If there’s one thing we’ve been reminded of over the course of this pandemic, it’s that we absolutely love to celebrate birthdays! And who wouldn’t? But how do you do a quarantine birthday party? Everyone has a birthday, and no matter what the age, it’s always special to be surrounded by the people you love to celebrate another year around the sun!
But, as stay-at-home orders continue to be extended across the nation, and social distancing continues to be the new normal, more and more people are turning to creative birthday party alternatives, and we are totally here for it!
After all, with everything that’s going on in the world right now, we could all use a little celebration in our lives.
Here are 10 quarantine birthday party ideas for when you can’t leave your house.
1. Send Cards
Everyone loves getting snail mail! Coordinate ahead of time and have people flood the birthday girl or boy’s mailbox with cards to celebrate the special day!
I’ve seen this happening a TON on Facebook, with people across the country calling on their virtual friends to send birthday cards in the mail, and the results are incredible! How special it must feel to receive so many cards to celebrate YOU on your birthday! It’s *almost* like being surrounded by friends. Almost.
2. Host a Virtual Birthday Party on Zoom
It’s hard to remember a world without Zoom. That’s because it’s an excellent platform for connecting large groups of people, virtually!
Send an invite to celebrate the birthday boy or girl via Zoom, and it’s as close to getting everyone together in the same room as we’re going to get these days! Better yet, coordinate a group performance of everyone singing “Happy Birthday” at the same time.
3. Organize a Drive-by
These have to be some of my favorite quarantine birthday parties taking over my social feeds. Who wouldn’t want their own personal parade from the people they love most? Especially during a time when seeing people outside of the grocery store is a foreign feeling.
Have party “guests” decorate their cars with signs and balloons and give them a 30-minute time frame of when to show up. Then, turn up the music, and celebrate in person from the safety of your vehicles.

Did you know that SkyZone Trampoline Park is offering a free virtual birthday party experience for kids who are celebrating during quarantine? The whole thing takes just 15 to 20 minutes, and you can invite up to 10 people. Then a Sky Zone team member will guide guests through games and activities before leading everyone in a virtual rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
Sky Zone handles setting up the Zoom call and sending out invites. Is there really anything better?
