Some of the amazing Christmas celebration ideas during COVID
Adhering to COVID guidelines does not mean you will have a boring party. Below are some out of the box ideas for a perfect Christmas celebration. You can take some of these ideas or modify them to make them more attractive.
Alluring Cake– How can a Christmas party at the office kick start without a delicious cake on the center table? Although you can go for regular cakes or designer cakes plum cakes need a special mention at any Christmas party.
Decoration plans– Unlike any other party, decoration includes both decorating the venue and the Christmas tree. You can hang some gift boxes or colorful chocolates from the sides of the tree. And if you want to be innovative enough, why not hang a few masks and gloves to raise awareness among people regarding COVID 19. Now, coming to the venue decoration. Make sure the place is adequately lit and put up colorful balloons and streamers. At some corners, you can put up posters regarding COVID appropriate behavior.
Eatables– At the party, try to keep most of the people occupied with packaged food items. They are coming from the house of manufacturers and undergo proper treatment before being packed. So, to ensure minimal contact or any chances of COVID transmission you can choose different types of cookies, chocolates, chips, and so on.
Games– Arrange a few solo games that you think people present at the party will like. Try to avoid couple or group games, as they may be the route of COVID transmission. Few examples of solo games that can be performed during Christmas parties are, ‘Fixed time sketch’, ‘Memorise’, ‘Antakshari’ and so on.
Live performances– A party looks gloomy without the beats of music or the steps of the dance. So, you can call over some professional singer or dancer and enjoy some live performance at the party. Also, if you want to cut down expenses, then why not encourage the guests to show the inner talent in front of everyone present at the party. Sounds cool, right?
Now, you must have tons of ideas building in mind in addition to the ones we have mentioned here. Choose among the wide range of Christmas cake designs and simply place the ‘Order’ option; you are all set to rock the party with magical cream. Be it office or home, spice up the party with positive charms. Make sure you enjoy the party while you are on the safe side in terms of COVID.
