Due to COVID-19, you can currently only have parties of six people. So, how do you throw a micro-birthday party?

Here is our quick and easy guide to hosting a small party:

Guest List

For your guest list, you will need to only invite your closest friends. Choosing which friends to invite can be really difficult, but hopefully any friends that you aren't able to invite will be understanding of your situation.

Make sure that you also include the people from your household in the final guest count. Due to the current restrictions, if you have a family of four at home, you will only be able to invite two guests, whereas if you live alone, you can invite five.

Invitations

As for invitations, you may find it's easier just to text everybody the details. After all, there will only be a few people coming over.

However, if you do decide to do traditional invitations, there are so many styles to choose from!

Decorate your house with balloons and banners to get that traditional party feel.

Food

As there will only be a few guests, you don't need much food. We recommend to serve sandwiches, crisps, and drinks, as well as a slice of birthday cake!

Activities

Now you need to think of activities that you can do in small groups.

For adults, we think you can't go wrong with either a cocktail party or a tea party. They're easy parties to throw, and perfect for a small amount of guests.

As for the kids, a creative party will be so much fun. Opt for either a baking party or an arts and crafts session where kids can really get stuck in. A pamper party or picnic is so much fun, too!
