If your birthday or housewarming party plans have fallen through, there’s still hope! Invite your friends to celebrate virtually, using video conferencing apps to get the whole gang together. Sing “Happy Birthday,” open gifts, and eat a piece of birthday cake with all your loved ones — right from your own living room.
Make sure to decorate the space behind you — blow up balloons, hang streamers, and turn your lights to fun, bright colors or use the Hue colorloop formula. You can even sync your lights to music to put on a light show!
Bright idea: If you know someone with a birthday coming up, coordinate with mutual family or friends to throw them a surprise party. Have a cake delivered to their house, send your present by mail, and set a time for everyone to get together online. Once the attendees are all on video, give the birthday boy or girl a call and “surprise” them!
