4 zoom party ideas for adults

Lately, hanging out with friends and family around the Australia is looking a little bit different than it used to. Zoom gatherings and Google Meets are the new social hangouts, and instead of having a chef or bartender whip you up some tasty treats, the shakers and spatulas are in your hands. So what are some ways to make your next Zoom call more fun?

Here are 4 ideas to make your next Zoom gathering a great time.

Zoom movie night

With Teleparty (AKA Netflix Party) you can sync up your streaming services and watch movies and TV shows with the fam! It’s free, and it also adds a group chat to your screen. 

Don’t forget to prep lots of movie snacks and drinks, like Garlic and Herb Monkey Bread with Hot Cheesy Dip, or Chocolate Crackle Popcorn for the sweet tooths.

Zoom cocktail night

Learn to mix your own cocktails at home and share a virtual toast with your loved ones. Share some yummy cocktail ideas like a Choco-tini, Dry Martini or Pina Colada. And don’t forget to pair your Baileys cocktail with some Irish Cream and Caramel Crackles!

While you can grab some supplies from your local bottle-o, there are also some great cocktail kits available online that give you everything you need to shake and stir your way to success. 

Some bars and restaurants have made their signature cocktails available in bottles for delivery too, why not support your local businesses by checking if your favourite bar or restaurant have any available?

Zoom foodie night

This idea can take some prep, but if you’re celebrating someone special, why not ask them to share their favourite cuisine or recipe for you all to make and enjoy. Perhaps you want to recreate amazing handmade pasta from Italy, or Red Duck Curry from Thailand. This is also a great way to open up conversation about travel and old foodie memories. Check out some easy dinner ideas from around the world to get yout started.

Or, share a selection of snacks, cheeses and wine for everyone to get their hands on and have a tasting evening, noting down your favourites to enjoy again when you can be together next.

Zoom games night

There are some classic party games that still work a treat over Zoom. Charades, 20 questions, trivia, truth or dare and categories are all easy to play, with no equipment needed. Just be sure to have some choice dares prepared for the losers, or drinks to sip on! 

If you're willing to get more technological, you can use the whiteboard feature on Zoom to play pictionary, or choose a virtual game online such as an escape room, murder mystery or card games.
