As much as it is a good thing, we know that as soon as the president announced the 21 day lockdown, all those parents hoping to celebrate their own or their children's birthday went straight into sad mode.

Yes, you won't be able to go on that birthday weekend away, and you definitely can no longer throw that big party for your baby. 

But there are a few things we are still able to do. 

Thankfully, we are still able to share things on social media, and one mom has found the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, despite being shut in. 

A very cute lockdown theme party

Kylie Najjar created a very cute lockdown themed party which she uploaded to her Facebook page. 

Here's a look at the mom's cute lockdown themed setting for her son's 1st birthday.
