Here’s your chance to get expert ideas from DJ Zeke on how you should celebrate your next virtual birthday party.

Where do I start? All I know is that I want to have fun, but that’s it.

DJ ZEKE: Start by making a list of activities you enjoy. Make the list without canceling out activities that you think cannot be translated into a virtual event. You’d be surprised how creative you can get. 

How long should my guest list be?

DJ ZEKE: Having a virtual birthday party gives you the flexibility of inviting people nearby and across the world. However, you want to make sure that you don’t invite so many people that it becomes difficult for you to engage with everyone. You can also include a DJ and an emcee to make sure that everyone remains engaged abs that everything flies smoothly.  

A DJ? An emcee? How does THAT work virtually?

DJ ZEKE: You’d be surprised! Find a DJ/emcee who specializes in virtual birthday parties. After having a consultation about the vision for your virtual event, all you have to do is show up and have your guests log on. The DJ will handle all of the technical, behind-the-scenes things. You and your virtual guests just have to log in and have fun!

What are the key elements of a great virtual birthday party?

DJ ZEKE: Themes go over very well with virtual crowds. To decide on a theme, consider things that you and your guests would be excited about. Virtual Game Nights even did a Disney-themed game night that would be dope for a virtual birthday party.

You seem to know a lot about virtual birthday parties. Can you plan mine?

DJ ZEKE: LOL! I can’t plan it for you, but I can definitely help you take some of the guesswork out of it. Just hit me up!
