Party for one: Mum's brilliant isolation party idea sees her inundated with requests

Party planning mums are having to re-think their kid’s birthday parties thanks to isolation regulations.

But mum-of-two Kylie Najjar wasn’t going to let a little social distancing get in her way.

Although she had to cancel her son’s first birthday party, she decided to roll with the quarantine theme and the results are absolutely adorable.

"I had planned a big party at home for my son and my other son that turns 4 next week," Kylie tells LifeStyle. "My soon-to-be 4-year-old was pretty upset we had to cancel the party with his friends."

While cancelling the party was disappointing, her new party theme was an absolute hit on the popular Facebook page Party Mums.

Kylie created a custom sign that said “Quarantine first birthday, none of you are invited!” and used work zone tape from Bunnings to create her son his own little quarantine zone.

“My son's first birthday today & obviously had to cancel his actual we ended up here,” she wrote.

In just three days her post has received more than 9.4K likes with many congratulating her on her creative work and great sense of humour.

"I thought my idea was a good one and thought I'd share the idea in the Party Mums group. But I honestly didn't think the whole world would love it and find it as funny as I did," she said.

Her posts was so popular that other mums were soon requesting her to share the sign she had designed to celebrate their own iso-birthday parties.

“Hey guys! I have had 100's of msgs asking for the file. I'm trying my best to get through them as fast as I can,” she said in her post.

"I am by no means a graphic designer or a professional haha I just made it on the handy old Microsoft Power Point," Kylie later told LifeStyle.

She went on to edit her post further saying she couldn’t keep up with all of the requests.

“I have tried my best to keep up, but my phone has been going off non-stop for 24hrs now & I just can't keep up. I'll post some pre-made ones in the comments for people to save, but no more custom ones sorry,” she posted. “Enjoy. Be safe. And be kind to one another.”

This little party for one is the perfect reminder that you don't need a big crowd to create a big celebration!
