties full of happy, dancing friends and family. But during the pandemic, throwing a large event would be very difficult to achieve while enforcing social distancing measures. For a COVID-safe party, make sure you only invite your core circle to the event. You could plan a larger event for next year, perhaps, that allows others to celebrate with you in a safe, responsible way.

  1. Find A Way To Make It Fun

Social distancing can suck sometimes. We want to hug our loved ones, kiss them on the cheek, and sit close as we catch up on all the things we missed. Nevertheless, contracting coronavirus just isn’t worth these sweet moments unfortunately. We have to wait a bit longer.

So when throwing a socially distanced event, try to find ways to make it fun. You could make themed masks that are relevant to the event, and give them out to people as party favors on arrival! You could ask guests to bring colored hair ties or rubber bands to put around their champagne glass, to make sure they don’t get mixed up. There are always fun ways to lighten the mood, even in a serious situation like the one we are in right now.

If you are throwing an event in the near future, use this guide to help you do so safely and with confidence!
