With so many missed celebrations over the past few months during the safer-at-home order, I decided to call on a CELEBRATION EXPERT to help us understand not only WHY it’s so important to celebrate, but HOW to do exactly that in today’s climate.

Making up for Missed Celebrations

I welcomed The Certified Celebrator, Brittany Young, to The Sami Cone Show in July to help us understand just why it’s so important to make up for those missed celebrations.

Why It’s Important to Make Up for Missed Celebrations

Brittany started out our time together by sharing why it’s so important to make up for missed celebrations.

We’ve all missed so many milestones with family and friends over the past months, such as reunions, birthday, anniversary, graduation, a fitness goal met or maybe even an “I beat cancer” milestone moment. With restaurants and resorts starting to gradually reopen, this is a great time to revisit those celebrations, of course, all while maintaining social distancing!

How to Celebrate Safely

Many of us have taken part in safe celebrations lately, such as a drive-by birthday parade. We’ve also celebrated birthdays and graduations via dinner parties over Zoom.

These are great options if you need to stay home due to your health or the health of those you love. However, we also discussed a great option to consider for your next celebration location…

Celebrating at Gaylord Opryland Resort

Gaylord Opryland Resort has reopened! The airy massive atriums and SoundWaves are the perfect family getaway with peace of mind (or even a Momcation, girls getaway or a couples’ escape).

Opryland SoundWaves indoor social distancing chairs

The Resort has instituted new protocols and elevated cleanliness standards for the health & safety of guests. SoundWaves outdoor & indoor attractions are open, with over 11 thrilling water slides, FlowRider, lazy and rapids river, toddler play areas, adult-exclusive areas.

SoundWaves Party Rooms

When you rent a party room at SoundWaves, it includes pizza, sodas, parking and all-day access to SoundWaves. You don’t even have to spend the night at the Resort (though, why wouldn’t you want to?).

Opryland SummerFest Re-Imagined for 2020

Also this summer, the resort’s annual SummerFest event has been purposely redesigned to respect social distancing and our enhanced Commitment to Clean program. It’s the all-in-one-place for family fun, including:

  • scavenger hunts
  • a selfie spot tour
  • sunrise yoga
  • hotel and garden tours
  • delta flatboat rides
  • atrium vibes live performances
  • family fun zones
  • and much more!
