Celebrating Pride Inside
Posted on June 22 2020
Pride’s different but no less proud this year!
With parades and parties for Pride 2020 cancelled due to coronavirus, and clubs and bars shut, lots of the LGBTQIA+ community and their loved ones are setting their hopes on celebrating once lockdown has been lifted entirely. But that’s not to say that there’ll be no festivities whatsoever this year. #PrideInside is a series of online events, including panel discussions, gigs and comedy shows. Many pubs and theatres are holding online events, quizzes and virtual parties, small groups of friends and families can do socially-distanced drinks, and households can hold at-home parties with no guests but maximum fun. Why not? If you’re planning on celebrating Pride 2020 at home, here are some Party Pieces pointers to making it as glam as one can…
1. Zoom party decorations
If you’re celebrating inside while stuck in front of your computer, you may as well decorate the wall behind you to show you’ve made some effort! We love foil fringe curtains for adding some cool to your call: choose gold or rose gold, and don’t forget to check the dimensions as you may need two or three to make sure your wallpaper doesn’t poke out at either side. We also can’t recommend decorations without suggesting some bright balloons. Choose a few rainbow foil hearts to be fully on-brand (helium is sold separately), or go hell-for-leather with this full-on rainbow balloon arch with its, count them, 85 glorious balloons!
2. Rainbow party tableware
Whether you’re planning a small picnic or household houseparty, if there’s food and drink involved, get in some rainbow-themed tableware to brighten up proceedings. We have three ranges: Sing A Rainbow, Birthday Brights Rainbow and Rainbow Stripe, and our absolute fave items from across these ranges include our Rainbow Fringe Party Cups which you cannot drink out of and be serious at the same time, and these Rainbow Stripe Party Hats which actually get funnier the more serious you try to look while wearing one. Our Bright Orange Wooden Party Cutlery which are both classy and reusable and these Rainbow Heart Large Plates which look even better than the food you plan to put on them. Last but not least is the colour-changing rainbow cake fountain which adds a wow-factor traditional candles do not.
3. Games for Pride 2020
To pep along your 346th video call with your friends, why not get some games in? Order Rainbow Pinatas or Flamingo Pinatas for you and your Zoom buddies, and compete to see who can thrash out the sweets the fastest. If you’re crafty and quiet, or want to play Zoom Pictionary, we sell Rainbow Pencils, and if you’re an active household with some outside space, how about a game of inflatable limbo?
Happy Pride Month to all of our customers. If you’re celebrating and using any of our products, don’t forget to tag us in on social media @partypieces so we can have a look!
