Do you know what a virtual baby shower is? It is when you celebrate the upcoming birth of your baby online rather than in person. Quarantine has taught us social distancing and how to make the best out of such situations in life. Be it a birthday party, Mother’s Day, Bridal Shower or a BABY SHOWER. Now you can do anything and everything at home.
In a unique way, without the fear of catching the virus.
Yes! Your guests should feel special and honored. Even if the party is planned online. You have to give them the feeling and sense of actually attending a get-together. E-invites are good idea of inviting your peeps over for a baby shower and show them how thoughtful you are.
Decide the Venue:
You are away from the hassle of booking a hall or a restaurant for your baby shower. Just choose the venue virtually and YAS! You are good to go. Check out the virtual venues available such as Zoom, Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts etc and choose the one most suitable for you and your guests.
Sending the Care Package:
Few days before the shower you can simply send a care package to your guests. The pack will have all the essential they will be needing for the party. If they are supposed to play a game, send them the things they will be needing for it. You can add a thank you note and gift for your guests as well. This will make your party more charming and full of life.
