For all the fun and excitement of a birthday party, there is little to be excited over when it is finished and you are left with the cleanup. A new concept is set to relieve tired party-givers of the hassle of cleaning up. Have your birthday online!
The throw online party birthday concept can be as simple or complicated as you want. All that is required for a birthday online is for you and all your guests to have access to a computer with the Internet at a given time. Beyond that, the choice is yours.
First off, make a list of all the people you wish to invite to your birthday online. Because there will not be an actual physical location that will require cleaning you are not limited to how many guests you can invite. The throw online party method allows you to invite friends and loved ones from far distances that normally could not attend a regular party.
Next, you need to choose a location for your birthday online. A chat room is commonplace for the throw online party gathering. There is little need to pay for this service, as many sites offer a free chat room and require only a simple registration. To guard against party crashers, choose a chat room that enables privacy with invitation only entrants. This feature is offered by most chat room sites so it should not be a problem. If you happen to be savvy in web site design, you can build a page specifically for the birthday online and add your own chat room for added security and privacy.
Invitations to your birthday online are a snap. Hundreds of Internet locations offer free e-cards. These e-cards can be personalized and sent via e-mail to all of your party guests. Be sure to provide an e-mail address so your guests can RSVP and all pertinent information about the location of the birthday online.
To add that realistic feel to your birthday online, encourage guests to bring virtual gifts. Popular gifts include music downloads, digital photographs, and poems. To take this one-step further, guests can offer online gifts, like memberships to music sites, gift certificates to online retailers, or software upgrades.
Games can also be a part of your online birthday party. For something simple, try an online scavenger hunt. Similar to the physical game, an online scavenger hunt gives each player a list of questions. Each player must search the Internet to find answers to the questions. First player to answer all questions correctly wins. This can provide hours of entertainment for your party.
For something a little more complicated, try some of the online game communities. These communities offer a wide variety of games, such as card, casino, or puzzle and many feature chat rooms in each game room. Certain sites allow you to create private/invitation only games rooms, perfect for a party.
Personal web cams can add a touch of realism to your birthday online. Web cams are inexpensive and easy to use, though they do require software to use them.
A themed online birthday party can stir things up a bit. Choose a theme, such as a favorite movie or book and have each guest create a profile of themselves as their favorite character. Role playing games are popular among themed parties, which can consist of guests doing nothing more than acting out the theme.
Next time you feel overwhelmed by the thought of cleaning up after a party, look into an online party. You might just discover a completely new form of entertainment for you and your friends.
