IT may be tempting to just forget about celebrating your birthday – but despite lockdown you can still make the best of your big day.
This year, the only way to celebrate may be to bring the party home but the upside is that you can have a lot of fun with some savvy online orders.

Make your bash go off with a bang with a Kardashian balloon arch, or opt for an OTT cake to eat for a WEEK, like actress Kate Hudson.
Yasmin Harisha shows you how to party like the stars . . . in glorious isolation.
Eat cake for breakfast like…Kate Hudson
THE Hollywood star made sure her 41st birthday was one to remember, spending it with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, their 18-month-old daughter Rani, and Kate’s two kids from previous relationships, Ryder, 16, and Bingham, eight.
After getting a cake from the team at her gymwear brand Fabletics in the morning, Kate got another one, topped with Barbie dolls, because why have just one when you can have two?
The day continued with a “party parade” outside her house.
Kate said her “heart burst” as friends and family drove past wishing her happy birthday while adhering to social distancing.
You can order a luxury treat from one (or two) of the cake companies still delivering nationwide.
Go to lolascupcakes.co.uk for lots of tasty options.
You can even get them personalised.
Make dining in the new going out like…Lacey Turner
THE EastEnders actress was lucky enough to go to a cafe, restaurant and pub for her 32nd birthday.
Lacey’s hubby Matt Kay printed out signs to recreate croissants and coffee from Caffe Nero in their kitchen for breakfast, later wheeled out a Queen Vic drinks trolley and cooked a gourmet dinner inspired by posh London eatery The Ivy in the lounge.
You can order in restaurant-quality food from Forman & Field.
It has adapted to lockdown by supplying gourmet-cooked food and wine for next-day delivery.
Signature Brew’s Pub In A Box brings a version of your favourite boozer to you, delivering award-winning beers, snacks, glassware, a music quiz and a playlist.
See signature brew.co.uk.
Dance as if nobody’s watching like…Victoria Beckham
VICTORIA said she had “the most special birthday” as she celebrated with husband David, 44, and their kids Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and Harper, eight.
But she admitted she was missing their eldest, Brooklyn, 21, who is in New York.
For her 46th birthday, she made sure the playlist was just right.
She posted a snap of herself dancing to a DJ set by her pal Fat Tony, playing her all-time favourite hits.
A free app called Djay is easy to use and lets you mix your favourite songs for an evening of celebrations.
It is free to download on Android and IOS.
Go for a Mickey Mouse party like…Kourtney Kardashian
THE Kardashian clan are known for over-the-top parties and, while Kourtney’s 41st birthday looked a little different in isolation, it was still fancy.
When she woke up, her daughter Penelope, seven, led Kourtney downstairs to reveal a Minnie Mouse balloon arch.
She then ate Mickey Mouse-shaped pancakes for breakfast, before family and friends drove to her street to honk their horns and bring more balloons.
Keep up with the Kardashians with the Original Party Bag Company.

Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal
BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.
But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?
The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers. The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.
The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM. No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here: www.thesun.co.uk/whocareswinsappeal.
Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff
We are urging Sun readers to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.
We are backing a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.
A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.” SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”
We are asking our readers to please sign the petition below.
