A Virtual Holiday Season

The holidays may have a new look this year with a virtual twist, but you can still have a festive affair. We’ve gathered a few tips to stay connected with the ones you love most and add some cheer to your screen-to-screen celebrations.

One of the best ways to get into the spirit of the season is by going all out on your decorations—even if it’s just for yourself. Choose where you’ll be Zooming from and create the ultimate holiday backdrop that will put a smile on everyone’s faces. Regardless of how many people you have around the table, you can still set up a beautiful tablescape to make your heart happy when dinner comes around.

There are plenty of ways to make your virtual celebration special. Family traditions are what keep the holidays memorable, so don’t let distance stop you. If you’re ready to start dishing some secret family recipes, host a cook-along with the children and grandchildren so that everyone can enjoy a familiar flavor. Or maybe scheduling a virtual happy hour is more your speed for a quick hello, story sharing and a toast to all that you’re grateful for.

Want to add a little fun into the mix? There are plenty of games you can play screen to screen. Whether it’s online versions of Scrabble, Monopoly and Clue or built-in games on the HouseParty app, you’re bound to find something that everyone will enjoy. To make things even more interesting, why not add some prizes for the winners? Like a box of your famous cookies with a gift card on top!
