1.Get into the birthday spirit with cocktail making at home

Since all the bars, pubs and clubs are currently closed, your birthday drinks will have to be enjoyed without leaving the comfort of your own four walls. Why not learn from master mixologists and have a go at making your own cocktails at home instead?

We have live online classes and cocktail kits that can be sent to your door, packed with all the alcohol, ingredients and equipment you need to get mixing - you’ll even receive some professional shakers! Our talented teachers can show you some of the best cocktails to make at home that are super tasty and have a festive flair.

This is a really fun thing to do at home that’s sure to get you into the party spirit. You won’t be able to stop smiling, and it’s a great way to socialise with your family and friends while staying safe - it's also so much cheaper than the overpriced drinks at the bar, so kinder to your wallet! 

Toast to another amazing year with your DIY cocktail, take a sip and let the fun be-gin!

2. Pamper yourself with homemade soap

This is the perfect party idea for the people who want some ‘me-time’ on their birthday and enjoy a nice soak in the tub. Step up your bathing experience by using your own handcrafted natural soap!

We have all sorts of soap making classes you can do from the comfort of your own home, and it couldn’t be easier when you have an experienced teacher on hand to help you. They’ll go over all of the amazing benefits the different oils in your homemade soap have on your skin, so you can be sure your bath will leave you feeling clean and soft.

If you’re a bit of an eco-warrior, you’ll love our soap making kits full of natural, plant-based ingredients which have no chemical nasties. Add in a few drops of essential oils, and you’ve got some wonderful aromatherapy in there too!

Learning how to make soap is the perfect self-care hobby that not only fills your bathroom with sweet aromas but can help you relax and de-stress. You won’t be able to resist using your bars in a DIY spa day at home. If you need a break and are looking for things to do on your own for your birthday, this will tick all the boxes!

3. Building a terrarium will make your birthday unbe-leaf-able 

For all the plant lovers out there, this is the virtual party idea for you. Get all your besties together and make some cute glass terrariums to brighten up your space. They’re the best kind of DIY home decor as they're easy to look after and beautiful to look at.

Say aloe to your new favourite hobby! It’s a great way to be creative, and our online classes will give you some cute terrarium ideas for the best designs.

Our talented teachers will help you figure out the best ways to arrange your succulents, cacti and ferns, so you have a dynamic looking DIY terrarium. You’ll also have the opportunity to decorate it with cute figures and rocks so it can be truly personalised.

Even better, soil contains microbes that can boost your positivity by helping your brain produce serotonin, which is a known mood balancer - this makes building a terrarium a fun craft for adults who need to relax.

Nothing beats chocolate. It’s a sweet treat that everyone loves, but did you know you can make your own truffles, lollies or praline? Try one of our online classes and learn how to make chocolate that beats the store-bought varieties hands down!

A chocolate making class is a real crowd-pleaser, which makes it perfect if you want birthday experiences that you and all your loved ones will enjoy. You’ll all have the time of your lives learning how to make truffles personalised to your tastes. Who can resist a smile as you bite into tasty chocolate? Your day will be choc-full of fun!

It’s not hard to get super impressive results, especially when you have experienced teachers guiding you through the chocolate making process. Avoiding dairy? No problems! You can also learn how to make vegan truffles.

Your birthday is all about you, so you should do whatever makes you feel great. If art is what you love, then a paint and sip class is the best birthday party idea for you. All your best pals can join in with their own favourite drinks that pair nicely with paints and easels. 

You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make your own art. It’s a great way for beginners to learn to paint, as any paint and sip online class is a relaxed and calming atmosphere.
