Celebrate the Holidays Together: 3 Virtual Party Ideas


We all know the drill by now-- this year is a little different than holidays in the past. Even though we might not be throwing big holiday bashes, that doesn’t mean we have to skip out on the fun altogether. Make it a holiday to remember. Invite your friends and loved ones to get social and celebrate safely. Check out a few of our favorite virtual party ideas for inspiration.

How Do You Throw a Virtual Trivia Night?

A holiday-themed trivia night is a great way to get everyone involved in your virtual party. As the host, you’ll be in charge of the different topics and questions. We suggest creating a powerpoint presentation with a different question on each slide and sharing this screen with all of your virtual party attendees. A few different category ideas might be: holiday movie quotes, historic holiday events, and international holiday traditions. Winner gets a dozen doughnuts from Cardigan Donuts shipped to them!

What’s the Best Mocktails for a Zoom Mixology Party?

What makes an online get together even better? Mocktails, of course! Send out a list of three recipes to your guests ahead of time. Let them know they can choose their favorite one (or all three!) and have them set up their ingredients before the party. Enjoy creating your tasty masterpieces together! A few of our favorite mocktails are a Mango Mule, Sparkling Ginger Cranberry, and Hot Buttered “Rum.” Fresh Thyme Market is just down the road from us and has all the ingredients you need for these!

How to Host an Online Costume Contest Party?

An online costume contest is the perfect way to showcase your friend’s and loved one’s creative side! Give your guests a couple of costume categories beforehand and have each guest showcase their creations with a little red carpet moment. Ship the winner of each category a small gift from Corazon, or your favorite little shop that features creations from Minneapolis-based artists and designers.

Happy Holidays!

Have a blast hosting your virtual holiday party this season, whether it’s any of these great suggestions from UNCOMMON Dinkytown or one of your own creative ideas!
