With large gatherings prohibited under coronavirus, people are finding new, remote ways to celebrate. Jane Birdwell, inventor of Tablevogue fitted table covers, is sharing her tips for making a virtual graduation special.
Birdwell, who is also the mother of a 2020 grad, says she knows how families feel about not being able to throw a big party.
“But just because you can’t get together in person doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your child’s years of hard work…” says Birdwell. “You can still have a fabulous virtual celebration for your grad-of-honor while practicing safe social distancing.”
Birdwell’s advice on making the most of your virtual graduation are simple and, best of all, safe.
1. Send an interactive virtual invite. Setting a color of theme can make the invitations fun and eye-catching, and give your guests something to look forward to!
2. Map out a virtual viewing space. Select the center of the party at home with intention. Maybe it’s a beautiful corner of your garden, or a cheerful, well-lit portion of the living room. Try to keep the space about 10 feet by 10 feet, so guests can clearly see you, your grad, and your decorations. Make sure to arrange some comfy seating!
3. Jazz things up with simple touches. Try having all your virtual guests dress with a theme, such as school colors. If guests are giving gifts, you can have them sent ahead-of-time so your grad can open them on-camera, making the moment special and organic for everyone. And don’t forget to get festive with your celebration space! Liven things up with some balloons, flowers, or a beautiful Tablevogue table covering.
