Our top 4 tips for having a great Junior Eurovision party!

You may not be heading to Warsaw or able to meet with friends and family due to Covid-19 restrictions, but that doesn't mean our Junior Eurovision 2020 party has to be any less fun! We give you our 4 favourite ways to make our celebrations this year one to remember!

This year's been tough for everyone. Christmas might look a little bit different for many due to the coronavirus restrictions and perhaps New Years' Eve too. We can't think of a better way to brighten your spirits before the festive season than to connect together through the shared passion of music. Let's celebrate the rising stars of our Junior Eurovision 2020 community and make this party the best one yet! Keep reading to get your inspiration!

1. Food, glorious food!

In our humble opinion, a party is not a party unless there's treats!

While you're singing and dancing along to the songs from this year's 12 participants, you can also celebrate their country's culture by enjoying some of their local cuisine!

How about a Maltese pastizzi to celebrate Chanel's participation in the contest? Or a pretzel from Susan's country, Germany? Or even some tompouce, one of Unity's favourite snacks from the Netherlands?

If you still need some more inspiration then check out our YouTube videos where you can watch participants try candy from the other artists' country!

Here you can watch Polish contestant Ala Tracz trying candy from different Junior Eurovision countries with her older sister Ola!

2. Dress up for the occasion!

Get right into the party vibe by putting on your best outfit! Better yet, why not dress up in your favourite country's traditional clothing to really show them your support! If you simply can't choose because they're all your favourites (which we totally understand) then put on whatever gets you into the partying mood! If your home country is participating you can also try and find some clothing that represents the colours of your national flag. Still stuck for ideas? Why not try a sparkly jacket, perhaps? Or maybe some brightly-coloured accessories will do the trick!

Maybe you can copy one of the Junior Eurovision 2020 artists' style to get you really inspired, like Sandra from Georgia:

or Sofia from Russia:

Tip 3: Make your room a Junior Eurovision stage!

Get inspired by this year's theme and decorate your party room with the colours and shapes of the 2020 stage! Try some bright blue, purple and white ribbons to tie around your drink glasses, or maybe some balloons to represent the spherical objects too! Dot some removable stars on your walls to get that magical star-studded sky effect too!

Or again, you can fill your room with the colours of your favourite country! Try some blue and yellow to celebrate Karakat from Kazakhstan or blue, red and white for Petar from Serbia!

Tip 4: Stay safe!

The group viewing experience of Junior Eurovision is so much fun! Although many of us may be partying alone or only with those we live with this year, you can still stay connected with other Junior Eurovision fans while remaining safe and keeping distance.

It's very important to make sure you follow your country's coronavirus restrictions that are put in place to keep everyone safe and healthy. We suggest you organise an online catch-up with friends so you can view the experience together - apart! You can talk, dance and sing with each other and maybe even discuss who you'll all be voting for! Or maybe you want to keep that a secret too!

Even the Junior Eurovision 2020 stars have digitally caught up with each other in the lead up to their performances, so you can too! Check out Valentina from France catching up with Soleá from Spain for example:

Or when Oleksandr from Ukraine spoke to Petar from Serbia on his Instagram page:
