Set the scene

Even if it is just Mum, Dad and child (If there are other siblings and pets, don’t forget to invite them!) You can still have a memorable party from home! Decorating is half the fun and choosing sustainable options is also beneficial to our environment. We have your decorations sorted with our Timber Happy Birthday sign which is not only handmade and Aussie -made but can also be reused for each birthday! We also have fabric buntings that double up as room decor here. You can pick flowers from the garden, use some of their favourite toys as party props and make it FUN!

Birthday food

Making your child’s favourite foods is a great way to make them feel extra special when you throw an isolation birthday! You can still have various party type foods but you could do something a little different like make them breakfast in bed with all the trimmings, or their favourite lunch and dinner and make it all about them!
You might even take the opportunity to get them involved in the cooking and baking! For some amazing recipes to try, head over to our friend Andrea’s page The cooking collective here

Online Parties

So you want to give them something extra special and all-inclusive how about throwing a virtual party?! Sounds so futuristic and we are loving the ideas that these companies have to offer!

Alternatively, you could have an online cooking party run by foost, The kids can make a cupcake or pizza and all sing happy birthday virtually here

“With my child’s birthday party coming up soon, I realised there was no way to celebrate with friends in-person, but why not virtually? Each child will cook either a mug cake OR a pizza from their own home (ingredients list supplied). Children will also make a joint digital birthday card, sing happy birthday and play interactive games”-

Then there’s also Fairy Simone who started who runs online interactive sessions and lessons in making playdough, dancing and playing games! !

“I started Birthday Fairy to create joy and spread happiness. To be able to continue to support children and parents during these uncertain times, we moved to an online platform to run interactive one-on-one and group sessions. We are privileged to have technology to be able to provide the interaction which children thrive upon and reduce the stress for parents. We are running free sessions each week and also have tailored sessions which can be booked for your child and their friends. Our online parties have also been very popular as children are able to connect with their friends virtually and still dance, play games and feel special.”



Birthday Gifts

If you throw an isolation birthday party with some of our suggestions, that IS a gift in itself! But there are lots of online gift options such as wooden toys, crown & wand sets, milestone cards and more here. If you want something for them to unwrap we also have reusable giftwrap options which are a gift on their own! View our selection here:

So as you can see there are a number of ways to throw an isolation birthday for your child/children and still have an extra special day!
