BEACON FALLS, Conn. (WTNH) — Families are thinking outside the box to help celebrate birthdays while we practice social distancing.
Brother and sister Dylan and Cameron happen to share a birthday and turned 7 and 5 respectively last week.
Their mom, Jen, said this year’s birthday was a bit different for her kids due to the social distancing guidelines in place and with both parents being essential workers.
So, to celebrate their social-distancing birthdays in style, Dylan and Cameron donned formal attire and took to the woods nearby, where a path of posters and signs awaited.
Jen said that friends and family sent over 70 posters containing family photos, drawings, and birthday messages for the siblings to enjoy.
Red carpets were rolled out along the path for the kids to walk on. At the end of the path, they found a giant inflatable birthday cake.
They also celebrated with their own six-layer birthday cakes and a glamorous photoshoot in front of a limousine backdrop.
Jen said, “It was a grand event that neither are sure to forget for a long time!”
