When it comes coming up with some virtual party ideas, it’s important to think about what kinds of parties you’d like to go to online. Online parties are obviously different from “real life” parties because you can’t be with anyone. Think about what kinds of parties would be FUN for you to attend and you would be excited to be part of, too.


I wanted to come up with a full list of Virtual Party Ideas because I’m seeing so many people online come up with some super creative parties. I’m always amazed at what people will think of doing when the chips are down and they really need to do something. Online parties are just the easiest way to go for the moment!

Virtual Party Ideas: Pick a theme.

This is the best part of planning your virtual party. Make sure you find a theme that you are excited about hosting. I know that there are certain themes that would totally get me excited about hopping online. I feel like this is going to be personal and different for everyone. Make sure you take the time to really decide what kind of party you want to throw online!

1. Virtual Tea Party: This is such a cute online party idea for any age! All you need to do is have a cup or pot of tea with you and some cookies. You can invite a bunch of people to this “intimate” little tea party and really have a ball. I know that whenever I’ve gone to a tea party, I dress up. Make sure you play the part and dress up elegant and beautiful for it.

2. Virtual Dance Party: Get the music and TURN IT UP! Maybe it’s a country dance party or a hip hop party or an 80’s party. Whatever music you love, grab some friends and dance together.

This is one of my fave virtual party ideas, too! I’m an 80’s girl. The best part is that you can change it up and have everyone pick a song for the dance party. This is a fun way to bring people together!
