We have a few tips and tricks to get you through your event if you do still decide to go ahead.

  1. Should you cancel? If your event does exceed 50 guests then yes you should think about postponing or cancelling your event at least for the next 8 weeks. Events of smaller size can still be carried out but party hosts should to adhere to guidelines.
  2. Home celebrations – are on the rise. While the general public is avoiding public places, people will now be opting for small events to be held at home. Birthdays and special occasions are still happening and need to be celebrated!
  3. Set up your own hygiene station as guests arrived. You can make this look cute and welcoming as your friends and family enter your home. This could be hand sanitiser or tissues if guests need to use them.

  10. Don’t panic! Enjoy the moment. It’s so easy to get swooped up in the hype and running scared but the fact is don’t make the celebration about talking about the Coronavisus, just relax and enjoy the celebration for what it is.
