It’s become a clear realization for many women that celebrating a milestone birthday in 2020 will be difficult. No big parties, no big travel plans, no bars or wineries. Yes, COVID has been a buzzkill for many celebrations, especially in South Louisiana where we love to celebrate all the things.
You can focus on the disappointments that are out of your control or you can focus on actions you can take to make the most out of it. If you’re at a loss but still want to celebrate in a memorable way, we put together a few ideas that will make you feel like the queen you are.
Gift Yourself a Fabulous Birthday Cake
If you’ve been baking up a storm during quarantine, why not bake yourself a cake? If you’re not into baking, purchase one from your favorite local bakery. You support a local business and you get to enjoy all that yumminess.
Host a Virtual Party
Get together with family and friends via Zoom for a birthday party. Plus sides are that you still get to spend time with loved ones AND if Uncle Joe gets inappropriate, you can just mute him!
Book a Boudoir Photo Shoot
Spend the day getting done up, sip on champagne and hire a professional photographer to capture amazing images of your hot-ass self. At A. Dannette Boudoir, many of our clients book a boudoir session to celebrate a milestone birthday. You get an instant confidence boost plus you have amazing images to look back on forever.
Added Tip: Consider bringing birthday balloons, fresh flowers, a tiara and champagne to add an extra layer of celebratory vibes to your boudoir images. If you're interested in booking a boudoir photo shoot to celebrate your birthday, check out our options here to get started.
Sign Up for a Wine Club
Subscription boxes are all the rage and wine and spirits are no exception. I love to buy a fancy bottle of birthday wine to share with my partner but going into a crowded store is not on my wishlist. Send yourself your favorite bottle from a safe distance.
Figure out what’s most important to you. Is it celebrating with loved ones or eating delicious cake? Is it self-care time or a moment to reflect on the past year and what you want to accomplish in the coming year? Whatever it is, give yourself room to choose whatever feels best for you.
