Make mum feel special by hosting a fabulous Mother’s Day celebration on Zoom

Despite the relaxation of the lockdown restrictions across the country, the likelihood of restaurants and cafes being open in full swing for Mother’s Day is slim to none. And although you can host a house of ten people, the risk of spreading any cold or flu germs to loved ones is still on the minds of many.

This is where zoom comes in. Whether you’re celebrating you mum, grandmother, or anyone else in the family, zoom is a great way to connect with the family online to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Since COVID-19, Zoom has received a lot of celebrity attention, being used across the globe by millions of people for meetings, birthday’s , gathering, cyber drinks with the besties and face to face catch up with loved ones who are in quarantine.

Here’s how Zoom can help you celebrate Mother’s Day with the family:

  • Zoom has a screen share option. This means you can share photos to everyone whilst you’r hosting your Mother;’s Day Zoom Party.
  • Pre-send cards and gifts to mum and tell her to wait until the Zoom party before opening. This way you can experience her joy as she opened each card and gift online with you all.
  • Organise everyone to order food to arrive at the same time, such as on Ubereats, so everyone can have a meal together. 
  • The background of each person’s screen can be changed virtually, so others can see an image behind them instead of their actual background. It could be changed to something that says, ‘Happy Mother’s Day’, a photo with mum or an exotic location.
  • Play a game together, such as trivia. Each person can organize a few questions about mum for a “Mother’s Day Trivia” game, and the others can all guess the answer. 
  • It can be nice to dress up to feel a bit more like it is really happening. Or a funny theme could even be organised among participants to surprise mum. 
  • Take a Zoom family photo. Say three, two, one, Zoom and smile as one person takes a screenshot or screen recording.
