5 tips for celebrating while staying safe

The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely changed our lives, and along with it, the way we celebrate important events like birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, holidays, and everything in between. If you’re the designated party planner of the family, you’ll definitely have to make a few adjustments in order to ensure that these special celebrations are safe, yet enjoyable even at a distance!

We rounded up some of our favorite tips, tricks, and recommendations for you to put together a quarantine bash to remember!

Choose a fun theme

It’s good to start off by deciding what the party’s motif is going to be. Will it be a costume party, a classy tita party, or a KBBQ party? That’s all up to you! We also recommend that you take the celebrant’s favorite things, like TV shows, movies, or K-Pop biases. Make sure to take everyone’s cravings into consideration too. Are the attendants itching to eat food from GCash QR partner merchants like K-PUB BBQ, Sunnies Cafe, or Coffee Project? List it down and order up later!

Get your gifts the contactless way

Most special occasions call for gift-giving, so why not pick up some of your presents at GCash partner merchants like Mr. DIY, Ace Hardware, True Value, Silverworks, and Daiso? Don’t forget to safely transact using GCash QR for good measure!

Set up with social distancing in mind

Once you’ve got a theme all figured out and you’ve got most of the party supplies ready, it’s time to set up space at home for the celebration! While it’s still not safe to have guests over, some members of your family (including yourself) may have spent some time outside the house during the day, so it’s still best to implement social distancing measures for the party.
